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

(NEW RELEASE) Version 3.0 of Edge Driver Zigbee Temp Sensor and Thermostat Mc:

Improvements and bug fixes:

  1. Added Thermostat Lock function:
  • This function allows to maintain settings of Thermostat Mode, Temperature, Fan… until we unlock it manually or with an routine or scene and without having to cancel the daily schedule made with routines.
  • It is automatically activated when Off, manual or away modes are selected, so the programmed automations will not change the settings set.
  • If you want to make a temporary temperature change, it is not necessary to lock the thermostat, you just have to make the temperature change and it will be maintained until the next programmed period.
  • This function prevents the use of a virtual device to perform these functions.

  1. Added temperature presets for ECO Mode in preferences

  2. Added in preferences an option to choose the scale of steps for the adjustment of the temperature set points. The stock presentation of +/- 1º is not very precise, especially for ºC. Have to save energy!!

  • You can choose steps of +/- 0.5º (default) or +/- 0.1º

  • For the change of presentation to take effect, you have to close the app and clear the cache of the app on the Android phone.

  • The presentation to enter the temperature by typing the value does not work well, it is already reported to @nayelyz

  • With the +/-0.1º scale, in some values, a value with many decimal places is presented for 2 sec and then shows the correct value, with 1 decimal place. It is a problem of presentation too.

4.Added an information field, below the temperature set point, showing:

  • The device temperature unrounded (2 decimal places), which is used to calculate state changes.
  • The Next Expected State of the Thermostat and the temperature at which it will occur.
  • This can help to understand at what temperatures the state changes will be made with the different configurable options, Differential Temperature or Underfloor Heating.

As the update has new Custom Capabilities and preferences it is necessary to clear the cache of the app on the phone after the update. A hub reboot should not be necessary.

For this reason, the update is not performed automatically, it will be done by changing the driver on the device, driver menu, select another driver. You do not need unistall device and not lost routines , scenes or settings.

The thermostat will not control the Thermostat State until a new first event of the current temperature is received. You can force an event by heating the sensor a little with your hand.

To facilitate the update, I am going to change version 2.2 to the name Zigbee Temp Sensor and Thermostat Mc-(OLD).

I will publish the new version 3.0 with the original name Zigbee Temp Sensor and Thermostat Mc.

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