Smart TRV hub required??

Hi,

I'd like to try and save some money this winter by turning heating off when/where not needed while still ensuring my baby daughter's bedrooms remain at a constant temperature through the night.

I've been looking at Smart TRVs that say they work with Google but they all say that their branded hub is still needed. Are there any smart TRVs that I can buy which will just work with the Nest thermostat without needing a separate hub?

My nest thermostat is in the coldest room in the house so if that triggers the boiler to come on to heat that room but the girls bedrooms are at the temperature we want then I want the smart TRVs so that the radiators don't hear up their rooms even more.

Can anyone help?

If the only problem is your girls's bedrooms are getting too hot why not just install a much cheaper TRV.

I have the same question. Again, it's wherever my daughter is. We want the house warm downstairs when we're down and the heat up her room before she goes to sleep. We want a smart trv so we can control the heating in each room without going around controlling the valves. 

Ideally want to add smart trv to our existing nest but need to understand more about hardware needed and installation as our plumber isn't knowledgeable in this technology.

Thanks, Jake.

All that article says is that nest thermostats are compatible with Smart TRVs. Is it able to control them though? Can it replace the "gateway hub" that some TRVs say they need?

That does not answer the question

Hi Jake, as Ninerfish and Frankwilliams97 say, that link does not answer the question. Are you a human or a bot? I'm looking for a proper answer to the original question too.
