Need help on search terms please., for the forum.
So, I have a Duel Programmer for my heating, CH and HW. I have a room thermostat that is hardwired to the programmer to control CH. The HW is simply a “HW” button on the programmer that needs to be pressed to demand HW.
I want to use a Z-Wave battery operated thermostat that and a device to replace my Programmer. I guess that device needs to be 2 part - 1 controlled via the thermostat and 2 being an On/Off type switch , both integrated by HA,
What do I need to search for in terms of the replacement for my programmer, what is the device called or the search term I need to use here and/or in Google.
how do i know if it works with HA?
where is the list of compatible devices for this and other devices i might consider
I use it with HA via https://github.com/OpenZWave/Zwave2Mqtt so that HA only sees MQTT messages.
I am not aware of any HA compatibility list.
but i found the Z-wave config for the “secure 2ch booklet, HW switch,”
mqtt -2-zwave IHO just ads more complexity
Why would you only want HA to see MQTT ?
I can control my house with any MQTT client, without having to resort to HA.
It also makes it relatively easy to use with other controllers. I can switch from HA to OpenHab or something else without having to check for compatability.
understood Graham, however my preference is a single managed system, using hass.io , I’ve PMd you a question on this which was a detailed one and lengthy
