New DEVIregTM Touch is the first floor heating thermostat with simple touch-screen operation from DEVI, a global leader in high performance electric floor heating systems for commercial and domestic applications. With its quick and easy ‘click-fit’ design, DEVIregTM Touch is almost impossible to install incorrectly and is compatible with a wide range of electric floor heating frames and sensors, in addition to the DEVI system, for optimum flexibility in new and retrofit situations. Smart and stylish, DEVIregTM Touch can reduce energy waste by up to 12%, all at the touch of a 2-inch screen.
DEVIregTM Touch offers heating professionals and their customers a hassle-free heating control that’s as intuitive and easy to use as the latest smartphones. For added peace of mind for installers and end-users alike, DEVI’s new touch-screen thermostat comes with a market-leading ‘no quibble’ five year warranty and is backed by a fast, web-based replacement service in the unlikely event that a unit fails to meet DEVI’s high standards of reliability.
The new DEVIregTM Touch heating control has a time-saving design for convenient two stage installation. Once wiring is complete, the front panel is simply clicked into place and the job’s done. DEVIregTM Touch provides installers with a flexible solution for almost any electric floor heating job; it can even be combined with an existing system, providing a smart yet simple upgrade with advanced energy saving features. These include an open window function, which prevents heat being wasted by turning off the heating if the thermostat detects a significant drop in room temperature, and third generation timer technology to optimise energy used at start-up and fade-out.
Everything from initial set-up to adjusting timer settings and after-sales maintenance is made easier with DEVIregTM Touch. A built-in set-up wizard guides the installer through each stage, including ensuring the correct floor temperature for the floor type. A unique code is generated automatically after set-up which can be used for even faster commissioning of similar systems or remote service. This code facility also enables DEVIregTM Touch to be restored remotely to its original settings if a customer reports an error, saving a costly site visit. The code can be generated on the DEVI smart app on a smartphone or computer.
In addition to ease of installation, DEVIregTM Touch offers highly effective heating control for optimum comfort and reduced energy costs. The controller features a fully flexible timer program with 15 minute time setting accuracy, two comfort periods, and two set-back settings. Using the touch-screen, users can copy timer settings from one day to another, or set different temperature levels for each day to suit the way they live.
DEVIregTM Touch reflects DEVI’s full-circle approach to product development, where everything in and around a new product is optimised to deliver added value benefits and total reliability. Greg Tracy, UK Product Manager, comments: “DEVIregTM Touch is the result of extensive consultation with heating professionals and consumer testing. From this valuable feedback we’ve created what we believe is the most stylish – and above all – the most ‘usable’ electric floor heating controller currently available. Packed with the features and benefits that end-users have asked for, DEVIregTM Touch offers outstanding sales potential for installers as the ‘must have’ thermostat for electric floor heating systems.”
