Going from dumb to smart heating/water?

    Our old house had a single heating zone plus a hot water tank. I got a nest fitted and it worked perfectly. We have moved to a new house and the layout is somewhat more complex:

    1. One section has underfloor heating. There is a single programmer (Myson MEP2C) and each room (5) has a thermostat.
    2. Upstairs is another zone. There is a single Myson MPRT in one of the bedrooms.
    3. There are 2 other extended rooms which have radiators (3 per room). Because the manifold was full the heating for these rooms is wired into the upstairs circuit.
    4. There is a hot water tank, controlled by the programmer (point 1).

    I have no intention of doing any work myself, but I would like to understand what my options are for converting from dumb to smart. I would actually be quite happy to leave the underfloor rooms on the dumb thermostats, they work really well but switching the heating on to this section of the house would be good.

    The main priority is to gain control of the 2 extended rooms so they dont just heat/cool when the upstairs heating is on.

    Any suggestions as to what I should expect to need in order to convert this to a smart system, any suggestions as to what smart system might work best for this kind of setup?
