Smart homes. They are becoming more and more part of our everyday lives.

A recent survey conducted by OnePoll for the Smart Home Forum, shows that 75% of British people have heard of a smart home, and that the number of people owning some kind of smart product has rocketed up to 43%, compared to only 27% in 2017.

OVO want to help our customers take steps to smarter, more efficient living when it comes to your energy usage therefore, we have joined forces with Tado° to offer offer existing OVO Energy customers a great discount on the Tado° Smart Thermostat and other products. Curious?

Ah this is annoying! I have recently bought Hive thermostats for my house :-(

Ahhhhh @ITGeek123 that's a shame!

But great news re the Hive. I don't have one yet, but am definitely wanting one. Do you control yours via an App as well? How are you finding it so far?

@Darran_OVO It's brilliant! I do use the App. But I also use Google home for the heating and lights. I would highly recommend it, but for users on here. Be rest assured the Tado thermostat is very competitive with Hive. I only went with the Hive thermostats because I didn't want to have two hubs in my house. I would still highly recommend Tado :-)

Nice @ITGeek123

Am definitely on board, been wanting one for ages. I have Alexa, so keen to make my home smarter with lights and heating etc and to make the most of Alexa to control it all :)

I like features like it knowing when you leave the house so it can turn the heating down/off and that you could remotely turn on the heating if you are travelling back home so the house is warm when you get in, rather than coming home to a cold house (not that we have that issue right now of course!!)

Be great if you could write a new topic for the forum about your experience with a smart thermostat when you have a spare 15 minutes or so. Be great for other users to hear about it.

@Darran_OVO I would be honoured to.

Any news about the smart battery storage? I cannot wait any longer! I keep nagging your colleagues about it haha. I registered my interest but really want to be apart of it all. Currently an EV owner so would love to see the benefits of having battery storage in my home.

Amazing @ITGeek123

We should have some updates soon, we are just finalising some of the last details of the trial so that we can start sharing more about it! Good to hear you have registered your interest!

Hang on in there, you will hear more about this in the next few weeks!!

If you want to write about owning an EV too, that would be even more amazing! You can add a new topic for that here: https://forum.ovoenergy.com/owning-an-ev-87

PS: If you can add a profile picture, you'd make my Monday :)

Awesome stuff @ITGeek123!!

Look forward to seeing your new topics! Great to see you have 2 EV's too! Be interesting to hear why you choose them and if they are different from each other.
