Drayton Digistat + Room Thermostat
First one didn't work, stuck on 22 degrees so house way too hot. Second still didn't programme in correctly despite numerous attempts but seems to work a bit despite various error leds. Battery holder very flimsy for this much money and very easy to miss the connections. Whole timing system of central heating systems seems stuck way back in the past and this is another outdated bit of tech.

Wouldn't buy this if I knew you had to replace the batteries I have recently added this thermostat to my heating & within 3-4weeks batteries need replacing already.not good if you are away & come back to a cold house.make sure you replace the batteries if going away & keep a top up of heavy duty AA.

Easy to fit and use
Simple to fit on a two- or three- wire installation ("parking" terminals provided for neutral and earth). Very easy to operate, just one big knob to click round for temperature setting and a big button in the middle of the knob to set and activate setback temperature. LCD display is a bit small, and the "demand" icon is hard to see (no indicator light). Temperature display on mine overstates by 1-2 degrees C, and there's no way to adjust it, I just had to compensate by setting the preset temperature higher, but it does keep the temperature stable. NB when the batteries run down it won't switch on, so if you're planning a fortnight's winter break leaving the heating on, change the batteries first to be on the safe side.

Digital room thermostat
I bought this item to replace a similar one that was past it's sell by date. It is handy in as much that you can use it free standing and therefore you can you it in any room to control the temperature. I would definitely recommend screwfix and this item to my friends.
