Review of Wireless Thermostat & Controller

Our Price: 49.50

Quick delivery, good price and it all worked - that's a good start. All working in my flat with a combi boiler. I give it 8 out of 10.

In more detail:

I particularly liked the profile concept and the display so you knew what the on/off times were for that day. I also liked the use of standard batteries and the advanced features - No Volt contacts, advance and frost protection.

Major flaw was no overide on the receiver unit. If the thermostat goes wrong you will have to move wires to get the heating to work (uses Normally Open contacts - need to close to operate boiler).

Improvements: at least 7 programmable profiles (one for each day of the week), finer timing (say 15 minute slots - not 1 hour), temperate option for each time change (can only choose eco/comf) and configuration in flash memory (not lost when batteries die). Transmitter unit could be smaller, no drop in bracket for wall mounting, poor acces to main unit (poor release catch, use battery compartment lid that also allows access to links and microswitches). Manual was ok but needs a rethink - little mention of cooler application and viewing programme settings.

Hope this helps
Howard
