    Default Random Niggly Issues

    Now the novelty has worn off with my Evohome and as G4RHL has pointed out, I leave my Evo to get on with things and it ‘just works’. I have had a couple of niggly random issues.

    All my radiators are set to go to 10c at 22.30.


    Last week my bedroom radiator somehow was overridden to 20 degrees and was on all night. I cancelled it on the main controller when I got up (before the next setpoint.) I do recall that when I drew the curtains going to bed and tucked them behind the radiator that the rad was warm (but not hot) which was unusual as opt stop has usually kicked in and they are generally cold.
    Earlier in the evening (around 19.00) I boosted the sitting room by 1 degree on the app but cancelled it again around 21.30. I didn’t touch the app or controller after that.
    Hubby swears blind that he did not touch anything – I do believe him as he would rather just moan that he is cold rather than touch any technology.

    Second niggle was this morning. I boosted the bathroom rad manually and cranked it up to 22c. It worked ok but when I checked after a few minutes the override symbol was not showing on the HR92. I checked the controller and that was fine – it did show the override.

    Do you have a Wi-Fi Evotouch that shows HR92 local overrides on the controller ?

    If so what you describe is normal behaviour. When you first make an adjustment on the HR92 it is a "local override" which shows the override icon on the HR92. The override is sent to the controller and appears as a timed zone override.

    After a few minutes the controller sends a set point change for the new temperature to all the HR92's in the zone - including the original one that made the override. When the original HR92 receives this set point update this cancels the local override but maintains the temperature - it is no longer a "local override", it's now a zone override so the local override icon is extinguished. (Any set point update sent from the controller cancels the local override icon on an HR92)

    Yes it is the Wifi version I upgraded in the recent upgrade offer. That explains why when I tried to replicate it I couldn't - because I was not waiting long enough ie longer than the 'up to 4 minutes'.

    Mavis, any problems with your iPhone making contact? Since the last upgrade to the app, and possibly if there has been one to the Panel, my iPhone (and iPad) often tell me there is no internet connection when there is and the Panel says it has a good wifi connection. Have to exit the app, go back in again. Perhaps I should delete it and reinstall.

    No, no problems with my iPhone. I secretly boost the sitting room every night by 1 degree with my phone and I have no problems. That is on wifi though. I haven't tried outside the house.

    I hove no problems with the signal to the controller either. The only problem I have is with the power when I occasionally take it off its stand. I must remember to do the battery thing regularly.

    I had a new boiler installed a couple of weeks ago (by the same company that installed my Evohome) and didn't even need to do any resetting because of that.

    �� Hubby moans that he is cold during the day (when I am at work) but won't learn how to use Evo. I tell him it is not cold then whip my phone out when he is not looking and heat the room I am in. ��

    This happened again. On Sunday morning I checked at around 10am and the controller showed the overide symbol for the bedroom and it was set for 20c - i am not sure for how long though?

    Edit - just checked my SmartThings log and it is showing 10.09am when the temp was overridden - nowhere near any setpoint. I will have to keep a close eye.

    Sure hubby hasn't secretly figured it out, but prefers "the system" to take the fall for "randomly heating the room'

    I think I saw a random override the other day too. Just thought I'd probably messed something up, bit now seeing this I'm less convinced.
