    I recently fitted a Worcester Greenstar Heatslave II 18/26 oil fired combi for a customer. The customer has asked if I can supply & install a internet connected 'smart' timeclock/roomstat as they spend a lot of time away with work.

    I have spoken to Worcester who have told me that their 'Wave' control is not compatible with oil boilers??!! Can anyone here recommend a smart control system that is suitable? Worcester said other manufacturer's controls should be compatible but wouldn't recommend any particular type.

    The simpler the better, boiler is heating a 2 bedroom cottage, there are no zoned area's, customer simply wants to be able to switch heating on/off remotely.
