Description

We have just started using your product and like it very much because it is not tied to just one type of home automation. We do however feel that at the moment the focus is largely on controlling electrical appliances and that there is a lot of duplication between the supported devices. We would very much like to see support for central heating controls. Since in the average home approximately 60% of the energy used is in heating the house and hot water, this would make a very attractive addition and make you much more competitive with other products such as:

the Conrad FS20 system, HomeMatic, and the LightwaveRF system (JSJS heating controls to be released next month). Please see:

 http://www.lightwaverf.com/ and  http://www.jsjsdesigns.com/

We recommend that you look at integration with some of the mainstream heating controls from Honeywell, Danfoss, etc. as a number of their wireless controls already operate on 433 MHz - for example:

Danfoss tp5000-rf si or tp5000-rf so and rx-2 or rx-2c

This would need to be two way communication i.e. being able to see the status of the heating and temperatures in the house remotely as well as being able to turn the heating on and off remotely is critical to the application working well. This would also allow users to control their heating from an iPhone or Android device or even a browser.

Please also see your main support Ticket: 4628.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter,

Best regards
Julian

Hi,
I just installed telldus system for controlling some of our lights and liked it already. This central heating integration would be more than I could imagine. Is there any news about this?
