Radiator Valves

Post by kepilla »

Hi,
I've just read about the new radiator valves, and I'm excited about them! Just what I was looking for

Please, could you add more information on them? (expected availability, functionality....)

Thanks! Regards

Hi

Does anyone know if these are like the Honeywell evohome radiator valves, whereby if the great does under the required , it'll fire up the boiler?

Thanks

They look pretty much the same as those Tado valves which are available by now. Now I don´t know if I should wait?! Netatmo seems a little cheaper (180€ vs. 200€).

Open questions:

- Tado can detect if anyone is at home, Netatmo too?
- to what extend is it possible to set the heating time schedule, Tado looks pretty complex
- costs for an extra valve? edit: looks like (Tado 79€ and Netatmo 70€)
- availability end 2016?!, Tado just launched
- which heating algorithm is smarter? Tado seems to have more experience in thermostats
- does Netatmo uses additional information of other Netatmo products at home (in and outdoor sensors)

Conrad (in my case in Austria) already lists them:

https://www.conrad.at/de/funk-heizkoerp ... ggest=true

179€ for the starter set, code NVP01

https://www.conrad.at/de/funk-heizkoerp ... ggest=true

69€ for one additional valve, code NAV01


It also says "available in 11 weeks" which would be around the end of november.

Thanks but I don´t quite believe it. Yesterday I contacted the netatmo support via Twitter and they told me they can´t even tell if they will be released this or next year...

I really want them because they have an algorithm that detects opened windows. Tado doesn´t support this yet and there will be some time untill they will implement this.

A real unique selling point is the look an feel of the valve app, I hope they can provide some small preview to this?!

netatmo?
