Product Description
Honeywell evohome ‘Connected’ Base Pack ATP921G2080/RFG100

Honeywell evohome ‘Connected’ Base Pack ATP921G2080/RFG100 contains:

Honeywell evohome controller
Interchangeable covers in White, Black & Silver
Table top stand and mains power lead
BDR91 wireless relay box
RFG100 Mobile Access Kit

This offering of the Honeywell evohome Base Pack is our very own ‘evohome Connected Base Pack‘ which means it comes complete with an RFG100 Mobile Access Kit in the price.

When bound to the Mobile Access Kit (RFG100) the evohome Base Pack becomes a wireless ‘Connected Programmable Thermostat‘. This enables the user to time and temperature control their heating up to 6 times per day, 7 days a week via a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch using Honeywell’s Total Connect Comfort App.

The Honeywell evohome Connected Base Pack is a great first step to creating your perfect evohome system. The evohome Connected Base Pack contains everything you need to upgrade an existing heating programmer and room thermostat to ‘smart’ central heating controls.

In Base Pack form, the evohome controller acts as an intelligent programmable thermostat and the pre-bound BDR91 wireless relay box creates the switched live demand for your heating system, meaning it is compatible with every 230v heating system (S Plan, Y Plan or Combi Boiler Systems).

The evohome Base Pack controller has an easy to navigate backlit colour LCD screen and has the ability to be independently time and temperature controlled up to six times per day. The evohome controller can be used on the (supplied) mains powered table top stand or can be wall mounted with an optional evohome Wall Mount Kit (ATF300). If using the Wall Mount Kit you will need an existing 230v in-wall power supply and a 40mm deep back box to house the AC/DC transformer. The evohome controller has a choice of idle screens and a day and night mode that can be manually selected or can be set to change automatically. The colour of the evohome controller fascia can be changed to either white, black or silver.

If you wanted to ‘smart zone’ your home, the evohome Base Pack controller becomes the ‘brains’ of the system and has the ability to time and temperature control up to 12 heating zones and a single domestic hot water zone. When controlling a zoned heating system the evohome controller has a number of features that make operation easy. Zone names can be input to show the rooms/areas controlled and the zones can be controlled as multi-room or as single-room zones. Zones can be configured to give individual local override of a room or rooms within the zone. The evohome controller can be removed from the stand for easy programming and has a battery life up to 6 hours.

If you have radiators and want to ‘smart zone’ your home, Honeywell’s evohome Radiator Multi Zone Kit (HR924UK) is available so that you can easily zones areas of your home and the HCC80R Underfloor Heating Controller is available when you have an Underfloor Heated Home.

Isn't a Nest kit about the same and better connected?

Theres a good round up in the Guardian

Would love to go for the Honeywell and build it up over time to control all the radiators. Heat added at this price

Have some heat, I would prefer the decimal point to be in a different place though....

nest
...

Tado for me.

I have Nest but really wanted this before Nest was available in the UK.

I had a plumber come round to quote for installation but found that my system just wasn't compatible.

The reason for this is that we have lots of "designer radiators" in the house and the way they have been installed (at our request) means that the wirelessly controlled thermostats just wouldn't fit onto our radiators without digging out walls and making a lot of mess.

If you have bog standard radiators everywhere it shouldn't be a problem but the wireless thermostats are quite big so could affect placement of furniture and things like that.

I am very happy with NEST in the 10 months we have had it...and its really come into its own since the cold has set in....dual zone control means that the system is now being used more efficiently as we are only heating upstairs when absolutely needed.

Since Ive had nest smoke alarms fitted as well the Home/AWAy system works very well as each of the devices acts as a promixity sensor so the system know when you are home or not....

I think the honeywell system definitely has its place though....and if it fits in with your current or new home then id say go for it

I've just had a new boiler and dual zone valves installed.

The 2 valves are placed to control upstairs and downstairs separately. But my plumber is saying I need 2 separate thermostats one upstairs, one downstairs. Each thermostat controls each zone valve. I bougt the honeywell 927 wifi versions. Unfortunately, they don't have a app to access from outside the house.

I'm very interested in this thread... Can anyone tell me do need to purchase 2 of each to control the zones or will a single system control both valves?

My thermostats cost £100 each but I would rather pay a few quid more for the app versions.

Personally, these days, I wouldn't touch any of these systems without some open protocol being used and hardware that's not manufacturer specific, especially any system that uses mobile communication to turn it of and on, you cannot guarantee the future support of the devices.

There's a long list of home automation and security companies that have struggled to make any money in this field and have ended up providing limited or no support after a couple of years.

If you built a system around, say z-wave, at least you'd be able to pick and choose software and hardware, and being a proper standard that's open, you can swap out hardware if necessary.

Brought a complete Evo system last February, it's saved just over £200 so far on my gas bills upto now. I fitted it myself with 7 zones, got it all for just over £720, so going to take a few years to recoup the outlay, but great system, when its set up right it gives you full control over all room temps and timers individually, hot water control and its all remotely controllable from your ios/ android device.

How on earth do you save £200 on gas? What was your gas bill before or do you live in a mansion?

My entire gas bill for the year on a 5 bed detached house doesn't come close to £200, I reckon spending the money on insulation ceilings, walls and floors would probably be money better spent.

mike

well just got home from work brought up my gas account so i could double check my figures. comparing year on year, before honeywell evo system, £454.42, then after a year with eve £267.68. so actually £186.74 difference.

now the system is not just about the saving its also about the control it gives you, any room can be set at its own target temp and time settings, so only have to heat the room / rooms you want to, you don't just have one light switch for every light in the house.

i find it a great system, but it doesn't mean it's right for everyone, if your bills are already so low it just wouldn't even be worth wasting your time or money on.

ps i replace all the insulation in the roof when i did my loft conversion, so it's now over spec when compared to building regs, the loft conversion is also nice and warm due to the use of 100mm celotex in the walls and the ceiling is insulated with Triso Super 10 Plus.

Do you live in a new build?

A standard 1935 - 3 Bed Semi is roughly £5-600 Gas estimate for most comparison sites.
Im amazed you get a 5 bed detached below £200 !

Honeywells Tech Support are amazing too! Heat!

It won't let me add the code..! Please help. Thanks.

You need to create an account and not checkout as a Guest as the code is only valid for new/first orders.
I've just gone through and made an order and worked okay.

ALSO anyone looking at this deal wants to get a better deal consider ordering the bigger kit they have.

I have just spoken to them to confirm what is included in the kit. You get:

1 x Evohome Controller
1 x Mobile Access Kit
1 x Multizone Radiator kit (4 rad stats)
2 x Radiator Valves

So that's 6 Radiator valves and the Evohome setup for a bargain price of £421.44 !!

Does this definitely come with 6 valves?

Does this definitely come with 6 valves?



If you mean the kit i linked to then yes. I purchased it when i posted it after contacting them and they read out the items in the kit whihc i listed above.

I figured it would only come with 4 but she read out all the stuff i listed and when i collected it was exactly that. Best value package i could find with the discount given!

Let's me use the code but doesn't discount against the Honeywell pack for me???
