    We got ours for 170 including installation. If anyone interested in this deal let me know and I'll see what I can do

    Hi,

    It really brilliant piece of technology! It was cold yesterday morning so I turned the heating on. We left the house forgotten to turn the heater off as it was on manual. No problem turned it off while doing some shopping!

    It does make us much more aware of temperature in the house and decide if we want specific temperature at specific time and able to plan heating a week advance!

    I could check to see what the house temperature like before arriving home to decide if want heating on.. Honestly it like having a Butler at home :wiggle :

    I really like the automatic safety feature if the house temp is at 5 degree it will heat it up to 7 degree to prevent frozen pipes.

    Will get some pictures tonight

    I think I'll find it easier to get hive installed than nest to be honest

    Definitely need something, the existing timer is an old thing and a nightmare

    I've got a similar system by Passive Systems. I signed up for a trial through John Lewis (where I work) and got the equipment for free, I had to pay £100 for installation.

    It works really well, and it's really handy for those times when you're doing things outside your usual schedule.

    This is all very interesting...provided we are allowed any gas down the pipeline of course

    No, you may not have gas
