Lochinvar provides boiler control from smart devices

Published:  05 September, 2017

Lochinvar, Boilers, space heating

Lochinvar has developed a ‘smart’ app-based controller for its Herald range of gas-fired condensing boilers. The Con-X-us system enables users of smart devices such as phones and tablets to connect to the on-board boiler controls so that they can monitor and adjust system operation and heating parameters.

Con-X-us is an ancillary option that can be ordered and fitted to the boiler before despatch or retrofitted on site. The app is free to download and is suitable for iPhone or Android devices. There are no ongoing costs, and the app provides full control over the boiler, with email or text alerts keeping users up to date and connected.

The device can be operated via touchscreen technology or by typing in specific information to adjust setpoints, outdoor reset curves, pump controls and many other functions.

It can also be adjusted to provide temporary access to other users for maintenance or after-sales support so that any operational problems can be resolved quickly. The system can also be configured by the main user to allow up to three more people to receive email or text alerts.

Colour-codes status alerts indicate if the boiler needs attention or servicing — as well as describing any potential problem and offering a solution.
