I just released a new version this past week of my popular zoned heating/cooling smartapps (ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule & ScheduleTstatZones for any other ST connected thermostats) with additional features for better air circulation.

- The smartapp is now able to turn on/off switches linked to big fan(s) or damper(s) when the temp differential in the zone(s) has reached a threshold set in Schedule(s). The fan temp threshold can be different from one schedule to the next for more flexibility.

As a reminder, the smartapps are also able to automatically control the fan mode & speed of any room/zone thermostats based on the temp differential between the room’s ambient temperature and the avg temperature for the schedule zone(s).

The new version (v7.7.7) is available for download at my store.P.S. All my contributors who have followed the updates procedure should have received the update by now. Otherwise, check your spam or trash folders.

Hi,

I’ve just released new major versions of my zoned heating/cooling solutions (ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule & ScheduleTstatZones v8.0 ) and ScheduleTempControl (v4.0) with the option to create new virtual Zone Devices under ST for easier control of your targeted heating/cooling zones inside your home!!

Here is the new virtual zone UI:

For more details on the zone control possible, refer to the ST community wiki (sections look and feel and configuration):

The new code can be downloaded at my store:

P.S. The new code will be soon distributed to all my active contributors.

Regards.

Hi,

The new versions of my zoned heating/cooling smartapps (ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule v8.0.3, ScheduleTstatZones v8.0.3, ScheduleRoomTempControl v4.0.3) provide the following new features:

  • They can now process the motion events in real time (according to your sensor’s refresh rate) for your virtual zone(s)
  • You can now set a delay in seconds before setting the vents when your HVAC is running (heating,cooling, fan only).

You can download the new versions at my store:

New NEST devices for my zoned heating/cooling solutions!!:


(C L Sanchez 1877) #170

Are there any ductless systems that would work with this app?

I currently have two old systems on Ecobee Thermostats (with 10 sensors) but within the next year or two I plan on changing some things over. I am looking at either a single large system with 4 zones, or ductless units in the main rooms with a single smaller system with the Keen vents in the smaller rooms. A single app that could integrate everything would be terrific…however I have not found any ductless systems that would work with ST. Have you crossed anything?

Hi,

Just to let my contributors know, I have new versions of my zoned Heating/Cooling smartapps available at my store : ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.2.1) and ScheduleTstatZones (v8.2) which correct some delta temp issues when applied to the zone’s setpoints.

You can download the new versions at my store using the original selffy link.

The new code is available at my store.

How does this compare to NST Manager? I’m currently using that smart app with Nest thermostat and afew multisensors dotted around my home, running into issues with temperature readings using that app so pondered how this compares.

Hi,

The smartapp has many features and works well with MyNextManager (Nest devices under ST).

See the new DTHs here:

Please refer to the ST community wiki for more details about the ScheduleTstatZones smartapp:

Hi,

Just to let my contributors know, I have new versions (v8.2.5) of my zoned Heating/Cooling smartapps available at my store :

  • ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule and ScheduleTstatZones which now send the required on() command for some portable heaters/coolers/splits (as room thermostats) when they are part of the scheduled zones.

You can download the new versions at my store using the original sellfy link.

The new code is available at my store.

Hi,

Just to let my contributors know and all Sensibo users, I have new versions of my zoned Heating/Cooling smartapps available at my store :

  • I made a small change to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.2.7) and ScheduleTstatZones (v8.2.7) to be able to support the Sensibo thermostat capabilities (custom DTH) in order to control window/mini splits.

  • With the new release, you can automatically turn on/off the Sensibo according to your schedules and even control the fan speed based on the concepts of rooms/zones/schedules just like the Remotec ZXT-120 and the Flair HVAC Units.

You can download the new versions at my store using the original sellfy link.

The new code is available at my store.

Hi,

Just to let my contributors know and all users who would like to do targeted heating/cooling in their home that I have new versions of my zoned Heating/Cooling smartapps available at my store :

  • I made a small change to ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule (v8.2.8) and ScheduleTstatZones (v8.2.8) to use the app.updateSetting() method in order to keep the virtual zone devices in sync with the values (temp delta, active zone or not) in the zoning smartapps.

Hi,

Just to let my contributors and all ST users know and all users who would like to do targeted heating/cooling in their home that I have new versions of my zoned Heating/Cooling smartapps available at my store :

  • I made a small change to ScheduleTstatZones (v8.3), and to correct the zone’s active flag when set using the virtual zone devices.

  • Also, in ScheduleTstatZones (v8.3), you can now indicate in each schedule if you want to synch the rooms’ slave thermostats (ex. eTRVs, portable heaters/coolers, mini/window splits) with the master’s thermostat’s setpoints or use the corresponding scheduled setpoints.
