    Doubt that’ll solve the issue... most likely just leave you with some nasty abrasions!

    Check synchronization of clock and pre-programmed input.

    I have come across similar situations due to the neighbours having the same RF thermostat and it switching the heating next door.

    Some thermostats & receivers go through a pairing procedure when first installed so that shouldn't happen. Others, generally the cheaper versions have manual settings (eg Salus) these tend to be left on the factory RF address code when installed, so interference can occur with other nearby units also on the factory setting. If yours does have manual RF settings and they are still factory set, try changing them.
