    That "whole home" deal was a pretty good deal. Comes with 4 extra thermostats for £130 extra, so that's about £32.50 each.

    I don't think there were any other differences? Alas, that deal is gone now, who knows if it will ever come back.

    Yes. No other differences just those 4 extra thermostats and overall cheaper deal by around £40. I am also seriously considering but will wait for a while.

    so far, it seems that the tuya option is more attractive. I just need to work out how viable it is ripping out the old Honeywell room thermostat.

    The idea would be use it only to control the heating and leave the existing honeywell panel in there to control hot water.

    Room thermostat would be swapped with a smart wifi enabled tuya thermostat that I can program and talk to via the app. Original honeywell panel would then be put onto continuous, with the new thermostat panel then running when the heating actually goes on and off.

    Individual rooms/rads would then be equipped with tuya enabled TRVs, same as tado, so you still get granualar room by room heating.

    The benefit of this is that my existing led strips which I plan to install in the kitchen will also run off the same app...

    I have a bunch of their smart lights and would never buy them again.

    It's alright if you want your heating controlled via some poorly maintained server in China. Several times I haven't been able to turn and off the lights in my home because of unreliability of these servers.

    I'd rather get an option where the hub is local so there's less to depend on.

    Good to know! I havent come across any comments discussing their reliability.
    I have some smart bulbs on order as a test. If they come out ok, then I was going to dip into heating next.
    If not, then I will just move onto Wiz bulbs and look at a separate tado/hive type system and settle for two apps.

    They're also buggy either on the software or hardware side.

    I had a light configured to come on at 5am that I removed the rule for and reset the light, but it still comes on... They're cheap rubbish and most likely a security risk.

    thanks - useful to hear...I will check to see if there is away to use it without the app and look at something like HomeAutomation integration.

    yeah, not on dialup, so should be ok. But point taken - ie still reliant on being connected and cant be off grid.


    Come to think of it, NTP should only be required once for the pi at bootup....it only loses its time if you power it off, no?

    Even then, at least your relying on an NTP server rather than the allegedly unreliable tuya servers in China?

    Fitted all new system a few years back and have a Nest, which has been great, but obviously limited with regards individual zining/radiators. Heard at the time a nest product to rival may be in the pipeline, but nothing since. Also looked into Tado, but integration with Nest not ideal at the time so simply installed manual rad thermostats.

    Anyone know if things have changed in the the last few years re: Nest/Tado working in unison?

    I've wondered this too, it'll be very case by case dependant (house size, house type and insulation, population, people's heat preferences etc). But with energy prices at all time highs, they probably pay themselves off much quicker than ever before! It would be interesting to try and do some calculations though.

    Recently installed Tado starter kit with wired thermostat extension for underfloor heating plus a bunch of smart rad valves. Works very nicely. One thing to be mindful of is the range of the hub, struggles to reach distant rad valves, or through thick walls. Seems to be a common gripe (but don't think it's unique to Tado)

    Unfortunately, no original manufacturer device. Tado online advice is to reposition the hub (which fortunately I can try). They even suggest using the (expensive) smart valve as dumb TRV (!)

    I’ve had the tado system since we had a new combi boiler in 2017. Didn’t go for rad stats - just the basics. Our rads already had some on and they already work as I want them to.
    When originally setting it up I had to email tado and wait for something to be done at their end for it all to work properly. They had to know the exact model of boiler I think, from memory.
    That took a little while to wait for. The plumber would’ve preferred to put in one of the other well known ones at the time - he was better used to them.

    It’s been ok. An occasional offline moment, soon rectified. I think once I had to email them to help me with it though. Even if it does go offline, it can be controlled by the thermostat, so not too drastic.

    I think nowadays people have to subscribe for the geofencing to work but as mine was supposedly included when I got it, it still seems to work for no more per month asked for.
    That said, it doesn’t play well with iOS, at least since 15. It always used to before.
    Tado advice is to leave the app running in the background. Didn’t have to previously. Doesn’t seem to help on mine though.
    I’ve got an android phone as well - no problems at all with that one.

    Only issue with latest version of tado is you need to pay for auto geofencing where it automatically turns off heating off or to a lower temp if it detects you are out of the house via wifi/gps.
    I got older version of tado and this feature used to be free. Reckon it saves me money as don't need to worry about forgetting to turn heating off when I go out.

    On mine I have the thermostat - that can be put anywhere if batteries are used in it (mine is) or it can be wired in to where for instance an original thermostat might already be fitted. Mine’s in my entrance hall - coldest place. It’s got touch controls on it so can be operated without the need to go to the app (or if the internet/tado server is off). It’s also got a setting on it that stops the heating working if there’s a window open (or in my case the front door), so heat isn’t wasted too much. That can be turned off if you don’t like it.
    There’s also the extension kit. That is the other slightly bigger white coloured box shown on the pic.
    Mine has one quite dim pulsing light on it. I think the newer ones have two. That needs to be wired in to the boiler and is screwed to the wall next to the boiler in my place.
    The other thing I needed was the internet bridge. That’s a much smaller gadget - about the size of a lighter or lipstick I suppose, which is connected to the router by an Ethernet cable. It has some flashy lights on it, that should be constant when it’s all set up. If the internet goes off, so do they and one of them flashes for a while before sorting itself out again.
    All three of those gadgets have to connect with each other wirelessly in order to work properly.
    Mine is set to work with a combi boiler.
