As a deal and money off the usual price, hot. As a general comment though, this market is being gouged, much too expensive for what it is, a temp sensor and small radio in a box, £40 would be fairer. Obv I'm grumpy today.
All Thermostat Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2019
Looks like they're all gone :(
Bought it anyway lol
Mate I am the same......
Damn what am I going to do with a spare one
Hi, I’ve researched hive but not nest. Does this come with all wireless interfaces needed to setup or are there any additional purchases required please?
Been waiting for this sort of price. Thanks OP. Also to the above saying about the Alexa integration does Ifttt not work with it? https://ifttt.com/nest_thermostat
They're removing API access so I wouldn't bother with Nest anymore if you want it to integrate with anything that isn't Google
Taken from Nest site In Europe, Amazon Alexa does not support Nest Thermostat E, but it does support the 2nd and 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat
It does work with Alexa, a have few at home and works. Edit: I have 2nd and 3rd gen.
A big no to V3+, good PR stunt though. I'm sure there's no option to downgrade either. Tado is good but cold from me.
It’s only for Smart AC Controller v1 and v2 customers
Not free for me either, you would of thought it would of been advertised through twitter etc, if it was free for a limited time.
Not free for me
isn't showing as free for me, and I use all of those features (bar geofence) so no "upgrade" for me
I took a half day holiday to wait in. Was offered a free hive light bulb quite insulting really. Won't get that holiday back do complained they then offered £30 which I'm still waiting on a bit like installation
I had exactly the same thing happen to me.
British Gas customers can get a better deal, as this post doesn't include installation. British Gas are doing this with a 40% off code valid until 31/8/19 with professional installation. That works out at £149 installed... and includes is a FREE Echo Dot (3rd Generation).
Maybe because it doesn't include installation?
how is it cold? This is the cheapest at the moment !
If you find there's a difference then you can just use the built in offset function to correct it.
In case it helps anyone. I ordered some just over a week ago (with the same lead time - 1-2 months) and today I got an email saying that they're coming on Monday. So maybe you'll get them quicker too.
Could also be the fact that Hive are releasing their own TRV’s next week so the increased competition is driving costs down :)
What they need to do is release an external temp sensor to use with them Sas the one in these sits too close to the rad. Nest did something similar.
Summer on the way :) (so clearing the stock as main demand is closer to heating season) In terms of potential new version - not quite sure, what can be changed...
With Tado you can control from anywhere, I can turn the heating on when leaving work. Like I say the subscription only adds the auto geofencing feature. Without you have to go in to the app and select away mode. Tado is really good, if you do decide to go for a smart thermostat then definitely consider it. The main thing about smart controls when at home in convenience. Been able to turn the heating up or down (using phone or voice) whist in bed on a Sunday morning and not having to get out of bed and go downstairs is a little luxury :D Appreciate your considered response
Dont apologise! If you know better then say it m8. Only way we'll learn and get better & smarter For me if I have a smart home, then I would like to connect where ever I am, Im kinda struggling to understand using smart devices when Im at home! I can get up and switch the lights on, I can get up and adjust the heating etc. Thus, if a smart device requires a subscription to use, such as this I believe that I have 2 subscribe to use the feature when Im not at home then that it leaves a bad taste for me - dont even get me started on Ring Cheers for the update/info - good read but using whilst away is crucial for me
Just to add to the confusion for those following along - you can also get a Tado TRV Starter Kit. This is the internet bridge and a couple of TRVs. In my opinion this is nowhere near as good as the normal Tado Starter Kit because the rads can't call for heat.
Will try and break things down; Bridge = links Tado devices to the internet so you can control your heating via Tado. Smart valve (like these) - fits on top your TRV valve. Add device to your Tado account and set your temperature of your room. Valve will open and close the valve depending on the temp you want. Smart Thermostat - Add to your Tado account as a wall control that can replace your existing thermostat. This can provide a fully automated system and can be used alongside valves. Can also be installed where no thermostat is. Extension kit - don’t have a thermostat or want it moved? This can fit in existing thermostat place or next to your boiler. Links all devices together and lets them control your boiler, whilst adding other options. Maybe you have a timer system? That can replace that too. Want hot water control? This will do that. Combi Boiler? You may be able control water preheat function on a schedule etc. V3+ Subscription - a OPTIONAL monthly fee for new customers getting V3+ bridge. This automates 2 functions; open window detection and Home/Away; Home/Away Mode - When you leave home it can use your smart device to detect this and turn heating off, or back on as you get close to home. Without the subscription, a notification is sent and you must select it. Having the sub does it automatically Open window detection - if Tado detects a window open in a room it will temporarily stop heating that room. Without a subscription, this is a notification. With a subscription, it is automatic. IFTTT - A free service that you can use to bring all those paid for features to you free of charge with just a couple of minutes setup. Tado support it. Homekit - Got Apple Homekit? You can do those automated things without a sub too. Alexa - yep, you can do that without a sub too. Just want one room at night with a maintained temp? That valve will turn on and call for heat. The others will close to stop any other heat coming in.
