    Multiple GT125

    Does the plug-in allow to add multiple GT125. I have 3 GT125, one in the house and one in each of my garage.

      It's not possible with the current version version of the plugin, but I will make it support multiple instances in the next version, so that you can start one instance of the plugin for each GT125.

        In version 3.0.0.10 available here, I added support for multiple instances

          Is there anything existing or coming like this that would work with my Stelpro KI (STZW402WB+) Z-Wave Electric Baseboard Thermostat? I'm trying to control the baseboard heat using a multi-sensor rather than the built in thermostat.
          Thanks

            since it is a ZWave device, it should work natively with the ZWave plugin

              I've used these Stelpro and felt the control precision (PID) was fantastic. I'm curious to know why you don't want to rely on the built-in sensor.

                Michel, I have a somewhat odd situation. There is actually one heat register that runs between two rooms. (yah - bad design) When the door that separates the rooms is open it does not seem to be any problem. When is shut it means that the other room (bedroom) often ends up too hot or too cold. A sensor in the room where the Stelpro is not will hopefully help to minimize this problem.

                So far I put a door sensor on the door between the rooms which when closed enables an event that reads the temperature from the multi-sensor in the bedroom. I'm not really experienced at script writing or whatever it might take to make this work better. Right now I just have the event tell stelpro to bump up to 80 degrees to heat and drop to 60 degrees to stop heating. So when the door is shut we're constantly fluctuating between full power or no power which means temps shoot up high then drop low. I'm hoping to figure out a way to reliably take advantage of the subtle adjustments to power to the heat register that Stelpro does so well on it's own.

                  Thanks for the detailed info. Bad design will always give bad results. In my brother's bathroom they installe the baseboard just under the thermostat...

                  The nice thing with HS is that you can do a lot with the events tool without writing a single line of code, as long as you are good at visualizing the If-then-do concepts and results. You can combine multiple events and avoid having them fight each other by creating virtual devices and updating it status with one of your Then statement.

                  Good luck.

                    Michel,
                    I appreciate your insights! If it works well I'll post the events.
                    Thanks
                    Bill

                      Hi Spud,

                      It would be great if the - Load Value - integer Load value in watts of the heater (full load value) could be added to each thermostat, load controller. (In the load controller it seems to display the actual load), in the thermostats would need to take the % and multiply it by the load value field to give the amount of watts. Not sure if dimmers/lights switches support this, but I will assume yes.

                      Once displaying the watts, giving the option to log into the HS Energy API, would enhance even more.

                      Regards

                        Spud,

                        If you ever go that route, just be informed that some of the Sinope thermostat model have (2) load field. The actual load attached to the main output and a user entered field for any Auxiliary output load. Ex.: The floor heating model and 24VAC model.

                        Michel
