    Hi, is there any way via lightwaverf app to run the boost feature on the thermostat.

    The boost button increases target heat 1.5 degrees greater than ambient for 1 hour.

    I would like to set this feature but from the app.

    Hi, I have a LW thermostat/boiler switch named House Thermostat and a Radiator TVR named Family Room Heat.

    However when I ask Google Home to increase House Thermostat temperature by x degrees Google sets the family room heat instead.

    Any suggestions what’s going wrong.

    Thanks.

    Not much activity here :-( Maybe I should go to the WB forum. My final setup looks like this. Slightly in conflict to the LW manual but correct to boiler.

    I’ve done a bit more reading and found some info from Worcester Bosch.

    I think now I have to use the high volt link on my LW switch linking Live to COM
    Then COM connects to Live (230V out) and NO to the LR (Live Return).

    This is shown in wiring.png extracted from https://www.worcester-bosch.co.uk/professional/support/literature/greenstar-i-combi-wiring-diagram

    Any further comment welcome though.

    Cheers

    Hi, I know there are already one or two posts but would like to check wiring before i hit the switch.

    I’ve added the current wiring of the boiler DSC_2057.JPG.

    LW Boiler Switch installation states:
    L/N/E boiler to L/N/E Boiler Switch
    NO Switch to RT boiler
    COM Switch to RT boiler.

    From image uploaded you can see RT is not an option.
    Instead there is LR (heat) which is described as 230V switched live inputs CH.

    My guess and from this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ3nPK9ZSJs is that
    1. The white wire link is removed between L (230V Out) and LR (Heating)
    2. L/N/E fed from L/N/E (230V In) to Boiler switch
    3. N (230V out) to Com
    4. LR (Heat) to NO

    Does this sound correct?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi, currently have a lightwaverf socket with floor lamp and planning to install master dimmer.

    Is there someway to switch on the sockets when the dimmer is turned up or do I need to also invest in a mood switch?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Currently have a Worcester Bosch combo with Salus ST620WBC wireless boiler switch and looking to replace with lightwaverf.

    The salus has a very simple plug in interface and actually fits into the front panel of the boiler.

    The lightwaverf seems much more involved.

    Has anyone done this swap and are there any tips?

    Thanks

    Ignore… Managed to find that my link had lost connection. Assumed it was still connected because local commands were working.

    Hi. Just got a Google home mini and have linked my lightwaverf account. It found all devices and rooms without problem. When I try to send command either through voice or even manually adjusting the device through Google home it doesn’t do anything. The command says it has sent but the devices don’t react and I can’t see any activity on the link device that I would if I sent a command through lightwaverf app. I do have one of the earlier link boxes and I wondered if there was a compatibility issue there. Any advice welcome.

    Hi bought the mood switch and initially paired to dimmer without issue. The other day something reset my dimmer and the mood switch no longer controls the dimmer. I’ve cleared dimmer down and readded to app but still can’t pair the mood switch to it.

    Any advise?

    Will

    The home via UDP/away via cloud seems to tie up with my current experience.

    Does anyone know if the webapp (e.g. running off a PC/Laptop) always uses cloud method as I get a delay even if connected to my local network.

    So yes, seems like the cloud is very intermittent…time to start looking in the hackers section for making my own remote system :-D

    Can I confirm though, when my phone is on WiFi and connected to the same WiFi network that the WiFiLink is connected to, and I send a command, is this sent in the same way or does this use a more direct path (as suggested by the pop-up “commands will be sent locally”).

    If this isn’t the case, e.g. all commands are processed by adding to the queue system and the WiFiLink polling it, then why are my “local” commands instantaneous?

    Hold the phone…

    Having re-connected everything the 3G functionality now appears to work.

    Maybe I need to be more patient but having set light to off about a minute later they actually changed.

    …now I just need to see why the command is so slow.

    Another note. On LightwaveRF Manager if I log in then select New WiFi Link (and enter MAC address on box) then I get a new code displayed on my WiFiLink box.

    However, after doing this, lights still can’t be controlled by LightwaveRF Manager.
