    Indeed yes. I just confused the issue by talking about another project that has no relation to this. In that one, you're correct that I only need web interface access.





    So yes, monitoring...

    I'm an inveterate tinkerer and love writing code to do cool but unnecessary things. I'm currently (among other projects) working on an Android app to allow multiple different schedules to be loaded...

    It would be really nice if Honeywell were to expose the web API and make it more functional so that 3rd party tools like Domoticz could add value. This would greatly improve the product by...

    I put my minimum burn time up to 5 minutes and the anti-cycle timer on 10 mins. The shorter cycle was just not working as effectively. I'd rather have a 0.5 degree overshoot than a 0.5 degree...

    This is almost exactly what I have done. I've set heating partial load to a little more than the maximum of all my radiators open at once, D.018 to comfort, D.014 to 100% (thanks @mtmcgavock - this...

    Yes, this is exactly what I do. My conservatory was re-purposed as a dining room, so I do need to use it. However, the central heating struggles to heat it even to 15 degrees in this weather and the...

    While electric heaters are 100% efficient, the price disparity between mains gas and electricity means that, no matter what, it's going to be more expensive to heat with electricity.

    Assume a 2kw...

    I do. Two towel radiators and one in the dressing room that I've opened to max to allow for some heat dumping to prevent anti-cycling.

    Surely closing these rads off would make the system go into...

    Hmm, you're right. I didn't think that this was perhaps an imperial size radiator I have in the hallway. All the others are metric. Looking at the sizes in this chart it appears to be a 37 inch. That...

    I plan to try this, but my landlord is pretty unreasonable. When I moved in here there was absolutely no heating control at all. No timer on the boiler, no thermostat.

    I proposed to the landlord...

    Yes, I turned Evohome back to its normal set point. It only anti-cycles, and infrequently, when the rest of the zones are up to temperature and there is only one rad open. It's a big improvement.

    Ok, so it's still anti-cycling, but not nearly as much as before, so that seems to be an improvement, although when the weather gets warmer I suspect it might anti-cycle more frequently.

    I was initially reluctant to try this as it took me so long to balance the rads. That said, I've now done as you suggest (although I have not touched the bypass). It's only been running a few hours,...

    Thanks both of you. I took the sensor and put it outside and the temperature of the zone dropped like a stone. It also controls the set point of the zone, so I guess it's bound properly.

    Because I'll still have the same problem and be out of pocket by a few thousand pounds. Intergas boilers all have minimum heat outputs in the 7kw - 8kw range, which is even higher than my existing...

    No. The Vaillant doesn't play nicely either. I've just got the BDR91 wired directly into the boiler at the moment. Apparently using the OT interface sold in the Netherlands will void the warranty on...

    Thanks Bruce. Yes, I've done that already - it's set to 12kw, but still the problem comes in when only one rad calls for heat. Since the minimum heat output is 6kw on my boiler, it's way too high for...

    T87RF Zone Identification

    Is there a way, like with the HR91 and HR92, where you can press a button and a message pops up on the evohome touch panel telling you what zone it's in, to identify the zone binding of a T87RF round...
