Rated 3 out of 5 Horstmann DRT2
This was purchased as a replacement for the Control DRT that became Horstmann.
Its the same toy repackaged. DRT was slightly smaller and its only the case of the DRT2 that is larger. Its more flimsy and more complex. Hey that's progress! Not!
Would buy again on price alone.
Reliability gets one star cos its only been in a day! But it does read 21 when the other read 19. Gotta watch the heating bills now.
At least it doesn't tell the world I'm not home on the internet of things unlike some that are coming to a house near you soon! Maybe yours?

We needed a reliable thermostat for our central heating system, the one that was installed was a mechanical one, this was useless it only worked once when the heating kicked in and never worked again after that, unless we moved the stat.
We installed the Horstmann DRT2 and it works like a dream, it kicks in and out. We dont use the programmable system, we just turn it on and off as needed, but unlike its predecessor its reliable.
The price was good too and we did our homework before selecting the Hortsmann.

Perfect replacement for the old DRT thermostat which lasted more than 12 years. Has more functions in that it has 4 programmes on Saturdays and Sundays instead of 2, just like the weekdays which always had 4 programmes. When you press the override button you don't have to put in the temperature each time as it saves it from last time.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by LtColPaul Good so far
Good value for money, instructions hard work and I needed to research the wiring diagrams to ensure safe installation. Only used for 3 days so far but appears to be working as expected, reliability yet to be determined.
