Heatit! zwave Thermostat & Automations

Hi Everyone,

Looking for some help with the Heatit Thermostat and running an automation.

The thermostat:

climate.bathroom_fbh_heating	Off	current_temperature: 20.5
min_temp: 7
max_temp: 35
temperature: 24
operation_mode: Off
operation_list: Off,Heat (Default),Cool,Energy Heat
node_id: 14
value_index: 1
value_instance: 1
value_id: 72057594278101010
old_entity_id: climate.bathroom_fbh_heating_14_1
new_entity_id: climate.bathroom_fbh_heating
unit_of_measurement: °C
friendly_name: Bathroom FBH Heating

I can turn this on and off and set temps etc only manually.

The Automation:

- alias: Morning FBH in Bad OG - ON
    - platform: time
      at: "20:25:00"
    condition: time
      - mon
      - tue
      - wed
      - thu
      - fri
    - service: climate.set_operation_mode
      entity_id: climate.bathroom_fbh_heating
        operation_mode: Heat
    - service: climate.set_temperature
      entity_id: climate.bathroom_fbh_heating
        temperature: 24

Spacing looks off in the preview window but it’s actually ok i think - has the two spaces for formatting etc

The automation runs and triggers itself and shows it the log book as being triggered but the thermostat never turns on. I have checked the info page for errors but there are none.

Can anyone see my mistake(s)???

One thing possibly related - the automation does not show in the Automations GUI menu???

Any body have a Heatit thermostat that has this problem?

Appreciate any and all help :slight_smile:

Just been looking at something similar. Wasn’t able to trigger operation_mode “Heat” on my Heatit thermostat. To me it seemed to work if I changed from using “Heat” to “heat”. :slight_smile:

I’m embarrassed to say that I still have not got this working - but i will try “heat” instead of “Heat”.

Thanks for posting, I will post back with the result for others in the same boat.


Look at the autoamtions.yaml in my post. It works fine with heatit. :wink:


yep “heat” instead of “Heat” worked! Thanks very much.

It is a bit confusing, as it says “Heat” here: https://www.home-assistant.io/components/climate.zwave/

Thanks for the help :+1:
