Remote control your thermostat via your smartphone and use it to adjust your home’s temperature and turn your hot water on or off when you’re out and about. The third generation Nest Learning Thermostat offers unrivalled control over your heating and will help you to save money on your heating bills.
Energenie Mi Home Radiator Valve
The Energenie Mi Home Radiator Valve regulates heating and uses timed programmes and set temperatures to ensure energy efficiency and keep energy bills to a minimum. One of the main benefits of the Energenie Mi Home Radiator Valve system is that you can control each radiator individually as opposed to having to heat the whole house from a single thermostat. These valves also feature timers and can be used in conjunction with Phillips Hue and Nest products.
Energenie Mi Home Hub
The Energenie Mi Home Hub is a communication hub used to control Mi Home heating and lighting systems remotely through the Internet. It’s powered by a 5 volt micro-usv power supply and connects to your Internet router through use of an Ethernet cable, allowing you to control any Mi Home actuators in your home via an iOS or Android app in addition to a web browser.
