EasyControl CT200 – smart control for heating and hot water
The EasyControl is a multizone internet-connected programmable smart thermostat for heating and hot water system control, which can be operated using this app.
Once installing this app, there is the option to run the app in demo mode, without access to the internet, an EasyControl or a compatible heating appliance to showcase the extensive features and simplicity of use. The EasyControl is compatible with multiple brands of appliances, e.g., Bosch, Nefit, Worcester, Junkers, elm Leblanc among others.
Individual temperature control
Witt the EasyControl it is possible to set up to 20 zones (or rooms), each with its individual schedule and set temperatures. This ensures you have the right comfort temperature in each zone and that each zone only heats when you want therefore saving energy. The control of the temperature in the individual zones requires the installation of the optional EasyControl's smart radiator thermostats.
Simple to use
The EasyControl intuitive operation and modern design ensures it is very simple to operate using either its built-in colour touch-screen or the app.
• Supplied with a pre-set schedules that can then be easily modified to fit your needs.
• The EasyControl features a ‘vacation mode’, requiring just a beginning and end date. You can also set up other type of events such a national holiday or a day at home.
• A quick installation guide is provided with each EasyControl. Additional information is available at the website: www.bosch-easycontrol.com including the product manuals, a list of compatible appliances and helpful videos that provide further detail on specific functions.
The EasyControl’s advanced programming enables it to have an ‘intelligent conversation’ with the appliance to take advantage of features which help improve energy efficiency, such as:
• Load and weather compensation which reduce the appliance water temperature to help further increase efficiency, while also increasing user comfort.
• Unlike other smart heating controls, the EasyControl can also control your domestic hot water settings, helping provide additional energy savings and comfort.

Very poor is an understatement
The app is very slow and will crash regularly resulting in having to log back in. The main problem with this is it makes the home/away feature (the main selling point for me) practically useless; will often leave the house and as the app has crashed it will not turn of the heating or vis versa not turn on he heating when returned home. Once you notice this you and try open the app you get a blue screen, having to open and close it several times to get it running again at which point is does what it should and turn the heating on or off. Its a shame that it fails to work most of the time as it is quite user friendly and has good boiler controllability.
I would say don't waste your time or money though, get a hive system, after seeing my friends i am going to take the financial hit and just bin my new bosch easy control and invest in a hive, don't think i will be using bosch again, shame i just invested in one of their new boilers.
When the app is launched it opens fine. Then, you go to open it again later and it crashes at the opening blue screen. You have to swipe the app up to close it, then re-open it.
It is also a very slow app to open. I understand it needs to connect back to the system, but we had Hive before this and that was faster to open.
Would like to ask for a feature please - can you add a ‘boost’ function - so you have manual plus the scheduled but also a boost - for both hot water and heating. Sometimes you just want a quick warm up - not to have to keep diving in to make it manual to make a change, just a quick warm up for heating, or heat the water in the tank up to its heat.
Also - it is a complicated app - much more so than Hive - it would be tremendously helpful to simplify it please, I work in IT, I am not a technophobe but even I find it complex!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your detailed review, we are currently working on the blue screen issue and it should be fixed soon. The boost function is a great idea, however it will increase the energy consumption.
We wish you a warm winter :) LS
Last update v3.0
When the thermostat updated to v3.0 I lost the radiator connections. Spoke to Bosch technical who had all the time in the world to help me. Reset all five to factory settings (must be done). These are RF 800Mhz not Wi-Fi .
I mentioned poor Wi-Fi and internet connection (With Bosch only) which I used BT WholeHome on the 2.4Ghz channel. I since then have put back in to use a dedicated 2.4Ghz Access Point just for the EasyControl, perfect!
Previously I had trouble with intermittent internet connection so didn’t always have a correct outside temperature reading, plus really unreliable readings of all room temperatures.
I’m not saying everyone should have a dedicated 2.4Ghz but what I read on here points to unreliable connection to the Bosch Server.
