    Rechargeable (even low self-discharge NiMH) will need charging every 3 months. I had 2450mAH Eneloops in use and they drove me mad. Also, the battery clip is crap in the HR92 so you will eventually...

    New Domoticz skill also queries Evohome in a useful manner

    Today I published a free custom Alexa skill for Domoticz called StateReport that has a few commands that are useful with Evohome. It's described at...

    Correct, but if IKEA thinks this is a good idea then other will follow. When Apple introduced white earbuds, we suddenly all had white earbuds. When they introduced the notch, all phones adopted...

    A year ago I thought I'd do the environment a favour and switched to IKEA rechargeable 2450mAh AA's in all my HR92s. These are excellent quality for the price and are reported to be Sanyo Eneloops...

    Won't the warm floor continue to heat the room even when the circulation stops? It represents a gigantic mass containing substantial heat (vs a small mass at a higher temperature = a radiator). Sure...

    Yes, that's correct.



    Yes, the boiler-BDR91 responds to heat demand, as always.



    You should not need the motorised valve. The UFH manifold is designed in such a way that water circulating...

    I'm using a nanoCUL for this testing - my 'real' HGI80 is reserved for Domoticz. I'll re-try with the latest code after XMAS.

    Just curious why the evohome_Rf library cannot write schedules. IS...

    I see a major refactor in the --get-schedule code is mentioned for the bleeding-edge branch. Any pointers on how to use it now? It seems to no longer accept (need?) --device-id.

    Interesting that the parameter naming in the JSON as returned would depend on the API key used. One would expect that the parameter values rather than the parameter names might be what's different....

    Can you divulge the source of your new API key? Is Resideo issuing them to developers (again)?

    Funny thing is, Boiler Modulation has not been updated for me since Oct 1st while e.g. Fault Logging was updated on December 1st with a Low Batt warning. I'm on 19.33. I have a long delay set in...

    Maybe first check that the pin on the TRV body hasn't become stiff, requiring more torque and hence noise to operate

    I have some switches in Domoticz that implement a timed temperature boost in certain zones by requesting a setpoint of 22 deg with a TemporaryOverride with an until-time calculated at 20 mins from...

    The danger in showing a faked value for a 'current' temperature that the system will take 30 mins to reach is that a different house member may see the faked temperature and adjust back downwards...

    It's a quirk. Bumping the setpoint by 0.5 deg is useless as the controller just magically reports a current temp rounded up to the next half degree after you make the setpoint change. Magnificent UI...

    See this video for an explanation. The 2nd L terminal is just for if you need to switch a 230V device instead of a 24V one.

    You have a typo that repeats turn on twice instead of mentioning on/off, but yes that's the idea. When you bind a BDR91 to the Evotouch, you can designate it either as a boiler relay or as a zone...

    You would use 2 separate BDR91s - one for the boiler and one for the UFH pump. The BDR is just a relay. In the case of the boiler, it switches 24V to a relay somewhere inside your boiler. For your...

    To control the pump, all you need is a BDR91. No need for the HCE80. You can bind that BDR91 as a zone controller to the Evotouch and when there is heat demand for the zone it will simply turn the...

    You should first ask yourself if you want to try and control your hall/livingroom/kitchen separately or if you realistically just treat it all as one big zone if it's open-plan vs separate walled-off...

    Many, many thanks are due to the both of you for getting this all working so well.

    I'm going to have a look at your QoS stuff and see if I can apply it in some way to Dan's code. I want schedule...
