The gadget is suitable to use on standard radiator valves and can be controlled on the device, using a smartphone or tablet, a wireless push-button or the FRITZ!Fon phone.
You can group multiple smart thermostatic valves to sync the heating throughout your home. The FRITZ!DECT 302 also has a smart open window detection system, which automatically reduces the temperature for a set time while you are letting fresh air into the room.
Other features on the gadget include a boost function for fast heating and setting a weekly schedule. You can receive a push notification when the device cannot connect to the Wi-Fi or if the battery is running low.
AVM will add new features to the smart controllers via regular free updates. To use the FRITZ!DECT 302, you need to have a FRITZ!Box with DECT base. The device is on sale now for ~US$77 (€69).
