Hunting for a substitute for my outdated digital thermostat that had sticky buttons and was stunned to obtain that this smart stat was not considerably additional expensive than a standard thermostat. Also obtaining that this is remarkably advisable by which?. And was incredibly straightforward to set up made a decision to get one. Swapped over in about one hour and so significantly extremely happy, but of class the accurate exam will be when the cold weather returns.

All the functionality of hive for half the price tag. . Finest value of the ‘smart’ thermostats. Relieve of installation depends on your boiler. In my situation the boiler and its upkeep guide proved incompatible, so instead than hazard it i acquired an electrician in. Almost everything else was incredibly straightforward, although my daughter observed the laptop computer centered plan editor a bit counter intuitive.

Tremendous easy to use, its really easy to set up a little bit of straightforward logic is all that’s necessary. The ‘relay’ has two wires for a continuous stay, and 2 wires that are simply just a switch to ask for heat, you could if so inclined only swap an present thermostat with this (offered you find a long lasting stay as well) or you could, like i did eliminate your outdated thermostat and aged programmer merely have the netatmo. Remembering the aged thermostat is just an on/off change, and the programmer is just an on/off switch which is all your replacing two on/off switches with netatmo as an on/off change. My recommendation would be download the wiring diagram of your existing thermostat and programmer, on my 2 channel programmer terminal 4 went to the thermostat which then connected to the mid portion valve, so when heating was asked for a dwell mains link was handed from terminal four of the programmer into the thermostat then on to the white wire of the mid part valve hence requesting warmth. To swap this set up, which is in all probability relatively standard on a old model thoroughly pumped heating/hot water system, i just wired just one of the netatmo ‘switch’ wires into permanent reside, the other stop straight to the white wire on the mid area valve, so bypassing the programmer and aged thermostat, still simulating the very same signal as would be provided by the previous programmer/thermostat. Now of system on a method like mine the programmer is still required to operate the very hot water, but the ‘central heating’ channel of the programmer now does very little, don’t forget to take away terminal 4 wire, as it could nevertheless provide a dwell if the central heating was accidentally activated on the programmeri’ve noticed a few of complains on other evaluation websites stating that the netatmo is a ‘volt absolutely free switching’ unit hence incompatible with systems that involve a 230v dwell, to that i say you did the appropriate factor in sending the device back again, clearly electrical power is far to challenging a factor for you to be messing about with, i signify severely if you have identified a long lasting reside resource for the netatmo you’ve by now found the dwell necessary for the swap. If you have a extra modern-day technique like a combi-boiler i would have imagined its even less difficult to wire as you do not have warm drinking water wiring to fret about, i am going to be wiring a combi-boiler netatmo next thirty day period for my mum, will report again on how effortless or complicated it is. Personally i’d get the wiring of the relay sorted right before carrying out the wifi/account set up, post wiring the rest of the setup is a doddle, there is a few of videos on youtube on how to setup the relay to your wifi, i opted to connect to my laptop computer through usb, it was seriously simple.Here are the specifications for the Netatmo smart thermostat:

  • Remote Control: Use your Netatmo Thermostat to change your home’s temperature, from your bed or from wherever you like.
  • Smart Thermostat: Your Netatmo Thermostat sets a heating schedule that follows your habits. Can be powered via microUSB ,power adapter and cable not included
  • Saving Energy: The Thermostat saves up to 25 percent of your energy consumption. ; Requirement: The Siren only works with a Netatmo Welcome camera.It needs to be installed in the same room as the Welcome camera.
  • Maximum comfort: Predicts the start of the heating periods depending on your household insulation and the temperature outside.
  • Elegant design: Minimalist design by STARCK. Five interchangeable colors supplied.

Incredibly effortless to install with a vailant combi fuel boiler. Doing the job well and the applications handy with straightforward to established up schedules. Now even have ios siri voice instructions performing by means of apple homekit method.

Simple & effective and good value. No smart learning functions as far as i can tell, but as a digital/wifi thermostat it’s great value.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Not quite as smart as it could be but still a good choice
  • Absolutely love it!
  • Well worth the effort to install,

Great does all the things you want it to. Responses to your command really rapidly.

