    Might be worth using a fan heater - on the cold setting - just to redistribute the air around the room and mix things up a bit. Only needs to be a small one, and you could hide it away. Put it on a...

    I find that (even good quality) tape tends to go yellow and leave a hard dry coating when used close to a heat source.

    Horses for courses. I guess it depends on just how destructive the particular...

    A cable tie round the body might also work, and lot leave dried sticky if you want to remove it.

    Yeah, but Earth is there for safety. I wasn’t convinced that “there’s no alternative” was a good reason to use it for power.

    I also suspect the switches would be destroyed next time an electrical...

    I was never happy about how Den lights witches were wired. They used Earth as Neutral.

    Other manufacturers *could* do that, but they don't. For good reason.

    Or husband acceptance factor for one regular forum poster.

    That would only be true if you had HR92s on all of your rads (and an ABV).

    Without them, if you did as you've described, you'd have those rads coming on every time your hot water tank needed a...

    Den Automation has gone titsup

    According to The Register (who are usually right about these things), Den Automation has gone to the wall.

    It's a shame - the products had a lot going for them. But I'm not surprised. Wearing my...

    There's an option sensor that you can connect to the DHW incoming (I use it as I have a pre-heat tank). Perhaps it's that?

    Difficult to know because Intergas are a bit crap at exposing these...

    That's what wireshark is for!

    The bigger problem will be certificates. Assuming this stuff is properly secure. Which might not be a good assumption!

    Very interesting.

    That kit is REALLY useful if you have damp issues in your home. Also good for landlords to fit in rentals.

    Doesn't look like all of the products support this. Can't see...

    Wired directly to the boiler (instead of using feeds via the zone valves). And configured as boiler control on the controller. Normally with S Plan there's no boiler control (lots of people...

    That's why I mentioned traditional wiring!

    having the extra BDR91 makes a lot of sense. And also protects you from broken microswitches in the zone valves, which seems to be a regular thing.

    Don’t forget that a boiler won’t fire if the water flowing through it is already up to temperature.

    That always used to get me when I had an old iron boiler and a BDR91. There was power to the...

    Try moving the controller to a different place in the house - perhaps a bit closer to the boiler relay.

    Sounds like something is broadcasting on 868MHz at the same time every day. Neighbour's baby...

    You only get those options if you have direct boiler control.

    If you have an S or Y plan system wired in the 'traditional' manner (i.e. with the boiler being controlled by the microswitches in the...

    I'm not sure how this can be lost comms. The controller itself shows all zones at 0% but (last night) boiler demand of 11%. If it was lost comms HR92->controller then the zones wouldn't all show 0%,...

    If those batteries have been in for three years they are probably due for a change anyway.

    Check the battery in the hot water thermostat.

    We've seen cases reported here before where that seems to cause knock-on problems with other zones / relays / etc.

    Bear in mind that Evohome is no longer Honeywell.

    Resideo was spun off as a separate company.

    That will probably affect customer service. I'm not sure in which direction, but hopefully a...

    Looks American - talks about furnaces and cooling. I suspect this is for one of the North American products rather than Evohome, but it would be nice if I'm wrong!

    That's different to the example I've seen, where all the zones are zero percent but the controller still shows a boiler demand.

    In your example the controller doesn't turn the boiler on and off....

    I've seen that - all zones reporting 0% but the boiler demand with a higher percentage. It can sometimes take a minute or so for the controller to realise it should be sending 0% to the boiler. Maybe...
