The Best Ways to Control Your Smart Thermostat

The Wiser smart heating system offers the opportunity to make significant savings on your energy use and annual energy bills – with a wide range of ways to control your heating system available, you’re sure to find one that seamlessly fits you and your family’s lifestyle. So, how do smart heating controls work with the Wiser system, and which options are best for you?

Wiser’s Smart Heating Control Features

1. The Wiser Home App

The Wiser Home App allows you to control your smart thermostat from your smartphone, from anywhere at any time, allowing you to set schedules and adjust your heating remotely. Don’t worry if your plans changes – with the Wiser Home App you have full control, right at your fingertips. With regularly updated and enhanced features, the Wiser Home App gives you more access, insights and control over your home heating than ever before.

2. Automated Scheduling

For those whose timetables tend to remain the same, it’s easy to create heating schedules using the Wiser Home app, allowing you to automate heating to suit your and your family’s lifestyle. For example, by programming the heating to switch on for an hour in the morning in bedrooms and bathrooms or to come on just before the kids get home from school, you can reduce energy use compared to leaving it on all day. With automated scheduling, you can make sure you only heat the areas you’re using, when you’re using them.

3. Voice Command Compatible

The Wiser system is voice command compatible, which means you can control your heating through a variety of smart speakers, including Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Once integrated, use voice commands to boost your smart thermostats or check the temperature in your home.

4. Manual Control

Wiser has been designed to be flexible to your needs, with smart heating control operated directly from the intuitive touch interface. The wireless smart room thermostat can be free-standing or mounted to a wall using the clip included in your kit. For basic temperature up/down control, or activating boost, you can easily adjust your heating manually via the smart room thermostat.
