Title: Multisensor ZW100 Temperature calibration guide
Post by: thief on February 11, 2018, 01:30:55 pm
This is a temperature calibration guide for the Aeotec Multi-sensor 6 in 1 (gen 5) ZW100 with fw 1.10 / 1.11
I made this guide for total beginners (like me), who doesn't understand the manual.

I spent 6 hours to figure this out. So I thought sharing it with you all.
I don't know if this is the only/correct way to do it, but it works 100%
All other guides I tried failed.

Thank you. I have been waiting for something like this a very long time.
What about humidity? Have you been able to change it?

Yes it's similar to temp calibration.

Parameter= 202 Size= 1 byte hex/dec

If it shows too little= just add a decimal value from 1-50 (1-50RH)
variable=202 --- data size=1byte dec --- desired value=yourvalue1-50

If it shows too much= Substract from 255.
  -1 RH = 254
  -2 RH = 253
  -3 RH = 252
-10 RH = 245 etc.

example: your humidity sensor shows 5RH too much:
variable=202 --- data size=1byte dec --- desired value=250

Thank you for doing this. My ZW100 arrived today and the temperature was inaccurate. After Google searching I found the links below and was about to write a guide, and then I searched on vera ZW100 instead of vera aeotec multisensor 6 and found your post. Anyway, here are the details on how to set the device configuration. Some of it is out of date, but still helpful.

Configuration parameters: https://products.z-wavealliance.org/products/1390/configs (https://products.z-wavealliance.org/products/1390/configs)
Parameters can also be viewed in AltUI>Devices>device name (default is 6 in 1 Multisensor)>device icon>zWaveDB.

Info on setting the temperature offset: https://aeotec.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000120736-calibrating-offsetting-temperature-on-multisensor-6-excel-easy-sheet-included (https://aeotec.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000120736-calibrating-offsetting-temperature-on-multisensor-6-excel-easy-sheet-included)

The Windows calculator converts from decimal to hexadecimal. In Windows 7 and above, use the Programmer interface under View. Hex or decimal numbers can be used in the device parameters but make sure the parameter Data Size and Desired Value are appropriate for the parameter (variable) used.

Attached screen image shows temp decreased 2 degrees, humidity increased 2 percent. Placing a dash after the parameter number allows a description to be included.
