Hi Chris

I'm still doing my researches and haven't had definitive proof yet.  But
with an Android phone my daughter can see the settings on her boiler from
her phone.  She can download a text to speech app to access the information
on her phone.  Unfortunately, her boiler isn't set up for Wi-Fi so she can't
change the settings via her phone.

I've asked my son to check out his boiler in his flat to see if he can
access it with his IPhone and I'm waiting to hear back from him.

My understanding from the estimate I've had from British Gas is that you can
get a remote thermostat control which is Wi-Fi and can be controlled from a
smart phone ... now I want to see it working before I commit.  I've got
another boiler installer coming next week and I'll quiz him about it and let
you know the outcome.

Cheers

Alan

Alan,

I am in a similar situation to you. I am having a lot of work done on my
house which includes a new boiler. Thanks to Peter Bosher I found a company
called Heat Miser which sell a controller that can be controlled by an IOS
App. This looked promising and when I contacted them one of their technical
support people tested the App with Voiceover. However, although you can read
all the settings you cannot change them.

This was disappointing so, if you find anything else please do let us know.

Chris

Hi Listers

I'm looking to replace my combi boiler in the new year and have discovered
that you can now have a remote thermostat which can be controlled by a
mobile phone (for mobile phone read Smart phone!).  Is anyone on the list
using such a device and, if so, with what success and which phone?

Thanks

Alan
