Hi Juha,
in our house we can read with ETS3 the temperature outside and inside:

  • outside: Merten knx weather station 2420/1.2; we use the knx command 5/0/1 (5/0/2 for wind, 5/0/3 for Rain)
  • inside: Gewiss Chorus Thermostat 14791; we use the command 4/0/4

In ETS3 all this are 2 byte command, 9.001 Degrees Celsius.

How can I do with the OR Designer to read the two temperature ?

I read some post, but I don't undestood....sorry

Good news: My controller works fine


Just create a KNX command with DPT 9.001 and command "status".
Then use a custom sensor. That should give you the value eg. "21.1" as string.

Great, done... it works

Can I try also with:

  • lux sensor (9.004 lux) ?
  • wind speed (9.005 m/s) ?

I think it's in already. Either you can try the concrete DPT's (9.004 and 9.005) or you try also with 9.001 since they are also 2 byte values.

I tried with 9.001, (with 9.004 the controller don't work and give me error)

I created a command status 9.001.
In the custom sensor:
I can use the name "Wind" or "Speed" ?
It's correct the value eg. "20.99" ?

Thanks Markus

You can verify your value in ETS to see if the "20.99" matches your Wind speed.
The name in the sensor does not matter.
