Platforms

This integration supports the following platforms.

Climate

The integration adds an entity for climate with controls for preset ventilation modes and fan mode. It also has state for temperatures.

Sensor

The integration adds entities for sensors with different readings from the device. There is currently support for the following sensors:

  • Outside air temperature
  • Supply air temperature
  • Exhaust air temperature
  • Extract air temperature
  • Room temperature
  • Fireplace ventilation remaining duration
  • Rapid ventilation remaining duration
  • Supply air fan control signal
  • Supply air fan
  • Exhaust air fan control signal
  • Exhaust air fan
  • Electric heater power
  • Air filter operating time
  • Heat exchanger efficiency
  • Heat exchanger speed

Binary sensor

The integration adds an entity for a binary sensor called Air filter polluted which tells if it’s time to change the filters in the unit.

Switch

The integration adds an entity for a switch called Electric heater that controls the heating element in the unit.

A note about shutting down the device

Flexit recommends that the function to turn off the unit is not made accessible in the interface for an ordinary user. It will therefore be removed from the integration in the future.

The consequences of shutting down the unit can be costly and extensive. For example, there can be condensation issues in freezing temperatures, and rotary heat exchangers can freeze.

If you need to shut down the unit, make sure to take all necessary precautions, such as securing the system with frost protection dampers.

Furthermore, Flexit recommends to unplug the unit from the power socket before replacing a filter. To prevent damage, always initiate a controlled shutdown from the control panel (or, in the future, from a service call in Home Assistant) before unplugging the device.
