Versatile room thermostat
This is the third one I have put in various family members homes. Easy to install, 7 day programmer allows temperature to be set at different times of the day and different days. I use it to put temp up just before getting up, reduce it when we go to work, back up for evening and down when going to bed. Different settings for weekend. Simple to use with override button when needed. I've had the original one for 4 years with no hassles. Supplied batteries lasted over 3 years.

I have underfloor heating downstairs and rads up and was looking for something to replace the 2 Honeywell analogue stats I had, I looked at the Honeywell direct replacement before deciding on these ones, not least because I could buy these two for the price of one Honeywell model. I also read the reviews here and was impressed with what people were saying,
Set up with the boiler always on I can control the underfloor heating by the new room stat, This is also on all the time except for the short periods of the day when the hot water fires up, I have notice already that the underfloor has only fired very infrequently as a constant temperature has been much easier to maintain.
The upstairs rads are set up to come on 15 minutes before we get up and go off at the time the last of us usually takes a shower, As these times vary due to days of in the week and weekends the 7 day programmer is excellent.
The only reason I have slightly marked down reliability is, as others have said, only time will tell, So far I am very pleased with my purchase.
