Pegler Terrier i-temp i30 Programmable Thermostatic Radiator Valve
I-Temp - good in parts
Over the last three years I have replaced all the wax filled radiator thermostats in our house with Pegler I-Temp ones.
They have enabled the house to be much more comfortable, with rooms heated at the appropriate times. They have saved substantially on our heating bills.
However, they are nowhere near perfect. Two of the eleven I have purchased have failed in the period. They chew through batteries. A couple are a little noisy. And while they can be programmed from a PC, they cannot be controlled remotely. I.e. you can set them up with a PC but you cannot control them in real time. In the age of the smart home, this is disappointing.
On balance, would I recommend them - Yes.

This valve is total rubbish.
Won't set and keeps telling me the valve is sluggish.
Total waste of an evening trying to set up.
Avoid at all cost.
Buy a manual valve.

Too Complicated & Unreliable
I've bought two items over a 26 month period and both failed after 13 months.
Far too complicated with set backs and holiday periods.
All I want to do is set it to automatic then have a separate button to switch between manual and automatic.
Presently to switch to manual you have to press a sequence of buttons that would confuse Einstein.
Back to manual TRVs for me.
