Great looking smart Thermostat, easy installation and perfect control over your central heating from anywhere via your smartphone. Had one for a month now and it was more than worth the £140 I paid for it - it's a steal at sub £100

​Haven't used nest, but having used this I can't imagine what extra nest would give you - and its a lot more expensive. I really can't fault the netatmo.

Interested myself

have just had this delivered (very.co.uk had it for £99.99 with £30 new account discount) but is it as easy to install as everyone seems to suggest?

have got existing thermostat and bit worried about having to dismantle that and replace with the new one or will I be pleasantly surprised how easy it is?

​Plumber did mine as part of a boiler replacement and wanted to know where I got it - he wants to switch to these from nest, said it was a piece of cake to install...

​Set as many temperatures as you like for a many time periods as you like on a many different days as you like - override or adjust wherever, whenever you like on your phone. What else could you ask for? :-)

Apparently one of the best things about this over others is that the actual stat is very low power, thanks largely to e-paper display (like a kindle) - happily runs standalone purely off batteries.

They could potentially hack your central heating to get your wifi password, then access your entire network.

Do any of these systems control individual rooms yet? That'd be my main reason for buying wasting energy and not wanting to turn up/down rads individually.

​Even if 'they' could do this, the juice of accessing my 'entire' network would not be worth the squeeze of hacking it and then driving round and sitting outside my house to access it... I don't wish to be rude but get a grip lol

​You can get this level of control, but to be honest I can't imagine ever wanting to alter the temperature of an individual room often enough to warrant it. One of these with TRVs in each room is perfectly adequate :-)

There are apparently Netatmo TRVs due early next year (no idea on price); I believe Tado also has these coming.

Been impressed with my Netatmo so far, installed about 18 months ago, first set of batteries still going strong.

Hmmm.. Netatmo were meant to be releasing the TRV's THIS year... Have they definitely been delayed?
Maybe they'll arrive just in time for spring...

​The point is, having your heating connected to your network makes such things no more likely than having your phone connected, or your PC, or your xbox... If you were this worried about being hacked you wouldn't connect anything - in fact you just wouldn't have a network.

Got a very basic thermostat that can just be set on and off at certain times no smart management or WiFi. Are these worth getting? The way they learn and manage your heating sounds like it could save quite a bit over time if effective.

​Yeah just from following the Netatmo support forums it's looking like February currently altho as I understand it there's no official word

this, because you can use the thermostat anywhere without connecting it to the power socket. had mine for over 4 months and the batteries are still showing 75%
