Stella-Z Thermostat Controller (V2.1.5) Information

This Plugin (V2) controls Stella-Z thermostats in a multi-thermostat installation and enhances the standard device with features such as schedule control, schedule extend, temperature boost and advance to next schedule processing.

Changes v2.1.2 -> v2.1.5.

This is a small release update with the following additions/fixes:

  • Added the ability to 'hide temperature message broadcasts in Event Log' (configured in Edit Device Settings)
  • Added support for the following types of Remote Thermostat: Aeon 4 in 1, Oregon Scientific Temp Sensor, Fibaro FGMS001 "Eye of Sauron" Motion Sensor (the Netatmo is already supported).
  • Improved checks (so that they now work properly) to warn if the required z-wave trigger hasn't been set-up.
  • Removed requirement to set-up schedule for "keep-alive" as this is handled automatically by the plugin (it has been like this since the release of version 2 but the documentation and program code persisted - now corrected and removed).
  • Various small bug fixes.
  • Documentation enhancements - particularly associated with setting up the Z-Wave triggers - and minor clarifications.

Changes v2.1.1 -> v2.1.2.

Version 2.1.2 supports the millisecond precision of time stamps in Indigo 6.0.12. Earlier versions of the plugin don't handle the new time stamp format when handling Z-Wave event triggers.

The Plugin description has been changed to "Autolog Stella-Z" to differentiate it from other plugins I am developing e.g. Squeezebox Controller :)

Improvements
Version 2 of the plugin improves on version 1 in the following ways:
  • Bug fixes
  • Extend processing support
  • Schedule processing internalised to the plugin - no longer using native Indigo scheduling
  • Improved remote thermostat support
  • More efficient internal and robust processes for managing the thermostats
Note: see installation notes below if you are updating from version 1

Download

You can download the latest version of the plugin here: Stella-Z Thermostat Controller (V2.1.5)

Overview

This Plugin controls Stella-Z thermostats and links them to some form of heat source controller (e.g. boiler on/off switch) so that when a Stella-Z is "calling for heat" the heat source is turned on. Likewise, when none of the controlled Stella-Zs are "calling for heat" the heat source is turned off.

The Plugin also provides a number of additional functions, namely:
  • Basic controls e.g. turn on/off, set heat setpoint, increase/decrease heat setpoint etc.
  • Control of morning and evening heating schedules
  • Advance to next schedule or schedule end
  • Extend active schedule
  • Turn on for a period of time if not in a schedule
  • Boost current measured temperature for a period of time
  • Use a remote thermostat to control the Stella-Z rather than the Stella-Z's internal temperature measurement
  • Lime protection to prevent the valves sticking when unused for extended periods (e.g. summertime)

The Stella-Z Thermostat Controller oversees the control of the Stella-Z and will turn it 'on' when heat is required and turn it 'off' when its heat setpoint is reached. You will therefore see situations where the Stella-Z Controller is 'on' but the Stella-Z is 'off'. The Stella-Z Controller is constantly monitoring the temperature provided either by the Stella-Z or Remote Thermostat and controlling the Stella-Z accordingly. Whilst at the moment the control algorithm is fairly simple, this can obviously be enhanced in the future once more experience is gained with operating the Stella-Z.

CHECK LIST
For effective operation make sure you come back and review this check list when you have finished your set-up :)
  • Install Plugin
  • Configure Plugin
  • Configure Stella-Z
  • Configure Stella-Z Thermostat Controller including AM and/or PM schedules
  • Set-up Z-Wave monitoring
    VERY IMPORTANT: If this isn't done the plugin won't work - make sure you set this up as shown in the Z-Wave Trigger Configuration instructions below.
  • Lime Protection (if required)

Installation

The Stella-Zs have presented a few challenges and Indigo has now been tweaked by Matt to accommodate its idiosyncrasies :)

The Stella-Z works by waking according to a user specified schedule e.g. every 5, 10 or 15 minutes etc. When it wakes up, Indigo fetches the Stella-Z's mode, temperature, heat setpoint and the battery status (twice a day or so). The more responsive you want the Stella-Z, the shorter the wake-up time should be. That is the longer the wake-up interval is, the longer you might have to wait before it will respond to a command from Indigo e.g. to turn on. However having a shorter wake-up time can cause a wake-up to be skipped if too many Stella-Zs have to be processed at the same time. In practise, I have found that it is best to set short wake-up times for Stella-Zs that you want to respond quickly and longer for those that you don't.

