Yes it was showing the time. As well as being a dumbish thermostat, it has control abilities of its own, which I don’t use. So it has a RTC as well. It would appear that this gets synced by / to Vera (and yes we have the answer for the 8 hour time drift so that’s good)
The underfloor is controlled by this:
In don’t use any of the program feature, just the set point, controlled by Vera.
It works perfectly well as that, although Very, as a device, things it has fan and cooling modes as well, which is a bit odd. I’ve not messed around t with trying to fix that as I just leave it on ‘Heat’ and when the sensed temperature drops below the set point on comes the heat
Another benefit of this is that the temperature sensor in the device can be calibrated. Mine was reading about 3-4 Celcius higher than actual, which meant the set points were a bit out of whack with the other stat I have
The manual was a little hard to translate but managed to get the thing calibrated properly without too much trouble.
OTW I’d recommend it as a cheap(ish) way of integrating your underfloor with Vera
