Discuss Replacing Siemens RBW2E Programmer in the Central Heating Forum area at UKPlumbersForums.co.uk.

    Hi all
    My fully pressurised CH and HW system is controlled by the above programmer. There's no room thermostat, but plenty of TRVs.

    I'm going to replace it with a new 7-day programmer together with a wireless room stat.

    Trawling the Internet has made me look at two possible solutions:
    Honeywell's Sundial Wireless RF2 Pack 2
    Drayton's MiTime RF pack 2

    I'm not sure what else will fit the bill, but would appreciate any comments about the above two systems, and any further possibilities. I'm really looking for a straight swap onto the back-plate.

    Thanks in advance,
    Fran

    Why don't ye put in a Siemens RWB9 or an RWB29. It may suit the existing backplate seeing as it's made by same company and it has a seven day program.
    Just ring their technical and ask if compatible

    Personally I'd avoid the Honeywell wireless, found that they seem to get a few years old and then pack up! Had good results with the MiTime so far but I guess time will tell...

    I'll do that - I couldn't see whether these came with a wireless room thermostat

    Didn't have a chance to ring them as had a meeting until 6:30, but they don't look like they're wireless.

    I'm wanting to add a room stat, without adding wiring, so need to go wireless. Now thinking about Hive V1, as Screwfix have it for just over a hundred quid.

    SO - I went for Hive V1. Picked it up from Screwfix on the way home from work and installed it all this evening. It seems to be doing what I want.

    This girl is happy :D
