Product package for you with direct electrical heating (with wall-mounted radiators, non-storing underfloor or ceiling heating) and/or possible heat-storing or partially storing underfloor heating. Also for houses with a combination of these in different parts of the building. System also controls your possible domestic hot water tank.
System secures desired inside temperatures and minimizes the cost of electricity used for heating. The savings are made by reducing the amount of heating energy by lowering temperatures in various living situations according to your expectations, and shifting heating to less expensive hours. This is done by taking into account building insulation (heat storage capacity), weather forecast, electricity spot price and allowing a temperature variation range defined by you.
The product consists of three devices: central unit, control relay and one temperature sensor. Your home temperature is controlled based on the temperature measurement.
You can expand the package with needed amount of additional temperature sensors if your home has more than one floor or wing, or different heating methods in different areas. You can also connect possible air-to-air heat pumps to it.
Product package for you with waterborne underfloor electrical heating, with a water tank of at least 1 500 liters. System also controls your possible separate domestic hot water tank.
System secures desired inside temperature and minimizes the cost of electricity used for heating. The savings are made by shifting heating of the tank to less expensive hours. This is done by taking into account the daily heating energy needed by the building, depending on outside temperature, and selecting the cheapest hours to produce the energy.
The product consists of three devices: central unit, control relay and one temperature sensor. Your home temperature is controlled by room thermostats as before. The measured temperature is indicated to you in user interface.
You can expand the package by connecting possible air-to-air heat pumps to it.

You can select in our online shop a system which you deem suitable for your home. However, it is worth discussing before installation, so that we can be sure that the equipment you have chosen is correct and sufficient.
We also want to be sure that we both can commit to a fixed installation price you have chosen. That is because we have to check your distance from our installation partner and that we have sufficient knowledge about your house.
In some cases, changes are expected to the electrical center, if e.g. the electrical works do no meet modern standards. In such cases it is fair that we tell you about it and that you approve the associated extra cost.
All our equipment and installation come with fixed prices, so that you know beforehand what your system total cost will be.
Yes. Somebody must let the installer in the house, since she/he will make connections in your home electrical center. It would also be good that the person present is the future main user of the system. This is because the professional not only installs the system, but also gives you instructions how to use it.
Unfortunately, we have to charge also the unnecessary travel if it would happen that we agree on the date and time, but cannot carry out installation. The amount is specified in our online shop product description for the fixed price installation.
We have done smart home heating already for 10 years. We have noticed how important price is in customer’s investment decision, and for that reason continuously developed our products to be less expensive.
This year we launched our new generation product family, which is already our third. It is designed in many ways so that it is inexpensive to manufacture. For instance, we use only commercial standard components and devices to the extent possible.
The system architecture is also quite simple for the same reason. For example, we bring usually only three devices to your home. That has an impact not only on manufacturing cost, but especially also on the amount of needed installation work. We noticed early on that installation amounts to a significant portion of the total system price to customer. That is why our new equipment is designed easy to install. They equipment is simply snapped on the installation rail of your electrical center.
The standard system sells now in our online shop at 499 € plus 9,90 € per month. This includes a fixed price of 250 € for installation when you are located within 30 km from us.
See online shop product descriptions (for There Direct and There Waterborne) and check in which cities and with what other conditions you are eligible for this low price. In order to help you, we have packaged installation into fixed price products for also longer distances. Our online shop also includes other installation products for system expansions and modifications, when needed.
We have also an increasing number of retailers. They sell our products with their prices, and may offer installation in your area with even a lower price.
NOTE: You are allowed to make a 50 % tax deduction from the installation price. This lowers your standard product price with yet another 125 €.
Standard system sells now in our online shop at 499 € plus 9.90 €/month. When it saves for you about 300 €/year, the system pays itself back in less than about two years. The exact numbers depend on the initial situation and on how active a user is. A customer with direct electrical heating can him/herself influence a lot on system profitability: the more often, the more degrees and the more longer you decrease temperature in your home, the more you save heating energy and euros.
Usually yes. The question refers to direct electrical heating, where temperature is measured and regulated with the help of our sensor. With underfloor waterborne heating the regulation is done with room/radiator thermostats as before. One temperature is also then brought to your home, but only to indicate to you the state of your home.
There Direct measures temperature usually in one reference point, first because sensors in each room would significantly increase hardware price. Second, they are usually simply not needed. For U- or L-shaped houses or those with more than one floor, we of course install additional sensors. Each will increase the HW price with some tens of euros.
We made experiments early on with our customers, and noticed that people usually keep their interior doors open. Quite satisfactory temperature control can then be reached with one or few reference temperature points.
In other words, the system operates quite well with the number of sensors we install to you. But of course you can add more, if you consider it useful. Expanding the system with sensors is carried out by simple configuration, and does not require any system modifications. The number of sensors is limited only by how different parts of the building can be individually controlled from the electrical center. (See another question “What is a temperature zone?”). Our software limit of 256 sensors should be enough 😀
You have two alternatives, either from
1. One of our retailers, or
2. Directly from There.
You can find our retailers’ contact information from our website section “Buy now > Outlets”. There locations are also shown in the same page, and our prices from our Online shop on these pages.
Prices and other terms may vary depending on the outlet. Installation costs are the biggest single component of the system price, so it is usually best for you to buy the system from a seller closest to you.
Our system is complicated and consists of more than just the equipment in your home. We have invested tens of person-years in developing it. The most central part of the system is our cloud service, which e.g. receives electricity hourly prices and weather forecasts from third parties, and distributes them to all the thousands of homes. Cloud also supervises equipment in all homes, and sends mail or SMS alarms to users in possible equipment failures. In other words, each customer causes us system and communication costs. Our professionals also provide technical support to our retailers and installing partners in possible problems.
Many customers also prefer that the initial system investment price can be somewhat lowered with a monthly fee.
