Smart thermostats for electric radiators

#1

Hi everyone,

I see there are quite a few smart thermostats like Nest, which work with several types of heating systems. However, I have only been able to find one which works with electrical radiators, I think. I am looking for one which will work with radiators either connected to a wall plug or directly to the “grid”. Anybody got experience with them, got recommendations?

Would this work?

I have the earlier version of the Sinope thermostats (with a hub and their own proprietary communication protocol) and they work quite well. There’s also MySA and Stelpro, but I don’t have any experience with the latter two.

Hi,

Stelpro offers line-voltage thermostat in Z-Wave or Zigbee.

I contacted Sinopé and asked if they have thermostats for 3 phase 400 V electric radiators (which is common for European households) and unfortunately they don’t. This is how my radiators are connected, so I will have to check out other options.

Uh that might be tough. I haven’t seen any 3p smart thermostats. Another option would be a 3p contractor with a 24v coil and transformer controlled by a regular low voltage smart stat.

Hi @Qliver! Did you ever find a solution for electric radiators?

Unfortunately not. Or rather, I didn’t continue my search because at that time it didn’t seem like there were any.
