A Smart Connected Thermostat
Learns a household’s weekly routine…
…and turns the heating off when no one is home.
Works passively even with minimal resident engagement…
…and displays information in a simple and intuitive way.
Compares energy usage with neighbouring properties…
… and prompts residents to turn the heating down.
Saves Residents Money
Switchee detects occupancy and learns in the background, creating an optimum heating profile without any user interaction.
Switchee lowers energy bills by turning the heating off when nobody is at home. It knows when the heating should be off and cuts energy wastage at source.
Switchee has simple, intuitive controls. Residents can easily operate the device without instruction and, if required, adjust the temperature themselves.
Helps Asset Managers
Switchee fights fuel poverty and increases energy efficiency at a lower unit cost than alternative solutions such as solar PV or air and ground source heat pumps.
By monitoring humidity levels in the home, Switchee can identify high-risk properties before mould growth becomes a problem.
Switchee can be configured to send alerts if the temperature in a property drops below safe winter levels. This can reduce the potential for health complications for high dependency residents.
Switchee can suggest and schedule boiler services via its touchscreen. Switchee is connected to the boiler and can help service teams optimise boiler callouts.
Landlords can use Switchee to send messages directly to residents. Reminders and tips are displayed on screen.
Installation by our qualified electricians takes 60 minutes. The Switchee team can manage Switchee service callouts so that no burden is added to landlords’ maintenance resources.
