    Default evohome Wi-FI FW releases

    Hi All

    We now have more info to share around the release of future FW updates for evohome Wi-Fi units.

    Software 02.00.11.21 & Wi-Fi 02.00.11.00
    This is being released now. It is in our production units from the factory and will be pushed out over the next few days via our deployment systems. Users shouldn't have to do anything as this will be a fully automated update
    - Hot water boost function (if you have Stored HW)
    - Icon change on Hot water
    - Wi-Fi channels 12/13 fix
    - Ghost zone fix (for users that still had it)
    - General security and maintenance fixes

    Next version (due ASAP)
    This is a small update for the Wi-Fi FW and provides an addition security fix to negate the Krack security issue.

    Next version (still aiming for end of year/ early Jan - all subject to continued testing)
    Additional functional improvements
    - Heat demand per zone is indicated
    - Electric zone support
    - Outside weather display
    - Plus other maintenance and security improvements

    I second that. Looking forward to that January update.

    Perhaps keep this thread as the place to officially announce firmware updates in the future ?

    That's very helpful - thanks. Hopefully, the greater openness will continue - I'm sure it gives folks more confidence in the product.

    Once electric zone support and heat demand are added I will seriously consider upgrading to the WiFi model... Currently on the non-WiFi with RFG100 gateway.

    That's exactly what I wouldn't want to do, after I bought the original EvoHome (along with another Ä100 for the RFG100) as being able of updates that never came.

    Not cheap a system, not impressed by customer support (see my past threads). This is not going to impress me as a marketing move to convince me giving Honeywell another Ä250 to dump my working units.

    I might take into consideration an upgrade when (and if) either my controller or the RFG100 stops working. Whoopps! I might have given some bad idea out to Honeywell marketing...

    Just not to be missing something, are there plans to add features to the non-WIFI units? They do have a nice USB port...

    When was it ever sold as being update-able?

    Don't want to start flames but I remember discussing such things on this forum as well. At the time, updates were passed to the RFG100.

    Even today you could find such information, e.g. here:

    https://ensupport.getconnected.honey...e-with-gateway

    And the technique of pushing updates on newer models to stimulate users to get rid of working devices and buy new ones is not an isolated case... can you name a very well known Korean smartphone manufacturer that's famous for this...?

    It says so in the User Manual for the original monochrome controller and I for one feel cheated by the fact that no updates have ever been released.
