Transform Dimmer into temperature regulator
« on: April 19, 2017, 06:24:44 am »
Hi! I am a newbie and sorry for asking questions that may be answered elsewhere.
 
I want to control the temperature level of an old boiler by changing the Resistance of an input to it (by simulating a  NTC sensor)
Ideally, I could use a Fibaro/Qubino dimmer(?) to do this by controling a potentiometer (maybe optocoupler, mosfet or other).
Two questions:
- how can I  change the scale from "%" to "degrees Celsius"  as viewed in my Vera Plus controller. Reprogramming of dimmer or Vera? Luup programming?
-Any other z-wave component that you would suggest.

Thanks!!!
