Listed price is currently £526, I paid £421 after discount.

Read a lot of reviews saying this is a league above Nest, Hive etc when it comes to individual room control.

I bought this last year - from Amazon Germany. I live in a big old stone house with oil heating, I reckon it paid for itself in the first year. It really is fantastic. However, if I lived in a smaller house, non detached that was insulated to recent building regs, It would take significantly longer to recoup the outlay.

save yourself the hassle and expense, these are dreadful.

the problem we had were

the trvs kept losing connection with the hub, it change each day which ones weren't connected.

the app kept crashing, we had LG G4s at the time, at one point they did an update and we had to uninstall and reinstall it and then re set up all our programs etc

seetting it all up and connecting everything was a nightmare.

the trvs have little motors in them, at night when the heating went down it would wake our kids up, it's not that loud but loud enough.

I've still got all ours, spent over £800 on it all, open to offers :p

we've since had hive and nest, we didn't like the app with give so sent it back after two weeks but we love nest, we have the 3rd gen.
#3
£526.80 inc vat, is this the latest version, I thought it didn't have the extra hub box now. I nearly went for this system a few months ago to replace my Hwell programmer at £130 but repair that anyway so will wait for a good deal
#4
Once up and running it's great but boy does it take some effort. Tech support pretty good!! Just don't set a new password and try to clear any faults in the log. There is a bug that causes the base to crash. Drove me daft!!!
#5
mines working fine too, and I love it!!

Hi, this seems a great deal bit can anyone advise what the difference is betweenn this thermostat and the Wi-Fi one? http://www.plumbcenter.co.uk/product/honeywell-evohome-wifi-atp921r3100-thermostat-pack-containing-wifi-connected-central-controller--table-stand-and-bdr91-wireless/ thanks..

I think this deal IS the WiFi version, because;
There are 2 versions of the evohome controller/brain that I know of.
The newer ATP921R3100 which is referred to as the WiFi connected version has built in WiFi.
The older version (THR928SRT) needs a separate RFG100 Mobile Access Kit to connect to WiFi, the RFG100 looks a little bit like a 'fin'. (top right in the pic you have on HUKD).
The THR928SRT has a silver/grey bezel around the main screen, (Google THR928SRT and it should come up. )
The ATP921R3100 has no grey bezel and is wifi enabled itself.

The picture you have in this deal seems to show the old version with the fin RFG100 but then the offer link on PlumbCenter refers to the newer ATP921R3100 thermostat in the specifications, best to confirm with the retailer what they are actually selling, but looks to me like it is the newer wifi connected version, therefore this deal looks like a good deal to me.

Summary:
Old version has the grey bezel and needs the fin thing
New version does not need the fin, and I think it's great!
If this is the new version then i think it's a good deal.


More info below if you want my 2 pennies worth;
I bought my kit from;
http://www.vesternet.com/evohome-heating-kit-thermostat-4-valves
and
https://theevohomeshop.co.uk/13-honeywell-evohome
This plumbcenter deal looks like the best price right now. The pre sales support I got from the 2 retailers above was brilliant though.

Before buying I read a whole load of reviews and even went to the EcoBuild show to see the Honeywell stand and discussed the details with them. I currently have the ATP921R3100, 8 x HR92UK and the underfloor heating kit. Everything works really well and for me and was easy to setup. I've had the kit over a year and can honestly say I've not had any problems with it. The first test install I did tested the radio range from the 2 furthest points in my house which is 20meters plus a bit because it is diagonal from upstairs to downstairs. I'm going to extend my kit soon with another 8 HR92UKs for the remaining rads.

I would say that the android app is not brilliant, but it works without fault for me, it does look very dated, but like I say, it works for me. Some months ago the honeywell site went down which meant the app stopped working, but the thermostat in the house kept going. I had no way of knowing that the honeywell site had gone down, so I spent a day messing around with the app and comms etc, so honeywell should improve on their comms to customers.
The wifi thermostat controller, bit, does its thing ok, again no comms issues. Early in the install I had RF issues between the controller and the BDR91, but that was because my fridge was between the 2. I moved them both and have not had issues since.
When it was new I did spend the first few weeks just messing around with the settings and getting to know the kit, installed the app on my wifes android phone so she can also controll the same system, etc. Just playing really.

When I was researching I found some cheaper european style HR92's, note that lack of the 'UK' from HR92UK. This means that the digital readout is upside down for our UK radiators, still works apparently but would be disappointing for me.
see this site for details, imagine the TRV on your rad and you'll see what I mean.

