    Default Honeywell Hometronic Prices ?

    Given the offer on at the moment is there a list available somewhere that details all the Hometronic parts and their RRP ?

    Hi Kevin

    No, we don't have a published price list as such, we simply ask that you let us know what you system consists so we can give you the details of what you will need and what options you have if there are several ways of approaching your particular requirements.

    Bear in mind that we have several unique products that are not standard Honeywell items - dedicated firmware in some modules, hardware modifications to others and some items (such as the telephone and data/web interfaces) that are our own designs. We do have a brochure pack that includes a pricing guide to give indicative costs for different kinds of systems.

    I'm happy to send out proposals & quotes to anyone who wants specific pricing, simply drop me an email, PM or give me a call to discuss

    Its really good to see that you are opening up to the DIY market, and we can all understand why you want to do that now.

    This is a different market from the professional installer market, its a bit like we want to look round B&Q and Maplins to see what there is so that we can go and think about what we want to do, and for many of us, that is a big part of the enjoyment of all this stuff.

    Sending off something to a supplier and getting their recommendations feels like work, not fun. We want the price list, we want a couple of paragraphs on what each bit does, a few photos, a diagram, we want to get involved in it all, then we want to implement it, tune it, mess around some more, then when we have done everything we can, we'll move on to another project.

    Don't take away some of our fun, or we'll go to do another project instead!

    Hi Michael

    It's not that we are trying to take away the fun, we simply want to ensure that anyone buying our kit knows that it will work properly. We are not box-shifters simply looking to sell lots of product, we still provide a full service. There is still plenty of fun to be had making the kit do things we never thought of and that is why we have changed our offering for the HA enthusiast who would not be interested in or willing to buy our design/supply/commission service offered by us and our resellers.

    Just making sure that all of the kit is actually compatible can be a major game and if product does need firmware upgrades (for example to use the latest wireless transceivers for our Web Manager) then we need a way to capture this requirement pre-sale to ensure it is factored in rather than having an annoyed customer trying to return kit post install that they have been unable to make work. That is why the offer is structured the way it is and why we will still issue dedicated quotations to anyone who asks

    Ok, thanks I can see your point, I just didn't want you to miss some of your potential market because we think in a different way from professional installers.

    agree.... where's the prices / details...

    took at look at your webby and it didn't do anything for me other than make me think... hmmm this looks like a dealer who wants to charge what he wants based on getting a sniff from a customer asking about the gear :-)

    Not saying you would do this, but i have seen it happen before.

    I think I preferred it when NeilUK posted occasional helpful advice and we all knew he worked for Sensible Heat, as opposed to having Sensible Heat marketing to us direct. Hope they're coughing up some cash. But then I am quite crabby .

    Crabby - thats a pretty negative post.

    It should be said that it was *my* idea to encourage SensibleHeat to become a more active member of our forums, it's not something Neil has asked to do - I'm sure he has enough of heating systems during his day job without posting here on evenings and weekends.

    Lets keep things friendly please.

    Crabby has left the building. It's been swell. Sorry for causing offence, I really must work on my friendliness. I hope Automated Home and Sensible Heat have a long and mutually rewarding relationship.

    Adios.
