I’m confusing myself googling. What do I need the hub for?
The various components (thermostat, box in the boiler, bulbs etc) link to the hub using a different radio protocol than WiFi (ZigBee I believe)
The hub connects to your router to give the whole system internet and network access to allow your phone and other devices to connect to it both at home and while away.
If I just want to control the heating from my phone when not at home do I need the hub ?
You need the hub to do anything on your phone, either at home or when away.
Separate names with a comma.
