Schneider Electric Wiser test of connected thermostat for electric heaters: complete and scalable system

The smartphone application is the same as the one that was introduced during Device test for gas boilers. It gets updated regularly and now lets you notify you if the device’s batteries are running low, for example.

We find an organization by room with a double temperature display for each: it is currently measured (here in this case by a thermostat) and which is regulated (the target temperature somehow). The Boost mode allows you to manually set the room temperature for between 30 minutes and 3 hours. In our case, the two actuators located in the same room controlled by the thermostat, all of our settings, including the booster, would be transferred simultaneously to the two radiators.

Of course, the main advantage of Wiser’s solution is the quick and easy creation of the program. This is subtle, with freely adjustable ranges that may be different every day.

Using products from the Wiser range, it will be possible to copy the program from a room heated by a hot water cooler to another, this time with electric heating; This is transparently for the user. Note that the conventional modes (ECO Mode, Comfort, etc.) of the electric heater no longer appear. Brand experts assured us that the cooler maintains control of a few smart functions, such as the open window detection that equips two Sauter radiators.

So the app is complete and easy to use. It allows you to set the heating behavior of your home with a few taps on your smartphone screen. It’s stable, with an interface in French of course. Wiser’s solutions interfaces with Amazon Alexa and Google Home as well as with the IFTTT app. The web interface can be a plus for taking advantage of a computer’s large screen, but other than that, there are no complaints.

Compared to the Konyks and Heatzy apps, the Wiser Home seemed to us to be more comfortable in general but above all richer in its functionality.
