I have a new instalation with Confort and Velbus, I'm using the new modules VMBGPxB(W) and VNBGPOB(W), the learning process does not recognize this modules, how do i insert this modules in the instalation?.
I am looking for an underfloor heating control system for my new house build and like the Heatmiser solution but could I use the temperature sensor in the Velbus VMBGP touch module and it it possible to integrate these with the Heatmiser thermostats?
I currently have an Ultra II with the RS485 Heatmiser UCM in anticipation.
Hi, hopefully 4 years on there has been some positive orogress in adding support for these Velbus modules? The glass modules are now a key part of the Velbus system and the large Comfort + Velbus installation I am planning may need to be reconsidered if these devices are not supported. Fingers crossed!
In the event the Velbus glass push button modules are not supported, are there any other push button modules that could be used as an alternative for controlling light switches (e.g. Niko, zwave, other)?
We have not done any further development on Velbus for several years, the reaons being;
The Velbus protocol is relatively difficult to support as each device has a diferent profile which requires changes in Comfigurator software and firmware in order to handle
They have discontinued many modules that we supported and have replaced it with new models which require different profiles so it has been difficult to keep up.
Velleman have not been very keen to support 3rd party integraton after our initial cooperation many years ago which was positive
I had a phone call from the UK importer of Velbus about this matter, and he has suggested ways to go forward with Velbus. We are keen to do it, as we had spent much effort on this interface, so we will be looking at it again.
Hi Chiu, that is good news. I have had velbus working in my comfort setup for a few years now and am very happy with how it performs. They are better priced than cbus and seem to do the same job. Hopefully with any new development we can get a slide bar for dimming the lights . Maybe velbus are not aware of how many people use velbus with comfort so we could all send a email asking them to please help you guys?
