This Virtual Device provides a quick and easy method for overriding your Heating Panel zones. It supports a manual override mode for both temperature and duration overrides, as well as the vacation/holiday mode for overriding the temperature only. In manual mode, durations greater than 24 hours can be selected, making it a convenient method of overriding the heating for days or weeks, until a selected date and time when the automatic heating schedule will be resumed. Therefore, the manual mode can also be used, for example, for vacations when a return date/time is known.
The Virtual Device will allow you to do the following:
This Virtual Device has been tested on Home Center 2 versions 4.100 through to 4.140.
When a change has been made, then an asterisk will appear in front of either the Mode or the Temperature/Duration or both to indicate that the current value has been overridden. Press the Set button to apply the changes and the asterisk(s) will disappear to indicate that these are now the currently set values. Press Auto and then Set to return to the regular heating schedule. If the Reset button is pressed before the pressing Set, then the current settings for the zone will be displayed and any overridden values will be cleared.
The current temperature of the room(s) that are controlled by the selected zone are displayed at the bottom of the device.
On system startup, if the zone is not selected, then it will default to the zone that currently controls that room that the VD is located in (or the first zone, if no room is assigned). You can either add the VD to each room and use it to control the heating panel for each room individually, or you can add the VD to one room and then use the zone selectors to determine which heating panel zone to control.
