Setting the unit to become the boiler hub is easy (though may not be what you have in mind).
In the CLI enter
and the unit with switch to hub controller mode and will keep the boiler running for 2 minutes after the last call-for-heat was heard which is the minimum for use with FHT8V units. If you have a good boiler bypass I suggest something like C 4 or even C 10. Note that this mode should not be used with battery power as the receiver module has to be kept on most of the time.
will put the unit back in non-hub mode.

I would like to send this from the OpenTRV controller, but I can't figure out from the help text what I should send (and is timing important??). The valve STILL shows "AC" with a flashing antenna; so according to the manual it's awaiting said code.
