Excellent price that as it's usually around the £250 mark

Think they've just announced a new model. Hence the price reduction.

You can get the Nest 3rd for £250 installed. Much better than hive.

Sounds expensive (even if this is a "good price" for what it is.

I paid £90 for my V2 TaDo (brand new on eBay) and fitted myself (it's literally just 2 wires)

It's great for making sure the heating is off.... though I regret putting the app on my wife's phone as she is able to turn it back on! Haha

Curious what the differences may be?

From what I've read Nest v3 and Hive v2 give hot water control as well. I think you need an extra piece of kit for Tado to do that. Can you confirm if that is the case? I'm looking into these at the moment, want to use echo for voice controlled heating/ water. Completely unnecessary, looking for reasons to justify it !

Yes, with my TaDo you would need an extra controller box for hot water. Not needed for me as I have a combi so it does everything I require of it.

I've just bought a tado this week. £47quid for 12 months rental can't really complain - going to install it tomorrow

£199 Netatmo installed and it's a Which? best buy edfenergy.com/sma…art

Confused by the choice of hive, nest, netatmo etc

I've had Hive for just over two years, and still have it. I got it free when I moved to British Gas.

It works fine, but if you're thinking of expanding its use to home automation, I would highly recommend looking at other options first (Nest, Samsung,....etc) as I find Hive home automation bits quite expensive.

Brother has tado, which was what I was after the time (couldn't afford it) but the nest for me came up close second. May just stick with the nest

I install them, nest 3rd Gen is best.

​better in what way? just curious.

I have just bought a Hive with motions sensors and lights,hive seemed a better buy for a smart home. Would it have been better to go for a Nest with a philips hue?

I find them nicer to use, I prefer the interface. The motion security cameras and smoke/heat detectors are good too. As I say, it's personal preference as an installer and it seems to be the way 90% of my customers are going. Non of them are bad units.

As an annex to that, I hate anything to do with British gas who owns hive
Also if you decide to use it wirelessly I've found it zapps the battery's.

​Thanks,looking at reviews both are great bits of kit, I will be using this with Alexa so the interface won't be an issue only when I am using the hive app.
