    Hi,

    Unfortunately I think you're unlikely to find any information which clearly indicates compatibility and Glow Worm don't officially support Opentherm. Even with my Ultracom2 I had to just rely...

    I think Paul's correct about S4. Google came up with this Dutch manual which labels S4 as the 'Cold water sensor' i.e. flow-in from a pre-heater (Solar Water Heater in this example)....

    Yes, just using the HR92s should work OK. I use 16 of the HR92s split into 12 zones without any additional thermostats etc and they work perfectly.

    Hi Richard,

    I've had a quick search and found a few pictures of the card from your boiler and it's not the same as the one in my Ultracom2. The pictures I found look almost identical to the card...

    Thanks for highlighting this work in Home Assistant. It's been a while since I looked at it and it's great to see that there are plans to add HGI80 support. I'm going to reach out to the developer...

    A partial solution to Phase 4 which you may already be aware of is the 'Nefit EMS-OT OpenTherm converter' described on this page:

    My preference would be to retain the Honeywell controller which would still handle system set-up and the background system control, and add a device with neater interface for monitoring and control. ...

    Yes, that's correct. The heat demand isn't available via the API, only via one of the controller menus or using a HGI80 type device to monitor the Evohome wireless messages.

    No, not via Evohome as it only tells you what it has asked the boiler to do, but not the actual boiler status. It is possible to monitor some boilers remotely via Opentherm or other serial...

    The only comments I can add are that my experiences with the use of the Evohome controller as a room temperature sensor have been positive. You also have the option to use the temperature sensors...

    I don't think these 40min no heat periods will mess up the Evohome controller's 'fuzzy logic' heating optimisation algorithm. My confidence is due to the fact that even with standard gas boilers...

    Thanks for the additional info on how the 40min periods are spread throughout the day. I'd wrongly guessed that more of them would be grouped together near times if highest demand e.g evening. I...

    I was thinking that the room temperature might drop during some of the 40min periods so that you notice it feeling cooler. If this happens you could increase the setpoint by 0.5deg to keep the room...

    I think the controller will work OK and the 40min periods won't cause it problems. It's a shame that the Evohome 6 setpoint daily limit isn't enough for your setup. I find the Evohome system works...

    I think I may have misunderstood exactly what you wanted the Evohome system to do.

    Good idea, but no, the 3 bytes at the end of these shorter 7 byte messages always seem to be FFFFFF. The timed overrides are sent in longer 13 byte messages using the same command 0x2349. Most of...
