Bug: Switching on via alexa routines sets temp to 21 degrees

Options

If you use Alexa routines to switch off and on a thermostat then it will always default to 21 degrees instead of the schedule (even if the schedule is for it to be off anyway.) This means a basic functions like disabling the heating when the ring alarm is armed or disabling unoccupied parts of the house are impossible.

    All I've done is to is to set the power to off and then back on. I have not specified a temperature in the routine, yet when switched on its set to 21 degrees (even if the schedule is for it to be off). This is definitely not something I've set as our house is heated to 20 not 21. It's a bug.

    Strange. I've just tested and if I simply go to the Alexa app and switch the thermostat off and on using the built in button it sets it to 21.
