Exciting future ahead for electric heating
The need for smart electric heating and water heating is becoming ever more present. To meet this demand, Dimplex have future proofed their heater range by releasing the ‘Dimplex Control’ App. For a number of years Dimplex Control has been rolled out to the flagship ranges, including Quantum RF storage heaters, Edel RF Water Cylinders and Quantum RF Water Cylinders and QRAD Electric Radiators. With the new release of the Series B panel heater range Dimplex have vastly expanded their Smart Heating range to include a full range of heating options including Panel Heaters, Towel Rails and expanded compatiblity for Water Heaters and Electric Radiators. See the below table for full details on compatible lines
What can the new app do?
The Control App allows users to control multiple heaters and locations, both individually and zonally. Adjust the temperature or heating mode, spot faults, set a timer and track your energy usage. Even better, you can control your heating while you are on holiday from your smartphone or tablet. Each heater will be connected through the Dimplex Hub and controlled by the Control App. Excluding the Dimplex Quantum and Edel ranges, all will require the a Hub and RF module to be connected to the App. Series B heaters require a short bluetooth update to allow for smart compaatibility.
