Hey all, first post to the forums. I have a setup in my room that I think others may have tried as well. I have heat controlled through a Z wave thermostat (Stelpro KI STZW402WB+) on the wall, and a window air conditioner to handle cooling. In the fall and spring seasons, the temperature in the north east varies enough that I end up running both. My AC is currently connected to a z wave outlet, and is cycled according to the temperature reading that my Z wave thermostat provides, and the setpoint I enter in to the Virtual Thermostat SmartApp.
My question is: How could I modify the Virtual Thermostat SmartApp to use the setpoint from the Z wave thermostat rather than have to enter in my setpoint manually from the Virtual Thermostat SmartApp config? I tried tweaking the code to use capability.thermostatSetpoint instead of entering a value, but in testing it tells me that I don’t have any devices capable of this. Does my Stelpro just not make this information available to the rest of my network, or is there something I am missing?
Thanks all, I appreciate it.
