Video is done. Adding some wiring diagrams, mechanical drawings and some more graphics to describe what it does and how it does it in the best way (and avoid questions :wink: )


#22

Thanks for the update. So I guess we could see the crowd funding campaign by the end of the week.

I just purchase the HestiaPi Touch Kit – Saver the purpose was use it in the US as my HVAC. Heat and air conditioning. Do I have everything I need I chose this kit because I already had a Pi zero 0 already. We are talking about doing a Youtube video for the assembly and setup and I would like to make sure we have everything to make this work. Please let me know if I need other parts.

How many contacts do you want to control? The “HestiaPi Touch Kit – Saver” has 2 relays, so 2 contacts in total.

Damn I didn’t received the forum notification mail. Can’t wait!

I need 3 based on what I am seeing. I need one for heat, one for AC, and One For Fan. Do I just need another relay? Also can I use the C wire to power the thermostat? Thanks for the help

Yes you need another relay but it won’t fit the PCB I am afraid. The C wire provides 24V AC while the PSU you got supports only 100-240V AC. The HVAC model offered in the crowdfunding campaign offers both of these features.

Well that’s great so now I don’t have what I need so the Youtube video is not going to be worth while. Wish I knew that before I order. Can I just get the parts I need? I can’t us what I have.

Any Suggestion other that buying another whole kit. Things can never be easy.

You would need to solder 3 wires between the existing PCB and something like this:


If this is something you can handle and you can confirm it will fit in your setup, I will double check and recommend the right part. Just a warning: We haven’t done this modification before. Our boards so far have been HVAC or EU versions which are incompatible with each other
