Home Automation control of Heating

Inteligent Heating Control

What can Home Automation bring to your Heating?

Your heating system is probably already controlled from a timer, so what more can home automation bring? Well in just a few words, more comfort, lots more convenience and reducing your energy bills by intelligent control of your home's heating and temperature. And in a single word - Intelligence!


You decide which areas of your home are heated, when they're heated and to what temperature. For instance you may decide you want the rooms heated to 18°C in the morning, 12°C during the day and 20°C in the evening. The home automation system handles it all for you - no need to worry or think about it.


No need to go around your home changing room or radiator temperatures, they can look after themselves based on automatic schedules or when the relatives come to visit. Just as importantly, you can operate them from your smartphone whether you're at home or away. You can change the heating, even if you're stuck in traffic!


Create zones that can be individually turned On/Off or be set to different temperatures through the day. This really delivers smart home living, allowing you to only heat the parts of your home that you need, helping save money and waste. You can even create zones in systems that would otherwise have needed expensive plumbing and changes.

Saving Energy

You can significantly reduce your energy costs by intelligently controlling your heating - even small changes can have a big impact. It's not just about controlling the time and temperature, it's also about using other components of the home automation system to create intelligent heating. For instance my son's bedroom is the warmest in the house. When it get's too hot, his solution is to open his window, which works quite well in January, but wastes a lot of heat. An intelligent solution is to fit a detector to the window, when the window is opened, the home automation system automatically switches off the room's radiators helping to reduce wasted heat and save costs.
