With the goldair 2000w pt heater this one )

Will it burn a toddler if they go up and touch it?

I thought a wall based fan heater might be safer for a babyroom.

I can't seem to find any really nice wall based fan heaters, the room is small double size. There is a lot more space on the walls higher up than at ground level.

We had the 1kw version before we got rid of it and it got pretty hot. We replaced it with a (much more expensive but much better) Dimplex heater which does not get anywhere near as hot. We have mounted it on the wall in the nursery and are happy with it.

I grabbed one of these heaters for $185 on special (2000W version).

 

I'm running home assistant in docker on ubuntu.

 

Unfortunately I've updated the firmware to the latest version already before reading all of this thread.

 

1. What is the recommended current method for setting this up with home assistant?

 

2. Will the instructions here: https://github.com/nikrolls/homeassistant-goldair-climate work with the latest firmware?

 

3. To find out the UUID / Device ID on android do I use "Tuya Smart" or "Smart Life - Smart Living" or "Jinvoo Smart" App? (android instructions)

 

4. Because I'm on the latest firmware do I need to install this python tuya updated protocol and then following the instructions in this post here?

Thanks for writing the custom component, I'm using home assistant docker.

 

I got stuck at this point here -> https://github.com/nikrolls/homeassistant-goldair-climate/issues/20

Thanks for making the code available. I'm trying out Home Assistant via a Docker container ...

 

The only issue I had was that my Docker version of Home Assistant couldn't install Python dependencies properly so it couldn't find 'pytuya', but after a manual 'pip' installation, it works fine.

 

 

Can you please explain how you did this?  I'm using docker compose.

netd:

 

I contacted support, the 13 degree limit was because normal mode was set to 17. Eco is limited to 4 degrees below normal mode (bit strange, but oh well).

 

A fork of python-tuya has been updated to include the new protocol.  Pretty simple to update the Home-Assistant module to use it.

 

Install https://github.com/belzedaar/python-tuya in your home assistant python environment.

 

Edit custom_components/goldair_heater/__init__.py

 

Modify the REQUIREMENTS line to 
REQUIREMENTS = ['pytuya==7.0.4']

 

Find the line (line 134 in mine):
self._api = pytuya.Device(dev_id, address, local_key, 'device')

 

and add on the next line (remember that python cares about spaces - space it out to the same indent level):
self._api.set_version(3.3)

 

Restart Home-Assistant and it should start working again

 

 

 

 

I can add REQUIREMENTS = ['pytuya==7.0.4'] inside goldair_heater/goldair.py ; but it wont work inside goldair_heater/__init__.py

 

If I add REQUIREMENTS = ['pytuya==7.0.4'] to __init__.py I get error that pytuya version 7.0.4 not available.

 

I am importing pytuya by using the following code

 

 

 

        import custom_components.pytuya as pytuya
        self._name = name
        self._api = pytuya.Device(dev_id, address, local_key, 'device')
        self._api.set_version(3.3)

You did get that specific PyTuya release? It is not the official one - although that has now been updated to support the new protocol, I have not tried it so do not know if the same changes will work.

I tried both releases.
I got it going, but I get intermittent unavailable errors. Both pytua versions, using both 3.1 and 3.3 protocol.

I'm having issues with these heaters, two of them. I can control them only if I'm connected to my home wifi. In case I'm trying to control them via mobile network or some other wireless network, I'm getting the "No Lan connection or device is occupied"

 

I think this is the reason I'm unable to control it via HA as well.

 

 

 

Question: now that Tuya Convert 2 is out, did anyone manage to flash tasmota and control these heaters?

I don't think there is a tuya convert setup for flashing the heater, they have lots of other devices, but no template for the heater, they mostly just have lights and switches, heater has more options. At least that's what I noted on their GitHub and wiki.
