Two related help requests:
- My lake house has ceiling radiant heat using line voltage thermostats in each room. I was not able to find a line voltage WiFi thermostat to control temperature remotely, so I integrated RIB relays using a ZOOZ power strip to energize the relays - using SmartThings temperature monitors along with the virtual thermostat smart app to control the temperature in each room. It works quite nicely, with the exception that my family or guests can’t adjust the temperature easily (even thought I am using Action Tiles with buttons to select a temperature). Because of that, I purchased multiple new Wyze thermostats and connected EcoLink sensors (using the terminals) to send the call for heat, rather than the virtual thermostat smart app.
When setting up the virtual smart app originally, I added multiple safety limits to call for heat, or turn off heat, in case the temperature set point “trigger”from the sensor was missed - especially if a power outage occurred in the winter time . Using the Wyze smart thermostat, I loose that safety, unless I keep the virtual thermostat running.
Is there a way to check the status of a sensor at some frequent interval (4x per hour perhaps) to trigger an action if the original trigger was missed from the EcoLink sensor (as would happen during a power failure for example)?
- I tested using the EcoLink door / window sensor, and tilt sensor to receive the signal from the Wyze Thermostat with a ZOOZ dry contact relay in between, which works very well.
However I checked to se what happens to the sensor status in the event of losing connection with the SmartThings hub. While monitoring the sensor in the SmartThings app, I closed the sensor (read correctly as closed), unplugged the SmartThings hub, opened the sensor, and then plugged the hub back in. After the hub was back online, the sensor still read as closed in the app, rather than open as it really was. I let it set for hours and had no change. It wasn’t until I closed and open the sensor again did the status become correct. Similar to the above request for help, is there a way to recheck the sensor status and make the correction?
I’ve search online for a solution, however I could not find any information - perhaps my search terminology is not correct.
