The thermostat must be installed by an authorised installer. The power to the thermostat must be disconnected at all times during installation.
After the thermostat has been connected according to the user manual, the device can be included in the Futurehome Smarthub.
To connect the device with the Smarthub, the hub must be set to inclusion mode. This is done by going to settings → devices → add new device → Zigbee → start. When the app searches for the device, set the thermostat to inclusion mode. This is done by holding down the minus key (-) for 8 seconds. The Zigbee icon on the thermostat should be flashing.
When the thermostat has been found, tap "Ok, done!". The device is now at the bottom of your device list. Tap on it → go to settings → give the device a name, a function and a room.
To delete the device, go to the device list → select the relay → settings → delete. It will load for 5 seconds before confirming that it has been deleted.
On March 2nd, a Zigbee update was released which introduces OTA update for the thermostat:
- Improvements in temperature reporting.
- Fixed incorrect temperature readings.
- Improvements in energy reporting.
To start the update, you must first update the Smarthub, see instructions here. Once the Smarthub is updated, the thermostat will start the update automatically. You will receive status updates on the update in your timeline.
The thermostat has two temperature sensors, an internal room sensor and a floor sensor. You select which sensor you want to use in the thermostat's menu. Open it on the device by holding down (+) and (-) at the same time for 5 seconds. Setting No. 1 is sensor selection, press (...) to enter the sensor menu. Here you select the sensor with the (+) and (-) keys:
00 = internal room sensor
01 = floor sensor
02 = maximum guard.
When the correct sensor is selected, press the power button to confirm.
The thermostat has two channels (if you have questions about channels, you can follow this link). The first channel is the main channel which contains the thermostat function and the temperature sensor you have selected on the thermostat. Channel 2 is the temperature sensor you did not select.
The latest version of the thermostat has an internal power meter. If you don't see the consumption automatically, it means you have the first version without a power meter.
This can be resolved by pressing "additional features" within the thermostat and manually entering the power consumption. If you don't know the consumption, it is recommended that an electrician measure it with a clamp meter or try turning the thermostat on and off a few times to see the difference in total consumption. Enter the value in watts, not kilowatts. (Ex. 1800, not 1.8).
There are 5 modes on the thermostat: heat, home, eco away, sleep and auto.
Heat: This is the recommended mode that follows your command, either by manually pressing the device, changing the temperature in the app or by automations in the app's modes, shortcuts or automations.
Home: This sets the thermostat's own home mode. The temperature is then set to 22 degrees and the temperature cannot be changed in the app. You can manually change this temperature on the thermostat, see setting 8 in the thermostat's menu.
Eco away: This sets the thermostat's own away mode. Then the temperature is set to 15 degrees and the temperature cannot be changed in the app. You can manually change this temperature on the thermostat, see setting 9 in the thermostat's menu.
Sleep: The night mode sets the temperature to 18 degrees. This cannot be changed on the thermostat or via the app.
Auto: The thermostat has a built-in weekly program. On auto, it is this program that runs. The program is intended as an alternative for those who do not want to configure the mode/shortcut/automation on their own, and thus cannot be changed. For most people, it will be correct not to use auto, but rather to create their own modes/shortcuts/automation.
To open the menu on the thermostat, hold (+) and (-) together for 5 seconds. In the menu, numbers displayed represent each setting. To edit the setting, press (...). Then change the value of the setting and save with the power button.
- Sensor type:
00: Internal room sensor
01: Floor sensor
02: Max guard (regulates based on air temperature, but has a maximum limit on the floor sensor. This is suitable for e.g. wooden floors).
- Floor sensor type:
0: 10 kOhm (supplied).
1: 12 kOhm
2: 15 kOhm
3: 47 kOhm
- Max guard temperature: 20-95°C. Standard is 27°C.
--: No limit.
- Turn: 1-9°C. Standard is 2°C.
- Calibration: -9 to +9°C. Default is 0°C.
- Highest set point: 35-90°C. Standard is 35°C.
- Lowest set point: 0-30 °C. Standard is 5°C.
- Home mode set point: (This is a mode on the thermostat, not in the app, and must not be confused). Standard is 22°C.
- Away mode set point: Standard is 15°C.
- Brightness of the display in sleep mode: 1-10. The default is 1.
- Open window detection:
- Restarting the thermostat: Select == and wait 5 seconds.
- Factory settings: Select == and wait 5 seconds.
a) Zigbee icon. It flashes when the thermostat is in search mode and lights up steadily when is connected to the Zigbee network.
b) Day (1-7: Mon-Sun) and time. This is set automatically via the Smarthub when they are connected.
c) Home and away mode.
d) Indicator for whether it is heating or not. If it is heating up, the lines will move to the right. If the max guard is used and the bars are flashing, it indicates that the limit is exceeded.
e) Indicator flashes if an open window is detected.
f) Manual and auto.
g) Indicates that the temperature is set.
h) Indicator for child lock/button lock.
Troubleshooting the thermostat
In order for the thermostat to be as stable as possible, we strongly recommend only using the heat mode. After this, you can instead set up automations, app modes or shortcuts that change your temperature.
Does the thermostat change modes by itself?
- It could be that the thermostat is in auto mode on the thermostat, which causes jumping between modes in a weekly program. The solution is to set heat mode.
- If you have activated the Power Control Panel, this optimisation will be able to set modes on the thermostat. In these cases, it is supposed to switch between modes to save power.
The display is turned off and the child lock is on. How do I turn the display back on?
If you turn on the child lock and turn off the thermostat display, the thermostat still works, it may just seem to be turned off or that the screen is defective.
To deactivate the child lock and turn the display back on, press the buttons on the thermostat in the following order:
- hold “menu” (3 dots) and “minus” for 10 seconds
- hold “on” for 10 seconds.
