  • Plugin problems (Load schedule and Celsius/Fahrenheit setting)

    I bought my Omnistat2 RC-1000 thermostat a few months ago, and am using the latest HAI thermostat plugin to control it. Unfortunately I have two problems:

    1) The plugin clearly has some issues using it in Celsius settings. Some temperatures displayed or pushed are incorrect or off the scale. See screenshots for examples.

    2) Loading and saving schedules does not work properly, it does not show the correct values in the schedule file. Sometimes it's just zero's (or 32F). This might not be related to the C/F setting issue, because I have this problem also when using the Fahrenheit settings.

    Is there anyone who knows about this problem, and has corrected it in the plugin?

    The plug-in has not been updated to fully support the additional features of the Omnistat2. I assume that "scheduling" is one feature that doesn't work and you'll also find that the weekly runtimes are not obtained from the T-stats either.

    I don't use the schedule feature, instead allowing HomeSeer to control setpoints based on time, occupancy, etc. I have not seen any errors in temperature reporting or setting (aside from a 1 degree rounding error I posted about earlier). Lastly, you may find that the plug-in looses comms with the T'stats if power is cut to the T'stats and then restored. HomeSeer will still be able to change setpoints, but seems to stop polling the stats for changes made locally.

    Overall, the plug-in does work quite well. It just could use some small amount of polishing fully support these new Omnistat2s.

      Thanks.

      Is there any way I can get the source code for this plugin? I someone with VB and .net experience who might be willing to fix this for a few bucks.

        the source is c++, you will need visual studio 6 for c++ to easily mod the source. I can provide the source if you think this is doable.
