Some of the advantages of the EMBER App include:

  • Control your heating and hot water zones via your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
  • Users have the ability to control up to 16 different zones in one home.
  • Users can also control multiple homes from one app – perfect for holiday homeowners and landlords.
  • Multiple users can be added to the home and permissions can be altered on a user by user basis.
  • Convenient boost function will switch heating on for 1, 2 or 3 hours without affecting your heating schedule.
  • Saves you money on your heating bills and limits your carbon footprint.
  • Easy to navigate user interface.
  • New two-way RF components offer far greater penetration of walls and a greater transmission distance.

The system uses 2 way RF heating programmers & thermostats which provide the user with a simple hardware solution. The easy to use components include unique and innovative features such as thermostats with boost buttons which can override the time program on your heating programmer.

These RF components provide a great transmission distance, which enables the user to control temperature in a wide area wirelessly. This is especially useful for retrofit systems as no cables need to be run which can be expensive and difficult in most homes.

The RF components are then connected to the internet via a gateway which connects wirelessly to the home internet. The gateway is simply plugged into a socket and again does not require any expensive or disruptive cabling to be installed.

EMBER is available to download from the Apple iOS Store and Google Play Store at for free. There is also no ongoing charge to the user. Finally, all hardware components come with a market leading 5 year warranty providing the user with peace of mind.
