Features and Smart Home Compatibilities
Warmup’s 5iE and 4iE Smart Thermostats work automatically to control the heating management of your home, on your behalf and are packed full of unique features that work intuitively to provide you with truly optimised heating. With no need to program, the thermostats learn how you use your heating to calculate more efficient settings and are simple to use and ideal for a more energy-conscious, ecological way of life.
How to Save you up to £378 a year?
By greatly reducing energy wastage, the 4iE or the 5iE can save you up to £378 a year on your annual energy bills. Using the thermostat in conjunction with the Warmup AutoSwitch and MyHeating apps allow such features as remote access, tariff-switching and routine learning capabilities through Warmup’s SmartGeo technology.
Via the IFTTT platform, Warmup Smart Thermostats offer compatibility with other Smart Home products in your home – allowing you to communicate with the Thermostat through an Amazon Echo or other Smart Home Assistant.
The 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat: For Underfloor Heating Systems
The 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat is an advanced thermostat that is recommended to use with an underfloor heating system.
Whether your home uses Water or Electric Underfloor Heating, the 4iE is ideal to automatically control and regulate your home’s heating. Featuring advanced technologies, the 4iE makes sure your underfloor heating system is at the right temperature, at the right time, for you.
The 5iE Wireless Smart Thermostat: For Central Heating Systems
Designed with your comfort, energy-efficiency and cost-savings in mind, the 5iE Wireless Smart Thermostat is Warmup’s first thermostat to be designed for use with your home’s central heating system.
Using the included Boiler Receiver and Power Base Stand, the 5iE communicates wirelessly with your existing combination boiler through walls and floors; allowing a mobile central heating controller. Connect the Boiler Receiver to your boiler and then place the stand mounted 5iE anywhere in your home to bring warmth to wherever you are, automatically.
The 5iE and the 4iE: Giving you more than you might think
With glass effect front faces and bevelled chrome edges, Warmup Smart Thermostats are designed to look great in your home or office, whether your space is modern or more traditional in style. Featuring a full colour touchscreen, you can also personalise the Thermostat with customisable photographic backgrounds. Using the MyHeating app also allows you to see how the thermostat would look on different surfaces by presenting a ‘virtual’ thermostat on your smartphone’s screen.
Natural Language Programming
For ease of use, the thermostats use Natural Language Programming to communicate with you using familiar terms and phrases to understand the specific requirements for your heating program. For example, it may ask you “What time do you get home from work?” to help provide you with an ideal heating program that suits your schedule.
Traffic Warning System
With a my.warmup account, you can set up an optional traffic warning system to operate directly from the Home Screen of the thermostat. Simply enter your driving route to work and the thermostat will alert you to any potential traffic jams along the main roads of your journey; a Green Car Icon signalling clear roads, an Orange Car for some delays and a Red Car for heavy traffic. By touching the car icon, you can get a detailed assessment of that day’s traffic.
The 4iE and 5iE also communicate wirelessly with a Global weather service to let you know the week’s weather forecast and have the capability of receiving messages and information updates from Warmup directly.
Works with Warmup Smartphone Apps for smarter, more energy-efficient heating
Learning your routines through background communication with your smartphone through the MyHeating app, Warmup’s SmartGeo technology communicates your location with the Smart Thermostat for truly optimal, automatic heating management.
Learning your Routines
SmartGeo informs the thermostat to lower your home’s temperature when it is vacant and raise it to an ideal comfort temperature in time for your arrival back – meaning you will never come home to a cold house again. After using a Smart Thermostat for a few weeks, the MyHeating app will have a good understanding of what time the resident’s leave the house and when they come back – and how frequently people dash in and out too – to create an organic, automatic heating schedule. SmartGeo can also track unexpected delays or change of plans, only heating the home when it is sure you are returning.
In-Built Geo-Location Feature for Intelligent Temperature Control
SmartGeo is more advanced than typical Occupancy Sensing Technology in other thermostats, which only alerts the heating system to start once someone arrives home as with SmartGeo the system is gradually warmed up in time for the occupant’s arrival. Also, unlike the common Geo-Fencing Technology, which only alerts the heating system as someone leaves or enters its system boundary (thereby causing significant energy wastage), SmartGeo accurately reads your location and controls the heating accordingly.
SmartGeo optimises heating schedules and enables the most cost-efficient and energy-conscious solution for your exact requirements. All without having to set up any complicated programmes.
Use with the MyHeating and AutoSwitch apps and save up to £378 a year
Warmup’s MyHeating app allows remote access to control your home’s underfloor or central heating from wherever you are. Available to download onto an Android or iOS supported smartphone, MyHeating enables energy monitoring and usage data for the heating system and its continual use alongside the 4iE or 5iE can offer savings of up to 25% on your heating bill.
Working alongside Warmup’s Smart Thermostats, the AutoSwitch smartphone app uses tariff-switching to guarantee you the best energy deal on the marketplace.
Completely independent from energy suppliers, Warmup’s AutoSwitch app browses through the market to find the best value energy tariff available for you and automatically switches you onto the best tariff each year.
Benefits & Savings
Over the past 4 years, UK households have paid £8.5 Billion too much for their energy – due to the fact that when you sign up with an energy supplier you will only get their best deal for the first twelve months. After that initial period is up, you are automatically moved to their standard rate – often at a significantly higher price. AutoSwitch works in the background to keep you on the best value tariff every year, effortlessly and automatically – saving you an average of £210 per year.
The combined savings of Using a Warmup Smart Thermostat alongside the AutoSwitch and MyHeating apps can be £378 per year.
Control using the Amazon Echo Voice Assistant
You can control your 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat for underfloor heating or 5iE Wireless Smart Thermostat for central heating systems through the Amazon Echo.
Use the Amazon Echo in partnership with the MyHeating app to control your home’s heating with your voice. Simply enable the Skill in the Alexa app or ask Alexa to install.
To use the skill, start by setting up which one of your thermostats you want Alexa to communicate with. Alexa works in tandem with the MyHeating app so if you already have a heating schedule set up and then use Alexa to temporarily raise the temperature, the temperature will automatically revert to your preferred heating schedule when required.
Connects with other Smart Home technologies through IFTTT
You can connect a Warmup Smart Thermostat with other Smart devices in your home via the IFTTT platform.
IFTTT allows communication between all the different Smart Home technologies you use in your home. Through IFTTT, Warmup Smart Thermostats are compatible with a whole range of Smart Home technologies including Phillips Hue devices, SmartThings, the Goggle Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa and many, many more.
You can use Warmup’s IFTTT Applets or even create your own to get your homes Smart devices speaking to each other – working together to create a more intuitive, fully-realised Smart Home.
