    To a point. But ZigBee kit can be battery powered (for temperature sensors etc.) whereas Wi-Fi will usually need mains power (there are a few exceptions such as Cricket).

    You need to get past thinking about heating radiators up. Rather than applying overrides, adjust your schedule to get your rooms to be comfortable at the times you use them. That's how Evohome work...

    If the room wasn't losing heat and it was within 0.2C of setpoint then no thermal input is required.

    What were the domoticz measured room temps at the 30m and 60m points? Was it cooling or staying constant?

    I use Smappee for monitoring my gas meter. But the gas monitor only works in conjunction with the electricity monitor.

    Also, they seems to be going more upmarket, with installer based products,...

    Same here. Their servers or connectivity (hard to know which) has been up and down several times this evening.

    I know my internet connection has been rock solid during this period because there's...

    I have an older Intergas boiler and don't see anything even remotely like this behaviour. Something is very wrong with your setup - it shouldn't be doing that, and it isn't doing that by design.

    I've just bought a spare controller (with a broken screen, so I'm just going to pull it apart). My intention is to see how feasible it is to add an external 868MHz antenna. Or even a trailing wire of...

    If the MITM weather API is using “London” as the granularity then I can understand some of the problems!

    Hopefully it’s using postcodes (perhaps minus last two digits). I wonder how many of those...

    But there's no need for it to be different. My point is that the controller can use the same setup as the millions of apps out there.

    Well... yes and no. Weather apps seem to manage OK, and they poll directly.

    Another thought. Get the local Evohome controllers to poll Accuweather directly. Cut out the middle-man and the problems should go away.

    You can still control this centrally by pushing out the URL...

    There were big Internet outages today, worldwide.

    Level3/Centurylink (one on the big backbone providers) went titsup.

    It particularly affected transatlantic traffic.

    Or the temperature hasn't changed much over the past few hours.

    Lag is most visible during the earlier mornings and evenings. Less so at mid-day.

    In a way it's going to be worse in the evenings when it's actually getting cold out there but Evohome thinks it's still early-afternoon temperatures.

    It'll save gas, of course, but only because...

    Even when off HR92s will cycle from time to time to stop the valve from sticking, and it probably uses less battery load to open a valve than it does to push it back down again (especially if the...
