I got an idea, but that’s is temporary solution or it could be good solution, as is not giving choice of temperature sensor change in device settings. @Mariano_Colmenarejo said place fingerprints in virtual thermostat, which let me thinking why not opposite.
We were trying to bring external devices’ data to virtual thermostat, but I’ll ask, if opposite is actually the solution:
Temperature Sensor with Thermostat capabilities
Could we modify temperature sensor driver to have thermostat capabilities?
It would be still temperature/humidity sensor with a little bit of extra
I was going to use Aqara’s Temperature sensor, as it has temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure capabilities.
Currently I am using DTH, I think, created by orangebucket (Graham), Anidea for Aqara Temperature sensor
as current Edge driver doees not have atmospheric pressure, but it does have all other capabilities
SmartThings Edge drivers for XIaomi and Aqara devices - GitHub - veonua/SmartThingsEdge-Xiaomi: SmartThings Edge drivers for XIaomi and Aqara devices
I can provide fingerprints
This way plain “Temperature driver” can be swapped for “Temperature driver with thermostat capabilities”. Only same fingerprints need to be added to both drivers.
As I missed some responses I can see pluses and minuses of bith solutions.
- Temperature Sensor Driver with Thermostat capabilities, needs to be upgraded with additional fingerprints for each protocol, zigbee, z-wave etc…
- Virtual Thermostat, would be more flexible as will allow any temperature sensor to be used as Current temperature value.
