Heating made more sustainable, efficient and comfortable

We optimise buildings' heating and cooling systems without compromising the comfort of the occupants. Quite the opposite - our end users report increased productivity and wellbeing as well as better control of the heating/cooling generating up to 30% energy savings. We empower responsible consumption and help all stakeholders achieve their sustainability goals quicker - retrofit any radiator or AC with hand-held infrared remote control, monitor use, temperature and humidity data from the environment, set schedules, adjust temperature when an office or house is not in use, receive reports... all while enjoying better comfort and reduced CO2 emissions.

Intelligent heating control suitable for every type of building using radiators

Increase comfort

The radiator thermostat Vicki, suitable for all types of buildings that use radiators to heat, will ensure better comfort ,ease of control and monitoring of temperature and humidity on the premise. The heating schedule can be linked to occupancy and night savings can controlled centrally from our software tools.

Save energy

Installing Vicki in the whole building, one can benefit from up to 30% energy savings as well as up to 20% operational savings. Vicki ensures more even heat distribution and less operational burden for the Facility manager.

Reduce CO2 emissions

District heating is one of the major contributors to greenhouse gasses - in some countries it has bigger carbon footprint than automobile traffic. Connected heating control on a building level can open many possibilities for heating plants to optimise and plan their operation, thus savings tons of CO2.

Benefits of a connected heating system

Schedules

Creating schedules for each room individually or in bulk is one of the easiest ways to save energy.

IoT connectivity

Install 1x LoRaWAN gateway per building and receive data from 1000+ devices.

Extra-long battery life

Devices have up to 10 years of battery life with 2xAA batteries thanks to LoRaWAN connectivity.

Manual control

Allow occupants to change the temperature in the room directly from the radiator thermostat Vicki.

Analytics

View in-depth reports on the performance of each device and spot temperature & humidity anomalies. Understand your building's thermodynamics and learn how to improve them.

Software tools

Manage your heating system from a central web application and allow tenants to control the devices in their own spaces from a mobile App.

Success stories

University Campus

Classrooms of a university campus in small European city has been equipped with radiator thermostats Vicki. Administration has increased awareness of the rooms usage and thermodynamics of the buildings thanks to live-data and reports generated from MClimate Enterprise. All devices have been configured to work according to the rooms usage schedule. Savings are not yet calculated, but are estimated to be between 17% and 29%.

Office

An entire office building in a major European city has been equipped with radiator thermostats as well as separate temperature and humidity sensors in some rooms where there are many radiators. The employees have reported that temperature has been managed better since the installation and the project owner reports 28% savings over the last 2 winters.

Police Station

The police regional headquarters in a medium European city installed 1000+ radiator thermostats Vicki as part of a tender for energy optimisation facilitated by a global energy-efficiency provider. Their main goal is to save energy from heating by adjusting the schedule on a room-by-room basis from a centralized platform and gain more insight into their building thermodynamics.

Residential Block

50+ residential buildings in a capital in an European capital have been equipped with radiator thermostats Vicki and timers have been put into place to regulate the temperature on work- and weekdays. Residents have reported increased comfort and engagement with their energy consumption. Savings range from 15% to 31%.
