Great bit of kit
24 Dec 2014
By Technobabble

" My boiler (a Bosch Junior) had a mechanical timer and no room stat. Radiators had TRV's fitted but lack of sensible timer and ability to control house temp for different times of the week were a problem.
The Drayton Digistat allows you to set house temperatures for different parts of the day. It is not a on/off timer, instead you set the temp you need for your needs throughout the day and night. This is great because when it gets really cold outside at night the Digistat will call for heating to maintain the temp you set for overnight comfort. It's easy to programme for each day of the week or weekday/weekend quick setup so if you work Mon-Fri and home at weekends settings can be done quickly otherwise you can programme each day seperately.
An important note, it's easy for the missus to change the immediate temp without messing up the timing settings and it reverts back to the programmed settings on the next time period... brill. "

Utterly reliable...
28 Nov 2014
By edvine
, Canterbury
" I have several of these in service in various places, the youngest is at least 6 years old, and have not had any trouble with any of them. One is on the top floor of a 3 storey townhouse, communicating with a receiver in the basement, and it does this with no trouble until the batteries are all but dead.
The only downside is that they are not the easiest to program, compared to eg any of the recent Honeywell controllers / roomstats which are absolute childsplay to set-up & use. Honeywell's quality of late has not been as good as of old, though, so if you are a fit & forget customer I expect that you'll be very happy with the +3RF.
I've given it 4 stars for feqatures, which is possibly a bit unfair as it has everything that you could wish for, but I wanted to mark it down slightly for ease of use, and "Features" seemed the nearest rating to reduce.

Easy install/use thermostat
20 Dec 2013
By petanjo
, North East England
" The Drayton +3 RF Room Thermostat is a wireless controller for boilers. It is easy to install with the excellent instructions provided.There is a comprehensive range of settings which allow the user to tailor the system to their particular needs. The manual override is a useful feature for boosting heating at any time. Location of the units is important in order to have good wireless communication between transmitter and receiver. All told an excellent piece of kit! "

Much better
7 Dec 2013
By Cantthinkofanickname
, Milton Keynes
" Bought to replace a wireless thermostat that went too far either side of the set temperature before calling/cancelling call for heat - creating a noticeable and uncomfortable change in temperature. This maintains the temperature much better in our house. It calls for heat more often than our old thermostat but for shorter periods.
It's got so much flexibility but once you've set it up for the different temperatures you want during the day you can just leave it to do its thing. Holiday mode & frost protection are a bonus, perfect for leaving the house for that all important winter ski holiday! "

drayton digistat +3rf system
17 Oct 2013
By westcoastboy
, glasgow
" bought this to replace a flaky +2rf which was badged British gas. replacement was easy once I figured out how the receiver was fixed to the wall. the unit used a common plug so was just plugged into the old back plate and away it went. tweaking the wake-up times and temperatures took about 15 minutes. the unit has been working for about one month now and appears to be working efficiently. the displayed room temperature displayed seemed to be a bit high, however placing a separate digital thermometer next to the unit confirms the temperature is correct. Overall the system works fine the only thing I would like added is a screen light so you can see the display better in low light. "

good easy to fit unit

By taza
, north kent
" I have fitted a few of these and they are very straight forward. Be aware under current regulations they must be fitted by a qualified part p electrician .
only one complaint from a customer was she could not turn it off completly , as it had a built in 5 degree frost protection limit. I have not confirmed this, but i also do not see it as a problem, rather a bonus in the current cold weather.

Excellent product -money saver
3 Nov 2012
By Frank1965
, East midlands
" With energy prices going up i purchased this to allow more control of our central heating system, as thermostatic valves on radiators were not good at keeping a consistent temperature.
Product was easy to install and worked well.
Wireless transmitter worked over a long distance despite at least 4 thick walls between receiver and transmitter.
Already seeing benefits of more control over our heating and expecting to recoup my investment in this quite quickly.

Good Afterfit Product
12 Jan 2009
By Jandavd
, Dumfriesshire
" I bought this to update/ upgrade my combi boiler which for 9 years has operated with an old fashioned mechanical time clock which was very fiddly to set. The aim being to be able to regulate the house temp easily and with some consitency.
The product was supplied within 24 hours of order and after reading and re-reading the instructions and in particular the hard wiring for the receiver I decided to have a go at fitting it myself, (I am not an electrician but have a limited knowledge). It is important that you use heat resistent wiring for this job, something that is not entirely clear in the instructions!.
With the information in the provided instructions together with the instructions for the boiler, fitting was relatively straight forward and commissioning likelwise.
Control of the system is now set and reliable and the set temperature is consistently achieved.
The only reason I have not given reliability 5 stars is that I have not had it set up long enough to judge but so far so good. "

Replaces Worcester badged
11 Jan 2015
By CourtneyFish
, Leics
" I have a Worcester-Bosch boiler fitted with non programmable Digistat wireless unit which has been troublesome. Poor signal strength. It has an integral RF receiver/programmer which turns out to be compatible with the much better Digistat+3RF. You pair it up by setting the boiler integral controller to learn mode and put batteries in the stat. If you want continuous transmission to check signal strength (which is loads better), power up while holding the + button. Shame Screwfix don't sell the stat separately as you don't need the Drayton receiver supplied. Sell it.
As a programmable stat I think it's brilliant, very close temperature control at whichever of the six separate temps you programme in. Six separate temperatures for each of 7 separate days. The control panel can be locked to prevent accidental changing also by leaving the boiler switched to on I can control without going outside to the garage and over ride timer settings.
My CH used to be noisy as it switched on and off, the temperature varied and the pipes creaked. Not any more.

" The thermostat worked fine - a brilliant product. I have 5 of them installed in different houses.
After 10 months the first does not work any more, the relay who should switch on the boiler does not work any more. disappointing - it should last a least 5 years

Improved Digistat
17 Sep 2014
By Rebel65
, Bradford
" Bought this to replace a 10 year old Digistat RF3 which had developed a faulty SCR unit. Great value item from Screwfix with free next day delivery. Easy DIY fit. The improved design thermostat is much easier to programme than the old one (which still confused me after 10 years!). Obviously can't comment on the reliability yet but I'd give it 4 stars if it lasts at least 10 years. "

" The previous version of this device performed well for several years..
I hope and expect this latest version to be as good if not better.
several improvements in design,making it more convenient to change batteries etc.
Very little difference in programming .certainly no easier for ancient brains.
It would be useful if it was easier to detach and to change it's locations,but that is something for the manufacturer to consider;I would however suggest that a fixing similar to that used by sat nav's,IE a clasping design, rather than a somewhat dodgy pair of plastic clips with their potential to break easily, could be the answer

" Easy to fit, provided that you only have to swap with an existing Drayton thermostat. Works out of the box without any problem or difficult setting process. Overall good, I would have give it 5 stars if only a little bit less expensive. "
