  • Tstat plugin not showing FAN on or off, only IDLE - Resolved!


  • #2
    I should clarify my statement...When I poll the system I never see anything other than the above status....I would have thought that if the fan was on I would see a different fan mode or something....

    Thanks!

      I am having exactly the same problem with two HAI 80BZ tstats as well. And, I'm running the latest z-wave tstat plug-in 1.3.0.6. Any ideas?

      Thanks,
      Chris

        Yes, I'm also running the latest plugin...When I go to the plugin, I see this error message listed on one of my tstats:

        Error sending fan operating mode command (E), return was ERROR ID: 15

        Thanks!

          Hi Rodney,

          I was getting errors a while ago, but it turns out I had some bad Z-Wave switches. Since removing them my errors have gone away.

          Regardless though, even without errors, I never get any different operating mode other than Idle. I have events that trigger on this status change, but never see them get triggered as well.

          Have you opened a trouble ticket on this already?

            I haven't opened a ticket.

            I have some reoccurring events to manipulate the ac/heating settings. These change the heat or AC temps depending on what time of day it is and where people are in the house.. I use Text Messaging to check who's home and what part of the house to heat/AC...Like a normal electronic program in these digital thermostats but with a little brain...

            I do have one event that does run if the AC is on and is turned down below 77. When the events shoots off it changes the temp back to 82(make them suffer!) and sends me email telling me someone has lowered the AC unit too much! This has stopped folks from messing with the units directly...

            My only gripe is that I'd like to know which fan is on since my hearing is horrible. Currently I have to check for a breeze coming from the kitchen vent to know that this is the unit which is on...it would be nice to see the correct status online..

            Good luck...

              I submitted a Help Desk item for this one: 18665. I'll let you know what I find out.

                  Oddly, I was checking my Thermostats to day and noticed that it said that the fan was operating!!! Maybe this works after all!

                  Maybe someone can tell us what triggers the change so that we can confirm this...No reason to have folks working on tracking a problem if in fact there isn't one....

                  I'm currently runing the latest Zwave Thermostat Plugin: 1.3.0.8

                  Regards,
                  Rodney

                    I was having an issue too but the version 1.3.0.8 seemed to fix my issue so far...

                    actually I just checked..
                    I still get an error too...

                    but once I go into setup and run a rescan.. the error goes away and wont come back until I restart hs.... then do a rescan and fixed again...

                        Sorry guys,
                        I just tested this and looks like I miss read the the status page. I've also just tested my status with the fan on after several minutes and no luck...It was late when I posted my update. Sorry for generating all this excitement, but it looks like we are all still having the same problem.

                            I've done the optimize 4 times and no luck so far. Rick is still working with me on this, and I'll be testing some things this weekend to see if it's all good.

                            I'll post results back here...

                              Just to follow up on this. I contacted the vendor and they informed me that the 80BZ does not support sending the fan operating status nor the mode operating status. They suggested upgrading to a newer model that does support it...
