Considering what's been happening with Google cloud connected devices whereby they're killing the servers and in effect that's bricking the devices I'd be very weary of buying one.
Avoid Npower at any cost, they are scum when it comes to customer service.

On the flipside I have this, from the Npower deal and I couldn't be happier with it. I'd be very surprised if they stop supporting nest considering the number sold worldwide. Cracking little gadget IMHO.
Nest/Google seem set to shaft their existing customers - so paying anything to become one of them seems a poor deal to me!

I don't agree with how Alphabet has dealt with the Revolv and their customers and I DO think its done damage to the nest brand (a lot). But the fact in their statement they stated, they bought the company for the team, not the product and are focusing on "Works with Nest" causes me to believe there isn't much to worry about, because if Nest isn't around or the infrastructure behind (Firebase), there's no point building anything for it! As for "Key" staff leaving, I cant see that affecting the product for some time, if the Revolv are as good as Nest have made out.

I have a Nest and from Npower(same deal) and I am very pleased with it, the recent update, which uses your mobile location for the "Away" feature is a nice upgrade, and I think we may be in line for some sort of home hub soon, using the Revolv technology..

​I never like to bash companies except for npower. Honestly, best company I've ever had to deal with
Could somebody tell me how long it takes to save the £200 initial cost?
I got my 2nd gen Nest from nPower for 99 quid including installation. I then left them a few months later X)
Good deal - self installed Nest on the weekend after buying the unit from B&Q for £199. It's not as easy as you may think, especially if you need to run new wires from the boiler and cylinder.

If you're on a combi boiler - will be easy for a competent DIY'er
If you're on a system boiler with separate water cylinder - not so straightforward

Good find!

I think it could take a while. I haven't seen significant savings with my Nest, maybe £5 a month if that. But I couldn't live without it now, for the convenience factor, it's priceless.
I upgraded form a v2 to a v3 which was simple (literally 1 extra wire) but installing from fresh would be a big task unless you really knew your stuff.

No problems with Nest though. This is a huge product line for them. And it works fine offline as well.

How do you upgrade from a v2 to v3
Man additional wire for how water control and just replace the control box and Thernostat
ive been with npower 2 years now never had any issues with them at all
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.
brilliant oO
