Thermostat for Vitodens 100 modcon boiler

Do "smart" thermostats make sense to install with modulating condensing boilers? If so, gas company rebates may make it worth purchasing.

Currently I keep the thermostat temperature setting constant throughout the day and week.

I have a Vitodens 100 WB1B boiler (installed in 2011) with one heating circuit, outdoor reset (and no low-loss header).

Thanks for your comments.

Welcome to the forums.

Not really a candidate for a smart thermostat.

In my opinion.....smart thermostats are basically a novelty item.
I use a basic programmable thermostat and that suites my needs fine.

There are some things that a smart thermostat does that are useful.
It can monitor the ambient temperature and let you know when it's above/below a certain set point. This is a good feature at a summer or winter home where someone isn't living there.

Thru the apps.... you can track energy usage of system.
