Have you ever been caught out by a sudden drop in temperature? Fortunately, with the Wiser Heat App, from wherever you are in the world, you can boost the temperature of your home, ready for when you return.
With Eco Mode enabled, your smart thermostat learns about your home’s thermal properties including how long it takes specific rooms to warm up. Combine this with live weather data and your smart thermostat calculates the most economical way to heat your home whilst maintaining maximum efficiency. Wiser’s Eco Mode has been meticulously designed to help you dramatically reduce wasted energy, saving you money on your energy bills.
Wiser, in conjunction with a clever algorithm, calculates the best time to turn your heating on based on your home’s thermal properties. This ensures that rooms in your home have reached required temperatures by the scheduled start time. You can enable both Eco and Comfort Mode simultaneously to reap all of the benefits.
Away on holiday or unexpected stay over? Flip your Wiser smart heating system into Away Mode to instantly reduce all set points in your home and save energy. For additional benefits, link your Wiser smart thermostat with IFTTT to activate Away mode when your household is empty.
What happens if the temperature drops dramatically while you’re on holiday? Or when you need to work late to prepare for an important meeting? Not a problem. Your Wiser Heat App allows you to set schedules and make quick changes from anywhere in the world to help you prevent wasted energy, and the best part is the changes are instant!

This can allow you to set the temperature in your nursery between 16°c and 20°c to keep your little one at a safe temperature as they sleep, whilst your living space is set to a warmer temperature for a cosy night in. You could also utilise this feature by setting your spare room at a lower temperature while not in use to save money.
