I got one a couple of weeks ago when they were £99 and mine is fab! Doable to install yourself if you can use a screwdriver and know where your circuit breaker is 💪🏼
Why would you want to control your heating from anywhere I just don't see the point of these.

I have one, it's nice to sit in bed and be able to control the heat without having to go downstairs to where my manual thermostat used to be and change it. It's also nice when say out and about and we're on our way home, we can make sure the house is up to temperature by the time we get home.

Is it needed ? no
Is it useful? yes

Useful if returning home and you're cold - e.g. a kid's Sunday league match in the driving rain. Put the heating on as you come back and the house is toasty when you get back.
The main function of these is the geofencing which turns your heating off if you're not home - works well for people on irregular work patterns.
How long before these come free in a box of corn flakes?
Any benefit over the others that amazon sells for between 30 to 50 quid? Genuine question, I've got a combi boiler with a wired thermostat. Really I just want to be able to turn the heating off when I leave the house, using my phone. The geofencing sounds good, but probably not worth 3 quid a month.

This one seems fairly basic, needs an app.

And this one supports all the Alexa/ifttt stuff.

Why am I paying double for tado?

You’ll end up paying more than double when you get sucked down the rabbit hole of buying the TRV’s to control radiators manually...

Once you pop!
Voted hot, good price. Got my V2 a year ago on sale down to £40, was such a great deal.
I have a Drayton MiGenie and yes, the control via t'internet seemed a bit of a pointless luxury. True, for most of the time it is but when you factor in things like staying with the kids for a day that turns into a long weekend, or are away on some other errand that has a very elastic time frame, its not a bad idea.

Had a long holiday abroad with family and was able to allow for delayed flights back home - just logged on at the airport and by the time I was home, the place was warming up nicely.

Similarly, if you're away with the heating off anyway and the weather takes a turn for the cooler, you can reach out and kick it to life.
It also allowed me to check that the heating had, indeed been turned off when we let one of our married offspring use our house for a night or two whilst we were away.

So yes, day-to-day not much use however potentially useful from time to time.
I can forsee more useful features if linked to something like IFTTT - maybe start the daytime heating earlier if the night has been particularly cold, etc.
I currently got two clasic digital thermostats one controling downstairs and one in the master bedroom upsairs. Is it possible to replace them with two of these without to much fuff ?
As the OP mentioned the Auto Assist is an optional £2.99 a month. However, without paying the £2.99 a month I believe all of the useful Smart features are not usable e.g. Geofencing (auto-away), etc which is why most people would buy this anyway. If this is the case Nest or Hive products are a better choice as the smart features are not on a monthly subscription with these.

True! I think standalone its useful. But with the radiator valves is more a game changer, but expensive! They can however pay for themselves.
We've got evohome home and never have more that 2 rads on at anyone time.
Still experimenting, as I'm wondering whether having just two rads on based on which rooms we're in causes cold spots which makes the boiler have to work harder.
But I love my evohome, I think it's saving me a small fortune and the fact I can put the heating on in whichever room I want, whenever I want for as long as I want, from anywhere in the world is great (usually 2 metres away from control module via my app...!)

Agreed, I think any of the smart heating systems become very useful when you have the smart TRVs too. I've got Tado and I never really even considered the internet control as a benefit - the main benefits come from having TRVs that can individually call for heat. It allows perfect temperature control in every room.

Nest don't currently offer TRVs though, and Hive's are very poor. If you want smart TRVs too, then your best bets are Tado, Evohome, Wiser or Netatmo.

Agreed. The only real way of making your home heating 'smart' is zoning with any of the above. Anything else is just basically playing at it because without zoning you aren't getting rid of the inherent problem with home heating systems - either the whole house is on or the whole house is off. It's akin to having just the one light switch in your house and who in their right mind would do that?

We had evohome installed when we moved into our bungalow almost 6 years ago and it's performed faultlessly ever since. The main reason we went with evohome is basically it's made by a 150 billion dollar company (Honeywell) who actually invented the thermostat in 1886 so it's rock solid plus at the time start ups like Nest, Hive and Tado hadn't gone down the multi TRV route. These sort of (multi smart TRV) systems are expensive and I wanted the security of going with a company I knew would be there for my lifetime at least or I would risk wasting all the money spent. I also fully suspect bringing this sort of product to market and making a real go of it is very very expensive (something tado must have realised) but I'm suspecting Honeywell have never had to go to market for funding to develop/market evohome. Reassuring.

It would seem weird going back to the 'old' one heating switch/thermostat now. In fact, if we ever move again, evohome is coming with us.

Thanks for the effort both of explaining I will check this system out

Ridiculous statement. For many reasons = to warm your house before you get there. To not have to go to the thermostat to adjust your heating. It also has cool features where it'll heat your house once it senses that you're getting closer to home and every month it gives you a performance report showing how much you've saved by being able to adjust the heating (and hot water) to your needs. Oh, and the thermostat looks cool on your wall as opposed to the generic analogue thermostats.
