The new Wave from Worcester is a smart, internet-connected programmable control for central heating and hot water.
Compatible with a wide range of Worcester's award-winning Greenstar gas-fired boiler , the sophisticated device allows heating and hot water to be adjusted from a smart phone or tablet using a wireless internet connection.
The sleek black glass wall-mounted panel is simple to install and connects to the boiler using a low voltage two wired connection directly to the boiler PCB.
Through an easy-to-use free App, homeowners can take complete control of their heating and hot water, whether at home, at work, or on holiday. The App not only allows remote adjustment of heating and hot water performance via Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G network connection, but also provides valuable information on gas consumption for both heating and hot water. This helps homeowners to manage bills during a time of rising energy costs.
Worcester's intuitive device combines a room thermostat and programmable control in one stylish unit. Intuitive and easy to use, the Wave can show the homeowner the current temperature of their home, their desired settings and whether the heating is running at its most efficient, at-a-glance.
What's different about the wave?
Unlike many other smart controls on the market, the Wave Smart Thermostat boasts load compensation; taking into account the current room temperature and only firing the boiler at the necessary level for more efficient use of fuel, to maintain peak efficiency levels.
A Weather compensation feature meanwhile, boosts efficiency even further by referencing the property's postcode to determine local weather conditions. This negates the need to install a north facing sensor externally to the property, making installation simple.
The control can also use presence detection via smartphone location to adjust heating levels in line with attendance at home and the desired personal comfort settings.
