Yea, Smart Things Changed the slider design. I hate the new version but nothing you can do. I don’t have time to fix the readme every time they make changs
Just saying doesn’t work for you doesn’t really help me understand what you need and as I said you need to do some homework to understand how this all works, your reply is so soon after mine I suspect you didn’t try very hard to solve any issue you have.
There are lots of ways to do this. You need to look at the smart apps, routines, modes. Basically you need to learn how to use SmartThings. My Smart App will handle the turn on based on temp and you can use modes to deal with the time. Another option would be to use something like CORE.
I’ve recently modified ScheduleTstatZones & ecobeeSetZoneWithSchedule to be able to control more effectively any portable coolers/heaters, split/window units based on My HvacUnit or the Remotec ZXT120 AC DTHs. For example, the smartapps can determine the best fan speed based on the max temp differential allowed for the zone(s).
For more details on My Flair HvacUnit, refer to:
In the ScheduleTstatZones smartapp, you can configure your rooms/zones/schedules. You then associate your zone/room thermostats to your zones and schedule your zones during the day.
In your home, you don’t always want to heat/cool all your rooms. In the evenings or at night for instance, you may want to direct more heat to your bedrooms.
The smartapp lets you choose a master thermostat which controls other slave (zone/room) thermostats in terms of mode and setpoints. The thermostats need to follow the ST standard capabilities.
You can also define enter some delta temp adjustments to make some specific zoned rooms cooler or hotter. You can also use your room’s motion sensor to take into account if the room is occupied or not. The occupied threshold can be defined on a room by room basis for more flexibility.
There are many other features, refer to the ST community wiki for more details:
Hi Ron thanks for reply as you see I found the solution but I have something new to ask
As you see with new update of SmartThings app have scenes I found the ZXT-120 but have only option for on and off and goes only at cool when you enable it even if your last time was heat can you add more option than on off… Also I use your smart app based on temp but again you can’t set to open at heat or open at cool
The open method is hard coded to call “cool” you can change that hard code to heat if you want. There is no way to know what your last setting was on the AC unit because it doesn’t report both ways. The ZXT-120 talks to the AC unit but the unit doesn’t report back. So if you turn on AC with the DH and then turn on heat with your remote it wouldn’t know your last setting. I could have coded it to remember the last selected mode but I had no need for that so I didn’t write it that way.
You can just change on to call switchModeHeat() instead of switchModeCool(). If you want both then you need a smart app that works with thermostat not just switch.
I am not sure why you say my Smart App doesn’t let you select heat or cool. It definitely does.
Has anyone else struggled to get the device to learn? I was able to add it and pressing the yellow button causes the red LED to flash once. Yet when I try to get it to learn I only get the six flashes. The remote works (it’s a window unit and I plan on dealing with the various challenges there but i can’t start until I get it to learn anything)
I want this:
Example: if open A/C with ST from my phone from example at heat and 22C and then closed
If set routine to open A/C when I am back to home
Then open A/C at last settings in our example heat 22C
So the last settings of device handler is that possible?
I’m a new user of Smarthing.
I got no ST programming skills.
I have installed several A/C units in my apartment.
Some are from LG and some from Samsung.
I got the code list from Remotec.
I’m buying their ZXT-120 AC IR controller.
Could any of you share a simplified step-by-step set of instructions to configure the devices from A to Z?
Thank you very much in advance.
I want to ask if somehow can connect 2x zxt-120 as 1 because i have 2 air condition in my living room…???
A.gennari you must
copy the code of git hub (tap raw)
then go to api smarthings web page log in
go to location select home then
click to device handler then
add new device handler
paste the code
and publish for me
go to the app
tap + things
when searching push the button on top of zxt-120
you will found it then open the zxt UI
go to settings
put your code and save
the go at the buttom and push config and refresh
now everythings must work or just use one of the other codes for your aircondition
No but the zxt-120 sends the signal in a 360 radius so perhaps one will work for both. Also the zxt120 has a jack for an IR emitter so you could wire an extra emitter if the units are not close to each other.
The ZXT-120 doesn’t work in continuous mode when using batteries. It uses flirs mode which will sleep when not actively sending signals. That makes it not work with SmartThings. This is why I recommend in my instructions that you have to use a power adapter and you have to place the device in continuous “always listening” mode and not flirs mode before you pair it with SmartThings. (see page 5-6 in manual)
What you are doing when you replace the batteries is waking up the device and it is working for a brief period while it is awake (same would happen if you pressed the center button). Then it goes to sleep and stops working.
The battery reading is not causing this issue. The issue is cause by the device going into sleep mode.
I don’t know why your battery reading is 255%, mine is 100% but I don’t insert batteries since I plug mine in.
