Leading British Home Automation developer, LightwaveRF. will be launching a new element to its Connect family of wireless â€˜Smart Homeâ€™ products at Gadget Show Live 2014 in April. The technically advanced Heating Range will enable accurate monitoring and control of domestic heating systems using a Smartphone, tablet or PC. Home owners will soon be able to setup, monitor and control boiler on/off times, individual room temperatures and even the temperature of â€˜zonesâ€™ through the house, from anywhere in the world using the Internet.
In the fast-evolving Home Automation scene, this development represents a â€˜world firstâ€™ since competitive systems cannot yet offer monitoring and control down to room and individual radiator level.
The new LightwaveRF Heating Range forms part of the Connect portfolio of home automation products, which includes switches, sockets, dimmers and relays used to control lighting, appliances, entertainment systems, and almost any electrical equipment. Specialised heating devices will now include boiler controls, thermostats, thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) all of which have wireless connectivity and Internet access via any broadband router.
This development will make it easy to for home owners to maximise heating efficiency and save on heating costs. Using the LightwaveRF Smartphone app or computer based management software heating can be turned off or down in unoccupied rooms, bedrooms can be heated independently to suit regular sleeping habits, and living areas heated precisely to support lifestyle and occupancy patterns.
Products from the LightwaveRF Heating Range will be available through retail and Internet outlets from mid-summer 2014.
