Connecting with your heating

Print Friendly

Many of you will have experienced using Bluetooth technology for pairing devices, perhaps to listen to music wirelessly.

But it can also be used as an effective control medium to begin ‘smartening up’ household appliances. This is the approach we have recently adopted at Dimplex, bringing Bluetooth control to our heating products, such as the new EvoRad Bluetooth.

The Dimplex EvoRad range offers a selection of portable radiators featuring patented oil free technology. As well as removing the risk of leaks associated with oil-filled radiators, oil-free radiators warm up faster (up to 17% quicker) and can use 18% less energy to heat a room compared to an oil-filled radiator. This capability is further enhanced through a special fin design created by Dimplex for EvoRad to optimise the conversion of energy into heat and quicken the pace of release.

With the introduction of a Bluetooth interface, the latest generation of EvoRad with its easy to read colour changing LCD display can now also be remotely controlled from a smartphone. Of course we have an app for that!

Dimplex’s Remo is a free to download smartphone app for compatible Android devices and iPhones. It allows you to perform all of the functions that are available on the physical heater, only using your smartphone via Bluetooth.

Current functionality that can now be controlled from your phone includes changing the heater mode between manual to timer, boost or off. With a simple gesture you can adjust the heater’s temperature, or create and edit heating schedules. You can also quickly check the current mode and temperature of the heater on your phone from the comfort of your sofa.

While Bluetooth is limited by range, this actually makes it a better and safer connectivity tool for portable heaters, as you will need to be in relatively close proximity (metres rather than miles) to operate the appliance. We think that is a good choice when it comes to balancing home safety without losing the advantages of modern connectivity.

We are really excited about the possibilities connected technology brings to the home and the way heating and cooling can be managed to be more in-tune with your lifestyle as well as being more cost-effective to run. There will be more Bluetooth connected heating devices coming from Dimplex in the near future and other smart products that will reimagine how we look at the old ‘dumb’ radiator…

EvoRad Bluetooth is available now with an ERP of £130.
