Smart thermostats have revolutionised the way we control our home heating systems, offering a convenient and energy-efficient solution for maintaining a comfortable living environment. In addition to smart thermostats, innovative radiators like the ATC iLifestyle Electric Thermal Radiator have taken heating control to the next level. These advanced devices not only provide remote control but also gather data on energy consumption, helping you make informed decisions to save energy, which saves you money. In this article, we’ll explore how smart thermostats work, and the potential cost savings they offer. We will also introduce the ATC iLifestyle Electric Thermal Radiator and the RF Gateway, showcasing their unique features and how they can contribute to greater energy efficiency in any space.
Understanding Smart Thermostats
Smart thermostats are electronic devices that allow you to control your home’s heating remotely through smartphone apps, desktops, or tablets. This means that even when you’re away from home, you can adjust your heating system to ensure it’s not running unnecessarily. But the benefits of smart thermostats extend beyond convenience; they also offer valuable insights into your energy consumption, helping you make informed decisions to save on heating costs.
How Do Smart Thermostats Work?
Smart thermostats work by offering real-time data on your energy consumption and adjusting your heating based on various factors, such as humidity and your behaviour. Some models can even learn your preferences over time, reducing the need for manual adjustments.
Let’s take a look at some of the ATC products which integrate this technology to help you get your bills under control.

The RF Gateway is part of the ATC Smart RF Family, and it enables seamless connections between various ATC heating devices like the Sunray RF, Merida, and Pacific RF, and the internet. This gateway allows for secure connections for up to 30 devices, providing individual control over each connected heater or the option to program multiple heaters together. With Android and iOS Tevolve apps, you can easily monitor individual heater power consumption and room temperature for different time frames, from the previous day to the entire year. The RF Gateway also comes complete with a 3-pin UK USB Adapter and an RJ45 connection cable.
Smart Thermostat Cost Savings
The combination of smart thermostats and innovative radiators like the ATC iLifestyle Electric Thermal Radiator can lead to significant cost savings. While the extent of savings may vary depending on your specific setup and heating habits, the ability to control and optimise your heating system remotely and gather data on energy consumption is a powerful tool for reducing your energy bills. With features such as PID Intelligent Control, customised heating schedules, and the ability to automatically conserve energy when windows are open, these advanced systems offer great potential for cost savings. In fact, one study found that users can save 10% per year on their bills. Over the lifetime of the product, this represents a significant opportunity to save hard-earned cash.
