I posted here before buying this … How smart and install location
Anyway, got it now. Wired through into the lounge from where the old one was, no problems. The thing powers up, got it onto the WIFI, easy enough. Can see it through the app now too.
However, a few things. Every time it boots, it sits there waiting for some WIFI timeout thing, even though it’s already locked on and working. Is that right?
Also, if I don’t power it down nicely, it once got stuck on booting, saying “Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked.”
Answers here and here …
Are either USB keyboard, or use SD Card slot on a Linux laptop and run fsck on it. Otherwise, it just sits there waiting for me to press and ENT key that doesn’t exist.
Anyway, I can now press the Boost hot water button, can hear the relay click, see the power kick in with multimeter, and hear boiler fire up.
However, with the heating, the relay does not click, and nothing happens with the multimeter. Am I missing something here?
Also, there seems to be no easy way to schedule the hot water to come on. Fair enough for the heating, the thermostat can drive it, but not sure about hot water. Do I need to write scripts for this?
Oh, also thought touch screen was broken, but it’s very slow.
Anyway, looks like a cool project with OpenHAB looking very capable …
The heating relay is the main issue …
