I know that the item itself is pretty 'marmite' (hit or miss) - but, this is the best price I've seen for a while yet. I don't know if it would get any lower during Black Friday.

Good to finally see a deal on these but I’m still unsure how long it would take for the item to pay for itself at this sort of price point
Poor reviews are putting me off getting some
No discount for bulk buy. Hive do a 5 for £199 and I have 11 rads

I think there are issues with using this in the room with a thermostat already present.. I was going to put one each in the guest rooms - given that I have thermostats in other rooms/floors

I saw the alert and hoped for this to be the 5 pack - bummer

If it's anything like evohome then you set the room thermostat to control the temp in this situation and the rad valve just works as an actuator for for switching the rad on and off.
Hive had 3 for around £100 in a recent sale. My brother got them. I don't have TRV valves so no good for me

It depends on where it is located. Some here have tried acting like mathematicians to prove these are a waste of money however my bills prove them to have a massive misunderstanding how a heating system actually works.

Start with the warmest rooms first and keep going from there, the warmest rooms are normally upstairs. Don't put one of these in the coldest room, if that is not your hallway, then you need a new solution for that which is usually some form of insulation to address the heat loss.
I've got 14 rads and one has no TRV (always open) very expensive to control all of them at this price.

Could be tempted at 3 for £100. I am currently manually adjusting 3 at the moment. Just to see what, if any, different it makes.
I have Tado which have similar. I’ve just bought 4 and beyond the comfort factor in rooms I’ve found that by have some rooms off at time’s of the day the other rooms heat more quickly which brings its own benef
If you have myson tvr’s you will need to order the caleffi adaptor form hive waiting for my adaptors to arrive

I tried the hive sensors all of which failed and went back after he third attempt got my money back their quality control IMO is dire.

I’d basically be putting it in the kitchen, which I’m happy to let freeze from about 1900 through until 0700 the following day.

I bought 3 of these on offer from Hive when they first launched in May. At that point they were absolutely dreadful, simply didn’t work. Spoke to Hive numerous times and it was clear they were launched without any real testing and the early adopters (ie. me!) were pretty much the guinea pigs.
Essentially the early software was rubbish....but I stick with it and after trying them again in September they have been really good. (Software much improved).
They do require an initial period of “calibration” which takes a few hours but once that’s done they heat up and respond quick enough. Normally about 20 mins.
To cut a long story short. They are good (now)
can anyone recommend which TRVs to get? I have no TRVs (just open/close valve with no thermostat) and I understand that HIVE radiator valves doesn't come with them. I have spoken twice with hive customer service but they don't seem to understand what i mean by thermostat.
I looked at these also. Screwfix did some TRV valves for about £10.
I was told a plumber would want £50 to fit each though??

Kitchens are usually a cold room as they have tiled floors and a door facing the outside which is opened often. If you put this in there then it may call upon the central heating system quite often, so if the thermostat thinks it's warm (let's say in your hallway) but the kitchen door is opened then the kitchen TRV will request heat and the rest of the houses gets hotter accordingly and the bills stay high.
