Danfoss have launched a new version of their Z-Wave Radiator Thermostat. The £60 LC13 TRV has upgraded firmware for improved network range and resolves an issue with Vera home automation controllers…
Danfoss has released a new Z-Wave Radiator Thermostat (TRV) for 2014. The Danfoss LC-13 (014G0013) has all the features of the previous version but has updated firmware based the new Z-Wave v4.5 SDK.
The new firmware means that the Danfoss TRV has better Z-Wave network stability and increased wireless range. These firmware enhancements resolve the recent issues with controllers such as VERA, where the TRV entered ‘Panic’ mode and stopped communicating with the Z-Wave network. The solution to this issue was to downgrade VERA to a previous version of Z-Wave firmware. The new version of the Danfoss TRV resolves this issue, enabling you to continue using the VERA’s latest version of firmware.
The Danfoss TRV enables you to control the temperature of any radiator, it includes adapters so that it can be fitted to almost all standard radiators. You can then control the setpoint (the temperature at which the radiator is On/Off) wirelessly via Z-Wave or manual using the buttons and LCD on the TRV.
