    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...

    Skills can indeed be written in Python and can include libraries zipped into the upload package. However, the skill (running as an elastic linux lambda function in the cloud) needs to talk to a https...

    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...

    Wow, works really nicely - well done and thanks! I'm guessing that your use of the async pyserial library is making a big difference here. I had very mixed results using DanD's schedule backup/resume...

    I got this set up on a nanoCUL so that my HGI-80 can stay dedicated to Domoticz - nice toy :cool: How exactly do you 'pull' the zone schedule with this?

    That does actually work with the en-US version of the Alexa skill for TCC but not with the en-GB version TCC International skill. Go figure.

    Ok, thanks. If you want somebody to test the shared access, let me know. I want to run the DanD Python script that queries/changes the Evohome schedule over RF and things go wrong when Domoticz...

    If I were to run evohome_rf with my hgi80, does it have to have exclusive access to the hgi80 or would it be OK to have Domoticz also butting in from time to time with its own serial access to the...

    I have it all working for 2 years already and I'd say 99% reliably.

    I regularly manage about 16 switchpoints/day for one of my zones. A python script on a 10 minute cron checks Google Calendar for...

    Alexa does not concern herself with actuators. She just passes JSON back and forth with no retries - if the command is not confirmed then it's "Sorry, *whatever* is not responding" and it's up to the...

    Actually, there is a cancel possibility - revert to normal schedule. A skill can keep a copy of the normal unedited schedule which can be applied in full at will. It's possible to have multiple named...

    Sure that would work. But the advantage of doing it via schedule-edit is that looking at the Evotouch or the phone App will show what a user 'normally' sees as a control paradigm without having to...

    Well, yes - it's effectively a temporary override but it does not start now so the only way to effect it is by changing the schedule. You are correct that the schedule then needs to be reverted. My...

    Where I would envisage using it is with schedule pull-forward or delay. For example, "Alexa, delay bedtime by 30 mins" would move all the scheduled switchpoints to a later time if e.g. I wanted to...

    I wonder if it would be possible to support schedule save/retrieve at least via the JSON API if not graphically? Or are the GUI and JSON in Domoticz too interwoven? I have it the other way around,...

    I use nodejs and Python because Alexa skills use Amazon's Lambda compute environment and all the example code snippets are for those 2 languages. Plus, Lambda has resources aplenty.
