The clever learning Nest learning Thermostat. Finally came to the UK couple months back - the cheapest it's been yet.

Installation from pro is recommended but DIY'ers shouldn't have too much trouble. Got it when it came out and whilst still waiting too see real it's savings, it's certainly a neat and clever little device

As it's Prime - fast and free delivery too !

not bad but they had it for £199 when it was released in the UK and that included installation (which they valued at £70). Not voting

Did you install it yourself?

If your on npower and don't mind going onto a contract you can get these fitted for ~99 quid.
Not a brilliant deal and definitely not suitable for everyone, but if you weren't planning on switching energy for the next 2 years and their tarrif is suitable it may be worth a look!

And for the average UK home which doesn't have air conditioning, the chance of this even making the money you paid for it back in savings is what exactly?

did make use of free install promo at time.
@davester2k every home is different and I can imagine the 'average' uk home may not save much. But many will. Then again, many will prob but it for it's looks. There's also tado which does offer similar functions and available in monthly instalments ..

am I right in thinking that this only controls heating systems and not hot water, as most current thermostats do!

I have one of these- ordered on launch day with the free installation. It has halved my gas bills and the temperature in the house is now much more stable.

Yes it doesn't do hot water(the clue in the title)- the existing timer does that (I have mains pressurized tank hot water system).

The smart thing about this is it works out whether you are in the house or not automatically and also has a clever feature called true radiant which works out when to turn the heat off early knowing that the residual heat from the radiators will continue to heat the house to the desired temperature.

Looks nice but I got a tado - didn't take ages to work out how to integrate with UK systems, discrete by working in the background and phone interface, and has a remote sensor for temperature plus does hot water (latter two thing soon tonne enhanced). And £7/month.

Tempted, Question though, I usually turn my heating on for an hour when I get up before going to work then i mainly use the boost button for an hour a time when in the house. Would this cost me more in the long run, I assume that the heating is constantly on holding the house at a certain temperature?

Before you go to bed, you set your desired temp, and nest will try and maintain than throughout the night. In the morning - as opposed to hitting boost in normal programmer - just turn nest up, then either turn it down after hour, or let it figure that you leave home using auto-away. Either way, it'll learn that's what you like and start doing that on it's own eventually.

I would highly recommend you get a HIVE unit fitted from British Gas. It does heating and hot water, smart plugs are available to boost signal in large properties. Next generation technology where hub will control all kinds of devices in your home at the touch of a button.

Thanks, looking at the reviews it looks impressive, I almost purchased and may do. Not sure if all this tech is really necessary though just to replace a time switch. I am trying to convince myself here, just press a button or have all this tech..

if your heating is always off besides for the one hour in morning it would seem a bit of an overkill me thinks ! But yes it's a neat little piece

I'm getting this installed with npower for 99 quid in just over a week. I can't wait!!

This thermostat was bought by Google and they have big plans for it, it will be a hub for all the home automation products that we will all soon have.

And so they can Spy on you like they do on the net and emails.

Nest thermostat also works along with Nest Protect.

I had a Nest Protect only last about 1-2 months before it broke. all happen when i changed WIFI router, come up saying low battery Nest Posted me out new ones. it went off when my GF was cooking food not even alot of smoke. they then done a recall for the Wave function to stop the alarm. no big deal as they can turn this off with a software update so was ok. about a 2 days after the new batters arrived i got a message on my phone sensors have failed. nest said they would give me a full refunds and 3month later i got the refund (my fault as i forgot to post the product back). sins all this has happened the Nest protect has been brought back out after the recall and i think they have dropped the price from 109 down to like 80 if u have one you can contact nest to get £20-30 back. have also read alot of people have the same issue with battery and the sensors. not sure if they have updated this sins i got mins when they 1st come out in the UK

Mine works perfect, love it. And do you really think you are not being spied on and tracked by every tech company out there or every supermarket loyalty card scheme, I don't mind them reading my emails if it stops me being murdered by Islam
