Here’s what others think:

Rather than twiddling the thermostat like someone’s dad in the 1980s, you twiddle with the thermostat via a smart-looking app, like someone’s dad in 2013 -
This is designed to put heating and hot water controls in the palm of your hand rather than you having to clamber in a dark cupboard to change them -

    I agree with a reviewer, since the last update my app isn't working like it should. Will not stay at the temperature I set. Returns to 10, 20, 30.

    Personally I think this needs more than 3 "time slots". I might want it on at 0245 to 0330 just to lose the chill and then again at 0630 until 0745 just before I go to work. Nothing until 1600 then 1630 to 1800 and maybe 2145 until 2300. Probably needs to act more like a controller, rather than a thermostat. Had I known it would be this simple and non-functional I probably wouldn't have got it. Ho

    Works well for me. It's very slow to load though, would be nice to be able to set the temperature for example and not have to wait for it to connect first. Also a single view to set hot water and heating would be great rather than navigating via side menus between the two. Finally, a widget or two showing some general info would be nice.

    This is a really handy system. One thing I suggest is to have the ability to boost heating for and hour. At present you can only boost water.

    Works great but latest update has caused problem with quick short cuts to temps to reset back to 10'20' and 30c.if you adjust them and restart the app they reset back. Needs fixing.
