    EvoControl is now fully translated into German — the website at https://smartskills.tech/evocontrol shows screenshots and example commands in German as well as English.

    I've opened a new beta...
  2. Amazon automatically kills all beta programmes...

    Amazon automatically kills all beta programmes after 90 days so the beta for EvoControl will end within the next 2 weeks. Many thanks to those who participated ! Please make sure the schedule data...

    EvoControl now handles multiple locations. :D Upon first-run (or whenever you use the update-configuration command), all locations returned by TCC are 'discovered'.
    Schedule 'A' automatic backup...

    I'm at a point where it would be pretty easy to add support for multiple locations but I'd need a beta tester for that. Any volunteers?
  5. I've rewritten the code around...

    I've rewritten the code around configuration-updating and scenes/activities so if you rename zones your scenes will not be messed up.
  6. Fuzzy matching

    EvoControl uses the Fuse.js fuzzy-matching library to match your zone names as spelled for TCC against Alexa's expected spelling thereof.

    Not unexpectedly, Alexa can't get around homophones ...

    Fixed a bug introduced a week or so ago that was causing regular 429 rate limit exceeded errors with TCC :o Should be back to normal now.
  8. DHW is now supported

    There's now full support for DHW in EvoControl :cool: Some example commands:

    Turn off Hot Water
    Turn on Hot Water for 20 mins
    Turn on Hot Water at 5PM for 45mins [adds a switchpoint]
    Turn on...

    When an until is set for dhw, it is { "dhw": "stateStatus": { "state": "On|Off", "mode": "TemporaryOverride", "until": "2022-04-16T16:00:00Z" } or does it use timeUntil like the system mode does for...

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I don't have DHW as I have a combi.

    It can only be turned on/off, right? You can retrieve what its current actual temperature is but not set a particular...

    Beta testers should note a few changes:


    Activities now retain their numbering/order whenever new activities are defined
    There are new buttons for Show Activities (Film-roll icon) and Help (?...

    Funny thing is, the API works as expected. If you set a zone to a particular setpoint, it just does it regardless of system mode and any offsets. So it's indeed a firmware bug in the Evotouch.

    Beta testers should note a few changes:


    There is now a rotating/random 'hints' footer on the main dashboard that appears by default on larger rectangular Echo Shows. These have the form "Try:...

    Just found this old thread again. Take a look at https://smartskills.tech/evocontrol. The demo videos show how all of this was made to work via a combination of TCC cloud and schedule/activity backup...

    I'm in the process of adding support for multiple locations in EvoControl, whereby you can say the likes of 'List my locations' and 'Select location N' (only if you have >1 location).

    Does...

    Is it possible with the standard TCC Alexa skill to specify an until/duration for overrides (e.g. 'Alexa, set the Bedroom to 20 deg for 30 minutes')? I've never actually used the official TCC skill...

    Beta testers should note a few changes:


    You can now assign names to Schedules ABC via the settings screen. For new linkers, schedule A is assigned the nickname 'Normal'.
    When you have more...

    Extremely unlikely. There's only a handful of beta testers and with the recent nice weather they haven't been very actively testing.

    1923

    Support for named Scenes/Activities. The basic idea is to change a group of zones with a single command. Examples: Watch TV, BedTime, etc.

    It's already been done in the EvoControl Alexa...
  20. New: EvoControl adds Scenes/Activities to Evohome

    EvoControl has been extended to support the notion of Scenes/Activities. Basically, with a single voice command, groups of zones can have their setpoints all changed at the same time. Examples...

    Some testers reported difficulty invoking the skill so I've changed the invocation to just two words: "Evo Control". Hopefully that won't break anybody who was not having difficulty — if so then...
  22. I have a fork of the new EvoControl Alexa skill...

    I have a fork of the new EvoControl Alexa skill working via RF/Domoticz. Bummer is that schedules aren't supported via that route.
  23. The principle behind all my skills is to use data...

    The principle behind all my skills is to use data on an as-needed basis and either not store it at all (if possible) or to encrypt it strongly when I must store it. Almost all the data this skill...

    I've removed the redundant back button on the main Dashboard view.
    The settings cog is now still quite opaque but is changed to bluish instead of grayish (it is intended to be discreet so not full...
  25. For anybody with trouble invoking the skill:...

    For anybody with trouble invoking the skill: 'EvoControl' is a contrived word and Alexa has problems with those. Also, skills are supposed to have at least 2 words for invocation so we think we're...
