Trane thermostat indicator
« on: June 22, 2011, 07:21:05 am »
I just got this app, it is very nice.

I set a 'status label', 'heat status' box which I hoped would show the current operating mode of the HVAC.  It shows 'cooling', which is the mode the unit is set to.  I want an indicator to show idle, cooling, or heating showing what the unit is currently doing, not only what mode it is set to.

Also, the pre-made thermostat panels do not seem to indicate the current mode (idle, cool, heat) by text.  Am I missing something?

Automatorapp shows the word 'idle' under the temp in the tstat.

 Can I do this?

Hi Intrepid,

We currently use the variables exposed to us in HVAC_UserOperatingMode1, however a short glance at HVAC_OperatingState1 is the service that exposes the "idle" state. I will take a look at what it takes to swap over, or add new status label to give you this.

Update: I have added this to the app... now the app has a "Settings" status and a "Status" status for HVAC...
The "Status" version is what you were looking for... this will give you the idle state. This will go into testing with our beta testers and will be included in the next release
