Drayton Digistat +3RF Room Thermostat
I bought this product to replace the +2RF which failed afte 5years. It was fitted in minutes and was very easy to programme. The price seems reasonable.

Replaces Worcester badged
I have a Worcester-Bosch boiler fitted with non programmable Digistat wireless unit which has been troublesome. Poor signal strength. It has an integral RF receiver/programmer which turns out to be compatible with the much better Digistat+3RF. You pair it up by setting the boiler integral controller to learn mode and put batteries in the stat. If you want continuous transmission to check signal strength (which is loads better), power up while holding the + button. Shame Screwfix don't sell the stat separately as you don't need the Drayton receiver supplied. Sell it.
As a programmable stat I think it's brilliant, very close temperature control at whichever of the six separate temps you programme in. Six separate temperatures for each of 7 separate days. The control panel can be locked to prevent accidental changing also by leaving the boiler switched to on I can control without going outside to the garage and over ride timer settings.
My CH used to be noisy as it switched on and off, the temperature varied and the pipes creaked. Not any more.

Great bit of kit
My boiler (a Bosch Junior) had a mechanical timer and no room stat. Radiators had TRV's fitted but lack of sensible timer and ability to control house temp for different times of the week were a problem.
The Drayton Digistat allows you to set house temperatures for different parts of the day. It is not a on/off timer, instead you set the temp you need for your needs throughout the day and night. This is great because when it gets really cold outside at night the Digistat will call for heating to maintain the temp you set for overnight comfort. It's easy to programme for each day of the week or weekday/weekend quick setup so if you work Mon-Fri and home at weekends settings can be done quickly otherwise you can programme each day seperately.
An important note, it's easy for the missus to change the immediate temp without messing up the timing settings and it reverts back to the programmed settings on the next time period... brill.