Stella-Z configuration
When this Plugin is used to control a Stella-Z, it is best to set the following options in the Stella-Z's configuration (the example below is showing a 5 minute wake-up):

Setting the above options will cause less z-wave traffic and reduce unnecessary messages being set to the Event Log.

The Stella-Z should be set to permanently run in 'Heat On' mode:

Plugin Configuration
Download and install the Plugin as normal.
You will be presented with a 'Configure Autolog Plugin' dialogue as follows:

pluginConfiguration.png (62.22 KiB) Viewed 1392 times
(Note: This dialogue is also available from the Indigo main menu: Plugins > Autolog Plugin > Configure...)

Select the required options:
  • Lime Protection:
    If checked [default] this will fully open the valves of all the controlled Stella-Z thermostats and then close them according a schedule (see below)
  • Lime Protection Schedule:
    Select a schedule to invoke Lime Protection. The schedule should typically be set-up to run once a week. I run mine on a Saturday at 11:00 am. The 'Autolog Actions', 'Perform Lime Protection' should be selected for the schedule action. The length of time Lime Protection takes is typically two times the longest set wake-up time of the Stella-Zs being controlled by the Plugin. The length of time is defined as follows:
    • Start Lime Protection and make sure that Heat Source Controller stays off for duration of Lime Protection
    • Then for each Stella-Z,
      • Set Heat setpoint to 50 deg C (maximum Heat Setpoint value) to force valve open
      • Wait for Stella-Z to wake-up be sent Heat Setpoint [50 deg C] command
      • Set Heat setpoint to 6 deg C (Frost Protection Heat Setpoint value) to force valve close
      • Wait for Stella-Z to wake-up be sent Heat Setpoint [6 deg C] command
      • Lime Protection ended for Stella-Z
    • Lime protection ended when all Stella-Zs processed - resume normal operation
    If the Lime Protection is taking too long, you can cancel it with the 'Autolog Actions' - 'Cancel Lime Protection'. This could also be set-up as a schedule to run say an hour after the initial schedule.
  • Bypass:
    The Plugin has been tested with the following Heat Source Controllers:
    • 1 Channel Boiler Actuator (SSR303 / ASR-ZW)
    Recognizing that other devices may be required, checking this item will disable the Plugin's validity checking and allow any device to be used.
    It has been found to work with standard relay type devices (supporting On and Off functions). However, results aren't guaranteed and might not work and so it would be better to add specific support in for a new device. Just request this in the forum :)

Updating from Version 1
After installing the plugin you will need to edit and save each of your Autolog thermostat device definitions. You will need to make a note of your existing thermostat schedule times and re-enter them for each thermostat. During this updating process you may get some errors occurring in the Event Log which can probably be ignored unless they re-occur on a server restart. I also recommend stopping and starting the server once you have done this to ensure a complete refresh of all the definitions.

Device Configuration
You specify a new Stella-Z Thermostat Controller for each Stella-Z you want to control i.e. there is a 1-1 relationship between the devices.

Create a Stella-Z Thermostat Controller in the Home Window, Devices tab by clicking 'New...' and then selecting a Type of 'Autolog Plugin' and a Model of 'Stella-Z Thermostat Controller'. You will be presented with a configuration dialogue similar to the following:

