Your wish is our command

Drayton Controls is celebrating the launch of its miGenie range of internet connected heating controls by offering HVP readers the chance to win one of eight control packs, known as miGenie Wishes

The new collection adds a touch of magic to your life by making smart technology simple. British-built to last, the miGenie Wishes are suitable for all applications to make installation easier.
The miGenie Wishes feature heating controls similar to those of the Drayton MiTime and MiStat range. However,

miGenie devices use smart technology, enabled by an app that users download onto an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, or Apple Watch.

Products contained within the miGenie Wishes are pre-bound and have a standard backplate, meaning they are easy to retrofit and can be installed straight from the box in as little as ten minutes. The controls are simple to operate too, featuring familiar buttons and icons, and step-by-step instructions for set up.  
       
Installation benefits
• Familiar installation
•  Standard industry backplate for easy upgrade
•  No wiring needed (if a standard backplate exists)
•  Pre-bound two-way wireless connection – Signal strength indicator for correct placement
•  Quick and simple to install
•  Straightforward internet setup – no special equipment or codes required.

There are three different miGenie Wishes available – each including a combination of complementary products, offering a solution for every installation no matter what the requirements.

The miGenie Wish 1 pack includes a single channel controller, room thermostat and internet gateway, ideal for time and temperature control of combination boilers, giving the installer the option to upgrade controls without the need for re-wiring.

The miGenie Wish 2 pack includes a dual-channel controller, room thermostat and Internet gateway, ideal for time and temperature control of conventional boilers. Installers can upgrade time control and thermostat without re-wiring and use with an existing cylinder thermostat.

The miGenie Wish 3 pack includes a multi-channel controller, two room thermostats and internet gateway. It is suitable for time and temperature control in larger properties, and an existing cylinder thermostat can be wired in so that two thermostats provide zone control for heating.

“As the rise of smart technology becomes commonplace, more and more consumers are requesting heating controls that can be controlled via mobile devices, that’s why we have developed miGenie,” said Simon May, product manager at Drayton Controls.

“The standard backplate means you can upgrade controls in minutes; the pre-bound two-way wireless connection means units are ready to go straight out of the box; and the signal strength indicator ensures correct positioning first time. All that’s left to do is plug the internet gateway into the home router and “alakazam”– installation can be done and dusted in just 10 minutes.

“Once the homeowner has downloaded the app, heating and hot water can be controlled from a phone, tablet or watch, so wherever they are, they can be in complete control. No longer will they be a slave to their heating schedule...they can be its master!”
