    I've just bought a spare controller (with a broken screen, so I'm just going to pull it apart). My intention is to see how feasible it is to add an external 868MHz antenna. Or even a trailing wire of...

    If the MITM weather API is using “London” as the granularity then I can understand some of the problems!

    Hopefully it’s using postcodes (perhaps minus last two digits). I wonder how many of those...

    But there's no need for it to be different. My point is that the controller can use the same setup as the millions of apps out there.

    Well... yes and no. Weather apps seem to manage OK, and they poll directly.

    Another thought. Get the local Evohome controllers to poll Accuweather directly. Cut out the middle-man and the problems should go away.

    You can still control this centrally by pushing out the URL...

    There were big Internet outages today, worldwide.

    Level3/Centurylink (one on the big backbone providers) went titsup.

    It particularly affected transatlantic traffic.

    Or the temperature hasn't changed much over the past few hours.

    Lag is most visible during the earlier mornings and evenings. Less so at mid-day.

    Notifications are brilliant - the vast majority of people use them on their devices without any problems.

    Like I said, even when the heating is off the HR92s will cycle from time to time (monthly?) to stop the valves from seizing up.

    In a way it's going to be worse in the evenings when it's actually getting cold out there but Evohome thinks it's still early-afternoon temperatures.

    It'll save gas, of course, but only because...

    Even when off HR92s will cycle from time to time to stop the valve from sticking, and it probably uses less battery load to open a valve than it does to push it back down again (especially if the...

    Isn't that push switch for detecting whether the slide lock is open or closed?

    I have a thermal store but it's on the DHW feel to my combi, rather than on the heating side. It mops up solar export and means that I use no/less gas when having a shower or a bath.

    I don't let...

    I'd have thought you'd want the controllers on different floors (or different wings!!!!!) - keep each controller in the part of the property that it's looking after.

    I can't understand this being a UX problem - the option was (if I remember correctly) buried deep inside the installer menus, rather than being exposed to the great unwashed in the normal settings...

    Once it's proper summer I just use Off.

    But it feels wrong - the comfort temperatures set for the winter months should keep the heating off in summer anyway. My use of Off is more of an insurance...

    And even if you change it to measured temp it's a) to the nearest .5 degrees, and b) biased towards the setpoint rather than obeying normal rounding rules.