– – easy to install from a hardware & software position of. Pros:– simple to install from a components & software program point of look at. – quick to manage & set up heating plan/timetable. – can be controlled from computer or cellular phone easily. – can be conveniently built-in into amazon echo. (minor) cons:– the real thermostat by itself is a bit around developed. Ie: a pair of refined buttons on it to boost/minimize temp, fairly than the total system rocking up and down, would have resulted in a additional ‘solid’ device imho. – if you need to use the integrated fascia plate to include any gaps/issues in the wall about the place your aged thermostat was, it can be unnecessarily major. In truth, it would have been great if they’d only bundled a lesser plate much too in case you only will need to ‘make good’ a cm or so about the new thermostat. – the software only lets 15 minute long schedules.

Neat, efficient smart thermostat. Quite easy to fit and replace old thermostat control. Easy to set up efficient program for each day of the week. Great to have remote control to change settings.

But it performs perfectly with lots of functionality and its better priced than nest. Had to exchange one, but it performs perfectly with lots of functionality and its better priced than nest.

Great idea, shame about the flaws. Its a beautiful piece of kit, well put together, and looks stylish – its just a shame that the implementation is not as well thought out as it should be, and as a result, doesn’t work for me. I own a 4 bedroomed bungalow and my boiler is situated in my garage at one end, and unfortunately the signal from radiators valves for half my radiators won’t reach to the relay which is by the boiler. Netatmo’s answer was to move the relay to the middle of the house, and then extend the cables back to my boiler – which is not really a solution. I would have thought that the radiator valves would have used mesh technology so they acted as a rely for each other so as to ensure that the signals from the furthest radiators got to the relay. I suspect that this will be a problem with any largish house, which is crazy as these are just the people who will be looking to micromanage their energy usage.

Nice item but no instructions given, took us a while to get it working correctly. The younger generation should have no trouble with it.

It’s definitely one of the most stylish thermostat on the market. I bought it to upgrade my multi-zone thermostat, so the installation was easy enough and didn’t have to go through the cabling with the boiler, and didn’t have to ask the customer support for it. Though i’m not highly competent with diy and not a qualified electrician, but i managed to installed it myself using their instructions provided in the box. The reason i’m not using it as the main controller is just because it doesn’t control the hot water. Otherwise i would’ve liked it everywhere in my house just because it looks fabulous on the wall. The user interface is simple both on the device and the app. Just like some conventional thermostat, you can program it to suit your routine but now you can control it remotely and through homekit and alexa. And you have the ability to switch it “off”, whilst most other smart thermostats are “always-on” type. But that’s depending on your liking.

I’m absolutely useless at diy but managed to fit this very quickly. Works a treat and the software sends you a monthly report via email detailing your consumption. If you are not coming home and staying out unexpectedly you can switch off your heating via a smartphone app and save energy.

Definitely worth the money. . Despite all the negative reviews on-line this is a really excellent piece of kit. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Fitted by myself in less than 30 minutes even got the colour cables the correct way round and switched it on and the rest was done by the unit.

Very easy to install with a vaillant ecotec boiler – just four wires. Painful to get all the software working.

Absolutely love this product, the ability to control from the phone was why i bought it for but the surprising thing is just how well it controls the temperature so accurately and intelligently, for example if the temperature is 21c and you want it up to 22c and the outside temperature is high then it will only switch on the heating at a low level so that it does not overshoot. Once set it’s normally plus or minus 0. It takes the outside temperature from my netatmo weather station which is fantastic feature that i like. A product that actually exceeded my expectations.

