    today at 08:52 I have the following o/s temp readings
    1 - evohome 12C
    2 - Accuweather 14C
    3 - my digital outside temp gauge 15.2C
    so still unclear why Evohome is lagging so far behind

    @ally153 If we are making a list of bugs that are not fixed in .33 here is one.
    When radiator valves are used on all radiators, Evohome's normal advice is not to use a zone valve on the CH circuit. However since .31 when you put Heating Off on the controller, all the manual overrides from radiator valves are ignored. In previous versions, they were not, but I think that was a bug (even though some of us loved it).
    However now that manual override stays on the radiator valve but ofcourse the boiler never fires. So the person who made the manual override has no idea why.
    Things get quite interesting when the HW kicks in, in this situation, which could be several hours or days later. Because there is no zone valve on the CH circuit but the radiator valve is completely open, due to the manual override made at some point, that radiator gets toasty. And no one even realises it and why.

    During Heating Off, the controller should resend the Off set point at various intervals, so that atleast any valves opened are closed again and it always provides a visual clue to the person that something is stopping the manual override.

    Just to add balance to temperature readings,i just checked mine


    1=evohome 16
    2=accuweather 16
    3= 0regon weather station 16.4

    So no lag

    So no lag
    Or the temperature hasn't changed much over the past few hours.

    Lag is most visible during the earlier mornings and evenings. Less so at mid-day.

    [QUOTE=DBMandrake;43031]As far as I can see the code doesn't need to know whether there was a manual override set before before Eco mode was enabled (and therefore be trying to restore anything later) because cancelling Eco mode already cancels all manual set point overrides and goes back to the scheduled temperature (follow schedule mode) anyway - just like every other quick action change. So there's nothing special for it to do.
    From memory, if you set a timed Eco/Boost, if there are overrides in place, they will continue to run if the time Eco finishes before them, but we reduce the setpoint of the override along with the other zones, which causes the complication. I expect this issue can be fixed relatively easily, but I always want to approach these problems with an abundance of caution so I donít fix something for you just to create a new problem further down the line.

It makes getting the desired manual override a bit of a chore even when you do understand what's going on.
    I completely understand how annoying the override issue could get!

Load scaling is great for warmer weather with light demands (I no longer have to manually turn down my flow temperature in summer) and also schedules where the house may be in equilibrium for a few hours and then a zone like a bedroom is scheduled to come on - with no load scaling that bedroom would bring the boiler demand instantly to 100% and remain there for perhaps half an hour until the zone started to approach the set point, this would inevitably cause uncomfortable overshoots in other rooms like the Living room that were previously in a nice equilibrium state as those rooms were not expecting a sudden step change in flow temperature. I noticed this a lot last winter.
    Perfect, this is exactly what we were aiming for and what we had seen in our test lab and homes Ė great to see feedback from the field seeing the same improvements.

    Yes, when outside temperature information disappears, we cancel all active weather & optimisations in effect and re-calculate the setpoint.

    The battery management code does cover topping up batteries. I believe the problem with battery management stems from contact issues. The workaround Iíve been given for those affected by this issue is to try cleaning the contacts on both ends your unit and the battery ends too.

    You're absolutely right, we did and actually we did have debug screens to allow us to test the weather features internally. Those screens havenít been translated into all countries Evo is offered to and so isnít in the released software as we didnít want to compromise the user experience.

    The sensor we used to produce, as youíve mentioned was expensive if you are only using it for a temperature reading and has been made obsolete (some of the components canít even be sourced anymore, with no alternate parts, so literally we canít produce that device even if we wanted to).

    None of this rules out support for an external sensor either via OT and/or a proprietary sensor in the future, there simply wasnít enough time and resource in this project to accomplish either.

    Wow, 45 pages of this... Would have been great to have been tagged at the start.

    Hi everyone, hope you are well?

    Mine is ok

    Accu =14

    Digital weather station =15.1

    Evohome =14

    Met Office =15

    I have noticed evohome takes a minute or so to update
