    A good experienced installer can save a lot of teething problems. Unfortunately the forum has less activity in the summer months so you may have to wait longer for a recommendation. You could try and...

    This is how we use our ImmerSun diverter. It works independently from the EvoHome without problems.

    I believe the MyEnergi Eddi and Zappi have settings that can prioritise where spare Solar is...

    Most of my water heating is done by sola with the EvoHome HW not used for several days at times, so presumably, the message rate is low. This would explain why I have traditionally had several loss...

    I had fully agreed that batteries had nothing to do with the comms problems, which I had quite regularly even with fresh batteries. However when I changed the batteries a few months ago, I took the...

    The other benefit of using a mains powered device is not having to worry about leaking batteries. Over the years, I have had several devices damaged by leaking batteries. Price and manufacturer has...

    Same for me, I use the app to setup or amend schedules and the Evotouch for most everything else. The app can also be useful if we are away for an indeterminate period and want to put the heating...

    While I am sure EvoHome has given us some savings on gas, I doubt that it is enough to cover the cost of the system in a well insulated property. The big benefit of EvoHome for us is the increase in...

    I agree with your sentiment, but unfortunately Resideo are not the only ones to suffer poor reliability. While it is irritating when my central heating cannot be remote controlled, this is nothing...

    Sorry meant in jest but smiley did not work. Keep up the good work. I would prefer the added functionality via an app rather than Alexa, but your ideas look good.

    I think the Evotouch has limits on processing and memory. Maybe extra functionality could be provided via the Honeywell Home app? That said Honeywell/Resideo are not noted for rapid inovation.

    We used to get notification of planned server outages, but I have not seen one for the last couple of years. May be a coincidence but, I think things have gone down hill a bit since Resideo was spun...

    Our hot water has been working sort of okay for years. It did frequently report a loss of comms, but this has only happened once since I changed the batteries about 8 months ago and was reset by...

    Sounds as if it would be more useful than the current skill, which I found of very limited use.

    Regular batteries are not the same voltage as rechargeables so could give you problems. Do not put the controller on a powered mount while using them. Do you have a test meter to check that power is...
