DTHERMZ5 Z-Wave room sensor

This describes the Z-Wave device DTHERMZ5, manufactured by Danfoss with the thing type UID of danfoss_dthermz5_00_000.

DTHERMZ5 product image

The DTHERMZ5 supports routing. This allows the device to communicate using other routing enabled devices as intermediate routers. This device is unable to participate in the routing of data from other devices.

The DTHERMZ5 does not permanently listen for messages sent from the controller - it will periodically wake up automatically to check if the controller has messages to send, but will sleep most of the time to conserve battery life. The wakeup period can be configured in the user interface - it is advisable not to make this too short as it will impact battery life - a reasonable compromise is 1 hour. The wakeup period does not impact the devices ability to report events or sensor data. The device can be manually woken with a button press on the device as described below - note that triggering a device to send an event is not the same as a wakeup notification, and this will not allow the controller to communicate with the device.

Overview

No device information is provided in the database. Consider updating the database to improve the documentation.

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the DTHERMZ5 -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Sensor (temperature) sensor_temperature Temperature Number
Setpoint (cooling) thermostat_setpoint Temperature Number
Setpoint (heating) thermostat_setpoint Temperature Number
Scene Number scene_number   Number
Battery Level battery-level Battery Number

Sensor (temperature)

Indicates the current temperature.

The sensor_temperature channel supports the Number item and is in the Temperature category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Setpoint (cooling)

Sets the thermostate setpoint.

The thermostat_setpoint channel supports the Number item and is in the Temperature category.

Setpoint (heating)

Sets the thermostate setpoint.

The thermostat_setpoint channel supports the Number item and is in the Temperature category.

Scene Number

Triggers when a scene button is pressed.

The scene_number channel supports the Number item.

Battery Level

Represents the battery level as a percentage (0-100%). Bindings for things supporting battery level in a different format (e.g. 4 levels) should convert to a percentage to provide a consistent battery level reading.

The battery-level channel supports the Number item and is in the Battery category.

Wakeup Interval

The wakeup interval sets the period at which the device will listen for messages from the controller. This is required for battery devices that sleep most of the time in order to conserve battery life. The device will wake up at this interval and send a message to the controller to tell it that it can accept messages - after a few seconds, it will go back to sleep if there is no further communications.

This setting is defined in seconds. It is advisable not to set this interval too short or it could impact battery life. A period of 1 hour (3600 seconds) is suitable in most instances.

Note that this setting does not affect the devices ability to send sensor data, or notification events.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_interval and is of type INTEGER.

Wakeup Node

When sleeping devices wake up, they send a notification to a listening device. Normally, this device is the network controller, and normally the controller will set this automatically to its own address. In the event that the network contains multiple controllers, it may be necessary to configure this to a node that is not the main controller. This is an advanced setting and should not be changed without a full understanding of the impact.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_node and is of type INTEGER.

Association Groups

Association groups allow the device to send unsolicited reports to the controller, or other devices in the network. Using association groups can allow you to eliminate polling, providing instant feedback of a device state change without unnecessary network traffic.

The device does not support associations.
