About this deal

Looks like slight price decrease

I wonder if it will go back down to £110 like in 2022 or £159 during BF

  • Saving energy starts with your thermostat. Your thermostat controls 60% of your energy bill. So shouldn’t it help you save energy? The Nest Learning Thermostat does. Since 2011, it’s saved over 4 billion kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide*. Because it learns from you. It gets to know the temperature that you like while you’re at home. And turns itself down when you’re away. It even learns how your home warms up or how draughty it is, so it only uses the energy that it needs
  • Auto-Schedule. Just turn it up and down. It learns the temperatures that you like and creates a schedule for you
  • Home/Away Assist. It automatically adjusts the temperature after you’ve left. It can even turn off your hot water if you’re away for a few days
  • Hot water. Now you can control your hot water tank. And give your hot water a boost when you need it
  • OpenTherm technology. Nest now uses OpenTherm technology to modulate your high-efficiency condensing boiler
  • Remote control. Change the temperature and control your hot water tank from anywhere using your mobile, tablet or laptop
  • Farsight. When the Nest Thermostat spots you across the room, it lights up beautifully to show you the time, temperature or weather
  • Pro install. The Nest Thermostat should be installed by a Nest Pro who will make sure that it’s in the right location, connect the Heat Link and set it up for you. Find a local pro at nest.com/eu/…all
  • Better together. The Nest Thermostat works with Nest Protect. If Nest Protect detects dangerous carbon monoxide gas, it can tell the Nest Thermostat to turn off the boiler - a common source of CO leaks

    Worth considering the Hive heating system if you're going to invest in a smart thermostat. They're usually similarly priced, deals come on and off throughout the year. I picked up a Hive Mini for just under £100 not that long ago.

    I have Nest and my parents have the Hive Mini which I manage for them. Both are good systems but the Nest system doesn't seem to have had any software or hardware updates for several years after Google acquired them. I'm a bit nervous about them pulling the plug on the whole service at some point.

    Hive on other hand still seems to be actively developed. I find scheduling on their app much easier to manage. A feature they added in the last couple of years allows you to see a chart of the room temperature throughout the day. Also quite like that they've got other smart control devices that can run from the same platform like motion sensors, light bulbs and sockets.

    Nest has add-ons but limited to cameras and smoke alarms.
    Nest has a humidity sensor which Hive doesn't, but again can only get the live view.
    Nest hardware looks and feels nicer. It doesn't need a hub to connect to your router so it's a slightly cleaner setup but then the hub is fair if you're looking to add other devices.

    would really like to get this to replace my Honeywell which can only be programmed for 3. time slots in 24 hours with no day specific settings. Little unsure if I should go for it at this point. Certainly better than close to £190-200 this has been in last few weeks

    Have a look at Tado V3+. Just got one for £99. Can control it through the free app. Pretty good so far

    Are these easy to install on vaillant boilers?
    I’m a pretty competent DIYER?

    I’m an incompetent DIYer. 
    If you have an existing wired thermostat that you are replacing, it is a doddle. I followed a YouTube video and was up and running in less than an hour.

    Anyone knows how long battery lasts before it needs recharge?
    I'm planning on installing it on the wall, but there's no constant power supply. I don't like the idea of leaving it on the table. (edited)
    Avatar
    It doesn't. It needs a constant power source, if you unplug it from the base station it'll moan at you until it switches off.

    I'm having a bad experience with our Nest, just seems to randomely turn on by itself, especially annoying in the middle of the night. Very frustrating.

    I turned off the auto scheduling feature. It’s supposed to be smart enough to figure out what schedule to set using it’s sensors. It’s possible that bit has gone haywire. If you’re just talking about the screen randomly turning on, that again is a sensor issue. It detects movement no even at best of times they’re not that accurate. I also have this turned off.

    I've been waiting for a drop for what feels like so long!
    This is an "ok" deal, i'll vote heat for the drop but I'm still waiting out for more.

    Yeah same, I need two.

    I don't think it'll go back down to that £110 point...I would bite if it was around £130-140...I think that's realistic?

    I bought a grade a from CEX for £115 the other day. They don't come with usb/plug so unless you have pre installed thermostat, you will need to buy this / the stand which is around £30
    Avatar
    The backplate for it is wall mountable and can be powered by the boiler, so you only need to buy a stand if you don't want it near a boiler or on a wall.

    Got this in copper Oct 2020 for £150. Would've thought prices would drop at this stage
    Regardless, this has been very useful in those years and would recommend even at this price.
    Avatar
    Yep, bought mine for that price back in 2018! It's a great looking thermostat and fairly easy to DIY so long as you can access the existing stat wiring (some are under the boiler cover which you're not allowed to remove unless you're a gas safe engineer).

    Google seem to have removed the ability to control the thermostat with Alexa (the skill is there but it will not find your thermostat on your Google account) and have been stubbornly silent about this. But it's a bit of a gimmick anyway and hasn't affected me using the Nest app.

    Just installed one of these on our old oil burner heating, replacing an on/off switch & timer (no thermostat). works a treat. Linked it up with home assistant easily too. (edited)

    Just need a different retailer like Argos to have it at this price or cheaper, some of us get work discounts or just want to help out retail stores

    Try eBay, plenty cheaper and helps out the little person Tryna make a little money

    I'd like to be able to turn the heating on just for an hour when I feel like, short of setting up some kind of schedule it doesn't seem possible. Maybe I'll find out how one day. Can't say that I'm that impressed with mine.

    No boost feature like hive.
