    Hi all,
    Help!!
    We have an Ideal mains-pressure system boiler in the attic, tank and Honeywell ST7100 controller/timer in the old airing cupboard, & a thermostat downstairs in the hall.

    We ordered a Hive a year back, with installation.
    Installer came out, took ST7100 timer off, looked at wires and declared there were too many...& left. We took a refund on the Hive (n)

    12 months on....the ST7100 has taken to buzzing loudly when water is on. We need to replace it :eek:

    Ideally with something a bit smarter....perhaps not a Hive. :whistle:
    It would be nice to have the timer easier to set (downstairs, for example!)....if it could be hive/nest-like with app/scheduling, great (y)

    Any suggestions?

    We would want an installer to be able to deploy - my skills are ok, but not a qualified sparks by any means....in the Leicester area.

    Hive, Nest or pretty much any other equivalent can be fitted. It's a fairly straightforward and standard job.

    The 'installer' was a chancer who clearly had no idea what they were doing.

    Thanks for the reply that was kind of what I thought at the time, but couldn't tell him to pull his socks up.
    Maybe I need a proper Sparky willing to do the work!

    That said, I was looking at the Drayton Wiser, which got good reviews, and think I found something that suggested it would not work with a mains-pressure system boiler (like we have)....

    I don't disagree.....but not being a qualified Sparks, I couldn't tell him to pull his socks up!!
