Vimar KNX integration (climate, cover)

Hi everyone,
I have a Vimar By-Me wired system which handles my roller shutters and underfloor heating.
I’m integrating this system with HomeAssistant via a KNX IP Interface.

I found all the KNX addresses of my devices with Vimar descriptions and I achieved to convert them in KNX format and match them with KNX configuration.

For instance, I achieved to integrate roller shutters with the KNX cover device type like the following (might help someone).

Vimar address description KNX cover configuration variable
StopStepUpDown stop_address
UpDown move_long_address
Lock
ShutterPosition position_address
ShutterPositionInfo position_state_address
LockInfo

And roller shutters are working properly in Home Assistant now! :heart_eyes:

I’m having troubles instead to fully integrate the underfloor heating.
These are all the addresses exposed by Vimar and on the right column you can see my current configuration with KNX climate.
I’m not sure if I configured it properly. I’m missing so many things here.

Vimar address description KNX climate configuration variable
DPTx_ClimaForcedOff
DPTx_SysClockDateTime
DPTx_HumidityValue
DPTx_FanSpeed
DPTx_FanSpeedInfo
DPTx_ChangeOverMode
DPTx_ChangeOverModelnfo
DPTx_HvacMode operation_mode_address
DPTx_HvacModeInfo operation_mode_state_address
DPTx_TemperatureSetpoint1 target_temperature_address
DPTx_TemperatureSetpointInfo1 target_temperature_state_address
DPTx_FanManualEnable
DPTx_FanManualEnableInfo
DPTx_AmbientTemperature temperature_address
DPTx_OutStatus
DPTx_ManualModeTiming
DPTx_ManualModeTimingInfo
DPTx_SubFloorAlarm
DPTx_ManualHeatingSetpoint
DPTx_ManualHeatingSetpointInfo
DPTx_ReductionHeatingSetpoint
DPTx_ReductionHeatingSetpointInfo
DPTx_AbsenceHeatingSetpoint
DPTx_AbsenceHeatingSetpointInfo
DPTx_ProtectionHeatingSetpoint
DPTx_ProtectionHeatingSetpointInfo
DPTx_OnOff active_state_address

But I’m not sure at all. Can you help me matches this configuration with the KNX climate based on your experience?
Thank you very much!

Scusa posso capire come hai fatto a collegare by me a home assistant??

I used a KNX IP Interface and the KNX integration.

In the end, I achieved the integration matching the KNX addresses like the following:

DPTx_SysClockDateTime
DPTx_HumidityValue
DPTx_FanSpeed
DPTx_FanSpeedInfo

DPTx_HvacModeInfo controller_mode_state_address
DPTx_TemperatureSetpoint1 target_temperature_address
DPTx_TemperatureSetpointInfo1 target_temperature_state_address
DPTx_FanManualEnable
DPTx_FanManualEnableInfo
DPTx_AmbientTemperature temperature_address

Hi, which vimar gateway are you using? GW 01411?
Thanks

Hi @cristoforocervino,

great to see your success, is it the by-me plus gateway you are using? I tried very hard so far, but struggle with the initial connection as I don´t know the address of the gateway - so not the IP, but the 1/1/80 or something like this… one.

can you give me a hint?

Best, Christian

Hi @christian.zingg how can you proceed with the association of HAs if you will know the gateway’s IP address?
I know it on my network but I do not know how to proceed to setup the association between my gateway and HomeHassistant.
I would higly appreciate if you would share your insights.
Thanks & Best

Hi @sicilianom,
I found out, that you Need an IP Gateway, as the Vimar Gateway is just Talking to the cloud. No big deal and easy to install…

Best, Christian
