As far as I know HomeKit is the problem it can handle only on or off, no away mode currently implemented for heating.
Yes, but the Netatmo app just needs to have Away mode in their system connected to the On/Off status in Home. It should be fairly straight forward.

Re: Away mode for HomeKit

I've since found a workaround using Homebridge (running on a raspberry pi) and IFTTT. Setting up a couple of dummy switches which control Away mode, and in my case a schedule change based on who is at home, via IFTTT, which are triggered when people arrive or leave. Setting up homebridge takes a bit...

Re: Add modes to HomeKit

Bumping this as is the killer feature that is missing.

Suggested elsewhere even if the only available modes are toggle on/off, surely these could be 'mapped' to different modes within the Netatmo app. E.g. if homekit says thermostat off, set to away mode.

Re: Delaying valve closure

If temperature has been reached at the valve and nothing else is calling for heat, it makes more sense that the valves just instruct the boiler to turn off, and not close the valve? If the boiler comes on again at a later point and the room with the valve(s) are already warm, at that point the valve...

Re: Away mode for HomeKit

Digging up an old post... as the Netatmo app doesn't natively support geofencing, utilising Homekit for this would be really useful and (I'm assuming) straightforward to implement in a better way. Ignoring manual boosts, the only other setting the Netatmo system can recieive from Homekit is on or of...
