Re: I can handle this one

I know there is a lot of hate here, but the one thing I love about it is that you set what temperature you want the house to be at a certain time and it learns how long it takes your house to warm up after the heating is turned on. So if I want it hot by 7am, it will turn it on at 6:42 knowing it takes 18 minutes. (Before my solid brick house had external insulation added it came on 45 minutes beforehand! But then automatically reconfigured itself after the house insulation was added)

Also the amount of times I've gone out for the day and forgot to turn off the heating but it realises I'm not home and turns it off itself to save me heating. I'm certain the thing has paid for itself over the last year.
