Setup Home Assistant for H60

We recommend installing the Hassio image as it is easiest to configure and have the easy to use and nice looking Lovelace graphical interface.

This is how configuration.yaml is setup.
Note the first secrtion
mqtt:
username: homeassistant
password: password

This is where you enable thebuilt in mqtt server for Home Assustan.

CONFIGURATON.YAML
Depending on type, brand or model of heat pump you are having the sensor definitions has to be adjusted to match the specific heat pump.

So what you need to do is to add, remove and change the sensor definitions to match the correct Sensor ID:s (0001 in this case) with the correct description in HA, “Rad Return”
The available and usable Sensor ID:s for different heatpumps can be found in the H60 web interface home screen. Also your MAC address has to be entered to every definition as this is how your H60 identifies itself.

  • platform: mqtt
    state_topic: ” 841d2e82daf0/HP/0001″
    name: “Rad Return”
    icon: mdi:thermometer
    unit_of_measurement: “C”

Values to be adjusted are highlighted.

To be able to change settings in the heat pump, the SET topic must be enabled by changing the H60 setting MQTT_SUB to 1. Reset H60 after settings are changed.

Additionaly H60 is subscribing on the CMD topic to perform various requests.

Send data “STATUS” to the CMD topic to have H60 to publish current status. For example: Uptime, Wifi signal strength, etc.

Send data “GETALL” to the CMD topic to request H60 to publish an update on all heat pump data.
