As many, I’m trying to get the heating/energy bill lower and I’m looking into radiator valves. For example, my living room is where the thermostat is on the wall (Nest Learning V3) so there it will always be warm and radiators fully open.
However in my bedroom I would like it a bit preheated when I goto bed but it doesn’t need to be heated all day.
The bathroom same deal, I shower in the evening so no reason for full on heat all day.
“Long” story short… what valves are there that work with SmartThings and Edge? Or other suggestions?
Located in the Netherlands (Europe)
SmartThings V3 hub
Mainly normal radiators
Bathroom has floorheating but is controlled with a “normal” thermostatic radiatorknob
Hi from the UK, I have the same thermostat.
Smart TRVs work with Nest and you have to balance them with the Nest setting the TRVs maximum.
I have not used Smart TRVs myself but if I was looking to do so I would be looking at what is listed in the Smartthings App, Add device, Thermostats, View by model name, and I would choose a zigbee model.
Popp (owned by Aeotec) look good and are for sale on Amazon and their own shop.
Netatmo Users on this forum seem to be having problems so I would avoid those.
Tuya / Smartlife Smart TRVs, some may work and others not.
Hopefully someone with a working solution will comment.
With the impending move to matter devices hopefully manufacturers will be releasing many new products in the near future.
Just curious: has anyone looked at the Shelly TRVs? They are getting excellent reviews. This is a battery powered Wi-Fi device. (Shelly typically has excellent engineering and has succeeded in getting much better battery life from their Wi-Fi devices than most manufacturers.)
They should work with smartthings through the normal cloud integration. I’m not sure if they’re included in a community built edge driver integration or not.
Danfoss TRV’s work with Smartthings. Just add them from the “partner devices” section.
They are about £40. Battery life for me is over a year with 2x AA non-rechargeables.
They don’t seem to like rechargeable batteries, probably the lower voltage.
Would be great if those cheap Tuya ones available on AliExpress could be used but I am not going to add and additional hub.
