Description

Freshbox2Mqtt and Mqtt2Freshbox monitor and controls BlaubergFreshbox wifi units with the powerful MQTT protocol. A protocol used by most automation systems on the market today. Like for example. Homeseer, Home Assistant, Homey, Fibaro HC3, Node Red, Iobroker and OpenHAB. Compatible with  Blauberg Freshbox 100 and 200 Wifi  units. We have ready monitor and control software to link these fans up against a mqtt broker (server). This means that they can be monitored and controlled individually or in groups from any mqtt client with rights and access to the server. The programs runs on a suitable PC, Mac or Linux device as eg Raspberry Pi. A session must be connected per fan you wish to control. The controller and fan should be in the same network, otherwise it must be routed so that the controller reaches both the fan and the server. The best solution is to have a controller for each wifi network. The controller must be able to run Python 3 and must have installed the MQTT library and the python-six library. The Mqtt broker (server) can be local or public. For example, I use a controller for wifi (raspberry Pi w / several mqtt2fan processes controlled by pm2 (process manager). In addition, I have a controller on a virtual Pi for office wifi and fans. Requires: MQTT Broker (eg Mosquitto). Raspberry Pi or other Linux controller, Mac or PC that can run Python. Wifi network. One license for each unit you wish to control. If you buy one or more Blauberg Freshbox Wifi units you get a 25% discount on the licenses! If you have purchased a license and want more, contact us and we will expand to two or more licenses. Its not possible to use two 1-license modules against one broker. Then you have to have a 1-license module and a 2-license module. etc. Freshbox with app control lacks a number of commands entered this spring software. We can mention ‘fireplace mode’ which ensures that overpressure is formed so that the stove does not switch on during firing. Supply, ventilate, night mode and party mode we have also added. If you have Blauberg vento wifi devices (v1 and v2) with their own software (Mqtt), then you can run all types of fans. That is, if you issue the command blauberg / set / fan / all / combine = s1r then all the fans will switch to speed1 and regeneration! There are a number of commands that are common to the fans. For example, you can make all the fans facing north go into one mode while all facing another direction or on another floor can go in another mode! In the event of a fire in the building, you can have all the fans ventilate and empty the building of air so that the fire is reduced. If you use air quality sensors then you can use these to control the fans so that if the outdoor air is heavily polluted (smoke, gas, etc.) then you can close all the fans on the side of the building in question. And if the indoor air is very bad, all the fans can be run on ventilation while you have a window or a door open, or run 50% of the fans on ventilation and 50% on supply! Freshbox can also then be run at full speed which gives the same effect. And on a hot summer day, you can get cooler air from the shady side of the house from the fans that are there. This will also relieve the AC system and save power. On cold winter days, the ERV models have the heating element that ensures preheating intake air so that the house does not cool down. But even then, the unit helps to relieve the heat pump so that it does not have to run at full capacity. The model for Nordic conditions, Freshbox E2-100 ERV also has a membrane which lets moisture through from the outside air so that the indoor air does not become so dry. This can prevent dry skin, cough etc.   Screenshots from HomeSeer control and monitoring screen below
