It's people like you who put the brakes on an upturn in the microelectronics sector. :tut:I need no HIVE system. I have simply tested the patience and love of my family to the limit. Now I can spend my £199 on something useful. Screwfix have a sale on.
It's a good point Tony, but, there's no getting away from the fact, it's the way all things technological are moving.What no one is thinking about is security All these smart devices are in fact more computers for the hackers to attack, there is evidence that a smart fridge was sending out spam emails

this ^^^ :thumbs:I reckon better heating and hot water control would be a bonus.
My current system is a dial stat, and a on/ off/ twice/ once system. Both hot water and heating on same 2 on/periods 7 days a week.
If I could program it for 7 days a week the routine of the house could be catered for. A new 7 day stat and control panel was quoted at over £300 by a local gas/sparky person. This Hive can be dumb and controlled by a wall panel so it'd be a saving over the other options.
