    hi, I have 4 small bedsits, the heating (radiators) for all 4 is by a single Ideal Vogue c40 Gen2 boiler, I'm wanting to install a seperate smart thermostat in each of the 4 bedsits and ideally 1 in the communal area (5 thermostats in total), does anyone know of a system that will support this? cheers.

    Would you want independent control of each room ?

    thanks for your reply, we don't need to control each room, just each bedsit as a whole, the plumbing has been done so that each bedsit is on a seperate zone, hopefully that helps!

    So each has its own port valve ?

    As Shaun is saying each bedsit will need a zone valve for the control you are seeking heatmiser is worth a look . Kop

    Keep it simple then

    Honey well 6360 for each room and a main timer

    Don't forget your can't have a trv on the room rads just lock shield

    Or go with a wireless prog room stat

    the bedsits are going to be holiday lets and I ideally want to be able to control the heating from a phone app - then I can turn it on before guests arrive and switch it off when the bedsits are vacant. I looked at the Ideal touch connect but sadly you can only connect one thermostat! The Nest ones are too clever (and expensive) for what we need, must be a simpler alternative that just allows you to turn the heating on and control temperature (in multiple zones)?

    Just looking at the Heatmiser Neostat, looks like a good option, presumably we can use multiple ones with the one boiler?

    Thats great, thanks!

    All the bedsits have a small bathroom, open plan living room / kitchen and one bedroom, if we had one centrally located thermostat in each bedsit would that do it?

    Yes but if there's a rad in the same room must be non trv controlled

    What's heating the hot water ?

    the one bigger flat has the hot water from the combi boiler but the other 3 all have electric showers and electric water heaters under the sink
