    Problems with mcsKNX devices

    Tring to define a virtual thermostat, I do not find KNX (mcsKNX) thermal sensor devices.

    This problem is born after migration from HS3 to HS4 and changing KNX plugin from izKNX (with which I create a VStat device correctly) to mcsKNX.

    Attached Advanced information about device not found in list of sensors.

    Hi,
    Because the device type is not set to a temperature sensor, SDJ-VStat is not automatically recognizing the device as an available sensor. That isn't a problem though as in HS3 and HS4 the 'Device Type String' property is user editable.

    In HS4 click on the Device and then you will find the 'Device Type String' at the very bottom of the Feature page. This is probably blank.
    You can edit this as it is only a text string. If you add the word Temperature and click the 'Save' button you should find that the device will then be available for selection as a sensor in SDJ-VStat.

    Plug-ins don't normally use the 'Device Type String', other than for information, so editing it is unlikely to cause a problem. However, once you have assigned the device to a VStat you can change the 'Device Type String' back to whatever it was before. SDJ-VStat only uses it as a method of filtering sensors for selection. Once selected the 'Device Type String' is no longer required.

    Let me know how you get on.

      OK! Typing "Temperature sensor" in device type string run correctly.
