Zoned Heating Control With Remote App
With the rising popularity of remote apps and thermostats such as Hive and Nest people are realising the benefits of controlling their heating remotely and intelligently.

Treating your house as a single zone is not the best way to control it. For example you may want a lower temperature in the bedrooms during the day. Whilst you can get a degree of control combining thermostatic radiator valves with a single intelligent thermostat it’s much more beneficial to replace those thermostatic radiator valves with battery operated wireless intelligent valves. This gives you time based control of each room separately allowing you to accurately set the temperature independently in each room at different times of the day.
A wireless home automation system that provides an unlimited number of heating zones all controlled from a completely free app. The system can be professionally installed and set up in less than a day and assuming we can set up your router you can access the system from anywhere. Setting the system to vacation mode (all rooms in frost protection and hot water off) is simply a matter of pressing a button on your app. Turning the house on from the airport before you get home is equally simple.
One other comfort benefit is that whilst traditional heating systems cannot heat a room if the main thermostat is satisfied a zoned system can, therefore a room that is maybe north facing can be heated when all the other rooms are already warm enough. Traditionally to get round this the central thermostat is usually set quite high to compensate for colder rooms. This creates overheating and energy wastage.
We can also combine wireless window sensors to reduce the set point in a room if the window is open. The intelligent thermostat has a configurable button that we can program to turn the room on for an hour for example – useful if you’re a little later back from the pub than planned!
