  • dowels and screws (fisher)
  • cable for connection
  • electrical conduit
  • one meter
  • a pencil
  • a drill
  • a screwdriver

Thechronothermostatmanages to regulate the temperature by communicating with theboiler. Forconnect the chronothermostattoboilerthe scheme provides areceiver(which runs on electricity, connected to the boiler) and thechronothermostatwhich acts as a detector and forwards information to theboilerthrough the receiver. The chronothermostat works with battery, it must be installed away from windows and at a height of about 150 cm from the ground.

The first thing to do is to install the rear shell to the wall, fixing it with screws. Wall fixing is very simple. The fixing operation is similar for the rear body of the receiver (to be connected to the boiler) and of the detector (to be installed in a room of the house).

If theboilerit does not have a predisposition and only provides for domestic heating, connections to thechronothermostatthey must be made with a fitting at the level of the burner or pump. On the contrary, if theboilerprovides both the production of hot water and domestic heating, the connection must be made at the level of the pump or mixer.

Once connected thechronothermostatthis will have to be put into operation:
- put the batteries in the chronothermostat (emitter / detector) and fix it to the wall in the previously prepared base
- activate the receiver
- perform the recognition procedure between the emitter (the one in the room) and the receiver (the one connected to theboiler).