Specify the following options:
  • Hide temperature message broadcasts in Event Log
    The will hide messages that are broadcast to the Event Log when the temperature changes on a Stella-Z or associated Remote Thermostat.
  • Stella-Z Thermostat:
    Select a Stella-Z to be controlled.
  • Heat Source Controller:
    Select a Heat Source Controller. (Note: See Plugin configuration above if you controller isn't listed)
  • Remote Control:
    Select if you want the Stella-Z to be controlled by a separate thermostat. This might be useful if your Stella-Z is sited in a position that doesn't give required readings. For example, one of my Stella-Zs is controlling a kick-space heater in the kitchen - the Stella-Z is at floor level behind the kitchen unit kick boards. Another reason might be to get more accurate temperature readings. I have discovered that the Stella-Z can be affected by heat from the radiator it is controlling - it therefore reports the temperature as being higher than it actually is.
  • Remote Thermostat:
    Select a remote thermostat. This has been tested with the following thermostats:
    • Secure SRT321 / HRT4-ZW
    • Netatmo (as supported by Berkinet's Plugin)
    • Secure SES301
    • Aeon 4 in 1 [User Tested]
    • Oregon Scientific Temp Sensor [User Tested]
    • Fibaro FGMS001 "Eye of Sauron" Motion Sensor
  • remote Setpoint Adjustment
    Select if you want to be able to alter the heat setpoint by manually adjusting the remote thermostat (if available). For example, on the Secure SRT321 / HRT4-ZW it is a dial that is used to adjust the heat setpoint. Note: If you manually adjust the heat setpoint, the Autolog plugin will maintain the heat setpoint at the manual setting until either overidden by a schedule (see below) or the heat setpoint is adjusted via an Autolog plugin device action.
  • Stella-Z Delta Max:
    Select a delta maximum to be applied to the Stella-Z to ensure it doesn't turn-off before the remote thermostat reaches its heat setpoint. Note: This is useful in the case where the Stella-Z is showing a higher temperature than the remote thermostat because for example it is getting affected by heat from the radiator.
  • Default ON temperature:
    The heat setpoint to be set if the thermostat is turned on (by 'Autolog Actions' - 'Turn Thermostat On')
  • Default OFF temperature:
    The heat setpoint to be set if the thermostat is turned off (by 'Autolog Actions' - 'Turn Thermostat Off')
  • Extend Increment Minutes:
    Specify the incremental number of minutes to extend the heating schedule by. Each extend will add this number of minutes to the schedule until the maximum extend minutes is reached. A further extend will then cancel the extend and reset the schedule back to its default.
  • Extend Maximum Minutes:
    The maximum minutes to extend by. Exceeding this value will then cancel the extend and reset the schedule back to its default.
    Note: If you Extend during an active schedule, the schedule will be extended. If you extend outside an active schedule, then the heating will be turned "on" using the Default ON temperature for the duration of the Extend and then turned "off" using the Default OFF temperature.
  • Boost Delta:
    The delta to be added to the current ambient temperature measured by the Stella-Z and then set as the heat setpoint for a thermostat boost ('Autolog Actions' - 'Boost'). This facility is useful to just give a quick burst of heat to a Stella-Z controlled radiator.
  • Boost Minutes:
    Length of time for the boost to remain active.

    Note: Schedule processing has changed in version 2 of the plugin. The schedules are now defined in the Plugin's configuration rather than using individual Indigo Schedules.
  • AM Heating?:
    Select if you want AM (morning) heating
  • AM Heating ON Time:
    Define a time (HH:MM) to to turn AM (morning) heating on.
  • AM Heating OFF Time:
    Define a time (HH:MM) to to turn AM (morning) heating off.
  • AM Heat Setpoint:
    Select a heat setpoint for AM (morning) heating
  • PM Heating?: Select if you want PM (evening) heating
  • PM Heating ON Time:
    Define a time (HH:MM) to to turn PM (evening) heating on.
  • PM Heating OFF Time:
    Define a time (HH:MM) to to turn PM (evening) heating off.
  • PM Heat Setpoint:
    Select a heat setpoint for PM (evening) heating

    Once you have completed the configuration, save it.

Z-Wave Trigger Configuration
This is a very important part of the set-up. If these triggers aren't set-up, the plugin won't work as it needs to know when Stella-Z and Remote thermostat events are happening.

Ideally the plugin would set this up for you but unfortunately at the time of writing (Indigo V6.0.18) the Indigo Object Model (IOM) isn't complete in this area and therefore it has to be manually. If and when this is completed the plugin can be updated to handle this.

