Rated 1 out of 5Â by chazzb Broken after 2 years
Bought and installed this product myself, wiring was quite easy and it worked perfectly for the first year.
After a year the temperature unit started chewing batteries (the first set lasted a year, thereafter it was draining them every three weeks).
Then, for no reason it stopped working. Fault was traced to a broken relay (despite the unit appearing to work properly).
Wouldn't buy again. Agree with other reviewers that it's not built to last.
Poor value at Â£80 for only 2 years.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by ZandorTrout Works well but fiddly to wire
It's a wireless room stat - it hasn't got to do much so I don't want to gush excessively about something that does what it's supposed to.
Only thing I found annoying was how fiddly it was to get the wires around the bend and into the tiny connectors. Come on Siemens - time is money. Try to remember that fingers are big, wires are tiny and boiler rooms are often dark and murky; so make these things easier and quicker to connect up.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tiredofguessingnicknames Straightforward to use
This is simple enough to fit, although if unsure I'd recommend searching the Screwfix forum where there is some useful advice.
However, the designers have not left a great deal of space for terminating wires making the installation a bit fiddly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lastswallowofsummer Nice value, but does it last?
Installed about 2 years ago, easy installation, worked perfectly, and having mobile thermostat has been a boon. This autumn although thermostat calling, and receivier in sync and showing that heat is being called for it was failing to switch boiler/pump on, unless the receiver was tapped sharply on the side. Spoke to Siemens Technical who said fairly common problem internal relay failing to function. So out of warranty after two years, and can't replace just the receiver so have to purchase new receiver and room stat pair. Maybe cheaper to buy more expensive make in first place?
