The thermostatic valves with Z-wave chip can help you to regulate the absorbed heat from the heating system. Due to the fact that the actual temperature is not reported, these automatic valves are not suitbable to instruct the heater to start producing heat.
This Z-wave thermostat has the same layout as the Danfoss LC13 with some improvements. The main improvement is the SDK 4.5; it has Explorer Frame Support and increased network stability.
Popp living connect is a Z-Wave controlled electronic radiator thermostat. It is mounted on wall heating valves and controls them by a motor. The device accepts a setpoint that is either set manually using buttons on the device or wirelessly using Z-Wave. Afterwards, the device will regulate the warm water supply to the wall radiator and compare the detected temperature to ensure, that the temperature in the room is kept at the desired level. A small LCD panel on the device displays the setpoint temperature on request.
The device has an internal scheduler, that allows to define up to 9 setpoint for up to 7 week days. Once programmed, these setpoints will be activated without any further manual or wireless interaction. Beside setting a desired temperature the device will support special heating schemes, such as energy saving and frost protection and intelligent functions such as detection of open windows or a valve training function to ensure that valves are still operational after longer periods.
The living connect can be mounted to valves with standard M30x1.5 connector.
