We have a (relatively) new gadget, it's called climote
and we’re pretty proud of it. It allows you to control your heating from anywhere via an app, by text or online. It’s simple and easy to use and can cut up to 20% off your heating bills. But don’t take our word for it - Simon Moynihan from bonkers.ie
, Ireland's largest price comparison site, reviewed it and here’s what he had to say…
"....sophisticated and simple"
“The climote works like a regular digital heating controller. You can set schedules, boost the heat, turn on the water and so on - just like any other modern controller. In fact, I could do all that stuff with my old one. What makes the climote different is that it has its own mobile phone number and it can send and receive text messages. This sounds complicated, but it’s not really. It’s just how the climote communicates with you when you’re not standing beside it.
The online and iPhone apps both look great and are really easy to use. They both have graphic representations of the old circular crunch-button heating timers, and you can use a mouse or your thumb to move them around and set schedules. Once you’re done, these apps then send text messages to the climote and tell it what to do.
"...with fuel prices going in just one direction, anything that helps cut those bills will be welcome"
This all means that when you’re away from the controls you can use the climote iPhone app to turn on the heat and water, or use the online app to set schedules. But you don’t even need to do that. A quick text from any old mobile will do the trick. And that’s the beauty of the climote – it’s sophisticated, but it’s simple too.
Wondering if the house is warm enough before leaving work? Just launch the app, or text “Report” and it’ll tell you. On the way home early on a cold and rainy day? No bother. Just pull out the phone and turn on the heat. And that’s one of the nicest things about the climote - never having to come back to a cold home."
