Hi, I have a holiday let where I put a coouple of electric panel heaters in the bedrooms. Unfortunately guests are leaving the on full all the time - some times even after they have gone and it might be a coupe of days before I can get there to do the turnaround. So I need to get a couple of electric heaters that
1. I can programme 24 hours 7 days so that if guests are only staying 3 days I can program it not to come back on after the third day.
2. Lockable so guests can't just switch it to manual or adjust the thermostat or anything
3. If the heater gets switched off either at the heater or at the wall then the settings do not get lost. When it comes back on I want it to know what time/date it is and therefore where it is in the program.

I had thought I was onto something with these ones..https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nova-Live-Electric-Horizontal-Panel/dp/B00ITU1E58 - however when you switch it off and on you need to reset the time. So I guess the program would just start at midnight rather than at whatever tie it actually was.

There ust be something out there but I've not found it so if anyone has solved this problem please let me know!

in my flat I have Rointe heaters. you can program them to turn off at night and set what temperature you like ect. then when I want to turn it on/off I just switch the isolation switch next to the heaters and they come on already programed to my settings.

if you have wifi then you could get a smart heater/plug

The only one I can think of is a wirable one of eBay at £13 just type in underfloor heating thermostat I hope that helps

I don't know the answer to your question but please consider maybe whatever you find has perhaps a one hour boost. We regularly stay in holiday let's in the winter months when there is no heat during the day and if there is no sun, property can get quite cold. Sometimes when away in winter months we want to chill in property and it's not pleasant if cold.

Just charge an extra £5 on bookings.

Any tight **** 'landlord' limiting the heating would get crap reviews. It would certainly put a dampener on anywhere I stayed.

For electric heaters I think you can use the British gas Nest wifi controlled thermostat? I heard you can. They fit a relay on the power circuit. Your guest can just turn up or down on the wall to control the heating in degrees. You can turn up / down or on/ off whenever you want and you will also know what the temperature is on your smartphone. Never seen one in action but I know it's possible. Wifi plug would also work but you won't know the temperature plus locking up in a box so it can't be messed with could be dangerous I think.

Nest and Hive need broadband internet connection at the property.

Yes, I did wonder about getting one with a boost but I need to above functions foremost. The property has a woodburner that heats the whole property so that is meant to be the primary source of heating. Unfortunately guests are having a bit of a laugh and using the cottage as a sauna I think.

Tiny cottage and they are all using a tenner of electricity a night as well as the woodburner which on its own keeps the place toasty! Yeah, I have had to put prices up. However bear in mind two guests in the few weeks I have been up and running have not bothered switching them off when they left and I'm not always able to get there for a few days to check. Thats why I want to be able to program the heaters to go off at the end of a booking.

Thanks. I'm rural so broadband can be patchy. What happens when they lose wifi? Do they go back to manual?

Tight Landlord not wanting to have the electric heaters running flat out AFTER the guests have left for days on end??

why don't u just put a electric prepayment meter I'm sure u can buy your own if nothing else works that way when the money runs out the heating stops until it's put back on u could out the prices down this way aswell some people would probably use very little this way seen as they would be paying for the extra

Sparky here.
I think to satisfy your requirements you would need to have a remote timeclock at your mains board.
Also a central thermostat to control al the heaters. In this way the timeclock would have constant power and turning individual heaters off would make no diffrence to settings. Could also go further and incorporate movement detectors into the circuit.

If I booked a cottage to stay in but couldn't control the heating I would be furious.

I am not sure but I think the thing that is connected to the router will just reset itself. The same as TV boxes if there is an interruption in the electricity. There is also a separate WiFi thermostat. Your clients would be able to use this to up the temperature or timing but you could check on your app and change it to what you want

You can control the heat via the log burner.

Thank you, I've never heard of a remote time clock. I'm off to google now.

I visit a 1850s cottage on a regular basis. Luckily it has oil CH and a nest so I can warm it remotely.
Without the above it would be freezing this time of year as the woodburner takes a couple of hours to get up to speed and only really heats one end of the house and of course is no good in the mornings until you light it again and then it has a 2 hour warm up.... We often have to infill with potable electric heaters. I can see why your guests would do similar!
If you need a fully hard wired in remote (GSM or WiFi) system, then you are looking at the best part of £250, maybe more plus installation. I would contact a heating engineer. Am about to embark on something similar on some outbuildings for personal use, not lets.
