The Adax adapter allows you to connect your Adax user to Futurehome, and control all your Adax WiFi unit using the Futurehome app.
When connecting the Adax adapter to Futurehome, all your Adax devices will appear in the Futurehome app. If you only wish to include some devices to Futurehome, simply delete the unwanted devices from the device list. See "setup" below for more information.
The Adax adapter sends and receives reports to/from the Adax app, and you can therefore control your heaters from both apps, and the other will update continuously.
The adapter supports:
- Setting desired room temperature (setpoint)
- Getting sensor data from temperature sensor
- Reporting total energy consumption in kWh
To install the adapter you need to be in the new Futurehome app, and follow these steps:
- Go to settings → playground → Adax WiFi and click the download button.
- Click on the button with three dots → login.
(PS: Logging in through Google is not supported, even though it is listed as an option.)
If you successfully logged in, all your devices will be included to Futurehome. This may take a few seconds depending on how many devices you have. After all your devices are included, place them in their correlating rooms in Futurehome. The heater will then behave like any other thermostat, and will listen to all your modes and triggers.
When first installing and logging in to the adapter, all of your devices will appear in Futurehome. If you wish to only have some of your Adax heaters in Futurehome, simply go to the device you wish to remove and click "delete". If you accidentally delete a device and want it back to the Futurehome app, go to settings → playground → Adax Wifi → settings → advanced setup and click "sync". This will make all of your devices be reincluded to Futurehome.
Initially the devices will send temperature reports every 5 minutes. Depending on how many devices you have in Futurehome and how often you want temperature to update, you may want to change this setting. By going to settings -> playground -> Adax WiFi -> settings -> advanced setup, you can change the Poll Time to whatever you want. Simply change the value to how many minutes you want between each poll, and click save. After saving this value you will need to go to the Adax WiFi app in playground and click the red square to stop the app, followed by the blue play button to start the app again.
