I’m not sure about the deal but this is the best deal at the moment with installation with all the color available at the time of posting from direct nest store as part of Black Friday deals.

I can see many retailer have reduced the price for nest without installation but none with installation at the time of posting.

Hope it may be useful for someone.

This deal ends tonight.

At the end of the day all we should be concerned with is our own pockets. If a company pays or doesnt pay tax that's an for the government to resolve. Who wants to willingly pay tax? We pay a substantial amount of tax on our salaries before we receive it and then we pay 20% on everything else as well. Even the Queen has offshore savings in tax havens (Paradise papers)

I recall last year British Gas increasing prices and making something like 500 million in profit from us the taxpayers. In addition, I dont see BG taking care of the elderly - with the fuel allowance not being enough to cover the heating and some dying due to harsh winter conditions.

Lets not get political, and apologies if I have, lets just focus on saving a few quid or 2!

Just came to post this although honestly it's the simplest job to self install. It's just the electrical diagrams that might confuse a novice DIYer. I got my brother to install mine as he's done a few in the family and he's not an electrician or plumber. In my case it was connecting 4 wires from the existing system.

Heat all the same as not everyone will be comfortable installing themselves so this is a tidy saving.

Just consider getting a private electrician quote or two as they may be cheaper than the £65 saving over buying from Amazon for £155

A bit of a harsh comment .... Even if it is true!

Been waiting for these to reduce for a while. Fingers cross amazon reduce the white version too at some point. Just silver at the moment. Even better if it goes down to the £109 price point in September! (But I don’t see that happening!)

Good luck with that. You can find an installer and request quotes via the Nest site but I’ll be fucked if any of the 15 electricians I requested a quote from bothered to reply. I chased Nest and they fob you off
Makes me wonder if these people are allergic to money

Can these be used to control the hot water too or will i need a seperate programmer for that?

  • Auto-Schedule: No more programming With Auto-Schedule, Nest learns from you and programs itself
  • Auto-Away: The Nest Thermostat automatically turns itself down after you leave to help you save energy
  • Hot Water: Now Nest can control your hot water tank You can even adjust the hot water schedule from your mobile
  • Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home voice control
  • Remote Control: With Nest app, you can change temperature, check Energy History, and get an alert if your home gets too cold

Considering grabbing one of these but ideally want the Copper version, just looks more premium. JL have them standalone for £169.99 so that makes this roughly £50 for installation. Will see what private quotes I can get but thanks for the heads up.

Couldn't agree more.

Not so easy for me as the installer had to connect some wires, and cut off other wires, by the boiler where the old thermostat is and then go upstairs to where the water tank is and put the right wires into the new unit and do the U connections as well.

For me the installation was well worth the money (I had tried to do it, realised it was too difficult, out everything back and called the professional in!).

Be aware you might need to sign up to £5 a month for the remote function on the hive compared to the nest that is free.

just to fill everyone in quickly the nest can do water and for a private install its around £100

I have had a nest now for 2 months and so far here is my experience.
I got mine installed which took all of 30 mins and my wallet got £100 lighter. The nest was installed on stand as we don’t know where to place it and we do plan on decorating soon.
You can set the nest to learn you temp preferences from your inputs or you can manually put in a schedule. I put in a schedule. placment may be key to the nest as it has alot of sensors

PROS

What I liked is the interface is slick and easy to use.
The product looks very classy, The screen is good. The app is nice.
Can be added to other services, but in my case didn’t want

CONS
the away as it is being a pain in the rear and not triggering. Currently try to get it sorted it did work for a week or so but then stopped working as expected.
History only shows 1 week and isn’t that detailed

Nest has lost the link to the boiler twice now.
No feedback to why the nest does what it does some times.
The idea that the nest would turn on as I’m traveling home so that it’s warm when I get there has not materialised. Nest if set to away suddenly triggers when my phone connects to the home network.

The heating can be on 2 minutes before the schedule has been set to 10 degrees less. I would have expected it to be a bit smarter and realised that there is to be a temp change so just to leave the heating.



In summary if you want one and done have any room thermostat it’s a good idea, that was my situation.
If you have a room thermostat then maybe stick with it.

Has it saved me money as promised? At the moment I’m not sure. As I was frugal with it previously. I can however see my usage easier. Do I regret the purchase? Not really I needed a thermostat.



One caveat I will say is that in my network I have a dedicated hardware firewall protecting the network so that might be interfering with its operation.

Hey guys, does this replace your programmer or just adds smart abilities to your wall thermostat.

Price is showing £269?

I'm sure we don't want to get into a debate on this (and I went with Nest myself) but I find your argument odd. We do pay a substantial amount of tax ourselves as you have pointed out, and one of the reasons for this is large companies and rich individuals not paying their fair share. I realise its for governments to resolve, but lets not pretend it doesn't affect us all.

I hear you Mark43 (43rd in line to the throne?) Perhaps you're right - all I know is the more a government, company, person makes - the less they spend. I guarantee if everyone paid their fair share we would still be paying what we are paying. The rates we pay are not calculated based on how much HM Revenue & Customs lose from those smart enough to pay the minimum.

Anyways - last I'm saying on the matter if you wish to respond send privately! Lets spare those with better things to do - like save!

A word of warning to those like myself who went for this offer. Although the website lists this at £219, I was charged £279, not the discounted price of £219, and needed to cancel the order to rectify this. Check your receipt -- and if possible your credit card charges.

I also got charged the full amount, Nest customer services said they would refund the £60 after the order ships.

Just to add; I got charged the right amount of £219; and it is being installed next week (still waiting on the confirmation date).

Just out of wonder are you able to pick the installer or do Nest force you to use the one they set?

You pick the date and they send you an email the next day to confirm that someone will be coming round to instal it. I did not get an option on which installer.

That's a real shame. Had a few quotes using their site and there was a specific guy who was much more helpful and responsive than the rest.

I’m sure if you contact Nest they may be able to help out.

Thanks, got mine booked in but earliest dates for me are into the New Year now.

I got a few quotes to fit with cheapest being £100, so this deal made much more sense.

I had mine installed a couple of weeks ago and the lead time with the installer was about a month... bear in mind we’re now well into winter I can only imagine that supply and demand will push dates and prices forward. Mine was £70 and I’m in the South East.

I bought from screwfix deal. Fed up with not getting quotes from tradesmen. I guess they are too busy. I took the plunge and installed it myself yesterday, works well.

The question is, where should I put the display unit? If I put it in the bedroom, the rest of the flat will be cold, since the bedroom is small and heats easily. But when I go to bed, I want bedroom to be 23 C, rest of the flat can be cold, I don't care. I guess my dummy wireless thermostat was easier to set, I would just have it with me all the time.

I have a question if anyone has two wall wired thermostats, one controls downstairs and the other for upstairs. I have only one programmer located in the kitchen next to the boiler. Am I able to install the Nest heat sink and thermostat downstairs. Then buy a second thermostat and wire it to the upstairs thermostat?

I tried to speak to American customer services and they said no, only one thermostat per sink heat. But I only have the one next to the boiler.

Thanks

FYI all, mine arrived a few days ago and it was installed today (works perfectly!). The packaging was a top and bottom box that lifts up (not like the older slide method box). However there were no power cables in the box, the tech who installed it said it should contain the cables and to contact nest. Having spoken to Nest, they state that the newer ones are not supplied with the cables; however they’ll send them express delivery as a good will gesture.
