Installation

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.

Inclusion

To connect the device with the Smarthub, the hub must be set to inclusion mode. This is done by going to settings settings.svg → 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 setup.svg settings → give the device a name, a function and a room.

Exclusion

To delete the device, go to the device list → select the relay → setup.svg settings → delete. It will load for 5 seconds before confirming that it has been deleted.

Configuration

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.

Unfortunately, the thermostat does not have power measurement. It can be solved by either knowing how much it uses or by having an electrician measure it with a clamp ammeter. Then, you enter this value in additional functions → assigned power value. This value will be reported to the system every time the thermostat switches on. As of 01.06.22, this function has not been launched, but is under development. The manual will be updated as soon as it launches.

Power measurement

Since the thermostat does not have an internal power meter, you need to enter this value manually. Go to "additional functions" and then enter how many watts it draws. Note that this must be written in watts, and not in kilowatts, i.e. 1800 W.
The electrician will often know how much the thermostat draws, either by calculating or measuring with a clamp ammeter. If you want to do measure it yourself, you can turn the thermostat on and off and see the difference in the total power draw in the household.

If you do not find "additional functions" under the thermostat, double check that you have updated the Smarthub and the Futurehome app.

Advanced settings

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.

  1. 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).

  2. Floor sensor type:
    0: 10 kOhm (supplied).
    1: 12 kOhm
    2: 15 kOhm
    3: 47 kOhm

  3. Max guard temperature: 20-95°C. Standard is 27°C.
    --: No limit.

  4. Turn: 1-9°C. Standard is 2°C.

  5. Calibration: -9 to +9°C. Default is 0°C.

  6. Highest set point: 35-90°C. Standard is 35°C.

  7. Lowest set point: 0-30 °C. Standard is 5°C.

  8. Home mode set point: (This is a mode on the thermostat, not in the app, and must not be confused). Standard is 22°C.

  9. Away mode set point: Standard is 15°C.

  10. Brightness of the display in sleep mode: 1-10. The default is 1.

  11. Open window detection:
    0: disabled
    1: enabled

  12. Restarting the thermostat: Select == and wait 5 seconds.

  13. 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.
