Found 1st Mar 2015
I noticed another deal that had £10 off at Jewsonstool until 2nd March - so only today and tomorrow this deal is available.

It looks like you have to pick up from a store, no home delivery available.

Thanks to egosney, as it saved me £10 as I nearly paid full price yesterday. hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…213

Yeah I'm hoping it will pay for itself within a few years.

Thought there was a government initative to get these into every home for free (or one similar) I have this one free as part of uswitch deal free install offer.

Not only the saving in energy cost but just the ease of use, my partner loves this, she has been able to turn the heating on from her smart phone on the way home from town in the cold weather. Ovo have now fitted me with smart meters as well, for once in my life I feel I am in control of my heating costs. No more estimated bills or reading meters, monthly bills that I can easily control my direct debits in seconds online.

That just tells you how much gas/electric you are using it won't control your heating, they do give you good info though.

But how much more expensive is that than the best deal on the market? I haven't done a comparison but I doubt it will be market leading.

British Gas are doing a discount on the Hive one? I assume it does the same thing, but which is better? Thanks.

They are offering it free, but at average energy usage it works out nearly £250 dearer than other cheaper tariffs. You're just essentially buying it on tick

Not really sure but I like the look of the Nest and it 'learns' your routine etc but I think both are quite similar

Do you need an electrician to fit it?

They recommend that you get a professional as it needs 240v. You get a heat link that attaches to your boiler and the main Nest unit.

The real benefit of Nest is that it will likely become a kind of standard for other devices to connect and be monitored by. This will make Nest a much more of a useful device than other kinds of Smart Meters, IMO

I looked into Nest and Hive and ended up getting Hive because it controls your water as well as your heating which Neat doesn't do.

Also Hive is getting lots of new add on features this year such as home security, remote lighting etc all from the one app.

Didn't know you need a thermostat for the nest?? Wife's is always nice and warm.

I had one and sent it back.

Customer service non existent and free install offer was useless.

Looked at that tariff and with my usage over the year it would cost an extra £200 on my bills. Better off just buying one.

Got one last year, took the 'installation specialist about 1 hour to fit so wouldn't like to attempt it myself. Excellent product as we have a heating bill of almost 2 grand/year the 10-20% saving claimed means it will pay for itself in a year.

Good review in February of all the best smart systems.

I have had nest since the launch in uk. They are great, but the 'learning' bit is not as amazing as it might seem, unless you have a very set routine. Easily pays for itself though

Nest is designed for combi boilers, purchased mine from ebay and fitted it myself in an hour. easy to do if you have a bit of knowhow. Reading the comments on here it is beyond what most people understand. Also you will not get this for free as part of an offer from a supplier, they just charge extra for gas/electricity to recoup the cost. Just like a mobile contract, you pay for the phone with the increased cost of your tariff as apposed to sim only.

We've had ours for nearly a year and so far we've saved £14 a month just from water heating and central heating costs! It learns your lifestyle and either turns off when you leave the house and gets the temperature you want for when you get home. Its a brilliant little device.

it was much cheaper last summer. now the winter is almost over, so in my opinion is better to wait for some summer deals. good device though. easy to install and works quite well

BG Hive has a wireless thermostat so can go in any room. Nest is hard wired to where your current room thermostat is. I got Hive and haven't looked back, nice piece of kit.

Tado. Check it out.

The heat link is hard wired but the whole point of nest is to be wireless.

This has gone cold... But can anyone find a cheaper price?

Been looking at this, but cannot tell why it's better than Nest. I'd appreciate your reasons why you chose the Tado over Nest

I think the main reason is the location sensing, so it will know when you are close to home and heat your house up but that can be done on the nest with a little work.

Thanks for the replies/comments reference the Hive unit - currently I have a manual Honeywell thermostat in the hallway which seems to work ok (although looks a bit basic/a little dated I guess!) Would the Hive unit just connect here, on the existing wires/circuit?

Thanks.

Why do the links take you to Edf and British Gas?

The Hive thermostat connects to a hub which is plugged into your router wirelessly. Your old Honeywell stat is just linked out. Hive also has Geolocation which notifies you if you want your heating on or have left it on when you leave home.

CommentLooked at that tariff and with my usage over the year it would cost an extra £200 on my bills. Better off just buying one.



Possibly but now I have mine without paying up front I am already monitoring my energy use and cutting back accordingly (including remotely) thus usage over the year will be less.
