    Hi Evo -user. I wondered whether for some reason your top floor TRVs were a different model from others you have and perhaps needed adaptors. By valve body I meant what's left on the radiator when...

    Are they mounted cleanly with the locking lever in place? Also are the valve bodies the same as are in zones which respond properly?

    Thank you Philchillbill and G4RHL, you've reassured me on the 868 front. I'm a bit put off further Evohome investment given HW's apparent disinterest in their existing customer base.

    Evohome and other wireless devices

    Hi
    Apart from the well noted unreliability of accessing Evohome remotely my system seems to be running very reliably. One of my concerns before installing was about signal reach but it has proved...

    Others here are way more expert than me but I don't understand your question in that I would expect Evo to call for heat if zone(s) are below setpoint. Apologies if I've misunderstood your question.

    Hi Anthony - not sure of your fuel source/ boiler cycles per hour etc but do you think this may be just the boiler dissipating heat through a bypass via pump overrun especially when all 6 valves...

    Yes the ability to access and monitor the system while away was a key feature that took me down the Evohome route. In fairness I've been lucky enough to find things operative on the occasions I've...

    Hi Woodburner - When I originally installed my UFH I too installed it as part of the radiator circuit. It worked yes but the benefit of Evo was negated in that it was awkward to target the heating....

    I confess I'm pretty much 'non-techy' but find DBMandrake's explanation of the wireless protocols absolutely compelling - thank you!

    Fingers crossed

    I've been critical in previous posts but credit where it's due,
    Evo has been performing pretty much according to my expectation for several months now. Apart from the odd drop out of remote login...

    Yes the app went through a brief phase of repeatedly chucking out my login credentials but has now become stable again, thankfully.

    This drives me nuts. I regularly rely on remote access to Evo and rejected Tado solely because it was server based. It seems I called it wrong. When it operates as billed it works for me perfectly.

    Thank you for the pointer to that study HenGus. It throws up yet more variables that apply in my case and makes meaningful comparison probably even more unreliable. For example these days, my system...

    Completely agree with rvb99. This is precisely the route we went with a single zone UFH - works flawlessly. Didn't even need an additional sensor as the Evotouch display was already sited there.
