Thermostat Hysteresis as a value to enable changes

Hello! Several of my clients ask me to be able to change the hysteresis of their thermostats.

Could be possible to add this parameter to the changeable values by users?

Meanwhile, I have to  make thermostats by calculations and programs, just to give them this feature.

Thank you!


Counter Log - Help with kWh calculation

Ricardo Pinto | visiontech.pt 1 year ago in bOS Configurator / Tasks updated 1 year ago 24

Hi people,

May I ask a little help about counter log?

I have a power sensor on an electric board. On ETS, I get an Instantaneous Power object (2 bytes), which comes in kW format. Like, if the house is consuming 1200W, I get 1,2 value on ETS, if it's consuming 250W, I get 0,25 value, and so on. I have the correct instant values showing on visualization.

I've tried to create counter logs, to get an approximate daily consumption, etc. The problem is that the values on the counter log don't make any sense.

For example, if the house is consuming constant 250W during 24hour, I should get 6 kWh by the end of the day, but the values don't make sense. On one day, it showed something like 138kWh on one day, which is impossible. I deleted all data now.

Either I'm configuring all wrong the counter log, or there's something I'm missing.

Thanks for any help


play sound How do I play a sound

Andy Gill 5 years ago in bOS Configurator / Tasks 0


Could someone explain how I play a sound based on a program or an event? Ideally through a client but failing that through the server?

I would like to play a warning sound should a condition not be met when the user is changing a mode.



Condition using user rights

Grzegorz Kulinski 10 months ago in bOS Configurator / Tasks 0


Is it possible to build a program based on the user rights condition?

The topic concerns air conditioning in the office. AC control is available from the KNX wall thermostats and from the visualization. Administrator has the option to lock thermostat on the wall to prevent office staff from changing some AC functions. At the same time, the same functions are available on the visualization for both regular users and the administrator.

My point is to block the execution of program (linked to the button on the visualization and KNX thermostat) by regular users, and allow execution only by users with administrator rights, without need to duplicate the button and program linked to it. I would like to include two conditions in the program that determine the ability to run the program.

Something like this:
If <thermostat> = blocked
     If <user_rights> = administrator
     Else <user_rights> = user



logic "ID" 2BF

I need to be able to perform an "ID" with a 20ºC value of 2BF. How can I do it

How does Output Cyclical Delay work in Thermostat

Andrew Watson yesterday at 6:10 a.m. in bOS Configurator / Tasks updated 14 hours ago 2

I am using a heating mode Thermostat with the type set to "switching". The "Output Cyclical Delay" parameter does not seem to have any affect on the operation of thermostat - changing from on -> off or off -> on seems to happen immediately at all times with no delay to prevent cycling of the heater. Could you please explain exactly what is the function of the "Output Cyclical Delay" and how I should use it.

Exit command

xarmeid 3 months ago in bOS Configurator / Tasks updated 3 months ago 2

Hi everyone,

i was wondering when closing a programm in bOS server if exit command should be used. It works in both cases (with and without exit).

As it starts with a default Start command, an exit command at the end will free the allocated memory or is it not necessary?

Best regards,

Program between hours (timeframe)

Michiel Kenis 3 months ago in bOS Configurator / Tasks updated by Jürgen Jürgenson 3 months ago 1

Hi there, 

I'm trying to sync my Hue motion detectors and my KNX detectors. In order to do so, I need to turn on the lights differently depending on the hour. 

Between 08h and 22h, the light needs to be "Bright" and between 22h and 8h it needs to be "Dimmed". 

So I set up a program with specific "if" statements, but the script gets confused. I think I applied the wrong order or nesting... 

I have following config:

But I have several rogue scenarios where lights don't turn on (correctly). 

How can I "nest" if-clauses or even create an if-else statement?
