Smart Made Simple
A new feature has been included in the Genius Hub software to allow for temperature limiting in specific zones through a manual override on the Genius Hub app. This will allow you to gain greater control over the temperatures within your property, save energy, and reduce energy bills. This was a commonly requested feature by landlords to allow temperature control set by tenants in specific zones of their properties, so we’ve created a feature to encompass the requirements of all of our users, for you.
We’ve also made some successful improvements to our Genius Radiator Valves that now carry out a test to make sure that they can move the pin in the TRV once a week. This is to help stop the valve pin ‘sticking’, especially during the summer when the heating is often off for prolonged periods of time allowing sediment to settle and harden. These tests were usually done at random, however, Genius Radiator Valves tests are now synchronised to a Thursday morning, which has been a commonly requested feature.
Previously, devices occasionally required re-configuration, such as Hidden Offsets and Wake Up Times features’ settings being lost when batteries were changed. This issue has been remedied in the most in the most recent patch on 27 September 2021, and now both device wake up periods and valve hidden offset values should be correctly reset and maintained. The value checks are now performed every 24 hours to ensure that the correct values are being maintained in line with their settings.