Other options include a table top stand or the wall mounted kit. I wish I'd gone for the wall mounted kit as mine must have hit the floor at least half a dozen times in the past year, still works but has battle scars to show for my clumsiness.

Hope this babble was of some use to you and/or someone else, as I say, I have the kit and like it a lot, I've used it for over a year and other than the cost, I think it's great. I prefer it to the Hive as this can individually control each rad. I believe Hive can do lights aswell, but don't quote me.

I think this is a good deal from Plumbcentre. If you buy it, I hope it works out for you.

I've just realised I can add pictures, this may or may not work.....

wow, great info. if you don't have a trv on some radiators at the minute how do you control them via the thermostat?
1 Like #9
I have 8 rads with the Honeywell TRVs, so they are controlled via the ATP921R3100. The other rads will heat up whenever a 'HR92UK controlled' rad requests heat.
If you imagine that a single HR92UK in bedroom1 requests heat, then the boiler will send heated water throughout the whole system. If other HR92UKs are 'off' then they will not heat up, only bedroom 1 has the open TRV so only bedroom1 heats up. However, in the hallway I have a rad with a standard manual TRV, so that will heat up whenever the boiler fires up - just like the standard home set up with standard TRVs - (ie when you want to heat the living room, you need to heat the whole house etc. unless you turn off all the other TRVs manually.)


So any rads with a HR92UK can be evohome controlled, and they can send a request to fire up the boiler. Any remaining rads with no HR92UK will heat up when the boiler fires, as long as they are not manually set to off.
That's why I 'need' to get more HR92UKs.

Someone mentioned the noise of the HR92UK. I can certainly hear the HR92UKs spinning at the preset times but they are not so noisy as to wake us. This is completely subjective though, and I can understand that some people would find the noise obtrusive, you have to try it in an actual room at night to really understand how the noise will affect you and yours.
One thing I've noticed, or noted, is that when changing temperature by say 1degree, one would expect the 'spin' to take a second, or less, it actually spins for approx 5 seconds, seems a long time to me considering the change is minimal. Possibly something to do with the gearing and fine tuning ability.

Definitely is the WiFi version as I have the bundle at home!

I hope it's not as bad as you say you_gotta_be_kidding, as I went for it after reading lots of positive reviews. Our new house constantly feels like the heating is on full blast, and this is about the cheapest way I could see of getting some room by room control. Though still yet to decifer the wiring to my Worcester combi...

With that kit, you get 4 TRVs instead of 6, but it can control a hot water cylinder (not needed if you have a combi boiler)

When I got this house last year it has the HW 927 controller and it's good - they even left the old unit which must have fail with the boiler so after fixing this one in Sept I will check that out as well.
Having sold all makes of controllers always liked the HW versions.
I do want this kit but the pay back would take a good few years on my heating cost for this house. So it's a case of it's not broken (which hurts lol)

Hi and thanks again for the info, you seem to know your honeywell do a quick question, if I have a cm927 wireless thermostat and want to move to the THR928SRT or ATP921R3100 model do I need a new BDR91? Cheers
1 Like #17
Hi, you can use the same BDR91. Just need to clear the old pairing and then pair the BDR91 with the new stat.

I also had a CM927 and changed it to a ATP921R3100. Makes the install a lot simpler!
1 Like #18
Just wanted to clarify: I used my old BDR91 that came with my CM927 and had no issues. Yours should be the same.
If you want to use the new BDR91, the back plates are the same so the new BDR91 just clips into the old backplate. Look for the little screw on the bottom of the BDR91, the install docs do show this quite well.
1 Like #19
Reminder: make sure you turn off the electricity supply to the BDR91 if you are going to swap it out for the new one.
I'm sure you knew this anyway, but it's easy to forget the basics when you've got new gadgets to play with!
#20
cheers, I've checked and it is the newer Wi-Fi model..seems a great deal..
#21
Went for this along with a 4 pack hr92 from Jtm, can't wait to get it installed...cheers guys..
#22
Thanks for this, it's actually perfect for my needs with 6 rads in the house, previously I was looking at plumbnation for the stat and then a kit of 4 and 2 singles but was coming in at about £493 so this has given me a nice saving.

Can also confirm that it's the new model stuff, great price for all this, got a plumber coming tonight to price up a few things, blockage in heating system and also fitting a magnaclean, so will ask for installation price on this too. Maybe next winter we won't freeze!
