Competition hots up with launch of Wiser

Wiser, the next generation of multi-zone smart heating controls from Drayton, part of Schneider Electric, has received great reviews from installers and homeowners, proving the system is serious competition for its rivals.

The Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) gave Wiser 76/100, scoring higher than the likes of the Tado Smart Radiator Kit and the Honeywell Evohome. The GHI commented: “This a great value for money way of getting as much control over your heating as possible”.

Trusted Reviews also gave positive feedback in its review of the system, stating: “Wiser’s easy controls and apps make it one of the simplest systems to use. If you want multi-room heating on a reasonable budget, there’s nothing that comes close”.

Tech Advisor’s review said: “It’s easy to install and easy to use…There are a few rival systems…available with radiator valves so you can control the temperature in certain rooms, but none can match Wiser’s low cost.

We also like the app which looks good and is – in general – a pleasure to use.”

Consumer feedback has also been good, with Amazon users giving five-star reviews and commenting:

“A great system and a really easy install.”

“Excellent smart heating. Simple to use, easy to install and great individual room heating with radiator valves. Pretty decent value for money too.”

“The best looking iTRV on the market in my opinion and simple to install.”

The comments on social media have been complimentary too, with one user saying: “After seeing my system, a friend purchased and I helped install Wiser with Alexa and it’s awesome!”

Using the simple Wiser app, available on Android and iOS devices, homeowners can remotely control heating across a number of rooms in a home, from wherever they are. Wiser is even compatible with voice control systems including Amazon Alexa.

The buildable system centres around the Heat Hub, with three pre-bundled thermostat kits as well as two multi-zone kits available. The system features revolutionary new smart radiator thermostats, which can be used to create up to 16 specific heating zones within the home.
