Anyone tinkered with the “SG-Ready” inputs on their heat pump?

I was trying to link to our immersion divertor to kick the Hp in when lots of excess power

According to Ecodan instructions you just short a couple of contacts. One for recommend and one for override.

However. When testing I’ve noticed this only works when the timer is set on, or the heat pump is “eligible” to run already. Effectively it boosts the DHW required temp

It’s a shame as I now set our DHW to only heat in the evening after letting the immersion controller do its best during the day. Which means if it gets a spare 2kW and tries to kick of the heat pump via the SG contacts, it doesn’t do anything as the timer is set to off midday...  seems a bit pointless?
