Definitely V3, and the bridge is the latest (supporting home kit). Now, I just need to find a deal on the extension and some TRVs
I should be receiving this today guys, so i can confirm if it is the same kit valued as £200 plus an echo (My 3rd). Haven't researched and not sure if i need an extension kit or not. I've just moved into a house with a BOSS therm fitted if that makes any odds
The extension kit is effectively a wireless programmer controlled by your phone. If you have a faulty programmer then this would always need replacing. The hive and nest come with the parts to replace the programmer but fitting is more complicated and engineer recommended so any cost saved would be eaten up by that. The radiator valves are very expensive though. We only have trv's on a couple of rads so for me to add these I would have to buy cheap trv's which include the compression fittings to then change the heads with the Tado trv. I would probably be looking at £70 per trv.
Not sure if it helps anyone but when I recently purchased the smart thermostat the tado website failed to mention I would need the extension kit to replace the external timer which I was having issues with. So the cost increased. I managed to pick this up from Argos at £79 so wasn’t too painful but beware. If you do have a separate timer that needs replacing you need one. Now I am waiting for the radiator trv’s to be reduced to a palatable cost so I can start to zone my heating. Good product overall and very easy to install. Excellent support from the tado team which is rare these days with many companies.
It does but you need extension kit if you want to control hot water using it. Otherwise you can just leave the old programmer to continue doing your hot water
