    Default EvoHome priorities

    I now have four ways to control my EvoHome, so never know why the temperature is where it is.

    There is:
    1. The EvoHome controller (pre-WiFi model, so no local override indicator)
    2. Local override
    3. Phone app
    4. IFTTT from HomeSeer on the PC

    It would take ages to work out which takes priority over which. Has anyone already done the research, or does anyone know of anything that explains it?

    The immediate questions I have are:
    If someone locally overrides, will the schedule stop working on that radiator? Or would IFTTT? Or the phone app?
    If I set a room permanently to 5 degrees, because we won't be using the room for a week or so, will IFTTT change it when I cancel a quick action? (it seems to, sometimes, but I cant work out the pattern)

    Have tried to find this with google, but without success

    Priority will always be the last one of the above to make a change, surely?

    Unless there is some logic built into the controller to differentiate local changes and remote requested changes, i would think the controller would simply deal with the changes as they hit the controller and the last instruction would stick.

    Pretty sure its simply a case of last action wins!

    That looks like a consensus, which is good news.

    So, every change that is made overrules everything previously set, wherever it came from. I had read that a local override remained even if a scheduled change came through, but having tried out the options, that doesn't seem to be true, so, it all now looks very simple.

    With one less thing to worry about, I can go back to reading about the singularity ... yikes!
