The normative states the installation must be executed only by specialized technicians and without power supply. The installation is very simple though, you just need to connect the two cables managing the opening and closure of your heating system’s relay following the same connections of the thermostat you replace (NC – NO). If the old thermostat had cables to connected to 230V power supply, you need to isolate them.
It depends on the type of heating. Generally speaking, if there is a thermostat in the apartment for a personal regulation of the temperature, the system is compatible.
Yes, it’s system is compatible with underfloor heating. In the free App you can find a dedicated setting useful for avoiding a complete switching off of the underfloor heating system, to manage it the best way, save energy and money.
ECO time zone can be set and customized depending on users’ needs. With geolocation option active, the app lets you automatically switch to ECO depending on your position.
Can it be used for multi-area radiator systems? Should I install one thermostat for each room or are there other elements to be installed?
Yes, the App is made to manage up to 12 independent thermostats to monitor up to 12 indepentent areas. You shall install one thermostat for each room and pair it to the Tyrrell Smart Home Smart Hub gateway using the free App.
Is it possible to manage a system with heating and a system with cooling, thus managing the summer and winter periods?
Yes. You have the possibility to manage both winter (heating) and summer (cooling) temperatures and systems.
I own a house with 2 levels, each one has it’s own independent thermostat. Could I manage 2 separate thermostats, one for each level?
Yes, it is a multi-thermostat system which allows you to manage up to 12 independent thermostats, using the free App on your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.
The free App is currently only available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, but unfortunately not for Blackberry OS or Windows phones.
My daily time schedule changes frequently, so I cannot tell in advance when I’m home. Can I switch the heating on whilst on my way back home with the free App?
Yes. With the geolocation function you can set your house’s GPS position on the map and the minimum distance to switch the heating on when you are, say, 500m / 1km/ 1,5 km / 2 km/ 2.5 km or 3km distant from home.
Yes. In case you have geolocation function activated and you have defined a program of the thermostat that considers your distance from home you can keep the GPS geolocation switched off on your smartphone or tablet if you are far away from the minimum distance set on the App.
Otherwise, if you are coming back home and you wish to track your GPS position, then switch on geolocation on your mobile device before reaching minimum distance set, because your mobile phone needs a technical time to triangulate your GPS position precisely.
You cannot switch the Thermostat off completely, but you can choose the manual control setting a low ‘safety temperature’ or changing the daily and weekly program selecting the “OFF” light blue program.
Is it possible to set which daily hours or days of the week that the thermostat is operating the heating system?
The free App allows you to create a daily and weekly program for each daily time, either depending on the geolocation function or not.
Then you can decide, within a particular time band, to consider your GPS geographical position to switch on or off the heating system.
The Smat Hub control unit is included in “Tyrrell Smart Home Thermostat Bundle (Thermostat + Smart Hub)”: once connected to the domestic modem, it allows you to access Thermostat’s configuration from the free App wherever you are.
Yes. You can manually vary temperature setting on your thermostat with two +/- touch buttons, displaying the value set on the App. The programming function of the weekly thermostat, which is exclusively managed from the App, is not available though.
Warning: a manual variation on the Thermostat is kept until 23:59 of the same day. Then, Tyrrell Smart Home automatically retakes chrono function.
Can the programming of the chronothermostat be managed directly from the App or can I only monitor the functioning?
You can manage the daily and weekly program via the free App your iOS and Android device, from which you can also monitor functioning of your system using a chart displaying ambient temperature, set temperature and time bands where Tyrrell Smart Home switches heating on and off.
Tyrrell Smart Home can manage up to 12 independent wireless thermostats: in your case, you can install one thermostat in each room you wish to monitor, and then set the desired temperatures.
Can I manage my heating system from my mobile phone or tablet even if I’m not connected to the same Wi-Fi?
Yes. You just need to be connected to internet: your smartphone or tablet and your Smart Hub gateway must be connected to the internet.
The free App for iOS and Android allows you to manage your Thermostat via Wi-Fi or mobile data.
Tyrrell Smart Home is not a modulating thermostat: it does not handle heating’s flame power but only on/off switching.
Typically, modulating thermostats, in order to communicate with the heating’s boiler, only work with same brand boilers.
At home I have 5 radiators and a unique programmable thermostat: with Tyrrell Smart Home, is it possible to manage individual radiators without installing valves on each radiator?
No. Tyrrell Smart Home can manage up to 12 independent zones already equipped with an electric control.
Our thermostat will replace any existing thermostats to manage the whole heating system. It does not manage single radiators.
Our thermostat is an intelligent chronotermostat with all the functions of a traditional programmable thermostat, to which we added smart features such as remote management, programming based on the inhabitants’ distance from home and the possibility to monitor heating’s functioning, described by a graph.
To make Tyrrell Smart Home a “universal” thermostat, the creators couldn’t make it communicate additional information to boilers, because every boiler talks a proprietary language to thermostats of the same brand.
Replacing your current thermostat with ours means losing this functionality.
Yes, Siemens Rev12 thermostat works with an on/off contact so you can replace it with our thermostat.
How do I know if I can install Tyrrell Smart Home instead of the programmable thermostat I’m now using?
Our thermostat is compatible and can replace all thermostat and chronotermostats that control heating’s on/off switching with a electrical C (COM), NO and NC connections. Typically you only need to replicate old thermostat’s connections.
To figure out if your current thermostat is compatible you can send us its exact brand and model number. If it’s possible please attach front and rear photos of your thermostat with visible contacts.
