Re: NEST Smart Thermostat

So they do not have to be NEST products right? I think like I am going to disturb you a lot Tom
Mine are Homematic. You can set them up as standalone or with a CCU2 control unit, you can control them via a web interface, or via Home Automation software such as openHAB.

I ought to elaborate: A NEST thermostat can only work 'alone' when it replaces another suitable wall mounted thermostat. If you don't have one, you can't simply use NEST (without some wiring).

The radiator thermostats I'm describing can only be used with NEST if you use some third-party linking system that can communicate with the NEST thermostat and the radiator valves.

You could link them, via openHAB to those cool looking but expensive NEST thermostats but that's not actually necessary as the Homematic thermostats (and others like it) have thermometers built in.

This is what my panel display looks like. The 'circles' allow you to control the temperature of the two room directly:
