Hand adjusting a smart thermostat


Smart thermostats, such as Hive and Nest, connect to your wifi so you can control your heating and hot water through your smart phone, tablet and desktop. These can be expensive and have an added installation cost. Having one means you are only tracking your heating so you can't keep an eye on your electricity and gas usage.

These include brands such as Smappee and Owl, which allow you to see your electricity use in near real time so you can keep track of what appliances affect your electricity consumption and impact your bill. However, they don't automatically send your data to your supplier so you still have to manually take meter readings.
