    Virtual Thermostat / Bryant Evolution integration.

    Hi,

    I'm working on an integration with my Bryant Evolution thermostats. (Happy to share iti f anyone is interested). I'm just using scripts and parsing through the web server on the thermostats to get this to work.

    One question I have - is there any documentation on modifying a virtual thermostat device? Right now I have each parameter of the thermostat as an indpenednet virtual device, it works ok, but is not as clean as the thermostat display in homeseer.

    Thanks

    You're going about it the right way. The feedback I got from Rick when writing my thermostat plugin is that discrete virtual devices for each function are the way to go. HST is getting away from the "all in one" thermostat device. What I've done is to put all the status information in the status field on one of the virtual devices. Its value is set to the current temperature. That way I have discrete devices controlling everything, but still have one virtual device that I can look at and get full status at a glance.

      Got it. Thanks for the confirmation. I like the idea of the main device with a long device string and then backup devices for each value. I mostly use homeseer through hstouch anyway, so that gets formatted in a readable fashion for all the values.

        Jeremy, I have Evolution system also. How are you communicating with the thermostat. Does one need the remote access option?

          Dave,

          Yes, you need the remote access option.

          My integration uses the web interface of the remote access option to get values (with poling) and set values.

          P.S. - thanks for your hint offline. Haven't seen any bugs in my system yet, but haven't used it that much either.

              Jeremy, Will this work with HS3?
              If not would you be willing to edit it to be able to work with HS3?

                There is a good discussion on CocoonTech for Carrier Infinity / Bryant Evolution that does the integration without the spendy remote access option. Much more DIY approach.

                    I took a quick look at the code and won't work with HS3 as is. It will need a bit of updating.

                    Cheers

                        Al, Do you know of anyone who might be willing to take this ON?
