What can I do with the iT500?
The iT500 will change the way you interact with your home’s heating, giving you control over both central heating and hot water. Designed to suit your lifestyle and needs, you can create and set custom schedules, so you will have a warm house and hot water when you need it. Fitted with numerous features, the smart thermostat will adjust to your set requirements. Holiday mode and energy save override work independently to optimise your home’s temperature, whilst maximising energy efficiency.

The iT500 does not have any annual fee/subscription, it is a solution to home heating that adjusts to both your heating costs and comforts.

How can I control the iT500?
Controlling your smart heating could not be easier. It gives you full access to your home’s central heating, when you need it, wherever you are. The iT500 comes complete with a wireless thermostat, allowing you to set or override your home’s smart heating at the touch of a button, or over the web, using your browser.

An intuitive app, available for free, allows you to access and control your system from multiple devices simultaneously. Compatible with any iOS 4.3 device or higher including iPhones, iPods and iPads, Android devices running 2.2 and higher, and any Windows smart phone. Control your smart heating over Wi-Fi as well as 3G/4G. You never have to worry about accidently leaving the heating on, saving on your heating bill and reducing your carbon footprint.

Will the iT500 work with my existing central heating system?
The iT500 is compatible with different zonal systems and setups. It can be used for heating only, hot water and heating (requires a hot water tank) or two different heating zones (requires iT300)

The RF boiler receiver is a direct replacement for the basic time (mechanical) clock or blanking plate usually supplied with some boilers. It is suitable for both combination and system boilers. The receiver handles communications and control between your boiler and smart thermostat using a radio frequency (RF) signal. This allows all the benefits of the smart thermostat, with your boiler. Offering a range of up to 30metres, it can be installed in the majority of households.

How do I install the device?
Installation of the smart thermostat is easy, due to the pre-assembled and pre-wired control unit, requiring just batteries and syncing the app and boiler receiver. The boiler receiver accessory must be fitted by a competent person, and installation must comply with the guidance provided in the current IEE Wiring Regulations and current Building Regulations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! Only had it for a few days - but so far so good! Relatively easy to self install if you have basic electrical DIY skills and take advice if you are not sure on the connections for your Boiler. Replaced my old boiler controller with this one - and the thermostat can sit in your room on a table or screw onto a wall. Works really well - easy to control heat / water from your mobile - or internet - and can set heating to come on early if finishing work early - or delay if late home etc. Looking forward to seeing how we get on over the winter. Easy to set up - well built - looks good. Ordered online through Maplin - for store pick up half an hour later - Easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine, easy to install even on very old c-plan setup Thermostat has been installed on old system boiler in a old detached stone built property, to save on the epic bills and to better to control the temperature for our baby. The switching unit, thermostat and gateway communicate fine even through the thick walls and did not have to be synced after installation. The older android app is a bit slow (login every time) and is basic, but does what is needed. Salus are developing a new app, which on their website they don't recommend using yet, but should hopefully improve things. I never got the email confirmation so had to phone tech support, but was sorted quickly. Good for the price when compared to products from other suppliers

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for remote control of heating I have a Salus it500 . Everytime my broadband provider has a tiny downtime with the broadband , when the braodband comes back online everything that is connected to my router via lead or wifi reboots and comes online again ok except my it500. To get my it500 back online for remote access , I have to physically disconnect and reconnect the power. Obviously you cant do this if you are not at home , which means you wont be able to turn your heating on or off . Pointless !!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well Purchased this device 12 months ago, so I thought I would write long term review. Dont normally bother writing these things but this kit is very good, who ever designed both the radio link ( Display unit to Boiler receiver) and the WIFI connection 10 out 10 it's like a rock and thats what you need with remote connected equipment to the internet. Has saved me pounds in gas bills the ability to be away and both read the temperature of your house and be able to act upon it by setting the boiler temperatures is great. The internet server its uses works all the time and was a very easy out of the box installation. The display very clear back lit, good design , looks the part and can be placed anywhere in the house that you wish to measure the temperature of. The radio transmitter is plug-in and forget (PSU lead plus an ethernet cable into your router) after that you will never need to even see it again. The boiler control is also simple to install and has two switches on the front panel for running the system in auto mode, manual or turning the system off. The app on my I-phone is clear, easy to use and to the point, giving manual control over the system, changing time/temp and even a holiday mode to put the system to sleep. Ok you dont have a phone or your in Spain on holiday and you hear there is a snow storm back in the UK in the middle of June! Easy just go into any internet cafe login to your account and there you are looking at the temperature of your house with full control over the boiler and all modes of operation. So a year on, if you need this type of control just go and buy this unit, its by far the best on the market by a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent thermostat. We have had our iT500 installed for about 9 months now and it's worked flawlessly so far. It's easy to install and only basic electrical skills are required, just follow the wiring diagrams for your boiler. Our install was a little more complicated as we have condensate pump fitted to our boiler which needed to wired into the installation and cut out the boiler should the condensate pump fail but if wasn't difficult to figure out. Performance wise it's saved us about £100 on our gas bill so it's almost paid for itself. We can control our heating wherever we are, we can check the temprature at home and adjust accordingly. We have set minimum tempratures at certain times Mon-Fri, and have differing minimum tempratures at different times on Sat-Sun when at home more often. The phone app works great with both my wife's iPhone and my Galaxy S6. But you can also login to change things via the Internet using the Salus website. Great piece of kit at a great price.
