How to switch from normal to reduced heating with OTGW

Postby rpav » Tue Nov 17, 2015 5:25 am

Hi folks,
first of all, thank you for patience to answ. newbies questions.
As most of us, I would like to use OTGW to very elementary control of my boiler.
The task is switch to the "reduced heating mode" remotely.
Does anybody know how to easy do that?
I try commands: CS=10, CH=0, but the boiler has still central heating 2 enable. Any way how to manipulate with CH2?

Thank you,
--

OK, so I will try to answer myself :)

I believe that switch boiler from "normal" heating mode to "reduced" heating mode (in the meaning of QAA73 button) means change Status from 00010011 to 00000010 (bits for CH and CH2) and decrease CS and CS2 to appropriate level.
With current version of OTGW we can manipulate with CH and CS, but there is not way how to manipulate with CH2 and CS2.
If I'm right, this will be my user wish for the next release of otgw. :)
Thank you!!

Your need to check if your boiler can accept such comand from OTGW.
Please check this link for compatibility http://otgw.tclcode.com/matrix.cgi or have a look here viewtopic.php?f=75&t=10541

Which command you mean? Is there any command to switch from normal to reduced mode?
Sorry, but I don"t think so. I believe it can be achieve by CS=10, CH=0, CS2=10, CH2=0, but CS2=10 & CH2=0 are not exists on OTGW...
Or am I wrong?

If my boiler is in "reduced" mode, I can send messages MM=100 and CS=22 and boiler will switch to "normal" mode...
