Seasonal modes, Winter and Summer (13, 14, and 15)
During Winter, the heating control is normally required to
be quite responsive to maintain the target temperatures,
so the response time may be set accordingly (10 to 120
seconds in 1 second steps). During summer, battery life of
the thermostat may be extended as the response time of
the heating control may be set to a higher value (10 to 120
minutes in 1 minute steps).
Note: Setting the response time to less than one minute
could significantly reduce battery life.
This summer and winter response times may be set from
the settings section on either the web browser, or
smartphone app.
TRV warmup time (16)
To allow any TRVs to reach their own designated target
temperature, the heating can be set to continue heating for
abdefined time after it has reached the target temperature
at the thermostat location. This TRV warmup time can be
set from the settings section on either the web browser, or
smartphone app.
Reverse relay (17)
Depending on the boiler requirements, the relay may be
left as default (Normally Open), or may be set to reverse
operation (Normally Closed) This may be set from the
settings section on either the web browser, or smartphone
app.
eTRV Integration
For initial eTRV setup please refer to the eTRV instructions
which are available on our eTRV product page.
All sections in eTRV Integration refer to the eTRV pages on
the app. Repeat the following procedures as required for all
eTRVs that are to follow the thermostat.
Follow Thermostat
You can enable any of your eTRVs to follow your
Thermostat. By following the Thermostat, the eTRV will
replicate and maintain the same target temperature as the
Thermostat. To do this, select your desired eTRV from the
dashboard. Select the last option on the page “Follow
Thermostat”
Select your Thermostat from the list and save.
This returns you to the eTRV screen which now displays
the Thermostat being followed, and the “Thermostat
Overrides” option
Selecting back returns you to the eTRV screen which now
displays the number of Overrides created in the circle to
the right of “Thermostat Overrides”.
Thermostat Overrides
An Override timer allows an eTRV that is following a
Thermostat to ignore the target temperature of the
Thermostat for a period. The timer will specify the time of
the override, the days to activate the override and the
desired temperature during this time. To set an Override
timer select your desired eTRV, then select the “Thermostat
Overrides” option.
Create the Override by defining the target temperature,
times and days as required then save.
Unfollow Thermostat
From the eTRV page, select the “Following …” option that
shows the name of your thermostat.
On the following page, select the option “Tap to unfollow”
and save.
