You should try this:
luup.call_action("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:TemperatureSetpoint1_Heat", "SetCurrentSetpoint", {NewCurrentSetpoint  = "22"},        HVAC_ID)

I'm trying to run a scene which sets the thermostat at 21 degrees until 23:00.
No matter what endtime i enter, it always comes out 'now + 4 hours'. Using EMEA login, Evohome.

local lul_arguments = {}
lul_arguments["ThermostatID"] = "xxxxx:xxxxx"
lul_arguments["newSetpointValue"] = 21
lul_arguments["SetpointMode"] = "HEAT"
lul_arguments["SetpointType"] = "TEMPORARY"
lul_arguments["SetpointEndtime"] = "23:00"


What am i doing wrong?

OK, I plumbed "Eco" and "Away" thru to the EMEA backend to set the mode (I did not add DayOff or Custom). The issue here is that when the backend reports the status as Eco or Away it must be converted to something vera expects. It will be shown as "HeatOn" so there will be no indication from vera what mode it actually is in (but you should be able to read what was set in the TCC ModeTarget variable). Part of the problem is vera uses two setpoints, one for heat and one for cool. You need to know which mode you are in in order to know which setpoint is valid. Anyway, if you set the mode to "Eco" or "Away" using the HVAC_UserOperatingMode1/SetModeTarget action it should send the mode thru. I have attached the 3 files needed. I can not test this code at all, sorry.

Mike, thanks very much for looking into this. I've been away on vacation so just catching up on this thread but really please there could be a way forward with this.

I'm afraid to say that I'm very much a newbie with Vera and don't how to implement a change in SetModeTarget from a scene. Could you please give me (and anyone else who may be in my position) a few steps in the right direction?

Hello Mike, could you give a few steps how to implement a SetModeTarget from a scene, I'm also not so familiar with this.

I replaced an older z-wave thermostat with this new wifi total connect enabled one and the plug-in works fine (TCC mode) but I cannot seem to get it to set the temp when in AUTO. Cool and Heat work fine but AUTO no matter what I set it clears and goes back to 0.0
