Have you checked on the OpenZwave site? According to this http://www.pepper1.net/zwavedb/device/170 it should support command class 0x43

I seem to be making process, slowly though.

Last night I deleted the object type and the object for the thermostat. I also deleted the log and ozw config file prior to rebooting my server. The object type and object were recreated after a short period of time. What I noticed was that the object type was classed as a ZWAVE DEVICE, where as before it was a THERMOSTAT. I now receive an additional line in the log file when I enter a setpoint temperature and can see that my SRT321 has received it, although I need to see what the time lag is as I can't confirm what the wakeup interval is. But will work on that.

So I'm making progress on getting all of the components working. My next issue in the boiler controller, the Thermoplus ASR2-RF http://www.pepper1.net/zwavedb/device/44. OSA picks it up as a thermostat which I believe is should do, but doesn't pick up the multi channel switches. This makes is difficult to automate and operate via OSA.

Any idea on what I could do would be helpful.

It seems as though your actual thermostat, not the OSA plugin should communicate with the receiver. If your receiver is joined to the network then the next thing I would think you need to do is create an association between the thermostat and the receiver.

OSA gives the thermostat a setpoint. The thermostat determines heat is needed and sends a command to the receiver. Have you looked through this manual http://www.zwave-products.co.uk/online/ ... _in_en.pdf on setting it up?

I'm managed to get the association between the Thermostat and the Boiler Controller working. The Boiler Controller has two switches, 1 for heating and 1 for hot water. Both of these switches should be controllable via Z Wave looking at the manual as the Thermostat only controls the heating switch.

That link does not seem to be working for me it just goes to the home page of the store.

Do you want the thermostat to control one of the outputs and OSA to control the other?

What methods and properties did OSA create for the receiver object?

Try this link instead; http://www.vesternet.com/resources/appl ... es/apnt-51

I get no methods other than Off and On. There is only a single object created, where as I believe there should be three as you should see from the details in the link.

Looks like Vera works differently than OSA. Since the receiver is only one node on the Zwave network it should be only one OSA object not three like the Vera. But the OSA object should have methods for turning on/off both outputs.

The receiver many not be properly recognized by OpenZwave. What does zVirtualScenes show for the receiver?
