I am not having success getting the Thermostat Enhancement Plugin to work. I installed v1.11 in Indigo 6.0.0 beta by clicking on the TEP install file. The installation seems to work as the plug-in appears in Indigo under the plug-in tab. I can see the reports in the event log...

Enabling plugin "Thermostat Enhancement Add-On 1.11"
Starting plugin "Thermostat Enhancement Add-On 1.11" (pid 30479)
Started plugin "Thermostat Enhancement Add-On 1.11"

I have created a Thermostat Enhancement plug-in device and assigned it to monitor my Insteon thermostat model 2441TH. The plug-in device shows the correct device ID under "MonitoredThermostat", but it fails to detect any of the values or log any of the activity.


Yes, when you open the Thermostat device in Indigo, what is listed as the "Model"?

I may need to add that into the code, if it's a thermostat model that is relatively new.

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

Having the same issue here with my Venstar T1700 thermostat.
Is there anything I can do to help troubleshoot the problem?

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

Are there any suggestions on how to graph historical data? Or is that better addressed in SQL?

I plan to add that into the Thermostat Enhancement plugin, but I need to find a good method to generate the graph locally. With my older version, I would send the data to Google, and use their plotting API. But there is significant limitations on that, including the complexity of the graph.

I am considering making the TEP into a SQL based plugin, using the SQL tracking built-in to Indigo to help improve the accuracy of the data, and to allow easier graphing.

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

In the Thermostat Device… Model is listed as such:

Model: Thermostat (2441TH)

Thanks, that's what I needed to solve the issue:

Here's a version that should work with that Thermostat.

Supports the Following Thermostats
▪ Thermostat (2491T7E)
▪ Thermostat (2441V)
▪ Thermostat (2441TH)
▪ Thermostat Adapter (Venstar w/Adapter)
▪ Nest Thermostat

Changes
⁃ v1.31 - Released 11/12/2013
⁃ Added Support for Thermostat Adapter (2441TH).

▪ v1.30 - Released TBD
⁃ Added the NEST WiFi Thermostat to the acceptable Thermostat's List
⁃ Added User Overrides for the Hi & Low temperature
⁃ Restructured the Thermostat Device Window
⁃ Minor changes in code.

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

can one graph with the plugin? I seem to recall there was an IWS version that would do that?

I need to find a good way to create the graphs locally, via python.

There was a different version of the plugin for IWS that would use Google Chart to produce the graphics, but I ran into issues with reliability with that method.

So to answer the question, not under Indigo v5 or v6. The older plugin will still work with v4.

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

Still no go on the 2114TH. No data..

Now with that said, do I need to do something to get the plug to pull the data from the Thermostat?

Or does the plug occasionally pull the info for me?

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

The 1.31 plugin was not working with my 2441TH either on Indigo V5 or V6, so I dug into the code and changed line 25 of "/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 6/Plugins/Thermostat.indigoPlugin/Contents/Server Plugin/plugin.py" from "Thermostat Adapter (2441TH)" to "Thermostat (2441TH)" and it started working.

Re: Thermostat Enhancement Plugin

Hi. I'm having a problem getting the thermostat monitor working as well. I installed the v1.31plugin. Created a Device of Type: Thermostat Enhancement Addon, Model: Thermostat Monitor, set it to my Insteon Thermostat (named Thermostat 1 in indigo) which is the 2441TH, Set the high and low values, and the email for notification. and made a control page to try and monitor a few things.

The control page shows the thermostat monitored as an indigo device ID 1774592253 (instead of the name of my thermostat: "Thermostat 1" (I only have one) but this is pointing to the correct device (thats the ID associated to my thermostat)

I also have the control page set up to show Fan last on, Heat Last on, heat on duration, Daily Heat on duration, Weekly, and Monthly. All those values just show up as a zero

heres my specs

indigo v 6.0.11
Insteon 2441TH thermostat with Humidity Sensor, with Polling set to off in the config Firmware 0D (i2CS engine)
your plugin v 1.31

any suggestions?

thanks Brent


<update: I figured out how to modify the plugin.py file (for those who don't know, right click the plugin in the /Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 6/Plugins/Thermostat.indigoPlugin and choose show package contents, then double click the plugin.py file to edit it--i used Xcode to edit, and save)

edited line 25 as mentioned previously and changed "Thermostat Adapter (2441TH)" to "Thermostat (2441TH)"

now getting info filled in on my control page.

so I'll watch it for a while and post back here if I experience any problems.

thanks
Brent
