*OVO offered Smart thermostats to energy customers from 11 February 2015 to 21 March 2015. This offer is no longer available. If you’re having problems with your Smart thermostat, please call Salus Support on 01226 323961.
Say, for example, you went on holiday and forgot to change the settings on your timer – you could adjust them while you’re away using your phone, tablet or computer.

75% of your home’s energy bill is spent on heating and hot water, so your thermostat plays a big part in controlling how much you use.
Although we don’t know exactly how much you’ll save, The Energy Saving Trust says that using a thermostat properly can save you between £70 and £150 a year.

Just so you know, we use standard SSL encryption and https for communications with the website and apps, which means the system is secure. You also don’t need to worry about it using that much of your broadband data as it only uses about 512kb a month. That said, it’ll use a bit more during setup and when you’re updating the software (up to 5MB).
