A smart thermostat from a controls manufacturer often referred to as entry-grade, the iT500 is actually a well thought out and put together product. A simple to use mobile interface and a reliable switching box, I actually do not mind saying that the Salus iT500 is a worthwhile consideration for those looking to go smart without major investment and where there is no huge emphasis on integration with other smart home products.

It has the ability to control both your heating and hot water and can be installed on the wall or free standing.

The Salus iT500 thermostat can control a single heating zone and hot water zone straight out of the box. However you can easily expand the setup to a two heating zone and hot water controller by the simple process of an addon heating controller.

Out of the box
You get a thermostat panel, junction box and communications box. The thermostat can be wall mounted or freestanding and is battery powered so no you won't have to hide any trailing cables. The internet communication module gets plugged into a spare port on your router and then a simple switching box gets mounted in your airing cupboard for a standard system or next to your boiler for combination style heating appliances.
Typical installation duration: Around 1hr.

Additional heating zone thermostat
If you have a two zone heating system, the Salus iT500 unit offers the ability to connect an additional heating zone thermostat to you system, simply power up this additional wall unit and connect it to the existing junction box and you'll be able to control both zones independantly.
Typical installation duration: Around 20mins.

All specifications were correct at time of writing, due to the nature of smart controls, features get added frequently (and unfortunately, sometimes removed), please check with the manufacturer or directly with myself if you specifically require a certain feature. I try to keep these feature lists updated as regularily as I can and if you notice an error, please let me know.

Combination Boilers
Yes. Compatible with all UK combi boilers.

Normal gas boilers with hot water tank
Yes. Traditional S and Y plan systems are easily converted unless you have a specialist controls pack like the "Honeywell SmartFit" system. Gravity systems can also be controlled with a bit of re-wiring to your system .

Oil boilers with or without hot water tank
Yes. Depending on the oil boiler in question, I personally advise a seperate switching relay as the unit only has a 3amp switching circuit and some oil boilers can pull a 5amp current which could damage the control box in some situations. See also the above note on gas systems with tank regarding system design.

Warm air
Not officially supported for the UK market, however the unit will work fine in most cases.

Heat interface units & district systems
Yes. As long as you have independant control of your heating system, then the Salus unit should be compatible.

Electric heating
Technically, it's not officially supported for the UK market, however, like most things in this world it does depend on your system as the iT500 is compatible with electric boilers and doesn't normally require any special components, but for panel or underfloor mat systems some modifications may be required and you should call me to discuss the type of system you have. Unfortunately, if you have electric storage heaters, there is not a compatible smart stat on the market.

Internet requirements
An "always-on" broadband connection will be required with spare ethernet port near your router and spare 240v plug socket within close proximity.
