    I’d always recommend using OpenTherm if you can, sounds like your installer is not familiar with its benefits.

    Iíd vote for Intergas too, I fitted one in my last house. Or an Atag.

    Iíve inherited a Vokera in my new house. Out of the box it would default to 80C max flow temperature, so Iíve used an OTGW...

    Sounds like this is DHW preheat, have you tried setting it to Eco?

    Here are all the types of requests seen by my OTGW. You can see there are a bunch of them with a period of around 1m45s.

    The DHW ones are odd, because Evohome doesn't distinguish...

    Great. Might be useful to understand typical electricity consumption/costs too.

    Bruce, how often does the Evohome controller communicate with the OTB? Maybe that frequency has changed and that influences how often the OTB reads boiler parameters. There are several other...

    From my previous house with Intergas boiler. The Intergas boiler returns fractional temperatures, its sensor was very accurate according to my Netatmo weather station.

    Yes, that's right, approximately every 1m 45s. It's not OTGW initiated, it is coming from the OTB (T for Thermostat, B for Boiler):

    It's worked well for me in both a radiator and now a UFH setup. I can hardly believe that the previous owner of my house had the UFH TMV set to 75C with a boiler temperature of 70C. Now, in this...

    Stick an OTGW between the OTB and VR33? That should tell you whether the Domoticz->HGI80->OTB path is working, returning the same value.

    We know OTB->Boiler->Outdoor sensor works. The OTB...

    Yes, this initially confused me as well. A 10C request is used by Evohome to signify off, but by default, if CH Enable is on, it will be interpreted by my boiler just like any other request below...

    I think it’s displaying the flow temperature request (control setpoint).

    So if your current flow temperature exceeds this temperature, the boiler remains off but may continue to pump/overrun for...

    So it turns out, after all that, that floor heating mode doesn’t work very well for my setup.

    In this mode the boiler appears to reduce its hysteresis from +5/-5 to +2/-2C.

    What this means,...

    Maybe they changed the firmware, my Nest V2 never pulsed, just appeared to stay off far too long. OpenTherm will improve matters if your boiler is compatible.

    Conveniently the OTGW has 4 pins above...

    What’s worked for me in the past is to go to the mytotalconnect web interface, delete your location and add it again. I think that resyncs.

    I think rebooting your controller by pushing the batteries apart should remove the phantom zone.

    I learned that my boiler’s floor heating jumper tag setting is actually dynamically read.

    If the jumper is inserted, OpenTherm will switch from a 40-80C range to 20-45C.

    So, I’m going to...
