Been keeping an eye on this as it's been well over £100 for a while now. Not the cheapest it's ever been but a good price for an Alexa enabled smart thermostat. Gets some good reviews

Great thermostat, looks great without all the flashing lights. Heat added... Excuse the pun!

Very easy to set up

I have this also. It's excellent.

Radiator valves also available for this, down to £49.99 at Maplin.

I was torn between this and the Tado. Went for the Tado in the end for its smooth and unobtrusive look and geo-fencing. Just set and forget.

i have netatmo and do agree geofencing is missing... would have been a welcome feature... maybe a firmware update in future....

You can use IFTTT to do Geofencing with this.

I just set schedules based on School holidays and if I need it warmer than the schedule I use an IFTTT DO Button.

You can always use ifftt on iOS or android too create Geo fences as well as numerous other ways to control netatmo thermostat

I have oil heating and there's a digital timer I can turn off and on, I'm not sure this is what I need?

I have oil heating and a digital timer.

I bought a netatmo one year ago.

It allows me to turn turn the heating on and off according to the timer,

BUT:

It allows me to set different temperatures for different times of the day. e.g 21 degrees when everyone is getting up in my house, but a constant 18 degrees after the kids have left for school.( and my wife is at home), then 20 degrees when the kids get home from school.

The on/off timer that you have, will just turn the thermostat on or off. The temperature could therefore drop dramatically overnight.
The netatmo ensures that the temperature does not drop below a minimum set temperature (that you choose) at night.
It will also learn how quickly your house heats up,so if you set your temperature to be 20 degrees at 7 am, then this is what you will get. (If you used your old timer, you would set it to turn on at 6am or perhaps 5:30am so that the house is 20 degrees by 7 am. This may result in unnecessary use of your heating if the house is at 20 degrees by 6:30am)

It allows me to remotely turn the heating up or off using the app.

It allows me to monitor the number of hours that my boiler is working each month.

If I go on holiday, I can set a minimum temperature or turn the heating off. I can then turn the heating back on using the app when I return to the uk or I can tell the heating to be at a set temperature at a set date, so the house is warm when I get home.

The app sends me monthy reports of how many hours my boiler has been active during the last month.

My wife keeps turning the thermostat up too high - this helps me to keep an eye on things and set the temperature back to a sensible 20 degrees, even when I am not at home.

The device works with my amazon alexa.

I hope this information helps you to decide whether this would be useful for you.

Hi there, I know little about Tados (or any of these smart thermostats), but am looking to replace a wireless (non-smart) thermostat. and £85 sounds like an excellent price. 2 things though:-

- Does the maplins kit have everything you need? The blurb on their site says "Access and control your heating and hot water (requires tado extension kit)" Does that mean I'll need an extension kit to link it to my boiler?

- What's the difference between v2 and v3. Have been trying to look it up, but haven't been able to track down too much yet...

I have this and it's fantastic, specially with the new mobile App. Very flexible set up as you can either wall mount the thermostat directly connected to the boiler or mount it in another room with the thermostat battery powered; batteries last ages due to the eInk display. Simple two-wire, volt free connection from the relay will work with most boilers, even my 12 year-old Ariston combi works without issues.
The Phillippe Stark design of the thermostat is very classy in my opinion, and blends well with any decor. Works with Alexa, 0.1 oC hysteresis, and geofencing is indeed available via IFTTT. Been flawless for a year so far.

Had the Netatmo until we recently moved and loved what it could do, smart heating is the future and not sure if I should refit with their smart RTVs, I'm looking at the Drayton Wiser system, any help in making this decision most welcome. Heat added BTW!

For those interested in the Tado V2, the only difference with the V3 is an upgraded hub which will connect with Amazon, apple and googles systems.

A reply back from Tado themselves seems to indicate that even a IFTTT setup won't get around this, so if integration is your thing, then probably the £85 Tado isn't for you.

Here's the Maplin link maplin.co.uk/p/t…9rx


Seems the only difference is Apple HomeKit support on v3.
Regarding the Extension Kit it says "When replacing wireless thermostats or setups where there is no existing thermostat, you will require the tado extension unit", so I guess it depends on the existing setup or not.


I personally prefer the Netatmo, the relay that's connected to the boiler talks to Router via WiFi and the Thermostat via Radio (You setup the Relay using Bluetooth). The Tado has a "Bridge" which you have to connect physically to your router (plus there's the uncertainty of do you need the Extension Kit?).


I got my Netatmo with an Echo Dot last year from Amazon and it's HomeKit compatible (so these ones should be too). I have to say it was really easy to install too.

Have this model.Very happy with it.No issues at all.Paid £100 inc fitting.

Bought last year, got a gravity fed system, initially installed myself as a wired stat then changed to wireless myself, just email netatmo pics of your set up and they can tell you how to wire it all.
