A new entrant to the smart heating market brought to us by Schneider Electric (Drayton Controls) that has everything you need to control your heating zones, hot water and individual radiators.

With a potential 5yr warranty, this is the best warranty offered yet by a smart heating product and although the app takes some getting used to, the Wiser system is proving very popular with my clients due to the flexibility of installation offered by the Wiser system.

Manufacturer's Website: .

Wiser is made up of several components:

The Wiser Hub
Replaces your existing time controller where applicable or is mounted near your boiler or in your airing cupboard and undertakes the physical work of turning your boiler on and off. This is the heart of the Wiser system and is what communicates with the Internet and all the other components of your Wiser system, where possible it is recommended that this be placed centrally in the home to ensure good radio coverage with all of the components. Range extenders can be purchased if required to boost the signal within larger properties (These units are available to purchase sepearatly and are a pass-through plug design).
Typical installation duration: 1-2hrs.

The Wiser Room Thermostat
Monitors and provides an in-room adjustment of heating temperatures. These can be wall mounted or sit on a suitable surface in your home using the provided stand.
Typical installation duration, around 15mins.

The Wiser Radiator Controller
Replaces existing radiator thermostatic valves (Check compatibility first) and provides room temperature monitoring and adjustment of the heat from connected radiators.
Typical installation duration, around 15mins.

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. Additionally gravity systems can also be controlled.

Oil boilers with or without hot water tank
Yes. As long as your oil boiler has under a 3amp design draw, you can treat it as a standard gas boiler.

Warm air
Not officially supported, but I see no reason why it cannot support warm air.

Heat interface units & district systems
Yes. As long as you have independant control of your heating system, then Wiser 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 Wiser 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 a wifi Internet connection ideally broadcasting on a 2.4Ghz channel, you will need good wifi coverage throughout your home for the system to function smoothly.
