I think it needs to be HVAC - I agree it’s not perfect, but we have to live with the categories that OH provides…
I’ve just done a database update an hour or so back, but will try and do another today to get this included since you have limited time with the unit.
A couple of points though…
Can you reformat the descriptions so that where there is a list of bullets, you use the bullet formatter in the editor rather than just putting numbers into the text - this just means when it gets exported everything is properly formatted rather than probably ending up in one line.
You probably need to add the associations. This is a ZWave plus device so there will be a lifeline (that said, the binding should automatically detect that, so maybe it’s not super important).
likewise - you might want to add configuration parameters if there is anything you want to adjust?
I’ll resolve the other two errors (the channel and thingid ones).
I have now used numbered list. I hope that’s fine.
About the Params I’m not clear yet. There are several parameters that can be set through the panel itself but I don’t yet know which of those would make sense to be added. Especially the Security 2 stuff should somehow go into I think.
I’m thinking of buying several of their thermostats as replacements in my house. Are they fully compatible with openHAB yet as that is what I’m using for the rest of the house ? I gathered it’s only in the snapshot version from this thread, so when will it make it into the stable version ?
Also I’m being very dense but how do I set the binding up in openHab. I’ve downloaded and installed the latest snapshot assuming I would see a Heltun binding in the list on the Paper UI but it’s not there. So I assume I have to somehow do it in the config files but I’m really struggling as to how to do that and what file needs putting where to create the binding ?
A step by step guide would be very very helpful. I don’t want to buy 6 of these thermostats to discover that I cannot use them in openHab !
There is no Heltun binding, for this you could wait forever and a day. Heltun are ZWave+ devices. So what you need is the snapshot of the Zwave Binding. But as long as you don’t have one attached to your house and included to the ZWave network it will not show up.
I do have z-wave devices already which I bought to trial a switch over from PLCBus (a protocol that has died so I can’t get replacement components) to another protocol.
So will the Heltun be discovered by openHAB as an unknown device but with its entire command protocol in place or will it just have very basic functionality ? I noticed that the Heltun is not on the list of supported Z-wave devices as yet. Is that because the list needs updating or because it is not officially certified as a z-wave device yet ?
For me running a house with an air source heat pump, thermal buffer tank and a multizone UFH system I want thermostats that are as capable as possible and this seems to fit the bill. Energy efficiency is key in an ASHP house in order to just stay warm as much as to save money! I may never use many of the functions but want to future proof the house as much as possible.
