The Itho CVE Eco has 3 values to use now!

Post by BarryT » Tuesday 04 December 2018 23:26

I have some news for all of the Itho CVE ECO RFT users:

If you have a (wireless) switch to power on or off the box, you have now 3 values to work with:

Power OFF = FAN OFF
Power ON = LOW FAN
Power OFF for 2 seconds and then Power ON again, will let the FAN goes to HIGH.
This is tested with 2 boxes, and works perfect.

I use a script that will trigger the box to LOW (value 1) when 10% humidty is going up in 10 seconds, and the box will go to HIGH (send OFF for 2 sec, then ON again) (value 2) if the humidity is going up to 20%+ in 30 seconds.

After that the box will go OFF if limited time is exceeded (30 minutes) or humidity is back to 5% of its starting point..

Try it out!

Hi,

I'm not an owner of the CVE box but interested in you're script.

Willing to share?

I have a zehner RFZ, which hopefuly is simulair to the ITHO RFT, hence I would certainly be intrested in how you connected it to domoticz.

See here:

Code: Select all

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- This script keeps track of the humidity in a bathroom and will active the
-- fan(s) when there was a rise in humidity within the first 5 minutes.
--
-- It is fully configurable by using the constantes below. It should not be
-- needed to change anything to the code itselfs.
--
-- It can be used for multiple bathrooms on one Domoticz server because
-- it uses 'variable' user variables blocks per bathroom. And it can be used
-- on small and large bathrooms. See SMALL_ROOM constante here below.
-- 
-- To set it up add the following user variables to your Domoticz:
-- * humCounter[SENSOR_NAME] (e.g.: humCounterBathroom)
-- * humidityTmin5[SENSOR_NAME]
-- * humidityTmin10[SENSOR_NAME]
-- * targetFanOffHumidity[SENSOR_NAME]
-- * fanMaxTimer[SENSOR_NAME]
-- * fanFollowsProgram[SENSOR_NAME]
-- 
-- Create one Lua - Time script per bathroom (e.g. 'house_fans', 'shower_fan')
-- Testing is done by setting the testHumidity[SENSOR_NAME] to a fake humidity value

I dont use the RFT buttons, none of them.
I just made a (433) on/off switch in the box, what can power on or power off the box.
So, if you switch the box to ON, then OFF for 2 seconds and turning ON again it is going to high.
Just use this script, and it works full automatic :)
