      Self install. Was worried about the install but no need.

      You need the extension kit on the boiler to get this going. I was concerned about wifi signal to where the boiler is as its in an annex through thick walls but You need the extension kit on the boiler to get this going. I was concerned about wifi signal to where the boiler is as its in an annex through thick walls but it worked. I did a lot of research, many people said that this was an easier install than Honeywell, I suppose I will never know. The install was so easy, in the UK you should have a isolator next to your boiler, this should mean that you will not even need to turn off the electric. I looked at PDF's of the boiler and tried to figure out how to install to no avail, that was my mistake (typical bloke I didn't read the instructions). My advice follow the instructions, its all done on the web after registering, it asks you the model number of the boiler and gives you a step by step guide of which cable goes where, once I rolled with this the whole thing was up and running in no time. Well designed and very easy to install, try an install for yourself before calling out a pro its so simple, like wiring a plus and hanging a picture level of complexity. Well done to Tado for providing the self install support like this.

      Excellent product!

      Clean design and easy app based control. Works well with standalone radiator thermostats to create separate zones within the house.
