LCZ251 Living Connect Z Thermostat 2.51

This describes the Z-Wave device LCZ251, manufactured by Danfoss with the thing type UID of danfoss_lcz251_00_000.

The LCZ251 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 LCZ251 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.

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the LCZ251 -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Setpoint (heating) thermostat_setpoint Temperature Number
Battery Level battery-level Battery Number

Setpoint (heating)

Sets the thermostate setpoint.

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

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.

Device Configuration

The device has no configuration parameters configured.

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 LCZ251 supports 1 association group.

Group 1: Target for Wakeup and Override Notifications

This group supports 1 nodes.
