The connected programmer Heatzy Pilote
The programmer Heatzy Driver is a connected module that allows you to control your electric heating remotely by connecting your radiator to the Heatzy application available on App Store and Play Store. It offers you 4 different operating modes to meet your needs:
- comfort: this mode automatically activates the heating at a set temperature of 20°C when you are in the room;
- eco: this mode reduces the temperature to 16.5°C to save energy when you have to be away for a relatively short time;
- frost protection: this mode reduces the temperature even more in the event of prolonged absence (such as when going to work);
- OFF: this mode completely turns off the heating, useful when you go on vacation for example.
To find out if your heating is compatible with the Heatzy programmer, check the presence of 3 wires (one red for the phase, one blue for the power supply and one black to control the heating) on your electric heating. The Heatzy Pilote module comes with a detailed user manual to facilitate installation. Once installed, connect the module to your 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network and create a user account to start controlling your radiator remotely. Note that the application is free, you do not need to pay any subscription.

The impact on your heating consumption
The savings made by using a heating programmer are multiple, both financial and ecological.
By installing a heating programmer, you can make significant savings on your energy bills. By regulating the temperature of your home according to your needs, you avoid unnecessary overheating during the night or when you are away, which can reduce your energy consumption by up to 20%. This can allow you to recoup the purchase cost of the controller in just a few years.
In addition to saving money on your energy bills, a heating scheduler also helps you reduce your impact on the environment. By regulating energy consumption, you avoid overconsumption and unnecessary peaks in consumption, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to energy production. By using only the energy you need, you contribute to a more sustainable future.
