Searching ZigBee Thermostat

Hello everybody,

can you recommend me a thermostat that works with a ZigBee Binding?

It is important to me that the valve position can be read and set.

Thank you,

That might depend on your heating system. :wink:
Here in the US, except for a few very old homes, the heating systems do not have valves & plumbing.

what zigbee thermostat do you guys use?

Actually I have a programmable thermostat but not a smart home one.

Hi, I’m using a Eurotronics Spirit ZigBee Thermostat.
I’m able to set the temperature, but not the valve position.
Technically it is possible to set a valve position via zigbee according to:
It seems to be a non standard function which seems to be not implemented in the zigbee binding as of now.

So far the binding can’t do it.
But that can still be implied.

does anyone else know of a zigbee thermostat that provides this function?

As far as I know it is not a standard ZigBee function, so unless someone adds this information to the binding, then no devices will support this in the binding since by default the binding only implements ZigBee standards.

The position in a valve is pretty hard to recognize… Normally you´ll only need to read/control its state (open/close).

Also a thermostat is not a valve… Normally thermostats controls a valve, (again, it open or close the valve). The valve CAN be build into the thermostat, (like the one linked to above). But it could also just be a controller thermostat, which sends an on/off to an external valve (actuator) or a valve in your boiler…
Like this one:

So in short - You need to define, what sort of thermostat you need… Zigbee is just the communication part :smiley:
