Hi there. I recently moved into a new house and the heating system is unwieldy. There are six separate elements to control:
- The central heating boiler heating various radiators
- Underfloor heating in half of the ground floor
- Underfloor heating and an electric heated towel rail in the main bathroom
- Underfloor heating and an electric heated towel rail in the en suite bathroom
I would ultimately like to bring the control of all of the above under one roof with a single controller (whether this is some physical unit or an interface on a phone, or both). If I can’t do that then I would at least like to be able to move some of the above onto a ‘smart’ footing. Ideally I would be able to have everything within one app on my/my wife’s phone, to be able to programme when everything turns on and to be able to remotely control things from outside the house.
I’ve taken a few snaps of the various units, which I will link rather than post as I’m not sure that they add much.
The boiler is a gas combi – a Worcester Greenstar 42CDI Classic:
It is controlled by a Drayton Digistat +2RF:
The underfloor heating is controlled by a Honeywell CM927 wireless programmable thermostat:
The boiler and the various wiring underneath it for the two thermostats looks like this:
The main bathroom has a control unit for the floor made by ‘Warmup’, a fuse trip-switch and a plug which controls the towel rail:
The en suite controls are limited to a plug which controls the towel rail and a ‘thermonet’ controller for the floor (with an associated fuse and switch):
Anyone have any ideas of where to start with trying to get all of this under one system (or as few systems as possible)?

Well, you don't need an idea to do that, you'd need a bunch of ideas, time, and more importantly, money.
It's perfectly possible to centralise all of these systems under one phone/tablet-controlled network, and it is not going to be difficult, just very long as you have several separate appliances to "smartify" one by one.

Anyone have any ideas?
