Danfoss Living, new release no longer supporting Z-Wave!

It seems Danfoss has released a new version of Danfoss Living (014G0002) in August which no longer supports Z-Wave, the Z-Wave logo has also been removed ….

Hi JensFup :slight_smile: (DK)

I heard rumors, that Danfoss will be releasing 2 types of Living Connect Thermostats.

1 only supporting their own controller and 1 with Z-wave support.

The rumor i not yet confirmed. What i don’t understand is, that the firmware is changed to remove z-wave support in the existing model range, and a new one is created to support Z-wave. Sounds a bit upside down to me…

Hi Eddie (from DK).

I really hope your right with that rumour……, personally I’m not convinced, I want to see (read) it before I believe it. Meanwhile, I will have to send them back my newly purchased Danfoss Living thermostats.

I don’t get it, why does Danfoss want to split it up in two products; it will give them a lot of snags, like backward compatibility, confusion in the market, extra stock management, and so on…. I simply don’t get it.

Additional, why is Danfoss introducing this the silently way, from one day to the other, without preparing the market. Releasing the “improved” version, but not the z-wave version at the same time…. I simply don’t get it.

I hope Danfoss will step up and bring a bit of light into this mystery.

Hello. We are aware. Danfoss decided to create new version of thermostates which is only compatible with Danfoss Living Connect Wall controller. They will start supplying former version ( zwave compatible ) in the end of September, so everything will go back to normal.

Hi. I just realized that I bought 8 Dannfoss thermostats with the wrong firmware version 3.02. Is there any way to downgrade the FW to the z-wave compatible version 2.50?

Ah. Sounds like you have a newer version. I have been waiting for a newer firmware model to address the panic mode issue that the 2.51 variants have.
