Every Viessmann Vitodens 050-W and Vitodens 100-W combi boiler comes with a free remote controller until 31 March 2016.
The wall-mounted Vitotrol UTDB RF2 RF remote controller provides access to all boiler control functions, plus a quick overview of the heating system. It has a sleek, white gloss casing and easy-to-read grey-on-black digital display screen.
The Vitotrol remote control is easy to fix to the wall, with no wiring required. It allows users to customise heating and domestic hot water programming precisely, and control keys can be locked to prevent tampering.
Heating temperatures and time phases can be set for individual days or groups of days. The control comes pre-loaded with two suggested timing programmes, and a third for which gas engineers can set specific timing requirements.
In Comfort mode, the user chooses the desired room temperature; the Eco mode reduces this by 2°C and switches off the domestic hot water (ideal for short absences); and Reduced mode sets any tailored temperature as low as 10°C, also switching off the hot water.
To manage domestic hot water, the Vitotrol remote control also splits the day into time phases for individual days or groups of days. The change from summer to winter-time is made automatically.
