Using wireless technology, Electrorad launched a new state-of-the-art Vanguard WiFi range early in the year, that is one of the first to have voice control compatibility with market-leading Amazon Alexa.
With its wireless control via a gateway and App, the range enables ‘voice control’ of the heating system, making it one of the smartest ranges in the marketplace.Whether it’s to turn up the heating or reduce the temperature, the radiators’ heat output can be controlled simply by speaking to Alexa.
Unlike many other equivalents, they also feature an inbuilt RF chip with a signal that can ‘hop’ up to five times to increase the range and help reach remotely-sited radiators.
They also feature a Geo-Location option that automatically reacts based on the homeowners’ proximity to or from the home.
The Vanguard WiFi range offers a wide choice of outputs in 750w, 1200w, 1500w and 2000, and being fully Lot 20 compliant, they feature a number of energy saving controls.
These include Virtual Open Window Sensors – to ensure that radiators stop heating when they sense a draft and restart when the draft stops and Adaptive Start Control that helps radiators learn when to switch on in order to achieve optimum household comfort.
Going beyond Lot 20 compliance, all models also boast an in-built energy monitor.
