I have a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Sri 30 and was quite concerned about compatibility, but no problems! My existing thermostat was a WB RF controlling the built-in programmer (awkward to change). The WB thermostat was very approximate 1C always having to readjust it. The Hive is accurate to 0.2C very sensitive and required us to have faith in the displayed temperature. Very impressed with the programme options, have now been able to set time periods and temperatures to suit our daily routine. Ability to manage via website is great making our readjustment of the programme so easy. BG installation easy to organise and efficient.
I paid for the installation as well, only had to wait a week, considering it was the week of Black Friday I was impressed. Really impressed with the Hive and how easy it is to control it. The British Gas Engineer was brilliant, so thorough, explained everything, called back the following day to check it was still connected to the internet and it was all working well.
Works a treat and easy to install. (once I solved the existing thermostat problem)Literally takes 5-10 minutes to install the only problem I had was when I removed my existing thermostat, the heating wouldn't come on. I discovered this was down to a missing connection the boiler needed which was no longer there as the thermostat no longer clicked on or off. A simple terminal block reconnecting the relavant wires and it works perfect. Now I can stop the wife messing with the heating.
Very pleased with this product, does exactly what I wanted it to do and the whole process from receiving the product, booking an installation slot and the handover from the British Gas engineer was excellent, I had to wait a bit longer than I holed for an installation slot, but it was worth the wait.We have a very complex heating system and the engineers face was a picture when he saw it, but some detailed analysis and a couple of phone calls later and he'd got it cracked and all the way through the process he was cheerful and friendly and said no matter how long it took he wouldn't leave until it was all working and fully tested, he even had a a special fitting plate to cover the gap left by our old timer (the hive one is square rather than rectangular) so the fitting was neat and tidy.Looking forward too what other home automation products are added to the Hive system
One of the best things I've bought.Went for the professional install.Unless really in the know of electrics.I would recommend a engineer,as he had to swop some cables around for the electric valves were configured properly.
