Could that be considered an alarm condition that should prompt the user to check whether the radiator is working properly?


Yes, indeed.

Though probably better done at a smart gateway which can bear the code cost AND see that at least some other rads are getting warm on request (ie not a boiler problem) and has a good UI to show the user.

Indeed, I make a similar diagnosis manually for some issues.

Anyhow yes, well done Bo!