Complete the Monitor Stella-Z Z-Wave and Monitor Remote Thermostat Z-Wave as shown next:
  • Monitor Stella-Z Z-Wave :
    A trigger MUST be set-up for each Stella-Z Thermostat Controller device.
    If this isn't done then a warning will be written to the Indigo event Log and the Plugin will NOT work.
    Specify a trigger as follows:
    • Set up the details on the Trigger tab as follows:
      • Type = Z-Wave Event
      • Event = Z-Wave Command
      • Event Settings:
        • From = The Stella-Z being controlled
        • Received = Temperature Update
    • Set up the details on the the Actions tab as follows:
      • Type = Monitor Stella-Z Z-wave (Autolog Action)
      • Device = 'Stella-Z Thermostat Controller' that is controlling the Stella-Z specified in the trigger
  • Monitor Remote Thermostat Z-Wave :
    A trigger MUST be set-up for each for each Remote Thermostat (if defined in the Stella-Z Thermostat Controller Device).
    If this isn't done then a warning will be written to the Indigo event Log and the Plugin will NOT work.
    Specify a trigger as follows:
    • Set up the details on the Trigger tab as follows:
      • Type = Z-Wave Event
      • Event = Z-Wave Command
      • Event Settings:
        • From = The remote Thermostat being monitored.
        • Received = Any Command
    • Set up the details on the the Actions tab as follows:
      • Type = Monitor remote Thermostat Z-wave (Autolog Action)
      • Device = 'Stella-Z Thermostat Controller' that is using the Remote Thermostat specified in the trigger

The set-up of the plugin should now be complete and the Stella-Zs should now be controlled by the plugin :)

Usage
The Stella-Z Thermostat Controller controls the Stella-Z and operates it according to the predefined schedules. If you want to skip a schedule, just deselect Heating AM and/or PM above and the Plugin will ignore it.

The current mode of the Stella-Z Thermostat Controller is shown against the device in the Home Window device tab list. The three states shown are:
  • Off:
    Grey dot - 'Off'.
  • On:
    Green dot - 'Heat On'.
  • Delay:
    Green dot with timer image - 'Delay'. This indicates that the the Plugin has detected that the controlled Stella-Z has missed a wake-up. When this state is shown it masks the 'on' / ''off' state of the Stella-Z Thermostat Controller.

In addition to its standard operating mode, the Plugin provides for a number of 'Autolog Actions' that enable finer control, namely:
  • Set Heat Setpoint:
    This will set the heat setpoint of this device.
  • Increase Heat Setpoint:
    This will increase the heat setpoint of this device by the specified delta
  • Decrease Heat Setpoint:
    This will decrease the heat setpoint of this device by the specified delta
  • Turn Thermostat On:
    This will set the heat setpoint to the value specified by the 'Default ON temperature' in the device's configuration.
  • Turn Thermostat Off:
    This will set the heat setpoint to the value specified by the 'Default OFF temperature' in the device's configuration.
  • Toggle Thermostat On/Off:
    This will toggle the device's state i.e. turn on if off and turn off if on
  • Advance:
    This will advance to the next schedule time. For example, if the time is currently between the end of the AM schedule and start of the PM schedule then the PM on schedule state will be set. Once a schedule event occurs, advance processing is cancelled. This can be used to quickly start a scheduled heating early or end an active heating schedule early.
  • Cancel Advance:
    This will cancel the advance state and uses the current time to set the device to a state as determined by the schedules.
  • Toggle Advance:
    This will turn set an advance on if currently off and vice-versa
  • Boost:
    This will boost the temperature for a specified period of time. This facility is useful to just give a quick burst of heat to a Stella-Z controlled radiator.
  • Cancel Boost:
    Cancels the boost and uses the current time to set the device to a state as determined by the schedules.
  • Toggle Boost:
    Turns boost on if currently off and vice-versa
  • Extend:
    This will extend the heating schedule for a specified period of time or turn on the heating for a specified period of time if not in a schedule.
  • Cancel Extend:
    Cancels the extend and uses the current time to set the device to a state as determined by the schedules.
  • Show Schedules:
    outputs the Autolog thermostat schedules to the Event Log:

      Autolog Plugin                    Thermostat-08 = 264 [Interval =  13]
    This can be useful to spot Z-wave clashes. Note: Even though you specify exact number of minutes for Stella-Z wakeups, in fact these wakeups tend to drift over time and therefore it isn't possible to evenly space out the wakeups of the Stella-Zs.

  • Extend:
    Shows whether extend is 'on' or 'off' i.e. currently active or not
  • Extend Requested:
    Shows whether extend has been requested 'on' or 'off' . It may have been requested but not yet actioned. (This is probably more of an internal flag)

  • Current PM Heat Setpoint:
    The PM Heat Setpoint currently set for the Stella-Z Thermostat Controller.
  • Temperature:
    The temperature currently being monitored by the Stella-Z Thermostat Controller. This could either be provided by the Stella-Z or Remote Thermostat.
  • Remote Temperature:
