So the new Topic this week is the Smart thermostat and what brand to go with as they are gaining popularity.
Most people go with Nest or Hive seemingly dependant entirely on the idea of do i trust google of not. There are of course other smart home systems but most require a more in depth look into smart home ecosystems.
I will be looking at installing a Nest Thermostat & Possibly a Hive as well in the next couple of months. I will document the process purely for new entrants to the Electrical industry to see different types of control setups there are (Unless you are Gas Safe Registered & Competent you should NEVER mess with Gas & it’s illegal to do so) as one of the boilers is a Viessmann Vitodens W100 35Kw combi boiler and possibly i will be fitting one on a Worcester as well.
During this process we will Not be opening Boilers but simply accessing the wiring center and following safe isolation process’s first & where appropriate i will have a Qualified Gas Safe engineer here for that.
