Underfloor heating ensures even heat distribution, promotes a better indoor climate and also saves energy. All wired, water-carrying, underfloor heating systems can now be conveniently and easily controlled and the heating cycles can be set for each room individually by the Bosch Smart Home
room thermostat for underfloor heating systems – directly on the device, intuitively by voice command or via smartphone when the user is away from home. This means that heat is provided only when it is really needed. Unlike conventional devices: if no one is home and the residents have forgotten to switch of the heat, they can turn off the heat conveniently, easily and remotely via smartphone. If residents are on their way home, they can preset the desired room temperature simply by tapping a fingertip against the smartphone – for a warm welcome in their own four walls.
Underfloor heating 2.0 – convenient and efficient heating
Whether via smartphone when the user is away from home, directly on the device when the user is at home or by calling out a voice command: not only can the temperature of wired, water-carrying, underfloor heating systems be regulated conveniently and easily, but individual heating cycles and flexible schedules can also be preset and stored for each room by the Bosch Smart Home Room Thermostat underfloor heating. Infrequently used rooms can be heated less than rooms in which residents spend more time, e.g. the living room. Built-in sensors in the room thermostat measure temperature and relative humidity with room-by-room accuracy – for even more efficient and energy-saving heating. Room thermostats, underfloor heating, central heating and other Bosch Smart Home devices integrated in the Bosch Smart Home System automatically communicate with each other: there’s no unnecessary heating because warmth is provided only when and where it’s really needed.
Simple operation – directly on the device or via smartphone from outside the home
The underfloor heating room thermostat from Bosch Smart Home offers maximum ease of use. The room temperature and all settings can be controlled easily and intuitively via the rotatable ring with integrated pushbutton. Alternatively, underfloor heating can also be conveniently operated with a smartphone via the Bosch Smart Home App. This offers many options for integration into diverse scenarios. For example, the room temperature can be conveniently cooled from 21°C to 19°C via the augmented “Leave House” scenario. In addition, with the help of a Bosch Smart Home universal switch, the preferred settings for underfloor heating can be controlled by simple hand movements: for example, a brief press triggers a two-hour heating pause. If the resident is planning to be out of the house for a longer interval, a long press activates the “Eco Mode” – perfect for achieving additional energy savings. If users forget to switch off the underfloor heating system, they can do it conveniently and remotely via smartphone. If a user has both hands full, the room thermostat underfloor heating can also be conveniently controlled via voice command with Amazon Alexa. All it takes is a simple voice command: “Alexa, set the room temperature to 22°C!”