No, the bridge is actually a device that connects to your router for internet connectivity. A starter kit contains a bridge and the thermostat. the tado thermostat needs to be wired directly to your boiler which allows you to either use it directly by pressing on it to change the temp or allows you to use the tado app. From there your TRV's then tell the tado thermo to turn the boiler on/off when needed. You can however buy an extension kit which connects directly to the boiler instead of the thermostat, allowing you to use the thermostat as a wireless one similar to your current one.
Thanks for reply. Will try it. If not will get a heating guy to come take a look.
^ Doesn't have kids. Eats only baked beans on toast. Lives in a cold house. Student life is forever lol
Your rads are poorly balanced. Presumably these 2 rads are last in the system before the water gets back to the boiler. Turn all the rads before them down ever so slightly and then check again. Once you're in a position where they all get as warm as each other then you have properly balanced the rads. Nb. the ones closest the boiler will still get hot first- so don't turn the system on then check straight away, make sure the whole system is running for a while before adjusting. I wasn't aware that Tado could zone. Was just about to push the button on £900 of Evohome, so grateful to find this out now. Will check in more detail.
They come with a range of adaptors to suit most current fitted valves. I think you’ll find a list on the Tado website.
I completely see where you're coming from. To be honest, we stopped using the Automatic schedule as it used far more energy. Our house is an old one with different parts built on. The boiler is inconveniently located for boosting and we don't have a wired thermostat. Two kids under 4 and one is in a bit that insulation is pretty bad. My wife is also a newborn photographer and uses our converted garage. Purely having control over the individual rooms and being able to set minimum temperatures has been a god send without needlessly heating parts of the house we don't need heated at other times. Plus we can switch rooms off entirely without having to go to the room. Is it necessary? Not really. Has it been helpful? Oh god yes. This is an excellent price....and the last point after having tried Hive, Nest, Honeywell and Drayton, the wireless is exceptional. It builds its own mesh and doesn't need boosters. It's the only system that has worked straight out of the box and apart from a problem with the hot water booster which was quickly solved by support...it *touch wood* has had only a couple of missteps in the two years we've had them....oh and even if the kids change the settings like they could do with standard thermostatic heads, you can set them to switch back after a predetermined time and not get caught out that way..our living room has two radiators that switch back after 1 minute of being twisted mercilessly.
Great, thanks. Now I've just spent £500 on a complete Tado setup. 8)
Hive has nothing on Tado regarding features and Hive is ugly. This is a cracking deal. Going to do the whole house now.
Had Tado support non existent. Three weeks between responses. Now on hive and with the new radiator thermostat, best decision.
Cracking first deal @Heliz ... Nice one, have some heat. (y)
I need to so some research on these. I want to buy them but not even sure if I need them 😁
That's great thank you.
Two running £145 spend for £10 and £45 for £5 https://www.vouchercodes.co.uk/amazon.co.uk?rc=5831421
I can’t see the code for £5/£10 off. Is there a direct link?
Not too bad if you need more than one, and especially if you still have voucher codes to claim
To update, I did need a transformer I went with the plugin one that someone else has commented it was £15.99 on amazon and I just wired it direct to the wires in my chime and disconnected the chime. I have google homes in most rooms and they work better than my old chime. Its been running 24 hours now works great wish id bought one sooner. Infact im so impressed i would definitely consider the nest cams when my current cctv cams die.
Mine is fine. No idea what your talking about
Do not buy doorbell if you have an iPhone as the alert you can not change and you do not hear it. Nest are aware and dont care.
With google event this week, I’m hoping discounts galore on some of the older products.
No longer available.
You don't need the subscription. V3 bridges available by the looks of it on Amazon and BT in the 2 x radiator values plus bridge starter kits..
I don’t disagree tado made an awful mistake of going about introducing this subscription. Badly worded press releases and poorly demonstrated, but miseducated users (I assume you use tado) that keep regurgitating info without knowing the facts does not help. Auto Assist is a feature that WORKS WITH (perhaps even enhances?) Geofencing and Open Window Detection. I (can) utilise Geofencing and Open Window (though I disable it because any sneeze and you trigger it), without Auto Assist.
Great price, thanks!
Tado announced a new subscription package dubbed 'Auto Assist'. Costing £2.99 a month or £24.99 annually, this subscription includes the following features: Automatic adjustment of heating based on user geo-location Open window detection Weather adaptation If these features sound familiar, it's because these are the core features of Tado (especially that first one) that existing users already enjoy for no fee. google.com/amp/s/www.newhometricks.com/blog/2018/10/4/is-tado-still-worth-it%3fformat=amp So yes, they were features that were removed in the latest version wrapped in a new name called auto assist.