Not quite as smart as it could be but still a good choice. I have been researching these for some time now and until recently were, like most other “smart” thermostats relatively expensive, with the recent price drop i decided to try one, i selected the netatmo because it could be used as a direct replacement for my existing danfoss thermostat. The unit comes nicely presented and boxed with everything required to replace your existing thermostat or to install as a new thermostat,in my case i replaced a existing wired thermostat. Fitting took around thirty minutes and was very straightforward as my existing thermostat was battery powered as is the netatmo, so there were only the two signal wires to change (no power cables) inside the backplate there is a small black connector block with a white cover held by a single screw, remove this screw and the cover lifts off the connector block can be lifted clear this makes fitting the wires much easier, reassemble secure the backplate, install the batteries in the thermostat and fit to the backplate, put the power back on and test. In my case it worked first time. So why only four stars, well although this comes with a stand to allow mobile use, unless i missed something if you use the stand there is no cover plate for the backplate which seems odd as no one would want the exposed backplate on show. Although this is a “smart” thermostat my old thermostat had the ability to set multiple timings and temperatures for each day which so far i have been unable to do with the netatmo, and because the mains adapter is multi functional when fitted with the uk plug connector it sticks out from the wall some 49mm. For my situation any competent person should be able to carry out the installation without any problem, for other situations you may want to pay extra for a professional installation.

Complicated but worth the hassle. Whilst i was a bit skeptical of this thermostat versus some of it’s competitors, it has proven to be a good investment. Installation was not that straight forward, partially due to the lack of any detail in the instructions booklets (there is a forum where you can ask questions but it proved to be a bit useless), and partially down to having an external oil fueled combi boiler. Once everything was wired in correctly (remember to triple check everything) i attempted to set the connection up to the internet to the relay part of this thermostat using the android app but it kept getting stuck in a loop updating the firmware. I decided to try using an ipad pro to set it up instead, and everything worked well, and i have been able to reconnect using the android app since the firmware updated. The app part is quite simple to use but is quite powerful as it learns how your house heats up and cools down. 2 weeks but in the meantime works along side what ever programming you set. The part of the thermostat that lives in the house is actually quite neat as well, and has an e-ink screen, which means that batteries should last a while. I can quite recommend this product.

Works extremely well, support not the best. . I have been running this now for nearly 3 months. Initial set up was fine, though it’s not for the faint hearted i would suggest, relies too much on wiring colour codes in the instructions but if you know how your system works it’s pretty easy to work out once you realise what all the bits do. I had a problem in that my central heating system decided to play up just at the time i installed this, took me some time to work this out as i was away from home a lot and my wife was not impressed.Finally discovered it was a motorised valve that was playing up intermittently, this meant that the boiler would not come on sometimes, but dropping the set point and raising it again usually sorted it as it forced the valve to close and open again. Now that this is sorted, heating controls to within plus or minus 0. Also prediction is very good and means the house is warm when you want it to be based on outside temp. I don’t believe the energy savings, in fact i think we are using more because of the prediction. I think they base their savings on comparing against a system with no timer.

Installed this myself about 4 months ago. We have an oil boiler in an external porch and the netatmo wifi module has had no problem from there connecting to my router and to the thermostat itself which are both a way off and through several solid (breeze block) walls. The app is excellent and very simple to read and use on mobile or tablet, i have it on both. It’s definitely saving me money, turns the boiler on and off correctly according to temperature, only minor problem once was a power cut where it had trouble finding the router again but it did sort itself out eventually, i think it just takes longer than expected after a disconnect. Very easy to set up as many time zones and temperatures as you’d like on the app. It would be nice if you could set temperatures by decimal points rather than a full half a degree each time, other than that it’s been great. Much cheaper than a hive and much better looking in my opinion. I got it on offer with an echo dot but have not connected the 2 so can’t review from that point of view.

An excellent smart thermostat. I bought this to put in place of a wall mounted roomstat and have been most impressed. It was relatively straightforward to fit – there were two wires to my existing roomstat that weren’t needed but i had it up and running and connected to the internet within 30 minutes or so. I had no particular problems with the wifi connection although i was at first a little bit too impatient when the device was trying to connect to the wifi – it took a few minutes to do so. The app is very good and i’ve had no problem connecting to the netatmo from my mobile phone.

This product is so good, i purchased two. It works well giving me control of the boilers in my home at the tap of the screen of my smart phone. Installation of the first thermostat was problematic as i could not connect the relay to the app on the phone, but then i discovered the easy fix of connecting the relay to a laptop with a usb cable, downloading a small software from the netatmo website, then running the software and it all worked fine in the end.
