ISH International Expo in Frankfurt

ISH Frankfurt is the world’s leading and biggest trade fair for the building and energy, plumbing and heating & cooling industries. The show covered more than 260,000 square meters, and was attended by over 200,000 visitors. Over 2,450 exhibitors from 61 countries were on show, including international market leaders.

HydroHeat Supplies were there to get a first hand look at everything on offer and to sample the showcase of innovation. We spent time meeting with some of our key suppliers in BAXI, Emmeti, Giacomini and IMAS, who were all present with displays showing off their latest and greatest products.

It was an exhausting couple of days with a lot to take in and see, but well worth the trip. We’ve come back with some great ideas, so keep an eye out for innovative new products and updates across the range…

Rialto wifi thermostat with remote Smart Phone App now available

We receive many customer enquiries about WiFi thermostats. The new Rialto thermostat is WiFi capable and ideal for replacing existing thermostats or for use in new projects. It is now available in stock.

Just like a standard thermostat, the Rialto is hardwired to the boiler, however the WiFi capability enables the use of a smartphone app to remotely communicate with the thermostat. This means the homeowner can control temperature settings and on/off settings via a smartphone or tablet app.

The Rialto also has a proximity radius feature through the app that allows heating to switch on when the homeowner is within a pre-set distance from the thermostat. This type of functionality is perfect for applications such as holiday homes to enable activation of heating prior to arrival. Furthermore, it is capable of controlling up to 12 individual additional zoned thermostats, offering even further control of the home or work environment. The Rialto WiFi thermostat is simple to install and operate. Speak to your HydroHeat sales representative for further information.
