Online status of Venstar thermostat

Fri Feb 17, 2017 12:18 am

I noticed that the Venstar driver was constantly emitting a message saying "Failed to get status from the thermostat. Is it online?" And indeed a thermostat was offline. However...

1. It would be nice if the message said *which* thermostat is offline.

2. {{climate_6_status}} has the value "Online". This does make it hard report on an offline thermostat from scenes.

There appears to have been an attempt to address this in the latest version of the driver? What I am seeing is...

climate_x_status is no longer kept/updated. Which is fine.

climate_x_offline is set to 0 if the thermostat is online. Which is fine.

However, climate_x_offline isn't touched at all if the thermostat is offline.
