I recently decided to replace my central heating programmer with a programmable thermostat, and decided to go for the geeky option: a wi-fi connected model! The thermostat is designed to be flush mounted into a standard 35mm deep single back box. I chose the latter option to save money, but will have it flush mounted at a later date. I will be interested to see what effect flush-mounting has on the Wi-Fi signal strength, if any. I would personally prefer the backlight to come on when touching any part of the screen not just an icon and the unit to only respond to icon presses when the backlight is on.

You can also view and set heating programmes, set the clock, enable temperature hold and holiday modes from the touch screen. I found setting the time slightly strange, as the down button changes the hour down and the up button changes the minute up — changing the date works in a similar way with the month and day — but this is something that is rarely necessary to change and can be done from the Web interface or iPhone app anyway.
TXT — which contains the network configuration information in plain text, which could easily be edited by hand by users of other platforms such as Mac or Linux. The device requires a static IP address, and port must be forwarded via the router if remote connection via the iPhone app is required.
The main interface allows you to view and adjust heating programmes, temporarily override the temperature, lock the keypad remotely, set the clock and change network settings.
The iPhone app, a free download from the App Store, is similarly utilitarian. It allows you to see the current temperature rounded to the nearest degree, unlike the browser interface , set temperature which can be adjusted and heat status. You can also view and adjust heating programmes via the app. One quirk of the app is that you have to select whether you want to connect locally i.
It would be nice if the app could determine whether you are home or away and select the corresponding connection method dynamically. The interface is fairly bland but it does the job.
I was left scratching my head for a while, as I was originally able to connect via my Web browser but not via the iPhone app. Again this is something that should perhaps be mentioned in the manual.
Heatmiser tweeted me and pointed me towards their document download area which contains some useful information. Hi there, great article and thanks for taking the time to post. Since installing wireless and LaN connections are slowed right down. Could this be interference channels? Hi Al, thanks for your kind comments. Ive just moved in and they have a Heatmiser in the bathroom. When a laptop is connected it works fine.
But as soon as the laptop is disconnected it goes dead and all the information is erased. Any ideas? Sounds like this has failed and needs replacing. If you have no luck with this, maybe try connecting your laptop to the Heatmiser without taking it off the wall first, so it retains mains power.
Obviously if you go down this route you will have to set up the device via your laptop each time you have a power cut.
These are no longer made by Heatmisesr but if someone has one they would like to sell please let me know. Well seems there are a few of us with an old hm and that want it to keep on working.
It worked perfectly fro me since 4 years. However after reattacching the device I have trouble accesing it through the app android s7 marshmallow. I see the hm has connection to my wifi. However this setup would be fine for me. Your email address will not be published.
