    Coincidentally I started thinking about this exact same thing a couple of weeks ago. I decided to over-engineer a solution in true home automation geek-style. I am now testing a SmartThings webCoRE...

    D'oh! I could've told you that - I have one left over from a set that came with an HC60NG. I have reversed the temperature dial so as it appears to be blank, and used the locking pins so as it can't...

    From my observations I think the noise problem is mainly to do with the type of radiator and how it's fitted to the wall. The motor noise is amplified when attached to the valve. On newer radiators...

    I'm still finding them very noisy, but I have to admit that I'm now in my third winter with Evohome and have mostly got used to them. I've removed my convoluted silencing method and left the HR92s in...

    This is my plan. Is it bad I've gone to this much detail? Probably a side effect of being a PC Pro subscriber :)

    I should have also added a question: do you think it's safe to use to control a 1.5KW electric underfloor heating mat? I spoke to Richard @ TheEvohomeShop which is where I purchased this, and he...

    HC60NG now reduced to 6.5A

    Does anyone know why Honeywell have reduced the maximum rating of the HC60NG from 10A to 6.5A? It still has a 16A relay onboard.

    I've attached a photo - does anyone have an older 10A rated...

    Just to say that I have low battery notifications working great using HGI80/Domoticz/IFTTT. The HR92 'relay' devices are added as switches, and my low battery warning is set to 10% in settings. I...

    Evohome + Electric Underfloor

    Has anyone tried the new Electric Heating zone option in the controller yet? I'm just wondering if it works ok, i.e. doesn't fire the boiler when there's heat demand from that zone and only operates...

    Hi - could you recommend a specific grease I could use on the gears please without breaking things? There seems to be some discussion over whether to use lithium or silicone-based products and using...

    Yup, but it's not mounted on a metal box, the metal box hasn't been used for anything other than popping out a small round metal disc about the same size as a 10p coin (only thinner) - I was just...

    That was just to show what I meant by steel back box. I used a metal disk that I popped out from one of those back boxes in order to give the HR92 a large surface area to push against. Without that,...

    I'm normally a silent forum member, but thought I'd share my Evohome noise reducing experiment with you. Advance warning - this is probably over-engineered!

    I've concluded that most of the noise I...
