Are you about to save me money, T3 ?

Per­haps, if you be­have. Look, we know smart ther­mostats aren’t the most ex­cit­ing piece of tech, but the money they can save you is ex­cit­ing. And that’s ex­actly what the Momit Home Ther­mo­stat of­fers you – the abil­ity to shave up to 30 per cent off your en­ergy bills.

Mmm, I could buy a bike with the money saved.

Al­ways think­ing about your­self, aren’t you? Tsk! Any­way, this bat­tery-pow­ered, wire­less ther­mo­stat with an LED dis­play learns your en­ergy-con­sump­tion habits to au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just the tem­per­a­ture in the room it’s po­si­tioned in. The Momit also has a geo-lo­ca­tion fea­ture and a pres­ence sen­sor. The lat­ter means it knows when you’re out and will turn off the heat­ing, and the for­mer knows to switch the heat­ing back on when you’re near­ing home.

Will it work with my heat­ing sys­tem?

Take the com­pat­i­bil­ity test on the web­site to find out! It’s com­pat­i­ble with 95 per cent of all heat­ing sys­tems, so you should be OK.

And how does the app work?

It en­ables you to set your monthly en­ergy bud­get (us­ing the My Bud­get fea­ture) and to re­ceive re­minders if you’re leav­ing the heat­ing on for longer than you can af­ford to. Data is stored in the app, where you can an­a­lyse your monthly en­ergy use.

I’m up for sav­ing cash. When can I buy this?

The Momit Home Ther­mo­stat is avail­able to buy now for €79 per unit, or €129 for the Starter Kit. There’s also a Smart Ther­mo­stat for €199, but that’s a story for an­other time...
