Remaining in the range ofpriceof theNest thermostat, we run into thewifi thermostatSalus iT500. Thecostis 307 euros and like the Nest device it is a programmable intelligent thermostat via the internet from the PC or from special applications for Android and iPhone. We have not personally tested this thermostat but according to opinions and at reviews read online, the thermostat is easy to install on the boiler but it is rather cumbersome to use as the software interface that allows management via wifi is not very intuitive.
The advantage is that, unlike the Nest thermostat, this device does not need a direct connection to the home network because, like the classic thermostats and timer thermostats, it works with 2 AA batteries.
