Re: TRV Controller Discussion Thread

Total aside and a bit off-topic, but thought I would try here first as it may be something encountered in development. Not seen any mention during a brief skim.

Is there any way to make the Spirits remember they are already installed after a battery replacement?

I don't mean associated with the z-wave controller, that seems to be okay.

What I mean is the Spirit flashing the green button with 'Ins' on the front, waiting for the physical valve actuation part of the install to happen.

I was wondering if there was a command that would cause the Spirit to perform the mechanical install stage (again) without pressing the button or, better yet, to turn off the need for this second stage.

Sam.

Not that I have been able to find.

Autolog spent some time looking at it - he was unable to detect it going into INS mode, so not hopeful :-)

I am afraid I haven't discovered a way to detect it. :|

Re: TRV Controller Discussion Thread

To make the Heating / TRV more fault tolerant is it possible to add a zwave thermostat to the room the TRV is in and just add the TRV to the association for the thermostat?

Then set thermostat to use external temp sensor?

I noticed my SSR302 Boiler Controller allows 4 associations.

So in theory one association to Indigo, and one to the lounge thermostat another for the kitchen an last one for master bedroom.

Then even if the Mac Indigo is running on died heating would carry on working ?

An idea?

Re: TRV Controller Discussion Thread

Maybe someone already suggested...

It would be nice to be able to trigger "summer / winter / vacations / holidays" modes - i.e. to change all TRVs schedules automatically based on some variable.

See this post: Question about weekday schedule

This should enable you to setup a conditional schedule (to check a variable) that will run the appropriate Action Group you setup with the required schedules. :)

Not so much .......

Restarting Indigo did not refresh battery level.

Unless the new batteries I put in are at 20% also, a possibility but unlikely.


If you define and sync on the TRV you will get the refreshed battery state. You might need to try a few times if it says that the device is asleep.

Re: TRV Controller Discussion Thread

Another idea.

To provide/support temperature readings based on the external temperature sensor, especially useful in case of no controlling device available.

Not sure I understand what you mean. Can you provide a bit more detail?
