    Thanks for that, What I would have expected was that a long press on eco would not only give the option to set a time but would also give an option to choose the offset. There is plenty of room on the screen to show both at the same time. I anticipate wanting to set varying offsets at different times and it is crazy to have to go into different menus to make a single action ie an defined offset for a defined period.

    It's taken soooo long and constant asking to even get a variable Eco setting. Infact it wasn't even there on the Beta 1.

    Don’t get me wrong, great to finally have “offset mode”. Just think it could have been made more intuitive and convenient.

    Don't get me started on what all could be improved. Resideo doesn't appear to want to make massive improvements to Evohome. So we just say Thank You when they make any changes. I upgraded to Evohome WIFI with the lure than it will stay up-to-date, and to be fair it has. But in all the years of ownership there have been 2 firmware releases. 2!!
    And I lost per zone optimization and local outdoor sensor support.

    I did not participate in the beta because I doubted that I would use the new features, so would not have been able to offer meaningful feedback. The same applies to a lot of the discussion on the forum covering advance usage and monitoring. I do however read with interest much of the discussion and think that it must be very frustrating for those who put in a lot of effort to provide unpaid support to Resideo’s customers, only to have their suggestions largely ignored without comment. Having asked for unpaid help in beta testing, would have been good for Resideo to have given you a bit more feedback.

    As you would probably have noticed, most of my comments are aimed at encouraging Resideo to sort out the basics like battery charging and to make operation as simple and intuitive as possible, but this does not mean that I do not accept that others have other ideas and priorities. It is good that forum members, engage in rational discussion without resorting to personal abuse, long may it continue.

    Back on topic. I tried to show the family how to use the new offset eco mode and the response was not encouraging, not intuative and too many button presses required. I suspect that it will only be used when I am around and the rest of the time I will have to leave it set at -3 so they can carry on as before.

    I have not checked the operation regarding manual offsets, as I believe this has already been found to be “wrong by design” and we can only hope it is corrected by Resideo in the next firmware update, which is likely to be years away as this update has yet to be fully rolled out..
