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 -

    Upgraded a few weeks ago when we did the new boiler and this system is just brilliant!

    Same as most other people. Working fine, install new update, now can't even log in. Waste of time. Tried reinstall but still nothing. Update: Still rubbish after update. Can't log in. Just get the 'oops something went wrong please try again' error, which sometimes loops 4 or 5 times. Yes my email is correct as is my password.

    Can never connect to the receiver so whole thing is pointless.

    The idea is a good one, it does continue to make me scratch my head why there is no 1 hour heating boost. Many many users calling for this function and it's never addressed. The app will often stick whilst loading, in fact it happens a lot. Sadly the system is best described as good when it works.

    Works well, nice app - occasionally takes a while to update though. Support is very good via Twitter

    Using for property 100 miles away. Worked fine for last 12 months. Have not been able to log in for a month. 200 mile round trip required to manual reset. Why the sudden problems???
