Home automation for heat pumps.

In an increasingly connected world, automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) have become an integral part of our lives. One of the most notable examples of home automation for heat pumps is the “TST” Smart Thermostat from Efitherma. What started as a heat pump controller with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities through its own app (EFI SmartApp), has evolved to become a next-generation device with touch screen, heat pump control and technology. inverter In this blog article, we will explore the history of how the TST was made and the technologies that power it as well as its best features.

1. The beginning of the smart thermostat "TST".

The first iteration of the “TST” came as a heat pump controller equipped with a digit display and the ability to connect via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth using our dedicated app, EFI SmartApp. This starting point marked the beginning of an exciting journey towards creating a cutting-edge smart thermostat with added heating control capabilities.

2. Evolutions over time.

The TST has undergone a series of significant evolutions over time. These evolutions were made with the aim of providing users with a more complete and advanced temperature control experience. Some of the notable milestones in the evolution of TST include:

3. Technology used:

3.1. SmartGate Cloud: The reliable engine that powers your "TST" smart thermostat and your business.

Our “SmartGate Cloud” platform is the reliable engine that supports the performance of the TST Smart Thermostat, providing uninterrupted access. For partner companies that offer our products to their customers, “SmartGate Cloud” becomes an essential solution.

This solution ensures that the TST Smart Thermostat operates smoothly and reliably, which is essential for partner companies who want to provide their customers with efficient control over the heating and heat pump in their homes. Our platform ensures that your customers get a seamless experience, strengthening your relationship with them and building trust in your company. In addition, thanks to real-time data and exclusive access to its installers, you will be able to provide the best support to your customers.

3.2. Efficient communication in real time.

Communication is essential in an IoT device like the “TST”. MQTT is used to facilitate communication between the TST and other devices, such as smartphones and servers. MQTT is especially suitable for IoT due to its efficiency and ability to handle large volumes of data in real time. This allows the TST to provide a responsive user experience and instant updates on the status of the equipment.

3.3. APPS for iOS and Android.

The TST Smart Thermostat adapts to the needs of modern users by offering dedicated applications for both iOS and Android devices. These apps allow users to control their heating system and heat pump from their mobile devices with ease. In addition to basic temperature control functions, these apps can also offer important notifications and alerts, giving users full control over their HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system from anywhere.

3.4. EFI SmartApp and it's advanced features

The EFI SmartApp is an essential part of the TST Smart Thermostat ecosystem. In addition to basic temperature control functions, it offers a number of advanced features that improve the user experience and increase the efficiency of the heating and heat pump system:
