FortrezZ WWA-02AA Freeze alarm?


(David Lounsbury) #1

I’ve just installed a FortrezZ WWA-02AA in my vacation home. I was able to set up a push notification for floods pretty easily, but I can’t figure out how to add a push alarm for the temperature alarm. There doesn’t appear to be a way to set the temperature set point in the device preferences, either.

The freeze warning is a bit more valuable in the vacation home - if you can shut off the water during the freeze, you won’t have the flood…

We don’t currently have built in rules for the temperature portion of that device. One could make a SmartApp to make use of that, however.

Just so I’m clear, would I need to write a new Device Type that exposes the devices high / low temperature limit alarm, or does the current Device Type expose the temperature alarm and methods to set it?

One more point on this: Apparently the parser for that device handler does know about the freeze alarms:

c9c66d12-f4f8-4023-9fe6-688f027ac4ec 3:49:50 PM EDT: debug Parse returned [[name:temperature, value:freezing, descriptionText:1st Floor Moisture is freezing, isStateChange:false, displayed:false, linkText:1st Floor Moisture]]
c9c66d12-f4f8-4023-9fe6-688f027ac4ec 3:49:50 PM EDT: debug Parse returned [[name:temperature, value:freezing, descriptionText:1st Floor Moisture is freezing, isStateChange:true, displayed:true, linkText:1st Floor Moisture]]
c9c66d12-f4f8-4023-9fe6-688f027ac4ec 3:49:50 PM EDT: debug Parse returned [null]
c9c66d12-f4f8-4023-9fe6-688f027ac4ec 3:49:50 PM EDT: debug COMMAND CLASS: BasicSet(value: 255)

These don’t seem to get handled anywhere, though. The temperature pane in the Thing on my phone never showed a temperature alarm, even after the sensor had been in the freeze state for >10 minutes (in a baggie in salted ice water.) Bug in the app for that thing? Is the device handler code for the FortrezZ WWA-02AA available anywhere?

As many other other have posted, please enable the temperature status in the App and allow a rule for a defined temperature level.
Thanks for considering the request, this would be extremely helpful… the whole reason I bought the temp/water sensors.
