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

(New Release) Edge Driver Zigbee Temp Humidity Sensor Mc Version-5:

  • The driver is now called Zigbee Temp Sensor and Child Thermostat Mc and will be in testing, since I have only been able to test two profiles of two devices that I have. In the meantime I will keep both drivers updated.
  • In order to reduce the number of drivers installed in the Hub, I have modified the driver to be able to create a Child Virtual Thermostat in the installed devices that are needed.
  • The virtual thermostat is created by selecting the preference in device settings.

  • The device that is created has the name of Thermostat + the name of the parent device

  • It will show the temperature of the parent sensor with independent temperature compensation Preference of the parent sensor.

  • It will show the relative humidity of the parent sensor with its same compensation.

  • Thermostat has all the functions of the Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat Mc driver and works the same.

  • To delete the Child Thremostat device created when it is not needed, it is deleted as one more device in the App. False option in preferences does not delete device.

  • Child Thermostat can be created when needed again.

  • If a driver change is going to be made, the child device is also changed automatically to new driver, but it will give errors if the driver to which it is changed does not have the code to handle it. It would be better to remove it first.

  • When you go back to the original driver, the child thermostat device will also change.

  • I will continue to maintain the Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat Mc driver for motion and contact sensor devices with temperature sensor

This is the new driver version
Driver Id 6b656485-8237-41fa-bb46-7c928a97dd13
Name Zigbee Temp Sensor and Child Thermostat Mc
Package Key Zigbee_Temp_Humidity_Sensor_v5
Version 2022-10-09T15:26:26.461639748

If everything works fine, as it seems now, it may be possible to implement it for Zwave temperature sensors as well. The problem is that I don’t have any device to test.
