Re: Global feature requests

I live in a 4 year old precast reinforced concrete construction row house (Stahlbetonfertigteilreihenhaus xD). As you can imagine, we have plenty of insulation. So it happens very often, that the external (and even internal) sensors “stop” working for some hours. None of the sensors is more than ab...

Re: Use IFTTT to turn off thermostat when forecast temp is h

Thanks TypeC - was a bit more complicated than I thought... on redirecting email from cpanel/email back to IFTTT it gives it a different email address - which was different to the 'receive' one registered with IFTTT... so it doesn't work as you need the same email address for send and receive using ...

Re: Use IFTTT to turn off thermostat when forecast temp is h

Thanks TypeC and cmugur. cmugur: that sort of works but what I'm keen to do is not have the boiler fire up when the current outside temp is low (eg at 6.30am) but is forecast to be high later (ie when the sun will eventually do the warming eg by 8.30-9am say). At the moment (in Summer) the Netatmo i...

Use IFTTT to turn off thermostat when forecast temp is high

Whilst its the Summer here in Scotland and temperatures regularly reach 18 or even 19 or 20 degrees (!) I'd like to have the thermostat switch OFF for three hours if: 1) at 6.30am the predicted outside temperature for the day is more than 16 degrees (say) and 2) revert to schedule if (later) the out...

Re: Netatmo with old mechanical Honeywell and ability to mov

Thanks again TypeC. I went for option 3 like you. The old thermostat is still there though! Shame I told my wife about the Netatmo. Would have been quite fun to have let her think the old wall thermostat was still connected..... :)

Re: Netatmo with old mechanical Honeywell and ability to mov

Alternatively I could connect the unconnected blue wire to neutral. The relay should then work if it gets the power from the red wire, which it will do providing the timer is set to ON all the time... Will check the instructions for the 'relay'

Re: Netatmo with old mechanical Honeywell and ability to mov

Hi TypeC Ok have investigated further. In fact you're right, despite three wires going into the old thermostat, only two are connected - red and white. Red is powered with 240V when the Drayton 722 timer selects CH otherwise not. So I guess if I put the Netamo thermostat there all will be fine. If h...

Netatmo with old mechanical Honeywell and ability to move

Hi I have an old Honeywell mechanical thermostat with a three wire connection. This is connected to a 7day timer that controls hot water and central heating. What I would like to do is be able to move the Netatmo thermostat around the house. So, rather than connecting the Netatmo in place of the old...
