MrSmart;12441:I used to be really tight with putting the heating on but I've decided that if needs must.Also, getting hive installed has been a revelation and I'm sure will save me some cash as it is a lot more schedulable (is that a word?!) and I can switch it off with the touch of a button rather than having to be in the house and think about it a bit more.My house has fairly big rooms and takes forever to heat up just 1 degree so I was toying with between option 2 on the poll and option 3. The only reason I didn't go for option 3 is that my OH usually puts the heating AND gas fire on in the lounge, I come home and switch it off :D
dgilbert2;14653:Need more "bad boys" :DInteresting how most people voted for the watching bills option :checkmark:
Oakbank;18481:I have an app on my phone and a cheap wifi connected relay in the thermostat circuit. I can use that to turn the heating On or Off remotely. Handy when we go away for the weekend or longer. The kitchen/dining room stays warm, courtesy of the Aga, but we're not wasting gas heating the rest of the house. When we get about an hour from home we turn the heating on and get home to a comfortable house. IMHO Hive is a rip-off. You can get simple on/off functionality for £6.99 from ebay. Search for Sonoff wifi switch.
