Question wifi app and motor to adjust heating control


Standard Member

There are many Wifi central heating controls on the market, but all the ones I've found are more complex than I need.

All I need is to be able to turn the thermostat up from frost to 18 via an Android app and nothing more.

1) Does anyone know of a set up that is this simple?

2) Could I fit a simple rubber wheel on a motor against the room thermostat connected to wifi? It would only need to go from A to B set points on demand.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Rubber wheel and motor sounds a bit unreliable. You could consider two stats, one at frost setting and one at 18, and a relay to change over between the two. Still seems a bit Heath Robinson though.
