$800,000 Order Marks Launch of Heating Range


JSJS Designs plc ("JSJS" or "the Company") the Home Automation specialist today announces the launch of its Heating Product Range. The range, which is compatible with the Company's existing range of products available under its LightwaveRF brand, provides functionality that is not generally available from the  internet controlled heating products currently on the market.

Unlike other products that have entered  the market recently JSJS's  product range is capable of controlling each and every radiator or electric heater individually. This new level of functionality allows the consumer to have full control of their heating wherever they are via the Company's proprietary LightwaveRF Apps and web Apps which are usable on any internet connected smartphone, PC, Mac, or tablet.

The user can set a predetermined temperature for each room where their Internet addressable radiator valve or electric heating control is fitted or override the programmed schedule via the App. Devices in each room can then report temperature for that room to the App either individually, via a room thermostat or a house thermostat. The system is designed to be easily retrofitable to most homes and can control most types of boiler with the range's boiler switch.

The consumer can then set different heating schedules for the house as a whole or each room individually. The system can also detect an open window and automatically turn off the heating in that room. The Company expects that consumers will be able to reduce their energy bill  by being able to turn off the heating when not at home and by heating only the rooms in use, such that the system should typically have a  payback of  around 3 to 4 years.

 The Company has received a stocking order of over $800,000 from its UK distributor Megaman which will be available in the UK for an April launch.

Commenting Mike Lord JSJS Chairman and CEO said:

"We have seen much publicity recently from other providers of  internet controllable heating and learning thermostats but we don't believe that they give the consumer enough control. Our system is more sophiscated and gives real control of how we live our lives. Why would we want to heat the bedroom whilst we are having dinner or watching TV? Our system can give that level of control and as well as helping people to reduce their energy bills.

"The heating system also uses the same App for control as our other LightwaveRF enabled products giving our customers now a large array of controls for their home either scheduled by them or in response to a change in plans from anywhere in the world."

The newheating system has already been installed under a Technology Strategy Board grant project in partnership with Warwick University. Currently in 20 rooms, the trial is expected to roll out to over 200 rooms during February. The Company continues to work on additional products for the Heating Range as well as the Lighting & Electrical and Security ranges and continued App development. Further products will be available during 2014 distinguishing the LightwaveRF range  further from the limited ranges of its competitors.

About JSJS Designs
