Found 28th Mar 2015
Bought this on Wednesday night and it arrived today (Saturday). Same product that sells on Amazon UK for £143.41, comes with both euro and UK plugs if you need and instructions are in English.
Cost is made up of:
€153.05 - product
€6.11 - delivery to UK

Note this will be billed in Euro's so make sure you have a card that doesn't charge foreign fees, alternatively Amazon.fr themselves can bill you in GBP - £121.09 including delivery. Still saving £22 off the UK price.

Link to Amazon UK site for reviews etc: amazon.co.uk/Net…8SY


Now £130.88 but Netatmo are doing a £30 cashback promotion for this month. See their website

Heat for using the strong pound, product look ok too

Looks smart, and less than a nest. How easy did you find it connecting it to the boiler?

It depends on whether you have a room thermostat already, if you do you just swap it basically like a light switch. I don't, so I will wire it into the boiler which is just 4 wires.

They have a video here to give you the basics: youtube.com/wat…UlI

I'll be doing it in a couple hours so I'll let you know how it goes!

It's £99 at 365 games. If it controlled hot water too is def get one. I might get a Nest.

Strike that - Nest won't control hot water grrrr.

You could try the Salus IT500? It's about £110-120 usually

Think I might get a Tado and an extension kit - they have a rental deal for 4.99 for the first year and can convert to buy after the first year. Trouble is I don't have my new boiler yet and is like to wangle the extra 10% discount off them that I've seen that people sometimes get.

Same situation I'm in and don't fancy running wires for the stat. Definitely interested how you get on.

It was pretty easy, the 2 wires for the thermostat were simple and then to wire in the power for the relay I took it from where the power for the boiler comes in, so just putting 4 wires in 4 connector blocks. So just like in the video except that on mine where they put in the blue and brown wires, there were already blue and brown wires so I just added the ones to the relay.

I'm thinking about getting one of these, would you recommend?

Yep definitely I find mine brilliant

They have £30 cashback on at the moment, tempted.
Have you saved money? Would you say your house temperature is more consistant?

Original Poster

It depends on your situation but for me I definitely save money because I didn't already have a thermostat at all, I was controlling temp via the boiler control and the valves. Do you already have a thermostat? If so your benefits will be:
- Not heating the house when you aren't home
- Controlling temp via app/computer
- Setting day by day temperature controls easily
- It learns how long it takes to heat the house so it comes on at exactly the time it takes to heat to your desired temperature. It also factors outside weather conditions into this.
- The temperature is incredibly constant due to the above, if the temperature is dropping fast it will put the heat on a little bit to "cushion" the temp fall. I mean that it doesn't necessarily have to wait till the temp is below your setting to know that it will drop below it. In the same vein it will stop the heating before reaching your desired temp as it knows the room will keep heating for a little while after it turns off.
- You can move the thermostat to any room you like.

It takes a few weeks for it to learn your house heating profile. I think it's great and if you can get £30 off it then I would definitely go for it, a winter of comfort for £80? Bargain. How much money you will save depends on your settings and how often you find you aren't at home.

Thanks for your reply, unfortunately the price has gone up on amazon.fr but its £139.99 at amazon.co.uk. I do already have a wireless thermostat but its very tempermental and it only has a degree either side for on and off and can get too cold. I'm just weighing up between this and some programmable TRVs as I work at home so the heating will be on most of the time anyway.

Original Poster

I considered programmable TRV's too but the price was going to be high for one that is centrally controlled (I didn't want to have to fiddle with each one all the time), and we mainly only use living room + hallway, and then bedroom later at night and first thing in morning.. One benefit for me to programmable TRV would be say not heating the bedroom till towards the end of the night and not heating the living room in the morning/day. I have one normal TRV and have issues with it keeping the temperature stable, but I'm kinda picky about it.

Overall I took the simple option and I've been very happy with it.

Also not sure if it will apply to you but got free loft insulation via those government schemes and it has helped a lot.

Hi again, I have had the netatmo for a few weeks now and I'm pretty happy. The only thing is it seems to be out on the temperature. Other thermostats I have in the house are reading 1.5 degrees lower. Have you noticed this? Out of interest what do you set your comfort level temperature at?

Original Poster

Hey, I haven't noticed that because I didn't have a thermostat previously and haven't bothered to check the reading with another temperature device... I just set it to what I feel is comfortable which for me is around 22 or 22.5. It probably also matters at what height I have the thermostat at too, I have it about 6ft off the ground on a shelf.

What you can do though, is on the netatmo control panel site (my.netatmo.com/app/therm) go into Settings > Advanced Settings and there is an option "Force a temperature offset" where you can offset it by a couple degrees so it matches with your other ones.

I was more worried that it said 19C was the correct internal temperature and we were finding it too cold. I don't suppose it matters what the actual temperature is as long as we are comfortable does it. I'm not sure my other thermostats are reliable anyway one of them being a cheap set of electric kitchen scales! Although I did notice in a friends house that they had a thermostat sticker on the wall that said 19C and it felt much warmer than my house...
