Yes the evohome does a similar thing.
When the weather outside was 19 degrees, my indoor stat is set at 21 degrees.
Due to the warmth outside it felt a pleasant and comfortable temperature, we had the patio doors open to the kitchen as it was sunny. But the system wanted to call for heat still.
I had this on a couple of weekends and I had to keep manually switching the heating off.
Also in the mornings the temps drop and the house drops to around 19 degrees so in the morning the stat is calling for heat, but I don't want the heat as it's a nice comfortable temperature.
The only way round this was to either alter my timings or do the ifttt.
I'm not 100% sure how the v smart works, but I presume it is similar
Ah, well I'm talking about absolutes whereas you're more talking about 'perceived temperature', those are two different things. I'm happy for the V-Smart to take care of the former, to literally get the indoor temperature nailed down to what I've set it to be. There are indeed occasions when for no real reason I wish the temperature to be a degree warmer or cooler (it might even be my getting a little warm doing say the housework) and on those occasions I would literally just make a manual adjustment, up or down, and that's easily done on my phone. With the V-Smart as soon as you've done that it will keep that for the next six hours, but also immediately offer to reduce that on a sliding scale down to 1hr. That works just fine for me
