Appliances don’t need to be “WiFi ready” to be controlled from a phone any more. All you need to do is replace a fused spur or switch with one of Timeguard’s new FST WiFi units, pair it with the home wi fi and download the free Timeguard App.
So now any space or water heater can become part of the Internet of Things. There’s even a weatherproof option to control outdoor heaters, pumps and lights.
You have remote control over the biggest energy guzzlers in your property, be it your own home, a shop or office, a rental flat or house, or a whole accommodation block with shared wi fi.
The App enables you to set on and off times, add an extra ‘boost’ hour if needed, and just to check at-a-glance whether or not something really is on or off. You can control multiple FST WiFi units from the App allocate limited control over specific appliances to sub users such as family members, colleagues tenants etc.
And, of course, this ingenious unit also provides essential fused spur protection for each appliance.
