Smart Heating with Google assistant, Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa. Don't buy the Hive or Nest but why

Here at Apps plumbing we are really excited about the future of the plumbing industry. We have been looking into different way of doing this, We looked at price, ease of use and install.

So why here are the reasons I wouldn't fit a nest or Hive heating system in my house. Both the Google nest and Hive are just smart thermostat that turn on the heating on and off but what about the spare room you don't use why would you want to heat areas of the house that don't get used? The second reason I wouldn't fit the Google Nest or Hive is you can only control the temps in the room that they are fitted.

Here are the reasons I would fit the smart thermostats like Drayton wise, Honeywell evohome or the new comer Tado. You can contact every room in the house from your phone, tablet or laptop. So you can have the living room at 21°C, the bathroom at 18°C and have the spare bedroom off. Also these work with Google home, Apples Siri and Amazon Alexa see the table to see which works best for you.

Its a no brainer to heat the house that you use and control temps. If you want some help, advice or an installer contact us at
