TRV Controller - Pre-Release Version v1.3.1

Thought I would break with convention and start anew thread for this release (1.3.1).

It is now available on GitHub here: TRV Controller V1.3.1

Changes since V1.2 (in no particular order) include:
  • Internal change to use XML files in order to validate Thermostats and Heat Source Controllers - previously was CSV
  • Tidied up validation and what is displayed in the Edit Device Settings dialogue and corrected inconsistencies
  • Added the capability to specify a Remote Thermostat temperature offset that will be used to modify the incoming temperature from the Remote Thermostat - supports a range from -5.0 deg C to 5.0 deg C.
  • Added a new feature to enable ON/OFF for a TRV that supports HVAC control (e.g. a Spirit). This will set the HVAC Mode to Off if the minimum Heat Setpoint is set otherwise it will set HVAC Mode to Heat. This might resolve the Spirit's tendency to sometimes remain on even though reporting it isn't.
  • Corrected bug confirmed in the post: Line '493' has error=''00''
  • Added support for a Remote Thermostat of type "hueMotionTemperatureSensor"

Just a note that you have to edit each TRV Controller and set the ON/OFF option if you want it to be used as the default is not to do that. :)

Done. Will see if this helps.

The issue of missing schedule changes, but TRV continuing to report correct status has not reoccured since I moved my setup to a 2017 iMac from an over-worked mini.

Re: TRV Controller - Pre-Release Version v1.3.1

Hi

Running 1.3.1

The Kitchen is constantly overheating - Could be sun coming through windows, cooking/dishwasher/washing machine/dryer..

But oddly the TRV Valve remains open at 100% with occasional dips to 0%

Any clues - does it need a 'whack'

Re: TRV Controller - Pre-Release Version v1.3.1

I think I have sussed it

The Spirit TRV was in INS mode!!

I pressed the action button and off it went and shut down the valve.

Seems to be working now.

Odd that it was reporting temp/valve etc but sat in INS mode.

I'll keep an eye on that and walk around the valves a every few days see if they are Ok

Anyway to remote detect it in INS mode?

Not that I am aware of. :)
