[OpenTRV-interest] Evohome like system

I don’t know what I am talking about, but your '10% if ignored and 50% if utilised', gave me a thought.
Why not develop a learning system? Most people have a 7 day cycle of heating need. Even retired old geezers like me behave differently on Sat/Sunday. Most day’s activity will be a repeat of the day before. The computer can tweak the zones/temperature/timing according to a 365 day calendar, the older the system gets the more accurate will be its predictions. You will need a sensor to record when people move into a zone.
A brilliant little iPhone App will enable the user to help the programme learn too.
There is a roundabout near me with lights. It has a learning system with a 365 day calendar that varies the lights timing according to what it has learned. I still hate the lights, but it is much better than it was.
