SmartPhone Heating Control Just got Smarter with Neo from Heatmiser
Neo by Heatmiser is set for launch in January 2014 and has been designed with the retrofit and the new build market in mind, with the sole aim of allowing more people to control their heating from their SmartPhone. Smart control of your heating is the best way to reduce energy usage.
Heatmiser, a British based family company, has been involved in the manufacture of heating controls and thermostats for the past 30 years, with the company's products being used by some of the country's leading heating equipment manufacturers. When asked about the importance of product development, Martyn Kay the Director of Heatmiser went on to say “Product development is key at Heatmiser, we listen to feedback from customers and re-act with great products. We are proud to have been one of the first companies in the UK to launch a Wi-Fi Enabled Thermostat back in 2011, and the demand for SmartPhone control of the heating system has continued to grow ever since.
Most of the homes in the UK have a single thermostat and a separate programmer that controls the time of the heating and hot water. A neoStat replaces the existing thermostat and a neoStat-hw replaces the programmer. All that remains is to plug the neoHub into your broadband router and now you have remote access of your heating and hot water from anywhere at any time.
The neoApp will be available on the iOS and Android platform and promises a great set of user features. For example, via the Mobile App, you will be able to hold a certain temperature for a number of hours in a select number of rooms in your home, ideal for parties. You can also switch the whole home heating in to Away mode, a mode that will protect your home against frost damage. And for those with ever changing schedules, the profile feature will let you store in advance a set of comfort level settings that you can then apply to the system as and when your schedule changes.
Neo uses a mesh network to send data back to the neoHub, so has been designed for larger homes where ordinary RF Thermostats would possibly have a problem. From the ground up, Neo was designed with multi-zones in mind, so additional neoStats’ can be added for total zone control.
Heatmiser have thought of developers too with a neoAPI being made available on launch. Heatmiser already work with some of the leading home automation companies, helping to further advance our connected world.
If you have read the news recently, you will be aware that energy prices are on the rise. Many of the energy companies have announced in the recent days that our gas and electric prices are going up, and we can be sure that the ones that haven't increased their prices yet, will soon do so.
With this in mind, it's never been so important to look for ways to save energy, and reducing your heating costs should be high on your list - did you know that for example more than 60% of your energy costs are heating related?
