Packet Quays, Falmouth
The owner of this waterfront holiday apartment in the beautiful setting of Packet Quays in Falmouth needed better control of the energy used in heating and hot water (please see our Holiday Property/Second Home solution page for the reasons for this).
Kernow Controls fitted a touchscreen programmer in the property that communicates wirelessly to a controller that operates the gas boiler, and also to the property’s WiFi broadband router. We also fully configured the router to allow data traffic through
the necessary coms ports, and created an internet URL mapped directly to the heating controller. This afforded the property owner easy, remote access, via PC and smartphone app, to temperature and status information from the property and the ability to adjust settings when necessary.
A cost effective, convenient and energy saving solution making life easier for the property owner and the company managing the holiday letting.
"Heating and hot water being left on, even when the apartment was unoccupied meant much higher than necessary bills and there was not much we could do about it. Having remote access to the controls and schedules on my iPhone makes it much easier to only burn fuel when it's needed by guests"
