Hi Guys, In my open studio model I assign thermostat to Zones ( ideal load) , with the "set attribute tool" of the sketch up . Then neither in open studio inspector of sketch up, nor in Open studio software I do not see the thermostat object to edit it. Just I can define schedules for the heating and cooling thermostat in the Thermal zone tab of the open studio. Any idea why I do not see the thermostat in inspector( as shown in the attached picture)? and how can I edit a thermostat set points?!!! Thanks in advance

Open your model in the OpenStudio App, then navigate to the schedules tab and make heating and cooling setpoint schedules. Then switch to the thermal zones tab and drag+drop the schedule from your model library into the heating and cooling thermostat setpoint field for the zone.

See the workflow overview and tutorial videos. There is also a introductory textbook to energy modeling with OpenStudio that will answer many of your questions.

Thank you very much for your response. As I have seen many videos editing it in the inspector ( regarding previous versions) I had doubts Which one is the correct way to define the thermostat.
