    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
