IoT galore with the smart radiator valve
French company Netatmo has launched the latest addition to the smart home – an IoT-enabled radiator valve. The product is claimed to help users to make major savings – up to 37% – on the energy they use to heat their homes by controlling heat on a room-by-room basis. Netatmo, which has previously launched products including smart security cameras and indoor climate monitors, said the new Smart Valve can be fitted on any hot-water radiator and then set a heating schedule for each room based on the habits of their occupants. Users can then customise the temperature of each room in the house from an app.
