    I'm gutted

    After all my effort getting everything set up and working (though the bedroom HR92 that I'd most expected to have comms issues did report an issue), my wife came home and doesn't like the HR92s at all, insisted I remove them and replace the old TRVs, which I've done and deleted all the zones from the wireless controller. So I have a set of 5 barely used HR92s if anyone is interested?

    There's no accounting for some people's thinking, especially when they believe that thermostats don't work and are a waste of time, but, c'est la vie.

    So I'm back to a wireless thermostat/controller that will control the boiler but the iOS app still reports the zones I'd previously configured and even pressing the refresh button on the menu makes no difference. I tried deleting the app and data and re-installing it but to no avail.

    Does the app work with just one zone/the controller as a thermostat?

    EDIT: I've worked it out - just needed to delete my Home entry from my online Honeywell TotalConnect account and then re-add it using the controllers MAC and CRC numbers.

    Can't you just upgrade your wife?

    I'm going to give her a few days to think about it, she might see sense and change her mind, but having said that, if the main bedroom HR92 is unable to talk to the controller, the benefit of zoned control is much reduced.

    Try plugging a mini-USB cable into the socket on the side of the HR92. Some people have claimed that this acts as an antenna and significantly increases the range.

    Thanks, I'll give that a try if the wife grants a reprieve on the use of zones
