i need to get myself on eof these been looking at next and hive, and i was at a party and one of wifes cousins had the honeywell system installed and was showing how as he was leaving he was turning the heating on. very clever
I purchased this from nPower and installed myself.

The key is to label the existing cables and see which cable is live and neutral. The other 2/3 cables are for your heating controls. Your old heating controls should have a diagram showing which wire is for which purpose. You can then use the nest setup diagram to map them to the correct points.

The only thing I will mention is that the common port on the heating controls (2 and 5) need power from the live cable so you need to add a small cable from live to port 2 and again from live to port 5. Without this, it will not work. I hope this helps.

After some advice please, as I'm clueless about heating systems.
At the moment in the house we bought in the past couple years, the boiler is located upstairs around the corner from the top of the staircase, and the thermostat controls are positioned on the wall directly outside the boiler next to the door that accesses the boiler

The thermostat in this deal will be an ideal replacement for your current set-up. However, if you're "clueless about heating systems" its probably wise for you to get this one fitted. I think fitters tend to charge around £140. However for the more confident DIYers it is very simple to install.

This is a wireless thermostat, so you have 2 components the thermostat itself which you can put in any room (usually the coldest room in the house) and the receiver which you would usually locate next to your boiler. Wireless refers to the fact that there is no wire connecting the thermostat to the receiver, however both the thermostat and receiver must be wired to a power source; the reciever is wired into the mains power and the thermostat is simply a USB phone charger style plug that you plug into the wall. So although you can have your thermostat in any room, it must located near a power socket.

I installed mine a couple of weeks ago and have seen immediate benefits around how much time the heating is on per day, and the heating turning itself down when none of us have been home. Aside from that its great to use a phone or PC to setup a heating schedule and view some interesting statistics around your usage / heating habits.

At the moment in the house we bought in the past couple years, the boiler is located upstairs around the corner from the top of the staircase, and the thermostat controls are positioned on the wall directly outside the boiler next to the door that accesses the boiler

This seems to cause a problem in that when set a temperature, the rooms obviously all heat up, but there's extra heat coming from the boiler itself. As a result, when its set, to say 23 degrees or whatever....as far as the thermostat is concerned, at the top of that staircase next to the old boiler, for quite a long time it it still 23 degrees and maintains thinking that for quite some time, but downstairs has gotten a lot colder....so it's a major pain, wanting to balance the level of heat in the rooms.

The existing thermostat looks like this one that found image of online

https://pmcdn.priceminister.com/photo/Siemens-Landis-Staeffa-RDE10-F-Thermostat-D-Ambiance-Electronique-Programmable-Chauffage-et-climatisation-276430710_L.jpg

It has a cable running to the boiler, but seems to take a battery underneath it too which I did have to change once when the screen was fading. So I'm assuming the wires going to the boiler are for control only and that likely nothing powers the receiver itself other than the battery.

Something like this I presume the receiver would need a power source? And would there be any way to relocate that without having to do some major rewiring to downstairs so that can balance the heat it better?
installed one a few weeks ago. very easy. The heat station is very simple to wire in and there are plenty of you tube videos explaing this.

the thermostat itself (the round dial) requires a constant 12v power supply that needs to be via usb or 12v wire connection dirwct from the heat station you have installed next to your boiler. i used some cat5 cable to go outside from behind the thermostat up into the loft and then across to the boiler to get a neat and tidy wireless looking finish.

with the nest protects i am very happy with this setup and after a few weeks of learning seems to now be in its element.

i have been in two minds about these for ages, prompted by me getting a free nest protect from the john lewis insurance deal (not arrived yet)

i'm driven to buy i think by the geek in me, but can see potential savings too.

anyone have one and care to express a real opinion?

Not sure if anyone else has experienced similar.
I got a message from DPD on Friday saying that a package from Media Group (im assuming it's npower and the nest) would be delivered on Monday.
And then today, a further bemail saying it's been delayed and DPD haven't yet received it.
Has anyone had similar occur?

Yes thats exactly what happend to me today, in my experience and from the couple of calls I made this morning its down to the incompetency of DPD, and its likely the device will arrive some point this week. On a positive note it gave me time today to finish all the new wiring I needed for my particular self-install.

