Gaia takes control of the whole house
Gaia provides the unique opportunity of being able to control either a hydronic or an electric underfloor heating system from a distance. Combining the wireless element with an app-able feature enables homeowners to effortlessly control their home heating system via an app on their smartphone.
The Gaialink system is based on an innovative, centrally-placed colour touch screen panel which enables all room temperatures and electrical devices within the home to be easily controlled individually or together.
The system is aimed at multiple heating zone installations and is designed to deliver maximum heating comfort while reducing energy consumption. Simple and easy to install and commission, Gaialink communicates wirelessly with individual room sensors and floor thermostats to give precise temperature control.
The Gaialink system is simple and uncluttered making it both good looking and easy to operate. The intuitive graphic display with its colour touch screen is easily personalised so that daily heating schedules can be controlled.
Gaia's 'hidden' room sensor is designed especially for use with the Gaialink unit. This unobtrusive sensor provides an accurate measurement of the indoor temperature and is mounted flush to the interior wall so can be painted over to match the wall colour, making it almost invisible.
Gaialink includes presets which can be programmed to modify schedules during the week or while the user is away. The user sets the parameter then selects "vacation" mode before leaving. A useful 'help' page is available to guide users in the event of any problems.
