It works but there is room for improvement.

SETUP

Setup took me a couple of hours.

There were a few issues connecting to the heat hub, this was resolved by moving my Wi-Fi access point closer to the heat hub (the bit that connects to the boiler).

The TRV heads were not willing to go into setup mode as easy as the manual suggested. They needed fiddling with a bit more.

I live in a three bed brick house and all the TRVs are connected on a weak signal. I have ordered a booster/plug to improve the signal.

THE APP

It is well laid out and easy to use. It is not as feature rich as the likes of Nest.

Scheduling is a little clunky and the ability to copy the schedule between different days does not work. It just copy’s a random schedule and overwrites what you have just spent time setting up.

There appear to be no insights with regards to what rooms called for heat and when.

The eco mode that should save you money and make the system run more efficiently is either on or off. There are no setting etc. To play with here. It’s black magic without any settings or room insights in my opinion.

I would recommend this product due to its pricing but if you need a simple setup and require a feature rich app then it might not be for you.

With any luck, they are working on realising the next version and will continue to add features as time goes on. If this is all we can expect for the app then I would be a little disappointed.

Hello Mr Edwards, many thanks for the review and choosing the Wiser system. There are pending and future updates coming both for the app and system itself, the most immediate one being the home heating report available via the app very soon. So don't worry this is not all we have yet ! We have noted your other points around scheduling and Eco mode. Please do contact Tech support if you need anything, details are here https://wiser.draytoncontrols.co.uk/contact-us

Worrying security flaw! Almost perfect, few things missing

Update:
Unfortunately after another update once again I need to enter my credentials. It would be great if the app could stop forgetting my login details. Once more worrying is that there is a huge security flaw - I can't copy and paste my password or use a password manager forcing me to write down my password everywhere in the house. That's a big step backwards and since my custom passwords are very complex it takes ages to type them by hand EVERY time you release an update.

First of all, I love the new design. Way better than before. I like the background actually. You could possibly create few pictures and backgrounds for the users to choose from like in Apple Home, to get more users happy. It’s almost perfect now, but make sure to do pop up yes or no with any delete button that is placed where usually Save/Ok button is so I keep deleting my heating schedules all the time. Also you could redesign the schedule entry mode as it’s quite confusing, maybe try reinventing it? Better iPad support would be great especially with landscape mode as I have it built into the wall. Apple Watch app would be a game changer for Wiser to try becoming the leader in smart home heating automation for iOS ecosystem. Quick tips built into the app with screenshot might help some users with finding common functions or creating setups. Keep it up and well done for all your efforts so far! 👍

Almost Perfect

We have just installed the Drayton Wiser system in our home and after 2 weeks are very impressed with the results so far. The App could be better though. There are basically 2 modes of operation for the heating: The Normal Mode has schedules that you set up for each room, controlling the temperatures required at different times during the day, which can also be different for each day. The second mode is Away Mode, which you can set lower temperatures for each room whilst you are not at home during a holiday for example. This is great, but could be better.
With many of us now working from home it would be great to be able to add new modes, where you could could just heat the rooms you are using without having to edit the Normal Mode schedule. Or if you have children that are usually at University and stay at home from time to time, it would be nice to have a Mode that would heat their bedrooms only when they are at home, rather than having to edit the Normal Mode schedules each time.
Connectivity of the valves and room thermostat to the Wiser Hub is very good. Which is quite surprising in our home, which has very poor WiFi coverage. My only other criticism would be that there is no support for control of domestic hot water heated by an electric immersion heater instead of a gas boiler. Maybe this is something Drayton will consider in the future.
Overall thought a very good system, which I would recommend.