Just to update you had the npower man come this morning. Serviced the boiler but didn't need much was in good condition. Checked all gas appliances flues etc. Gave me a free carbon monoxide alarm. Put sticker on boiler to confirm when last serviced with paperwork to confirm all ok. Great service couldn't find a fault.
It's not a boiler service, it's a safety inspection. They do not follow manufactures instructions on how to complete the boiler service.
They changed my name on my account and now can't change it until I send proof.. Idiots

I was just thinking about leaving npower today.. they don't even support opening a joint account.. I was told that their system can't handle two names for billing. c'mon It is 21st century.. and you know, everywhere is asking utility bills for address proof purposes, just trying to add the missus's name in so she can use the bills for that purpose too..

What's worse is they used to allow joint accounts.

When they changed their computer systems to single named users, they used my wife's name as the account name, but my e-mail address, phone number and date of birth meaning they refused to talk to either of us for a while as we always failed the "security" checks.

Needless to say, we left fairly soon after we twigged what was happening.



​gosh, that sounds messy.. so I am not alone! to make things worse, the cs people I spoke to were very unfriendly as well, when telling me the bad news, not even a sorry..now I am 1000% sure I will be leaving..

i just tried this with a closed account :) get a page cannot be found when trying to add to basket, so not working for me


EDIT - hold on, got to the checkout page. However, the t+c's suggest if you aren't a customer then its 199, which suggests they might charge 129 to start with then try to add the 70. Surely though DSR applies, so you could cancel within 14 days if they up the price?




​Just tried this with my closed account. I either get the page cannot be found page or just an image of the Nest. Basket is showing empty so they have fixed this now. Shame. Good effort though!

I remember reading about this when i first joined them last month but forgot to grab it, it seem to have disappeared but now offering me a month of sports.
To be honest it's one of them 'add credit card and cancel before the end of the offer' offers, I generally forget and end up paying for a month at least so it never ends up being worth it especially when I don't watch it much anyway.
Wow, I guess i need to start remembering stuff.
in this case its worth it though as you can cancel immediately and still get the free trial. go to this link to see if you can still get nowtv entertainment 3 month trial https://www.npower.com/Campaigns/npower-presents/now-tv/?WT.ac=x000x647 (thats what it was before not 1 year- no idea how th2 op got that deal)

Npower are the worst energy provider I have ever had the misfortune to a customer of. They are nothing but hassle when it comes to producing a bill and are just full of false promises. If you are not a customer of theirs then I certainly would not recommend them just to get this offer.
i have been with them for 8 years never had any problems and never changed away from them.everyone has different experiences.not saying they are the best

Yes very true everyone has a different experience. I hope that you never do have problems with them. However they were even fined millions by ofgem for failing to treat cusomers fairly. just google npower ofgem to see for yourself. I was one of those affected by their billing errors and false promises.
Strangely enough Sky phoned yesterday and gave me a free years no contract no catches free tv.They had been offering me 50% off then 60% to come back and yesterday it was a years free subscription no contract no catches.I was quite suprised.

Tip - If you are using this to control an indirect hot water cylinder then disable the bacteria protection on set up, otherwise the Nest will heat your hot water for 2 hours every day regardless of any other settings, even if you set hot water, or everything to off. This is meant to prevent legionella. I would rather take the risk than waste £10 a week heating water when I am away on holiday.

You'd rather risk getting Legionaries than spend £10 a week...

That's quite some statement. I think a better statement would have been that as you heat the waster enough once a day you should be at little risk oO


No one has ever contracted legionnaires disease from a modern DHW cylinder! Legionella needs specific conditions - like water droplets suspended in air typically found in very old condensing aircon units. I've held legionella in a Petri dish which is completely safe in this form.

NowTv Entertainment isn't worth it. Even if it is 3 months free

Its not worth "free"?

Wow, you have very high expectations!!!! You know you cancel after the 3 months right??


OH WELL! Seeing as it's free! I mean, I dunno, a punch is free as well but I think it's terrible though seeing as they're free! It makes it all the better!

TL;DR - Just because it's free doesn't make it any less terrible. You can only add one device a month and if you deactivate it you've still got to wait a month. It isn't worth the hassle
If anyone is not using a code, would really appreciate one for the family especially Disney channel and Nickelodeon for my 1 year old

Any of these deals cover whole central heating system Inc radiators?
Almost never, as rads are usually considered 'wear and tear' parts by most companies.
British Gas covers radiators, HomeCare 2, 3 or 4 from £12.10 pm.
Covers them in what way though? As in they'll fix them to a state where they'll stop leaking temporarily, or fully replace them?
If it's the former, I suppose it's useful in an emergency. If it's the latter I'll be really impressed (and surprised) as it would be cheaper for someone with some old rads to get cover and then claim.

