(EDGE Driver-Mc): Zigbee Temp Sensor and Child Thermostat Mc, Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat Mc

New version 4 of the Zigbee Temp Humidity Sensor Mc driver.

To make it easier to create slightly more complex automations and need to create fewer routines:

  • Routines that require dynamically changing the temperature value in the comparison condition, for example at a certain time or according to the location mode… change the reference to 20º.

  • Routines that may need a minimum and maximum range for comparison. (Using in the same rule the Temperature capability and the custom Temperature Comparison capability)

  • I have added these new functions for temperature, humidity and illuminance, according to the profile of the device used.
    I will only count the temperature one, the Humidity an Illuminance work the same.

  • I have added capabilities to introduce the comparison value to be used in the driver and automations:
    • For temperature, enter the value in ºC or ºF, depending on your location and you have to choose the ºC and ºF units in preferences since the driver does not have access to know which units the app is using.

  • The driver compares the current temperature with the entered reference value and emits an event with the result of the comparison “Equal or Up” or “Down” to a capability, which is only seen and used in automations/conditions to trigger the routine. (I don’t know how to compare =, >=, or <=, since they overlap and would give wrong results.)

@nayelyz This capability allows the entry of decials for temperature (-50º to 250º), but the app only shows the value rounded to an integer. Let’s hope they fix it

The update will be manual, since it has several new custom capbilities and it is better for each one to update whenever they want and clear the app cache to see the new VIDs.

To facilitate the update, I am going to change version 3 to the name Zigbee Temp Humidity Sensor Mc-(OLD) .

I will publish the new version 4.0 with the original name Zigbee Temp Humidity Sensor Mc.

In this way, your driver installed will have the rename with (OLD), indicating that there is a new version available and you can install the new version with a driver change whenever you want
