As part of the Wiser installation you will need to link out the existing thermostats from the wiring centre (if they are wired). The new thermostats will replace your old ones by being placed into those zones. Top tip: you'll need to name your thermostats to ensure you know which zone is which on the Wiser heat app (e.g updstairs, downstairs).
Access your Google Play store or Apple app store account, search for Wiser Heat, if there is a new version to download, it will say so in the app. To update, press the update button.

Yes, you can If you have a Wiser kit 1 and an OpenTherm enabled combi boiler. Wiser comes with an OpenTherm module located to the rear of your Wiser Heat Hub and needs to be wired up to start using the OpenTherm capability. Where wiring is concerned we would always advise that you seek the aid of a qualified installer / heating engineer.
OpenTherm boilers continuously adapt the system water temperatures by communicating with heating controls for real time room temperature. Once the heating controls detect your home or individual room is reaching the desired room temperature, it will tell the boiler to lower the system temperature ensuring maximum efficiency.
No, Wiser works very efficiently with most boilers and is easy to install. The beauty of Wiser is if you do decide to upgrade to an OpenTherm boiler, our smart control will also be compatible.

The Heat HubR heating channel(s) does/do not support UFH configurations. UFH requires an on/off type heating algorithm but HubR uses a load compensating algorithm in its current implementation.
We also recommend against using UFH on the hot water channel – this zone will always appear as “Hot Water” in the app and it is not possible to configure a room thermostat to this zone.
Yes, Radiator Thermostats can request heat from the Wiser Heat Hub which instructs the boiler to fire.
The Room Thermostat overrides the Radiator Thermostat when placed in the same room.
The Room Thermostat isn’t required for the system to work but it is recommended as it provides a visual temperature reading and improves accuracy. If, for example, you have an open plan space with multiple Radiator Thermostats you should ideally use a room thermostat as a central control to maintain accuracy. The room thermostat also allows you to boost or override the room from one point.
The Wiser Room Thermostat is designed to control the heating within the ‘zone’ it resides and is not a master control for the entire home.
Each multi-zone kit is designed to get you started, then you can add to your system when you are ready. The Room Thermostat enables you to control your living space whilst using existing mechanical TRVs to limit the temperature in other rooms. We recommend that you start by positioning your two Radiator Thermostats in a room where you want the most control. See the user guide for full recommendations.
