so i have been using this site when i am authoring device types etc… so i can see the logo’s and a new category called Navien has cropped up. but the only thing i see when googling is something about tankless water heaters, but cant see the link to Samsung or ST
Seems to be a Korean manufacturer of HVAC and various green technology products. Seems like a good candidate for a partnership over there.
The Navien product I have is indeed a wall-mounted tank-less water heater. It runs on electricity but heats up water via natural gas producing hot-water on demand.
Never need to worry about running out of hot-water ever and so far has been very reliable with really no maintenance other making sure the air-filter is clean. The filter is cleaned once a year.
The initial cost is high, if I remember correctly it was approx. ~$4500CDN installed by the home builder, but worth it as there is no wasted heat with a water tank constantly being heated.
Any updates on partnering with Navien. We are installing one of these in our home along with the NaviLink WiFi connector and would love the capibility to add it as a device in SmartThings.
Searching in the app I don’t see Navien listed any longer.
