Drayton Wiser Binding

This binding integrates the Drayton Wiser Smart Heating System. The integration happens through the HeatHub, which acts as an IP gateway to the ZigBee devices (thermostats and TRVs).

Supported Things

The Drayton Wiser binding supports the following things:

Bridge Label Description
heathub HeatHub The network device in the controller that allows us to interact with the other devices in the system
Thing Label Description
boiler-controller Boiler Controller The HeatHub attached to the boiler. This also acts as the hub device
room Room Name Virtual groups of Room Thermostats and TRVs that can have temperatures and humidities
roomstat Thermostat Wireless thermostats which monitor temperature and humidity, and call for heat
itrv iTRV Wireless TRVs that monitor temperature, alter the radiator valve state and call for heat
hotwater Hot Water Virtual thing to manage hot water states
smart-plug Smart Plug Wireless plug sockets which can be remotely switched

Discovery

The HeatHub can be discovered automatically via mDNS, however the secret cannot be determined automatically. Once the secret has been configured, all other devices can be discovered by triggering device discovery again.

Thing Configuration

HeatHub Configuration

Once discovered, the HeatHub secret needs to be configured. There are a few ways to obtain this, assuming you have already configured the system using the Wiser App.

  1. Temporarily install a packet sniffing tool on your mobile device. Every request made includes the secret in the header.
  2. Enable setup mode on the HeatHub. Connect a machine temporarily to the WiserHeat_XXXXX network and browse to http://192.168.8.1/secret to obtain the secret.

The refresh interval defines in seconds, how often the binding will poll the controller for updates.

The awaySetPoint defines the temperature in degrees Celsius that will be sent to the heathub when away mode is activated.
