eQ-3 MAX! Affordable Wireless Heating Control with your Smartphone or Raspberry Pi

eQ-3 MAX! Affordable Wireless Heating Control with your Smartphone or Raspberry Pi | Reduce those heating bills | Scoop.it

Hello Max - One solution that’s being discussed in there more and more is ‘MAX!’ from German manufacturer ‘eQ-3′.  A system of inexpensive components including wireless battery operated TRV’s that easily retro-fit to your existing radiators without the need for a plumber, or to drain your system.  Once MAX! is installed, it will control each radiators motorised valve individually, creating a zoned heating system with higher efficiency and in turn reduced bills.

Will Jenkyns's insight:

Do you have any experience of these devices? The 27% reduction - I wonder whether that is based on households who, say, have the heating on 24-7 already, as opposed to twice a day as we do.