I don’t pay a subscription and I don’t get hassled to upgrade
I looked at the Honeywell system, but as I'm in a 2 bed flat, by myself, decided it was going to be expensive overkill for me. In a larger house, yeah, I'd have gone for it. But on my own in the flat, the Netatmo is fine. Better for getting their weather station too and linking the heating to it. Can't get more accurate than a system that also factors in the weather conditions outside your house! (And knows how the heating system will need to respond accordingly) What I'm curious about, is why the switch to EvoHome? When I looked into it, it was going to cost me over £600 to install it and have controls on every rad in a 2 bed flat. So I went with Netatmo (cost way less then £100 on an Amazon Lightning Deal - installed it myself). Who have since released individual radiator controllers. So I'm just wondering what you didn't like about the Netatmo that made you ditch it and replace it rather than extend it. I've been very happy with it!
I have 14 rads (and a Tado room thermostat) would love these but can't justify spending that much money!
I was all set to go with nest but I'm now tempted by tado. But if I'm honest I don't really trust tado after adding their subscription service. They forced everyone into subscription, then changed their policy for existing customers after resistance. But what's to say they won't revoke the one time payment and force customers back into a subscription. They done it once why not again. I mean there obviously looking out for their pockets rather than new customers adding the different policies. And their subscription price is only really going to go 1 way.. Scrap that can't find the v3 starter kit anywhere other than ebay (no warranty so not worth it) - and v3+ has the subscription so again not worth it. Evo home or back to nest for me i think.
Hardly. Tbh this is only medium term, I think in room individual electric radiators will replace all these wet heating systems in the next generation, just because there will be a push to move away from fossil fuel heating.
Tbh this isn't that expensive at all. A standard trv is at least £20. The question is reliability, and having to put power to all these additional devices.
The quattro pack of radiator valves is out of stock at Amazon but is also 179 and in stock at ao.com last I checked yesterday
Looks like this has expired coming up as £119.98
says vertical but the pictures are horizontal? hmm
Wish I had gone down this route instead of Nest...
Worth noting 20% 4 pack atm.
You obviously do not understand how the system works
Couldn't agree more, but not exactly expensive at 35 to save a little money and save a little bit of the planet too.
At £35 per thermostat, this is not money saving. I got some programmable thermostats for about £10 each from Conrad (German equivalent of Maplin) a couple of years ago. Out of 12 thermostats in the house, there are only about 2 or 3 where I might get some benefit from a programmable stat. Then only if it costs about £10, so there is a chance of a payback.
There’s a few available in the market place. Used like new. With 20% they come down to £30. I’ve had a few in the past. Only had a problem with 1 out of 3 I’ve bought and amazon were quick to refund.
Unfortunately only one. Maybe ask a close family/friends to order some for you?
Expired - now higher price
It’s in this booklet. I’ve already had mine installed so code is now void.
Let me know if you want me to photograph mine. It might well be missing if it’s an open box so you’ll have to get back on to Amazon for a refund.
I'll check again but pretty sure it wasn't there.
It’s in a little red booklet separate to the instructions.
I've got this and happy with it so far
I used one of these for both my kids and it was great. Good price too.
That comment says more about you ;)
Most useless product I bought
Nice find, temperature should go hot!!!
The v3+ app doesn’t enforce the sub. I assume v2/v3 app is the same. The benefits the v3+ app has over the v2/v3 (when not opting to subscribe) is that the UI is vastly nicer.
Ive just installed the Tado with the V2 app - it's great, can't beat it. Can't see any reason why I'd upgrade to the v3 app and pay a subscription when this currently does exactly what I want anyway.
Hi Kyrt, how much are you asking for it
Had Tado for a few years now - it's awesome..
I have a spare V3+ bridge if anyone needs one
I meant hive. Autocorrect fail
Would also like to know
How does this compare to give and tado?
Is this the latest generation models?
Yep good price. Cex were doing them for £130 and can get them for £150 sealed on eBay. I installed my own hive. So I imagine that this would be similar to install. I agree if your not confident get a professional in. I think you should be able to get someone around the £60 mark.
Damn, back to £258. This was a smoking hot deal.
You don’t have to pay the subscription. Even without the subscription the features more than stack up against the other smart thermostats. The deal deal here is about this been the best price for this combo and I’ve not seen I cheaper.
Drayton Wiser is multi zone
It's a shame that they introduced a fee, because otherwise I think it's the best system of its kind. I was fortunate enough that I got it previously, so I don't have to pay a subscription fee.
You would be better off going for a Hive or any of the others. rather than pay the monthly fee to Tado which is sure to increase over time. The unit was going to be returned but is more likely to be binned. Never again.
