Worcester Wave Intelligent Heating Controls
Worcester Wave Intelligent Heating Control; smart heating and hot water control on the go.
The Wave smart central heating control is the first of a new generation of Worcester intelligent controls. The Wave is a smart, internet-connected programmable control for central heating and hot water which can be operated using a smart phone or tablet. The Wave’s innovative programming enables it to have an ‘intelligent conversation’ with the boiler and take advantage of advanced control features such as weather and load compensation.
Simple to fit
The Wave is easy to install, requiring just a low voltage 2-core wire connection between the control and the boiler. All other connections are via the Wi-Fi network.
Unlike standard weather compensation controls, the Wave does not need an external wired sensor. Instead, the Wave uses online data which significantly reduces installation time and cost.
The Worcester Wave intelligent heating control is compatible with many Greenstar gas-fired boilers and it can also be retrofitted for use with some previous Worcester appliances.
All you need is:
- Worcester Intelligent Wave control
- Compatible Worcester Boiler
- Wi-Fi enabled broadband router – 802.11 b/g
- The Wave app on an compatible Apple or Android Device
Simple to use
The Wave’s intuitive and modern design ensures it is very simple to operate using either its in-built touchscreen or via the Wave app. Simply download the Wave app to your compatible device to take control of your heating system from anywhere in the world where an internet connection is available.
An installation and operating manual is provided with each control and there are a number of helpful videos to provide further detail on specific functions.
Should you temporarily lose your internet connection, the Wave will continue to operate as an intelligent heating and hot water control simply by using the last saved programme settings.
Adapting to your needs
Each Wave control is supplied with a pre-set programme that can then be easily modified to suit your requirements.
The Wave is highly adaptable and can be programmed to ‘pair’ with up to eight devices, which it automatically sense when people are at home. However, sensing to an individual device can be turned off if required.
Unlike most other smart heating controls, the Wave can also programme the hot water settings, providing additional energy savings and comfort.
The Wave will remember preferred programme settings to make these easily available and features a ‘holiday programme’, requiring just a start and finish date.
For security and peace of mind, all the Wave’s data is owned by the user, ensuring no information is shared with other parties.
Did you know?
Modern condensing boilers are most efficient when the central heating system runs at lower temperatures. Weather and load compensation reduce water temperatures and therefore increase efficiency, without compromising user comfort.
Enhanced energy efficiency
The Wave’s advanced programming enables it to have an ‘intelligent conversation’ with the boiler to take advantage of control features such as weather and load compensation. This ensures that the boiler modulates its performance to meet the needs of each household, providing the optimum balance of comfort and efficiency.
The Wave app allows you to see a chart of your heating and hot water usage so that you can easily identify where potential savings could be made.
For example, when you turn your room temperature down a leaf symbol will appear to indicate additional savings are being made.
In the forthcoming ErP Directive (Energy-related Products Directive) coming out of Europe, smart controls like the Wave are recognised as improving the system efficiency by at least 4%, resulting in lower fuel bills.
