Integration between healthy home Coach temperature sensor and valves via homekit

Post by sergeantd »

After issues with Temperature readings of Netatmo valves (the room was much colder than the readings on the valves) I found a solution for controlling Netatmo valves from healthy home coach. In order to achieve this I used an app called Controller and did some automations due to limited Home app functions.
1. You have to create a new automation then add start event - value of characteristic set to any - and use temperature sensor of coach
2. Add contition - value of characteristic - select coach temperature sensor - set to desired temperature through value of characteristic and then set comparison operator to less or equal.
Also If you want you can set timespan as an additional contition to maintain your program.
3. Select scene. In my case I Used the 4 valves equipped this room and set then to a high temprature.

You can also set a new automation to a lower temperature when the desired temperature is reached

So my automation looks like this

And these are the readings from energy app and home coach coach app at the same timespan with automation running.

Well done sir 👍

For non-homekit-users: something similar can be achieved with the weather station using IFTTT, since both products support this platform as well. However the Healthy Home Coach does not.

If there was a way to „correct valve temperature readings“ like this, all our problems would go away.
Home: Weather Station (V3 + Rain Gauge, Wind Gauge, 3 additional Indoor Modules), Valves Starter Pack + 5 additional Valves, Smart Video Doorbell
Office: Thermostat (V2), Healthy Home Coach, Smart Smoke Alarm

If you have weather station v3 which HomeKit is supported I believe you can do it with the same way. V2 users can use homebridge on raspberry to add weather station in homekit and then follow the same procedure.

But what about the heating plans in the netatmo app? What did you set ther?? Because now only the manual boost is set when heating is activated.

Have you test it? Is it working properly?

You can set a lower standard temperature in this room (e.g. 17C) in the Energy app and then create new automations in Controller app for your desired timespans.

I used the “absent” setting in the app and kept the two routines from above in homekit. But as I said, these only run briefly in "boost mode" and go off again. so doesn't really work. or something is wrong with my settings.
