I try to display all my thermostats in HomeKit after having successfully set them up in openHAB. My problem is: I read that a HomeKit termostat mandatorily has four settings (HomeKit Add-on - System Integrations | openHAB):
Allocating the CurrentTemperature and the TargetTemperature in the metadata of my termostat-groups is easy - there are two corresponding things as group members for these settings. But now I have only one more thing available (which has been called “Thermo function” by OpenHAB after the scan for things) for the remaining two settings.
I am now reluctant whether I can simply allocate both settings, the CurrentHeatingCoolingMode and the TargetHeatingCoolingMode to this very same thing by using the ‘multiple metadata’ option, or whether this may harm my hardware (actuators)?
Can anyone give me some advise before I try it out?
The termostats/actuators are Bticino/Legrand-Tools from the MyHome-System, maybe this information is of additional value. I integrated them into OpenHAB by using the MyHome-binding and running a scan.
Thanks for your help,
