    For the benefit of anyone else trying to do this, I found the way to do it, having come across what seems to be the latest (2020) version of the Installer Manual, here:...

    Thanks, yes, I'm in the installer menu. The old HR92 is dead, so I can't unbind it directly. Perhaps I need to do an RF check and then there will be an option to add a device. But if you are able to...

    Replacing an Evohome HR92

    Could a kind soul give me a steer as to how to replace an existing HR92 in my system? The original installation and set up was done by an engineer who is no longer available.

    I have fitted the new...

    The attraction is that they don’t leak. You raise lots of benefits of alkalines, but if they write off a 60 device every few years, that’s a major detriment.

    Having said that, I notice that...

    Some good points. I had a look at Energizer Lithium and the Ultimate are guaranteed against leakage. If they leak, they replace your device. I think this might be the way to go.
    Edit: they are only...

    Which is what I would have said, six months ago. Alkalines don't leak frequently, but it only takes once to write off a 60 TRV.

    I've has two types leak. Duracell Pro and Amazon (supposedly leakproof). I'm switching to using rechargeable, as they very rarely leak.

    Don't throw out faulty Evohome HR92s

    I was amazed to see that faulty Evohome HR92 TRVs do successfully sell on eBay, listed as "for parts or not working". I just sold one which is dead after a battery leak.

    So, if you prefer not to...

    I agree, although I also find that sometimes my Technoline charger rejects certain batteries if they are completely drained (eg, all their charge is used and then they sit in that state and...

    I've just had to scrap a HR92, due to a leaky alkaline. Completely dead, even after I tried to clean the contacts. So, I'm done with alkalines. These were Amazon own brand, which claim to be leak...

    Just an update, in case anyone has the same objective.

    Stringify has discontinued. IFTTT has, however, gained the ability to trigger an action 45 minutes before a Google Calendar event starts, so...

    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...

    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...

    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?...
