    Default Evohome controller: Easter egg or something else

    Today after having fully installed my evohome controller I've found an interesting super hidden feature. By double clicking to the left bottom side of the evohome display, a pop up appears asking if you wish to access to smart features. One of them is the control of the zones according the weather. The problem is that I've my mistake selected that I do not want see this pop up anymore ans not even by double clicking it does not appear. Any ideas how to put it back and access this weather feature?

    Sounds like you have something special! I have just tried this and no pop up!

    Would that were so. I donít have Smart Features as an option. The only way I can see Smart Features is if I look in the mirror!

    Well, at least now you know you have to be careful not to select that you don't want to see them anymore

    It is how I know I am alive. If what I see moves, I know I am still here!

    I think you must have the beta version of the software for the Control Panel which will be why I don't see the setting.

    Well, beta? My Evohome was delivered a month ago with FW version 19.31. That version had the Smart Features. Elsewhere on this site it turns out that 19.31 is a beta version. It looks like Honeywell quietly decided that this beta version (while still containing some funny quirks like using the max allowed temperature as the setpoint) was solid enough to ship in their product, I applied for the latest beta last week and got version 19.33 which still has the Smart Features and solves the setpoint bug.

    I've solved by running a factory reset. Now when I double click in the left corner I get the pop up again.

    Btw how can I check the software version?

    Enter the Settings menu and the long press on the Device Settings.
