Heatmiser Neo SmartPhone Heating Control Wins Theo Paphitis' #SBS Competition (30/10/2013)
#SBS (Small Business Sunday) was created by Theo Paphitis in October 2010. Theo is best known for appearing on Dragons Den on BBC2. He is a chairman of Ryman Stationery plus Boux Avenue lingerie and Robert Dyas, as well as joint owner of Red Letter Days.
Each week Theo rewards small business that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their business in one tweet including the all-important hashtag #SBS.
Theo then reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted, to his 395,000 followers.
"We really are chuffed that Theo took the time to read our tweet and our new Neo website," says Martyn Kay, Director at Heatmiser UK. "We have put so much time and effort into the development of Neo - our new SmartPhone heating control system - and Theo's recognition of our company is amazing!"
The all important tweet:
Neo by Heatmiser
Neo by Heatmiser is set for launch in January 2014 and has been designed with the retrofit and the new build market in mind, with the sole aim of allowing more people to control their heating from their SmartPhone. Smart control of your heating is the best way to reduce energy usage.
Heatmiser, a British based family company, has been involved in the manufacture of heating controls and thermostats for the past 30 years, with the company's products being used by some of the country's leading heating equipment manufacturers. When asked about the importance of product development, Martyn Kay says "Product development is key at Heatmiser, we listen to feedback from customers and re-act with great products. We are proud to have been one of the first companies in the UK to launch a Wi-Fi Enabled Thermostat back in 2011, and the demand for SmartPhone control of the heating system has continued to grow ever since."
The neoApp will be available on the iOS and Android platform and promises a great set of user features. For example, via the Mobile App, you will be able to hold a certain temperature for a number of hours in a select number of rooms in your home, ideal for parties. You can also switch the whole home heating in to Away mode, a mode that will protect your home against frost damage. And for those with ever changing schedules, the profile feature will let you store in advance a set of comfort level settings that you can then apply to the system as and when your schedule changes.
