Smart home radiator thermostats: Ideal for saving energy
Smart Home radiator thermostats are the ideal addition to your automated home. The compact valves are available for little money in the online store of Berrybase and can be easily integrated into an existing smart home network. How the thermostats work and what advantages the modules bring - you can find out here.
How does a smart home radiator valve work?
Smart Home radiator thermostats have an integrated temperature sensor whose function is to control the heating valve. As soon as the room temperature falls below a certain value, the sensor ensures that the valve opens. A so-called radiator valve insert serves as an aid in this process. Heating water then flows into the radiator and the latter begins to heat the room. When the desired temperature is exceeded, the valve closes, and heating activities are stopped. The smart thermostats rely on a WLAN connection or another radio standard, among other things, so that they can communicate with other smart home components. This also means that annoying cable laying is not necessary for the use of smart thermostats.
How to install smart home radiator thermostats?
Before the actual installation of the smart home radiator valve, you must first remove the old, analog valve. Then you mount the smart gadget on the radiator - either by screwing it on or using an adapter. You will find step-by-step instructions in paper form in the scope of delivery or as a digital version in the manufacturer's own smartphone application. External support from a specialist is usually not necessary during installation.
These are the advantages of smart home radiator thermostats
With smart home radiator thermostats you enjoy maximum comfort, because to control the heating, you can henceforth simply use your smartphone or tablet. Simply turn on your heating remotely when you're on your way home from work - and enjoy a warm home right when you arrive. To make this possible, each manufacturer has developed its own app with different, individual functions. The apps are mostly equipped with an intuitive user interface, so you don't need any in-depth technical skills. Alternatively, you can even control the smart thermostat via voice assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple HomeKit. The control is not only extremely convenient, but also precise: With the help of a smart home radiator thermostat, you can determine exactly how high the temperature in your home should be. The result is an optimal indoor climate at all times. Another advantage: If you use the thermostat in combination with other Smart Home modules, you can arrange for your heating to (de)activate itself under certain conditions. The use of smart door and window contacts is particularly useful here. You can place these in the room in question and configure them so that your radiator activates all by itself as soon as it registers an open window. You can also set automated schedules via the corresponding app. For example, you can set your radiator to automatically regulate the temperature downwards as soon as a predefined time in the evening is reached. This also has a positive effect on your personal well-being, because excessively warm, dry heating air is not known to be conducive to healthy sleep. All these factors add up to what is probably the biggest advantage - and one that will please money-savers. Because the radiators in your home can be controlled flexibly and automatically, you can easily reduce the amount of energy required. This in turn means that your heating costs will drop significantly, leaving you with more money at the end of the month. At the same time, you're also doing the environment a big favor.
What should you consider when buying?
If you want to integrate your smart radiator thermostat into an existing smart home system, you should make sure that all devices are produced by the same manufacturer. Otherwise, it is very likely that the different modules are not compatible. In addition, some smart home manufacturers require a central control unit to coordinate the entire network. In the case of Homematic IP, for example, you absolutely need the in-house access point so that communication between the various components is possible.
