Control your heating wherever, whenever with Worcester's new Wave smart control
- Worcester's new Wave Smart controller takes comfort, control and efficiency to the next level.
- Manage and change your heating and hot water setting from your smart phone or tablet using a wireless internet connection.
- Good-looking, intuitive and easy to use.
Working with a wide range of Worcester's highly efficient Greenstar gas-fired boiler the Wave combines a room thermostat and programmable control in one sleek black glass unit.
Intuitive and easy to use, the Wave can show you at-a-glance the current temperature of your home, your desired settings and whether the heating is running at its most efficient.
Depending on your needs the Wave can fill the role of a state-of-the-art programmable control but, through a free clever App on your smart device, it gives you so many more useful easy to use options and puts you in control of your comfort whether you are home or away.
For instance, there is no need to arrive home to a cold house as you can switch your heating or hot water on remotely using the app on your smart device via an internet connection.
Unlike many other models on the market, the Wave takes into account the current room temperature and only fires the boiler at the necessary level - to maintain your desired comfort temperature; making for a much more efficient system.
Advanced features come as standard
A Weather Compensating Feature can be activated and will use your postcode to determine local weather conditions to make sure your home stays at a comfort level automatically in line with the temperature outside, without the need for external sensors.
The Smartphone Presence Detection feature senses when your phone is in the house and will switch the heating on only when you are home and even switch it off 20 minutes after you have gone out - so no more leaving the heating on unnecessarily!
Monitor your energy usage
The amount of energy you use on heating and hot water can often be an unknown figure, so helping you to monitor this with ease the App can track your fuel usage on a month by month basis, showing clearly any peaks and allowing you to change heating habits accordingly to cut wasted energy. If you turn the temperature down below your pre-set temperatures, a leaf indicator also shows you at-a-glance when you are running your system even more effectively.
Is my data secure?
Importantly, all of this information is stored only on the Wave and not on any external servers, keeping your data private and secure. Should you loose internet connection at any point, the Wave will still operate as an intelligent room thermostat without it too.
Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Support at Worcester said:
"Keeping our homes warm and welcoming is important and with so many of us using smart phones and tablets on a daily basis, the Wave control means that we can use this portability to make sure our homes are both comfortable and efficient at all times. It puts homeowners back in control of how and when the heating and hot water comes on; so the heating can be turned off remotely if not needed or even powered up if we are heading home early. The beauty of the Wave system is that is gives additional options to monitor the temperature of the house and only put the boiler on at the power that is absolutely necessary, to create programmes around individual usages or even change it in line with the weather, to make an effective system that works around the homeowner."
The Wave smart controller is simple to fit by an installer as it doesn't need an extra hub into your router or any mains voltage wiring as it is powered by low voltage wires which your installer will connect directly to your Worcester boiler. All updates to the App are automatic and free-of-charge to make sure you always have the latest version.
