# NoboHub Binding

This binding controls the Glen Dimplex Nobø Hub using the Nobø Hub API v1.1.

Nobo Hub

It lets you read and change temperature and profile settings for zones, and read and set active overrides to change the global mode of the hub.

This binding is tested with the following devices:

  • Thermostats for different electrical panel heaters
  • Thermostats for heating in floors
  • Nobø Switch SW 4

# Thermostats

Not all thermostats are made equal.

  • NCU-1R: Comfort temperature setting on the device overrides values from the Hub, making the setting in the Hub useless.
  • NCU-2R: Synchronizes temperature settings to and from the Hub.

# Supported Things

Thing Thing Type Description
hub Bridge The Nobø Hub provides a gateway between your components, with the ability to organise in zones.
component Thing A component is a device, i.e. panel heater or switch.
zone Thing A zone can hold one or more components.

# Discovery

The hub will be automatically discovered. Before it can be used, you will have to update the configuration with the last three digits of its serial number.

When the hub is configured with the correct serial number, it will autodetect zones and components (thermostats and switches).

# Thing Configuration

# Configuration for Nobø Hub
#
# Serial number of the Nobø hub to communicate with, 12 digits.
serialNumber=103000xxxxxx

# Host name or IP address of the Nobø hub
hostName=10.0.0.10

# Channels

# Hub

channel type description
activeOverrideName String The name of the active override

# Zone

channel type description
activeWeekProfileName String The name of the active week profile
activeWeekProfile Number The active week profile id
comfortTemperature Number:Temperature The configured comfort temperature
ecoTemperature Number:Temperature The configured eco temparature
currentTemperature Number:Temperature The current temperature in the zone
calculatedWeekProfileStatus String The current override based on week profile

CurrentTemperature only works if the zone has a device that reports it (e.g. a switch).

# Component

# Organize your setup

Nobø Hub uses a combination of status types (Normal, Comfort, Eco, Away), profiles types (Comfort, Eco, Away, Off), predefined temperature types (Comfort, Eco, Away), zones and override settings to organize and enable different features. This makes it possible to control the heaters in many different scenarios and combinations. The following is a suggested way of organizing the binding with the Hub for a good level of control and flexibility.

If you own panels with a physical Comfort temperature override, you need to use the Eco temperature type for setting level used by the day based profiles. If not, you can use either Comfort or Eco to set wanted level.

Start by creating the following profiles in the Nobø Hub App:

OFF                 Set to status off all day, every day.
ON                  Set to status [Comfort|Eco] all day, every day
Eco                 Set to status Eco all day, every day
Away                Set to status Away all way, every day
Weekday 06->16      Set to status [Comfort|Eco] between 06->16 every weekday, otherwise set to [Away|Off]
Weekday 06->23      Set to status [Comfort|Eco] between 06->23 every weekday, otherwise set to [Away|Off]
Weekend 06->16      Set to status [Comfort|Eco] between 06->16 in the weekend, otherwise set to [Away|Off]
Weekend 06->23      Set to status [Comfort|Eco] between 06->23 in the weekend, otherwise set to [Away|Off]
Every day 06->16    Set to status [Comfort|Eco] between 06->16 every day, otherwise set to [Away|Off]
Every day 06->23    Set to status [Comfort|Eco] between 06->23 every day, otherwise set to [Away|Off]

Next set [Comfort|Eco] level for each zone to your requirements. For a more advanced setup, you can create a rule which both sets temperature level and profile.

Then create a sitemap with a Selection pointing to the Week Profile item. The binding will now automatically update all available week profile options in the selection button:

# nobo.sitemap

sitemap nobo label="Nobø " {

    Frame label="Main Bedroom"{
      Selection item=MainBedroom_Zone_WeekProfile   
    }
}
