Bosch EasyControl (Nefit Easy's Big Brother)

Post by melvinc » Wednesday 21 March 2018 22:38

Hi all,

Today I received a new thermostat kit from Bosch - Nefit Easy's big brother Bosch Easy Control, with smart radiator valves.
Link => https://www.bosch-easycontrol.com/

Unfortunatelly but somewhat understandable the Nefit Easy script does not longer work;

2018-03-21 21:26:19.371 Error: NefitEasy: Error getting http data!

Does anyone have an idea how we can get the correct data from the stream from the Bosch server?

Br,
Melvin

Nice :-)

Hopefully more will join, and Bosch will open up the interface soon as they promised in the product announcement.
Can't wait to get the CT200 (and hopefully all rooms) available in Domoticz.

Hi, did you have any updates? Just received my new CT200 and eager to connect. Please let me know if you could get the data and how.

Thanks, Richard

Nope, I still havent figured out how we can connect the CT200... hopefully someone else has any idea how we can get this up and running.

Mine is just installed...
Did a portscan on it, not 1 port is listening, so direct communication with the CT200 is not possible.
Then I did a packet capture of the network traffic but it's SSL 2.0 encrypted.
I'm a bit afraid we'll have to wait for the IFTT support for basic settings or to use the EMS board from bbqkees.
I already ordered that board and a arduino. I'm pretty sure that will have a lot more possibilities than their IFTT implementation.

Is this yet another (Nest, Hive, Tado, etc.) system that ties you in to an external server in order to work? I want to operate - and have control of - my heating locally. Yes, I know they give you the facility of controlling your heating ‘from anywhere in the world’, but I can achieve that with Domoticz and the Smart Virtual Thermostat plugin. Only advantage seems to me to be the ‘pretty’ touchscreen controllers. I’m currently looking for an alternative to my British Gas Hive system, as I don’t like it being permanently connected to the Internet - I may go the Domoticz SVT route, and build my own touchscreen controller.
