I’m writing this topic to discuss about general questions around pairing a netatmo smart thermostat with HA.
The goal of this topic is to collect infos around HA users/netatmo themostat owners by discussing about our experiences while configuring a whole setup.
I want to start with three main interrogations I have around this :
1/ Pairing Mode :
My HA runs on a wm using the wmdk provided here https://www.home-assistant.io/hassio/installation/
As soon as I had my wm and HA running for the first time, my NetAtmo thermostat (already paired with the relay) displayed the HomeKit pairing code.
Since then, it has never stopped displaying this code! Even if I put off the batteries (the datas displayed on screen disappear slowly), put them back, the thermostat displays the control and current temperature as usual for some minutes and then changes its display to the pairing code over and over.
Is this an expected behavior when paired with HA?
2/ Discovery Mode :
The netatmo relay appeared since the very first time my vm started running, as a new discovered integration.
But, when I want to configure it, and enter the pairing code I can see on the thermostat display, HA tells me “Device refused to add pairing as it is already pairing with another controller.”
This issue is probably related to my first question?
3/ config.yaml :
I added “discovery: false” into it.
Is this normal that when I go to to Configuration/Integrations/ I still can see my relay in the “Discovered” section?
(and from there, if I try to configure it, I go through the same issue described in 2/)
Many thanks for your help, fell free to close this topic if it is duplicate and the answers are already given in other existing topics
