This bit was installed by Aberdeen Heating and Controls.

Thermostat

The thermostat needed to have its batteries inserted, then screwed to a wall. Only 2 rawlplugs and 2 screws.

Wireless Transmitter

This is the bit which communicates with the thermostat to the web.

Wireless Transmitter Installation

The installation of this part was fairly simple. Connect it to an ethernet port on a router, plug in the power supply and turn it on. Bingo!

Timer Program Setup

Now the tricky bit. Go to the Salus Website and register your device. Once this is done, you need to set up the Timer Program.

I initially did this, but didn't realize that I had to put something in for all 24 hours of the day, so initially the heating was coming on and staying on, when it should have been off.

This lets you set the temperature you want your house to be at and at certain times. Plus you can set the times your hot water is heated.

You can do this from any PC with web access, as long as you now the URL or how to find it, but the wireless transmitter needs to be switched on, as does your router.

Impressions

Very good system, although a bit of a pain when you need to change the program, or temperature, as you need to go onto a website and login, then make the adjustments. But that is only as I can't get the app to work on my phone - it is a Blackberry and the app only works with iPhones or Android.

Plus updating the software in the thermostat can be slightly difficult. It can take several attempts before the download is completed.

Other than that, it is just a case of putting fresh batteries in the thermostat.