They won't replace them, its cover for repairs, which as you say is for emergency use, but its useful to remember it covers the thermostats as well.
Avoid at all costs . Nightmare company months of complaints . They threatened court action and they OWED me money . Customer service is the worst ever . Handed everything to ombudsman and got compensation and a half hearted apology . Email every complaint don't bother calling them . Shocking awful disgrace of a company .
My dad's house has pre-meters and npower are sending him bills every month for energy, now they're threatening court action. My place is with british gas and npower were sending me bills for a year, also threatening further action. This is the worst company I've ever dealt with in my life.

This tariff worked out £42 a year more expensive than my current tariff. Subtracting the £30 Quidco I got for switching via USwitch, brings the total cost to £12 for the nest including installation! I was very close to spending £249 for this!

nPower are by far the worst energy company I've ever dealt with. Had a complaint upheld by the regulator against them when they incorrectly sent me a bill for several thousand pounds.


Isolated case. Your personal dealings with them have no relevance.
It seems most energy suppliers have stopped their quidco/topcashback offers :(

I’m thinking of switching to this deal in march, leaving early paying the £100 early exit fee as soon as the nest is installed and move to the cheapest tariff on the market. If you don't trust yourself to install the nest you are saving £149 on the cost of buying off the shelf +installation. I suppose it depends if you think the extra hassle is worth £149

I have read the T&Cs and once the nest is installed it is part of your central heating system and owned by you. If you want to return the nest after installation you have to deal with nest directly under their own 30day satisfaction guarantee or something.

OK, slightly condescending response, but for the record, I'm not "getting precious", it's only a thermostat after all. There are a million more important things in life, just sharing my experience for the community. I've found reading other peoples experiences extremely useful in the past and simply wanted to share mine.

As for why Nest doesn't Geotag, that's probably because as stated the Auto Away feature attempts to fill that void already.

However, I do agree this is not a deal.:)

OK so I'm sharing mine and pointing out to people that Nest WILL NOT HEAT THE HOT WATER if you don't have a combi-boiler. Very simple.
I also stated that OTHER PEOPLE - not you, may want the geotagging feature as it switches ON the heating when you're coming home so you don't to remember and, just like Nest, it SWITCHES IT OFF TOO when you leave.

My point is, that there are better systems around for the money - Tado for example. Also with Tado, if you don't have the big bucks up front you can hire it monthly too.

So yes, I know, we ALLLLLL know that you have a Nest thermostat and you LOVE it but... just because you have it, doesn't mean it's the only one in the world.

Soooooooo.... I hope someone on here finds my advice useful; If you have a Combi Boiler, you're good for a Nest. If not, look at your options.

I await your reply about your Nest...

Cancelled nPower contract looks like a lot of complaints the nest isnt worth the hassle
As a product it is very good. would recommend buying one rather than tying in to a contract and paying more for your fuel

Cool, it's good that you're happy with it and it serves your needs.

My post wasn't to bash Nest and to make you get all precious over it, I think it's a great bit of kit. I was simply highlighting the fact and providing necessary information that it will not serve ALL peoples needs, especially those who need to have their water switched on to heat up - as a lot of people will.

As for your guess about geotagging - a guess is a guess is a guess I guess? Google geotags everything else and it seems to work flawlessly, so I don't know why it hasn't yet put it in Nest either...

And as for this deal... well, it just isn't a deal at all is it.

OK, slightly condescending response, but for the record, I'm not "getting precious", it's only a thermostat after all. There are a million more important things in life, just sharing my experience for the community. I've found reading other peoples experiences extremely useful in the past and simply wanted to share mine.

As for why Nest doesn't Geotag, that's probably because as stated the Auto Away feature attempts to fill that void already.

However, I do agree this is not a deal.:)
I thought it was a deal - you can order it - have it fitted - then cancel the contract - pay the £100 exit fee and go to another energy supplier..............so you can get a fitted nest for £100 - isn't that a deal ?

Not sure if it still applies with new contracts but i've had this cover for a couple of years and, if i don't call them out during the year, i get refunded half the cost.
