Just to mention you can put these on horizontal too - the display is obviously not the right way round, but I use mine via the app 99% of the time so don’t mind. I got some last year to save me some money.
I've got the house covered with these and they're brilliant. They do occasionally drop lower than this - best time to buy is in summer
Can this be used with Nest and have zones built around the house?

No. Tado only I’m afraid

Good deal, depends if you need one or two and a bridge. Not much in it....

@Wilzia you need the Tado bridge. If you had that if then be concerned about how the valves work with an exiting other Thermostat for drawing heat. Sounds messy!
Don't TRV's do this job anyway?

Yep. But this does it all automatically, adjusting the trv pretty regularly to keep the temperature at a set figure. In theory saving money, and allowing me to sit on the sofa longer!
Is the temperature sensor in one of these accurate? I wonder how can get s good reading when it is placed an inch from a direct source of heat.

But TRV's do also. You can adjust the setting from 0 to 5 - ok, it's not a quite as easy to have to know that 3 is 20, 2 is 15, 4 is 25 but the principle remains that you control your main boiler temperature with a thermostat in the hallway set to 19-21 degrees and rads to 3 and likely you'll get the "right" temperature. You can fiddle with the TRV once to make sure it's at the right temperature and you're done.

I don't see the real value this adds.

There is still this point as well - but you just raise the temperature a bit to compensate.

I think you’re missing the point of these. It allows you to zone a house. So I can now turn heating off and on room by room on a room by room timetable that’s automated. So bedrooms off during the day. Downstairs off at night. All off when I’m out. You could achieve the same by turning trv down when you aren’t using a room... but that’s not as easy!

they've thought of that - you can apply an "offset" in the app, so if you find it "over-reports" you can apply maybe - 3c offset to bring it back down. Then set temps up & down.

Fair enough. That does add value. Perhaps not at 42 quid per rad though!

Compare with the cost of rerouting pipes to add extra zones

It is accurate, but you are right about the position. So in extreme cases you can add separate wireless thermostat for the room.

Basically, it is a question of airflow and if the TRV is not blocked by something.
