    On the international website, I can't log out, so I assume I'll have problems logging in if I need to do so later today.

    Thanks for this tip. The app had been failing to show any of my zones for the last few days (endless 'loading' icon), but your suggestion worked.

    I use a similar approach to deal with heating for one-off bookings at our scout hut over the weekend. We already have a calendar for tracking who is in there, so I use the entries to trigger the...

    Oooh, this is getting better! The options for Google Calendar are better on Stringify than IFTTT. Google Calendar in IFTTT can trigger an action at the time an event starts, but I have long wanted to...

    Thanks, dty. That's what I was asking about: whether anyone had worked out how to use the Stringify Service on IFTTT. I'd tried this, but couldn't figure out how to make it work.

    I persevered...

    Mavis, thanks. I see how I do a Stringify "flow" (=applet) to create a calendar entry of "chilly" if it is Thursday, 6am and the temperature is below -2. So, I then create an IFTTT applet to check...

    Stringify and Evohome vs IFTTT

    IFTTT is great, but quite limited. I'd like to set an IFTTT applet (previously called a recipe) that triggers an Evohome quick action to turn on the heating whenever the outside temperature falls...

    Of course, Heat Genius also offers competition to Evohome, but it seems to get very little mention on this forum. I'm not sure if this is because there is anything in particular wrong with Heat...

    I'll also be interested to hear how they compare in practice. Having installed Evohome in a scout meeting hall a year ago, I've been wondering about it for my own home, but Tado now seems to be a...

    I go for Amazon Performance alkalines, because they claim 10 year anti-leakage. Not that alkalines often leak, but if a battery leaks, that's a 50 valve ruined, so I'd rather minimise the risk....

    Think I might stick with the existing app, as I'm not going to use the security system, so the other changes seem detrimental, on balance.

    Now I'm puzzled. I set Away at 1.30pm on 15 Dec for 2 days, so I expected it to finish at midnight last night, but it was still going this morning. So perhaps it would have run until 1.30pm today?...

    If they really want to penetrate the market, they should have a fixed price install at a bargain price, using genuinely competent installers. If they had to subsidise this a little, I would think it...

    Wow, I don't blame you for going DIY.

    Looking a bit more closely at the quote I had, I reckon it is no more than 100 on top of the price if I had bought the gear from Evohome shop. So, he must...

    The quick action had finished at 7am this morning, when I woke. So I think Mavis is right that all days end at midnight.

    If the Honeywell reps can add this to the wish list, it would be helpful to...

    Great idea! Of course it won't stop someone who can be bothered to buy the right screw driver, but it will stop anyone who isn't very determined.

    I did a test and did a recipe to switch it to Away from 2pm today, for 3 hours. So it should have finished at 5pm, but it didn't. It is still saying Away Active until 15 Dec.

    So, looks like it...

    You can pay less than 75p per lithium. http://www.battery-force.co.uk/detail_PHFR6Y004A.html At that price, the decision is a bit more finely balanced, given that they might last considerably longer...

    I agree about minimising replacements, though. Lithium might be best. They can last 7 years in a smoke alarm, so might last a lot longer than 2 years in an Evohome device.

    They are both rare, but I don't think the chances are equally miniscule. Exploding Lithiums are freak occurences. Leaking Alkalines are fairly common. I'm not saying that most of them leak, but even...

    Actually, having looked into this a bit more, I'm thinking alkalines should be avoided altogether, because they tend to leak. (Source: http://michaelbluejay.com/batteries/disposable.html) That would...
