I’ve gone for a Hive for a couple of reasons
- I didn’t want something that “learned my schedule” as I want to control solely from my phone rather than set a schedule
- wanted something I could easily add light bulbs to and control them when I’m away from home
- needed it installed quickly and professionally as the house is in a small town and finding an electrician there at short notice is a nightmare

I will only need one thermostat right? not for each room type of thing..
You really only need one thermostat - unless you have more than one heating zones (valves).

You can now get smart TRV valves for radiators - but i think this is going over the top and applying technology where there is no real benefit or need. A standard TRV should suffice as they control they provide is limited as they are measuring temperature very close to the radiator.

The thermostat should be in the room you use the most or mobile (wireless) so that you can carry it around with you from room to room.
