I installed some Aeotec Radiator Thermostats (Aeotec eTRV by Scruffy-Sjb driver) so I can control the temperature in each room and I have some issues I was hoping someone with more experience (it's my first time using z-wave) can help me out. I will number the issues so they are easier to reference.
- One of the eTRVs (the first one installed out of a total of 3) has S2 Authenticated active while the other have none. One possible issue might be that the installation process was not clean for the last two: HE attempted to show a dialog when it detected them during inclusion but it was an empty HTML element. Eventually I refreshed the page and the eTRVs was there. The same thing happened to the last one. Since I have a small apartment they all connect directly to the bridge and I don't seem to have any connection issues.
Is there any way to switch on S2 without running the inclusion process again? Maybe Authenticated if possible?
I was thinking of upgrading the firmware and found a driver that can do that but I can't find any firmware on the official website (they are discontinued). Is there a safe third-party firmware repository? Alternatively I guess I'll just contact Aeotec.
They don't seem to update. I waited over night and there was no update to the reported temperatures in HE. Is this normal? I was expecting HE to receive updates so I can let the boiler know when to turn heating off (if no thermostat needs to heat a room the boiler should not be running - I replaced the "dumb" house thermostat with a Shelly1 to turn heating on and off from HE). To fix this I created an rule in RM that sends a refresh command every 5 minutes (might increase it to 30 minutes).
Is this normal and is refreshing from HE the right approach?
- I've created a rule in RE to turn the boiler on when a room needs to be heated:
Heat setpoint of Living Room Radiator(25.0) reports > Living Room Radiator(26.71)
Heat setpoint of Bedroom Radiator(25.0) reports > Bedroom Radiator(26.16)
Actions to run:
On: Boiler Shelly1 switch
This rule doesn't seem to run but works if I click the "Run Actions" button.
What am I doing wrong?
Sorry if these are stupid questions or if I'm doing stupid mistakes but I can't think of any other solutions.
