    Default Conrad FHZ1000 Radio control centre

    I thought that I would give some feedback on the Conrad FHZ 1000 setup I bought recently. It was sent quickly, and works very well, but I have one immense frustration - all the menu selections are in German. It would not have been very difficult to translate them to English (and indeed other languages) - shows that they are not really trying to serve an international market.

    Having said that, it really does what I want - if I could find a similar system that has English menu selections, I would go for it. Anyone know of one? If not, I will probably buy more of them

    It seems that the Germans have put much more R&D into heating control and us brits are more than happy with our dated central thermostat and TRV set up. There seems to be two ways to go with this. Wait for the fabled LightwaveRF stuff to hit the market (don't plumb for their current offering, it's due to be replaced and is currently no where near as good as the Conrad offering) or take a look at the US market. The problem with the latter is that it is very much aimed at controlling heat and cooling which most of us don't have.

    In the mean time, I've learned what menu options I want even through I don't know what they actually mean!

    Smacombe - thank you for this - I had the English manual, it is the menu selections on the equipment that are in German that frustrate me.
