Comfortable temperatures individually set for every room, at the desired time: the new generation of ViCare Smart Climate solutions makes exceptional domestic comfort particularly easy to attain. The single-room control system features a modular design, is easy to install, and can be expanded to include further components at any time. Once installed, homeowners only need the ViCare app to set the correct temperature for each room. The investment is worthwhile, as the ViCare Smart Climate system makes it possible to save up to 15 percent on energy costs.
The modular design of the ViCare Smart Climate system means homeowners can adjust its configuration precisely according to their personal requirements. Take, for instance, a case where one room – the living room – is fitted with ViCare radiator thermostats to begin with. It will then be possible to integrate further rooms in the single-room control system at a later date, such as bedrooms or the children’s playroom. ViCare Smart Climate grows according to its users’ requirements.
ViCare radiator thermostats and ViCare climate sensors communicate wirelessly with the Internet interface. As a result, the system can be expanded at any time without the need to lay cables or wires. The new generation of Vitodens gas condensing boilers and the Vitovalor PT2 and PA2 fuel cell heating devices connect to the Internet using ZigBee, a commonly-used wireless standard for smart home networks. The Vitoconnect Internet interface, available as an accessory, makes it easy to connect floorstanding condensing boilers and heat pumps and to retrofit existing systems.
While the ViCare radiator thermostat measures and controls the temperature of a room according to the homeowner’s settings, the ViCare climate sensor ensures an optimal balance between warmth and humidity. To do so, it takes precise readings of the temperature and humidity. The sensor is powered by an integrated battery that can be charged via a USB-C connection. The very flat climate sensor can be installed by adhesive and magnetic means.
As the online control center, the free ViCare app for iOS or Android mobile devices enables homeowners to control heat generators and single-room control systems with ease. The app makes it possible to set the temperature for each room individually. Time programs for heating and DHW generation help cut energy costs immensely. By directly connecting the heat generator to the system, fuel consumption and the yields from the solar heating system can be precisely calculated and displayed in a neatly arranged summary on the smartphone.
The ViCare app also works in the background to check the heating system’s operating status and, if the homeowner wishes, can automatically notify a specialist partner if any issues are detected. All homeowners need to do to activate this useful function is enter the email address of their chosen specialist company.
ViCare Smart Climate solutions’ high-quality design is particularly impressive. That said, ViCare climate sensors and ViCare thermostats blend into the background and dutifully perform their work.
