With the POPP thermostat, radiators will become important modules of your home automation. Intelligent connected to various sensors and individual heating schedules, you will only heat when it’s needed and only to your defined comfortable temperature. Additionally, the heating process will be stopped automatically, as soon as a window will be opened. Or you can activate the heating from outside, if you are on the way home earlier than expected.
The POPP radiator thermostat is mounted on wall heating valves and controls them by a motor. The device accepts a setpoint that is either set manually using local buttons on the device or wirelessly using Z-Wave. Beside setting a desired temperature the device will support special heating schemes, such as energy saving and frost protection. A small LCD panel on the device displays the set temperature. An internal temperature sensor measures the actual temperature and reports to the control center. The thermostat also allows further intelligent functions such as detection of open windows with shift to energy saving mode or a valve training function to ensure that valves are still operational after longer periods.
The POPP thermostat can be mounted with few movements to valves with standard M30x1.5 connector or RA2000 (Danfoss snap in). The device expects a regular radio connection to the IP gateway for status message exchange. Compared to Danfoss LC-13 thermostatic radiator valve, the Popp thermostat owns an integrated temperature sensor which reports measured temperature to the Z-Wave control center.
