Status-Q as it appeared about a decade ago, thanks to the Internet Archive.
The very pretty Nest thermostat has justifiably attracted a certain amount of attention recently. But it has a few failings, too:
So, it’s not for me. But I am keen to upgrade my heating controls: we have pretty substantial fuel bills even for our small and fairly well-insulated house.
So I’m after recommendations. Here’s my ideal system:
Anyone know of anything that satisfies a significant number of these? I don’t expect to get them all. But I also don’t want to spend a lot of money and time on a system which does some of them, only to discover that another would have been a better choice.
Oh, and I’d rather not have to do any major plumbing…
Any suggestions welcome!
A rainy night at Gog Magog Hills farm shop – one of my favourite local haunts.
In a box in the loft I found my old Olympus OM30, which I purchased a little over a quarter of a century ago: an OK, but never great, camera. With it, however, were a couple of Olympus OM-series Zuiko lenses, which were pretty good for the price. And I was delighted to find that you can get adapters to connect them to a micro-4/3 body like my Panasonic Lumix GH2. You can buy the adapter from Olympus for £143 or from Fotodiox for £29. I chose the latter.
My first few experiments with the combination are here.
