Here are some log entries from 0.76.2.

Hey guys, I had my thermostat paired and reset it to try this out. I added the custom component but the discovery service isn’t finding the thermostat. Was I supposed to delete it from the homeassistant device registry?

If so, how is this done on 0.77.1?

Thanks!

@hdemel not sure if I understand you, If it was already paired and you want to re-connect it with Home Assistant (using Homekit Controller) then you have to reset the homekit code from your thermostat and also remove the file specific to your thermostat located in the folder “.homeassistant/.homekit”.
After this then just restart homeassistant and the discovery service should find it again,

Regards.

You understood perfectly man; that was what I was after. Thanks so much.

I saw 0.77.2 has a fix for charts for climate devices. I upgraded and my cards are now reflecting the current set temp and actual temp!

Thanks for the tip @gohassgo, I’ll do the upgrade and test.

After the upgrade to 0.77.2 it’s been working fine for several hours. Thanks!

Back to square 1. Overnight it started having that broken pipe error again :frowning:

Same here…

The Broken pipe error has to do with bad connection issues most of the time. Now since all are having them its probably the thermostat that is creating the issue.
I’m also getting another error which stops the measured temp from incoming some of the time:

I will probably drop this thing soon since I’m gonna switch to a qubino zwave thermostat.

Dear Wim,

Do you still have the script available? The link to the file is not working anymore and the info visible in this post is just a part of the entire script I assume.
Thank you

Ty for pointing that out, changed the original post aswell.

Has anyone found resolution to the thermostat not changing when calling thermostat set Temp service?

Just curious what the overall support is likek for a T5 in HA - stumbled upon this thread, is this the right place? I would just like to get current temps and maybe be able to adjust?

I decided to give this method of integrating the T5 a go. Succesfully paired using the default homekit_controller (with status unkown on the card) because I didn’t read the thread above carefully enough. At that point I was getting the exceptions mentioned in the log. I added the custom script to custom_components and restarted - card remains unchanged but the errors are gone.

This is on rpi3 w/ hassbian 0.77.3. Anything else to try? Someone mentioned debugging flags above - do I just add that section to my config for more output?

Update:
It’s generating errors now:

Does this line mean that it’s not loading the custom component?

File "/srv/homeassistant/lib/python3.5/site-packages/homeassistant/components/homekit_controller/__init__.py", line 205, in update

I had placed it here:
/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/custom_components/homekit_controller.py

My configuration.yaml file has this section:

discovery:
  enable:
    - homekit

Just posting back here for anyone that stumbles onto this thread: my Lyric T5 is working really well after updating to 0.80 on this custom homekit_controller component.

Fairly new to Home Assistant so still learning, but I assume to get the Lyric T5 working you actually need to have Apple’s HomeKit product and that this isn’t some type of emulation?

Thanks

My T6 Pro is working well. I’m now running 0.80.1 and don’t see any errors related to this component in the log. I am now able to set temps via hass and have them update on the thermostat, and vice versa.

Nope. Just set up the custom component.

Exactly what changes were needed in this custom component for the T6 to work? Why can’t these fixes be merged back upstream to home assistant? This custom component seems very different from what is in current dev or master branches of HA.
