@buster said in pimatic-maxcul and max! cube with aculfw acting as CUL:
EQ-3/ELV MAX! 99017
1 : If you create a so called ‘max cul stick’ you don’t need a cube
2 : Most of the guides and compiling scripts are projected for linux, So best way is indeed flashing from the pi
3 : Only a arduino with the max cul firmware and 1 or more sensors/actuators. No extra hardware needed.
4 : Range is not that good IMO. Most of the thermostatknobs are in (far) corners of a room. My max cul is connected to my NAS in a room and one of my thermostat knobs is in the living room. The room with the NAS is connected to a other room, from the other room you enter the hallway and from the hallway you enter the living room. When both (wooden) doors between NAS and hallway are closed it gives me reception issues with the thermostat in the living room (but not with the one in the bathroom upstairs). Leaving just one of the 2 doors open solves the problem
The blue dot on the left is where my max cul sits.
The little red bar is where my thermostatknob is
The blue bars are the 2 doors
If you look close on the plan, you see a toiletroom. Right above the toilet, on the floor above is the bathroom with another eq3 thermostat knob, that one has no issues with reception.
