  • Probable Demon Possession of CT101

    I've had 5 CT101 thermostats working fine for several years. I recently added a 2nd ZNet network and moved 1 tstat to the new network; mayhem and chaos followed. I run a morning and evening HVAC event that sets all the tstat operating parameters (in case they were manually adjusted during the preceding 12 hrs); the evening event sets the cooling setpoint to 68 and the morning event sets the cooling setpoint to 72. The events look like this:

    IF This event is MANUALLY triggered (This event is triggered by a "HVAC Schedule" event)
    Then Set Devices
    Thermostats Apartment Operating Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Living Operating Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Dining Operating Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Guest Hall Operating Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Master Mode to Auto
    Then Set Devices
    Thermostats Apartment Fan Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Living Fan Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Dining Fan Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Guest Hall Fan Mode to Auto
    Thermostats Master Fan Mode to Auto
    Then Set Devices
    Thermostats Apartment Cooling Setpoint to 72 F
    Thermostats Living Cooling Setpoint to 72 F
    Thermostats Dining Cooling Setpoint to 72 F
    Thermostats Guest Hall Cooling Setpoint to 72 F
    Thermostats Master Cooling Setpoint to 72 F
    Then Set Devices
    Thermostats Apartment Heating Setpoint to 60 F
    Thermostats Living Heating Setpoint to 60 F
    Thermostats Dining Heating Setpoint to 60 F
    Thermostats Guest Hall Heating Setpoint to 60 F
    Thermostats Master Heating Setpoint to 60 F

    While the other 4 tstats behave correctly when the event runs, the Master tstat (newly moved to the new network) reports that it set the Cooling setpoint to 72, but does not do so?!? The mobile app also reports that the Master tstat is set to 72. This morning's log is typical and looks like this (note that the event set the Cooling Setpoint to 72 at 6:20A, but it was still 68 at 7:37A when I manually reset it to 72, at 11:28A it was again 68?!?):

    NOTE: AT 11:28 AM...THOUGH THE LOG RECORDS NOTHING, THE MASTER TSTAT IS AGAIN SET AT 68 (F)

    I have tried removing and re-adding the Master tstat, but it made no difference. I don't know how to test for demons, but if anyone does or has other ideas about this problem, I'd love to hear them.

      Try the zwave debug logging. Turn it on just before trying the change and tuen it off right after as it will generate a lot of info. Hopefully the debug log will give you a hint as to what is going on or if not, you could provide to HS support for help from them.
