ZWave Thermostat - Ceiling Fan Program Control


Recommended Posts

OK... I have a simple program to turn on my ceiling fan when the thermostat calls for heat.  I use the

option of Heat/Cool State for switching.  It works fine, however I have to initiate a query for the program to work after I first enable the program.

I have the Tstat set to be always awake...  The furnace functions fine but the H/C State willnot update unless a query is requested.  Do I have to

include a line to query on a schedule?  The only data I see returned below on a regular basis is the CLIMHUM?

That should work.  I duplicated your program and had it turn on a switchlinc light when the system calls for heat and turn off when it is not.  Worked every time.   You may want to try setting a variable to see if it is working the way you want.  

If mode = heating then set sVar = 1 else sVar = 0

Then another program that turns the fan on based on the setting of that variable.  If sVar = 1 then set micro switch on.

I tried it both ways and they both work.

You'll want to query your thermostat in order to get status of it doesn't automatically update.

Due to the amount of communication needed in order to make your system usable the way you want, personally I would get one that updates automatically as the queries can affect communication

I'm a little unfamiliar on setting variables.  I would need an example as in a picture...  

I did not know of options for Zwave equipment that provides automatic updating...  Maybe mine does and I just don't know.  I will look at the

settings...   It is a Honeywell T6320ZW2003

Variables isn't going to help you. Your thermostat doesn't update it's status immediately which is the problem. Most likely they use polling which happens every so often.

Would like to schedule an ISY query every 30 minutes to pull updates from this zwave thermostat I bought which does not send out updates unless I query it.  Could someone post an example?  

Does anyone have a recommendation on a zwave tstat that does report?  I did not expect this lack of functionality from a Honeywell zwave product.
