In addition to its famous thermostat, Netamo also offers connected thermostatic heads for radiators in order to “control the temperature of your apartment”. The promise is tempting, but are they easy to install and are the results good?
Easy to install and configure via the application, the Netatmo connected thermostatic heads convinced us. They are particularly useful for managing the temperature of your home room by room during the time slots of your choice and without going around all your radiators. Do not expect substantial energy savings from these valves if you are already very committed to reasonable management of your radiators. It is above all the practical aspect which takes precedence here.
- Easy to install thermostatic heads.
- Only one tool required: a precision screwdriver (and even then, just for certain valves).
- Complete and easy to program management application.
- Finely adjustable temperature in half-degree increments.
- The bill rises quickly with the number of radiators.
- Fairly bulky thermostatic heads.
- No remote temperature measurement.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
The small Heatzy Pilote box allows you to effectively control your electric heating from your smartphone; all at a lower cost and without requiring too much technical knowledge. The comfort of use is immediate. However, you will have to deal with the limitations of pilot wire technology which does not allow the temperature to be adjusted remotely. Despite everything, this solution appeals to us with the added bonus of the satisfaction of using a product designed in France.
