So I’ve finally got a thermostat I can control via zwave, and have been trying to get it working in HA, I’ve made some progress, but still running into issues, not sure what I’m doing wrong here:
Thermostat: GoControl GC-TBZ48
I’ve read on this post, about getting it added: GoControl GC-TBZ48 Z-Wave Thermostat - Can't control setpoints?
I managed to use the built-in zwave support in HA and got the thermostat added successfully (I think).
Once connected, I had 4 new climate devices:
I read on the components page that:
Thermostats with support for fan modes or different operating modes, will be handled like a HVAC device and will also be detected as one. If the thermostat support different operating modes, you will get one thermostat entity for each mode. These can be hidden with settings using the customize setting in the configuration.yaml file.
So that explains the 4 devices.
What I can’t make sense of is… Which of these 4 devices should I be using?
Also on the components page, I followed the “test if it works” section. I’ve tried using the climate.set_temperature & climate.set_operation_mode for each of the 4 devices, above. Filling out the entity_id for each, as well as the mode and/or temperature. None of them actually change the temperature, or mode of the thermostat!
What am I doing wrong here?
