Sheeple.....!
Smart?

I asked mine, "What's ten minus seven?" and it said nothing!

That's not smart as I believe the answer may be three!
i love my tado ive had it for a year no problems at all
Had my tado for more than two years now without any problems other than those caused by my own stupidity.

They have great customer support.
absolutely brilliant bit of kit. I've got both the thermostat and extension kit and so far so good.

really easy to fit yourself if your half competent with a screw driver and the online instructions can't be faulted. a couple of support calls I've raised have been dealt with well too.
I'm a Hive man myself. Still this is a good price, heat.
ive had this since it launched in the UK in fact i waited about 4 months to get the V1 box which was great but I upgraded to the V2 and extension kit so I could still control my hot water. Works really well, they listen to the community and improve the app with the features users ask for. I am a Beta tester and the next version of the app is fantastic. No way I would be without this, I know people who have Hive and nest and this is so much better than them both.
Isn't this the same price in Currys?
Same price at Curry's, if anyone wanted an extra "challenge"
Why this over Hive?
Comparing the nest and hive just now...will take a look at this and see how it compares!

What's coming?
Does the proximity thing work? I've heard mixed reviews
This is a deal site for people looking after the pennies, how can it be a good thing to put your heating on when you're not at home, are your bills not massive enough?
I think this a gimmick with a catchy advert to make it look good and sell something nobody needs.
Doesn't look anywhere as snazzy as the nest
can you control hot water without the extension kit with v2?

It learns when to put the heating at the mos efficient time. It knows when you aren't home and avoids heating then
Does this take 128GB SDXC cards, look a good cheap phone. Much better than an iphone.

Did you not read the marketing blurb: "Saves an average of 26% on heating costs and reduces CO2 emissions." Pulled that phrase off the intertat so it must be true, surely?
Tado Hive and nest These devices have a by product and that is data. Hive and nest sell their data to others. Tado doesn't. We fit these on all of our installed heating system and I'm currently changing everyone I speak to who is out of their house more that in it.

The saving (to us) when we fitted the thermostat and extension kit has been a game changer in regards to saving money.

No brainer
hmmm...big problem is that it requires you not to only have to use an app to control, it also requires you to be connected to the cloud, ie internet. No local controls is a massive downer. I don't want to have to use an app every single time.

Data Controller is based in Germany, not UK. I don't much like the concept of my movements away from home (leaving it more readily open to theft) being known by a 3rd party, especially one not obligated to UK DP requirements. I wouldn't like to have a post-theft conversation with an insurer where I was obliged to say that I had a 3rd party system that monitored when I was not at home, regardless of data security / DP claims by the system operator . Not so much of a no brainer.
Not voted either way. May be a good deal price-wise but got quite a few negative reviews around customer service but more importantly around the issue of having no control if it loses internet connectivity.
You can also consider installing the Salus set. I've been using this for 2 months now and it's decent. Purchased for 117 (the controller, the receiver and the Internet gateway). The mobile app could be much better but other than this it does what it should which is controlling the heat. I installed the receiver in the boiler myself, very easy.
Note from the manufacturer:
Designed to fit into the front of the most popular combination boilers in the UK, the SALUS boiler module simply connects via Radio Frequency (RF) to the remote iT500 thermostat unit and the gateway, which provides internet capability.

I have the same one and installed it myself, wouldn't be without it. Very reliable. Had mine for two years and works incredibly well. Simple to install too and sold at a competitive price circa £120.

Flubit will allegedly well for £137

Isn't this the same price in Currys?



Never buy anything from those **** holes....ever

4 stars for Currys? 4 out of 5 is a strong recommendation
don't get these, why so expensive? Surely it's just an on/off switch that's prompted by a temperature message from a WiFi signal ? Even if it has an internal temp detector they're not expensive, why are these not £20 tops?
Does this require an 'extra' unit to be connected to your router ?

As I understand it a few months ago, only the Nest unit had WiFi built into the thermostat so in essence it was a self contained unit. I know that the British Gas offering (Hive) requires a physical unit to be sited close to your router ...

As I'm all for reducing 'clutter' in the house, my favourite unit is still the Nest ..

For the same reason an iPhone isn't just over £134 (reported cost to build). Have a think about it.
I've had one of these now for almost a year and I think that it's great. I really like how it senses where you are and heats the house accordingly, rather than heating the house at set times.
Wow, it astonishes me how often people comment on here about something they clearly know nothing about. I have this and its easilly one of the best purchases I've made this year. FYI, it uses geofencing so it knows when you/your relatives are out the home using the GPS on your phone (and uses very minimal battery if anything at all). It knows how far away you are and learns how long you take to get home, so the house can be at the perfect temp for returning (you can change this from comfort to economy etc so it doesn't heat too early). The customer service is excellent - you get straight through to an actual person right away. It CAN be controlled manually using the touch controls (long hold button and then press +/- to override). And if you find you aren't keen on the whole smart thermostat thing then you can, if you really want to, put times in it via the app and turn geofencing off. Setup is seamless - in the online instructions you put the make and model of existing thermostat, boiler etc and it tells you where to put each wires when reconnecting. So it simply replaces your existing thermostat (fits onto a standard backbox too) and a tiny box gets plugged into the router. I got it for £144.99 off Amazon in October. This deal isnt the cheapest its been but well worth it in my opinion. If not just for saving money but also for the convenience of having the house hot when you want it to be, especially if you're out and returning at irregular times.

I think if you are replacing a wired thermostat, you won't need yhe extra unit.
If your current thermostat is wireless, then you'll need the extra unit afaik
Got one of these and it is amazing, BUT if your thermostat currently isn't wired then you'll probably want the wireless extender, which is an additional £80.
I have a separate water tank, does this do heating and water in the same way that Hive does?
I used tado for a year. good device, great support but couple of issues. replaced it with the 3rd gen Nest this week. says it all.
