  1. Thanks - I just pinged my dealer. I'll give him first crack at it!
  2. "You need 20200402" uhm..... My IFTTT is semi-broken.... I'm guessing the fact that I am using: Version: 20161203 Is a problem.... Mine says it is 'up to date'.
  3. And to think I was worried about hi jacking the thread.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. So the way I read all this, the chowmain driver either doesn’t or may not work? It also references PWS? http://www.chowmainsoft.com/weather-forecast Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ok, in case this helps someone else someday.... I have an Mitsubishi MLZ-KP12NA. Things I discovered: 1) Intensisbox and Chowmain driver work great. 2) When the room temperature is actually 68 degrees: The ceiling unit remote displays 68 degree room temp when you have it on cool. Great! Everything functions fine. When you put it on heat, the unit inexplicably changes the room temp to 62 degrees and heats the hell out of the room until it gets the temp to 76 degrees (which it displays as a totally reasonable 68 degrees). This is called the "heat temperature offset". This is apparently on purpose. On the older units, you can turn this 'feature' off. I have yet to figure out how to turn this off on the MLZ. This is, clearly, insanely stupid. You can literally switch back and forth. Cool? 68°. Heat? 63°. WTF? This really gets crazy when you put it on auto. how can it run the AC and Heat at the same time? 3) The fan continues to run after you reach the setpoint. This can lead to exceeding the set point on mild days, when the fan continues to run and may 'overcondition' the room. This is a problem if you cant turn the unit off. Having the C4 integration is nice, because I can shut the unit down when set temp is exceeded.
  6. I'm so confused. I would like to add weather, but all I hear is Weather Underground is going away, Dark sky is going away, and personal weather station doesn't integrate right. Am I missing something? Does C4 not have a weather integration? I'd jump on a PWS if that will guarantee success - I like the idea of getting MY weather integrated - priorities being current/future temp, and historical rainfall. (hopefully I'm not hijacking the thread, seems to have run it's course).
  7. Thanks for the replies. I am leaning toward trying to hook up an external thermistor (just to save money from a thermostat I won't use). The options are rather confusing, I am not yet convinced that is an option. Otherwise, I must say, the intensis unit was slick (super easy to set up, and has been very stable), and the driver has worked well. The only hiccup I have had was we lost power, and I had to reboot C4 to reconnect to the intensis. Not a showstopper, as that could be done remotely.
  8. Hello - I am battling with a mini-split that tends to way overshoot in the room. I used the Intensis interface module, and Chowmain's driver to get control. I also have a C4 thermostat in the room (from the zoned main hvac). The problem is the Mistubishi returns a crazy room temperature that has more to do with the outside temp than inside (poorly insulated ceiling cassette?). I seem to have three options: 1) use C4 to turn on and off the split unit based on the c4 thermostat. This will likely cause poor ramping/overshoot/energy efficiency. But otherwise should work. 2) find some external thermistor connection to the split unit, so the unit reads the correct room temp. (I could run a whole new thermostat, but I think that would screw up the intensisbox.) 3) Figure out how to get the chowmain/intensisbox to use a C4 temperature input from the c4 thermostat. I know it is a long-shot - but anyone else run into this problem? Thanks
  9. So, is there a consensus? I have a new Mitsubishi mini split. Should I go intensis (my model isn’t listed for compatibility) or sensibo?
  10. I must be confused. The echobee is a washer retrofit option? What did you buy for $30?
  11. Unfortunately I was brain dead during the panic buy of the new washer. Wish there was a retrofit solution. Out of balance would definitely be a good option Ill be be prepared for the dryer.
  12. Hello all - For years I have had my dryer buzzer set up to hit our phones (first with ardoino, now with C4). This was super easy with the old dryer, as the buzzer was a dedicated 120v wire I could tap into. I was able to integrate the alert, but also log it on google sheets. But.... We recently got a new washer, and our dryer is on the way out. Has anyone figured a way to tap off these new washers and dryers to get an alert when the load is done? I saw a driver from Chowmain that looked like it works through IFTTT for some GE washers. Anyone use that? And just to pile everything into one thread - anyone use C4 to track their HVAC and/or water heater? I've always been meaning to get around to setting it up with an ardoino and just never had the time. I'd like to log and alert on some basics, like hot water temp, hvac temp, hvac run times etc. I'm surprised C4 has never done this. [C4 'metrics suite' tracks HVAC run times, data spikes, sends alert to HVAC company on contract to come take a look... win win]
  13. Ok. Thanks for the info. Sounds like I should stick with the 'old' (RS-232) version. [with my luck … I fully expect c4 to drop support for RS-232 tomorrow.]
  14. Thanks for the replys - not sure what I was doing wrong, but my dealer fixed the volume issue. As for linking two rooms, I was just making things two complicated. On the off chance it helps someone else, all you do is put "Select the (RoomX Sonos) as the audio source in (RoomY)". I kept putting a 'Play' statement after that, which made it start its 'own' audio stream. Once I deleted that, worked fine.
  15. I see that response-box has the Ethernet DMX engine on their web-page, but I don't see any comments about folks buying or using it. I don't want to be the first one to buy the ethernet version, but then again, I don't really want to be the last one to buy the old version. Any info? Can anyone confirm the Domaudeo driver will work with the new box? I have all the other parts - just need to get the engine.
