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

Thank you so much @Mariano_Colmenarejo for all the time you put into these drivers, it’s truely a lifesaver since I can no longer use webcore. Using this driver to heat upstairs bedrooms with my wood stove turbine and radiant panels is really to do using routines and works really well.

My ST app is in french and some elements in the driver are ine french and others are in english. Is there a way to get the english parts of the driver translated in french? Is it something you’d have to do on your side, or is there a way I could do it myself?

Also, sometimes the temperature readings are wrong. When I look at the hourly temperature history, it’s usually between 20° and 22°, and I see some lines that says, for instance, 9.9°, and I know the temperature never dropped to that point. Some lines (hours) have no readings at all, but it always been like this even with the default driver (DTH?).

Hi @FauxPalindrome

The stock capabilities use stock translations and the preferences and custom capabilities do not have translations, they are in English, as simple as possible, or with vocabulary similar to the manuals.

Making translations requires creating a file for each capability or preference for each language, in yml or json format and uploading it to the API and then creating a new presentation for each capability that includes the translations created.

Sorry, I don’t plan to go into this, I don’t know if I know how to do it either.
The custom capabilities are created in my namespace and could only be modified by me.

I think I’ll wait for smartthings to include an automatic translator. :wink:

The temperature readings that the driver emits are those that it receives from the device, driver does not perform any calculation, it only divides the received value by 100 and the app adds the correction that it has in settings.

The code is common for all users and models and I have not seen or reported it to me by anyone else.

would have to capture the value with the cli at that moment to analyze and see what the device sends.

Thanks for the clarification!

Of course murphy’s law had to hit after I said it was working flawlessly. Now for some reason all my devices that use this driver have been showing offline in the last 20 minutes.
I’ve rebooted the hub, I saw them online for a split second and they went offline right away.
All my other devices are working as usual… :pensive:

Hi @FauxPalindrome

I don’t know what could have happened, the driver has not changed or been updated.
I don’t know if it has something to do with the performance of the firmware of the hub

Actually, I think it was a problem on ST’s side. A lot of people are reporting errors tonight with edge drivers and internal server errors. I did get an internal server error last night at some point.
The sensors came back online after being offline for 2-3 hours last night and have been working well since.

New version 4.5 of Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat Mc controller

As I have seen that several users are looking for how to control a thermostat with the values of various sensors, this version driver includes:

  • Added functions for the thermostat to be controlled with temperatures from various sensors that are paired to the same driver:
  • Added preference to select This Thermostat Controls Muti Sensor: value true or false (default False)
    • IMPORTANT: It should only be activated on the thermostat that will control the temperature.
    • If more than one device per group is marked as true, the calculations are stopped and the user is informed to solve it.

  • Added preference to assign the device to a group of sensors that will control the thermostat. Values from 0 to 10. (default = 0 No group assigned)

  • If Group Assigned value = 0 then capability device Info will show: “Device not assigned to any Group

  • Added preference to select the types of calculation that will be done with the temperatures of the group of sensors:
    • Average: the calculation of the average temperature of all the sensors of the group is performed
    • Maximum: The maximum temperature of the group sensors is used
    • Minimum: The minimum temperature of the group sensors is used
    • The temperature result of the calculation will be used to control only this thermostat of Group and will be presented in the Info Panel capability with the next expected state change.

  • Added a custom capability Device Info: where the information of the Group will be displayed, of the calculated temperature of the group and type of calculation followed by the temperatures of all the devices included in the group. The device that acts as controller thermostat is marked with * Device Controller: Name of the device.
  • The information of this capability is updated when any sensor in the group sends a new temperature value.
  • I have tested it with three Samjin motion sensors (aeotec)

DeviceTemperature capability shows the own sensor temperature

The operation as a group is totally optional and it is enough to not select or in the preference of the assigned group and the use of the thermostat as a group and each device will work independently.

If you don’t need to control the Thermostat with sensor groups, then you just have to keep the preference group assignment to value = 0, which is by default

In fact, we can have a thermostat working as a group and the other devices in the group working as independent thermostats or simple temperature sensors.

  • Added preference option to select Single or Multiple Tile @Sylvain

In order not to increase the number of profiles excessively, I have removed the adjustment option from the set point temperature steps. I have left only the adjustment of steps of 0.5º.
If you want to change less than 0.5º you can manually enter the value with the keyboard

Please notify me of any errors you find and I will try to correct them.

I will try to implement it in the other Zwave and Zigbee drivers with child thermostat

Driver version will be updated automatically

 Name         Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat Mc 
 Version      2023-01-27T17:22:15.564550164

Users who were using the Beta version Zigbee Temp Sensor with Thermostat GROUPS must make a change to this new version of the driver, they will not lose any settings or routines and scenes


Hi @Mariano_Colmenarejo, Again thanks for this. I have been testing and the functionality is excellent. Would it be possible to remove “State” as I am still receiving the “The device hasn’t updated all of its status yet. Check again later.” as the State is not available.

Hi @Bluesstatsman

If the device works well, do not pay much attention to this message from the app.
It can appear when the app’s waiting time is exceeded due to network delays, which should have been reduced to speed it up.


Can you add this one?

Hi @ex-Zottel

Sorry, this device use cluster EF00 and not works with standard clusters.

There is a specific thread

I’ve been using the smartthings buttons as well for the temperature sensor for a thermostat. The button are stuck to the wall and presses are used to set different base modes and temperatures. e.g. Press = 16deg Off, double press = 16deg heat and hold =21deg heat. I’m using it with aeotec switches to turn on and of far infrared panels.
The groovy virtual thermostats have stopped working so would really appreciate having the an edge driver I could use, thanks

Hi @Ross_Benton

With which temperature sensor do you want to use a Virtual Thermostat?


The aeotec/samsung zigbee button

I will try to add it to the driver.
Another user asked for it and I had forgotten

When it’s done I’ll let you know and try it

Try if ST Button works with this driver version
If works fine I will merge with Mc driver

@Mariano_Colmenarejo Yes it seems to be working. It reads the temperature, set it to heat and change the setpoint to above current temperature and it changes to heating. and all the buttons do what they’re meant to as well. Cheers

Added the smartthings Button to be able to use its temperature sensor as a thermostat.

If you have used the BUTTON version you must change to this driver version from the app, you will not lose any routine, scene or setting

It works great for what I could see. Buttons work as usual, temperature read is the same as before, and the computations to change the thermostat mode (heating, pending heat, idle…) work as they are expected to. Fantastic job! Thanks!!


I have been using this driver with my samjin/SmartThings button (IM6001-BTP15) in the last 3 days, it works, but doesn’t half the time.
With the default driver, I get temp readings in history every 10 minutes and it never missed one. With this driver, I get whole hours without readings in history. It’s missing about half a day every day. Also, since yesterday, when I go into the driver settings, it’s just a blank page.
I use routines for button actions and they’ve been working well so far

Hi @FauxPalindrome
You may have to uninstall the device and reinstall it directly to this driver.
If the settings are not shown, some preferences may have a different format from the stock driver to this
