    2 zones max i believe, either 2 x heating or heating and hw.

    To get the second zone you need a ti300 thingy

    Sorry Guys for the delay i finally finished my review.

    Salus It500

    Just would like to take this time to thank Ray at Williams & Co and the rep at Salus for given me the opportunity to test their product as a freebie.

    I have been put off Salus items in over the years but the it500 has regained my faith.
    I decided to fit it into my sisterís house which has a Worcester 37 cdi as they only had digi stat from Worcester. (Which I donít like I even changed my own one)

    Once a received the it500 from williams next day may I add (really fast turnaround with you guys) I opened the box to have a look at the product, Liked the look of the controller (stat) after emptying the box found there was no installation instructions or user instructions which I was very disappointed. I have never fitted one these before so was looking for some guidance. Even tho itís the same as most on the market I was not sure about the Wi-Fi ECT, after I posted on Plumbers forum I found out that the it500 does come with the instructions but mine must have been missed.

    Fitting into a worcester 37 cdi which was replacing the worcester dt20 range (Which was not best) Started of fitting the receiver unit to the boiler, normally I would take supply from the spur to the unit then to the boiler but block connecters was really tight to fit the two cable in and my fat finger could not push the two cables in the slot at the same time, So I ran a fresh supply from the spur to the receiver then to the boiler, Just means there is two cables going to the boiler, easy to wire Live neutral Earth call and com, the two cables to connect to the boiler, even with any other boiler I donít think this would be a hassle to fit.

    Second part is fit the Wi-Fi receiver which was easy plug and play into a router or a hub my sister has the virgin hub 2 which automatically installed no need to go into any settings on the virgin hub so this was a big plus. Only bad thing I would say was the cable was short but I am just being fussy.

    After working out the awful pictures from the online instructions I was ready for the next step MAKE SURE YOU WRITE THE SERIAL CODE DOWN I must of missed that page lol .Itís time to set up the room stat, stick the batteryís in and it runs tho is software configuration ready to be set up this part was great I never knew you can have it two zones and also have timed hot water for some reason I just thought it was for combi boilers, Setting up the controller was the easy very basic but easy for both installer and owner.
    The receiver and room stat automatically paired without me needing to pair them. Registering the Salus product was a bit of a pain there were no clear instructions here. We tried to do this on my sister phone as the internet was down. But it never worked so we has to wait until the internet came back on to register the product. Then all you need to do is go to the app store and download the app login and register. This is where you will need the serial number.

    Once we got everything sorted we were able to access the app which is very basic but maybe Salus will upgrade the apps with extra features. The big one I found was there was no on or off button which means you need to run programs all day after spending abit of time what I managed to do was set the timing form 5am-5.01am ect which means the boiler does not fire on and my sister can just adjust the temperature when she needs to as they both work shifts We installed the app on three phones mine included just to test the product which was not hassle and found no problems so there is nothing stopping your family having the app to control the heating.

    Customers review
    Do you like the product: - Yes itís very easy to use, I like the fact I can be on the bust home and jump on the app turn the heating and by the time I get home the house is nice and warm.

    Do you like the look of the product: - Yes I like the room stat as its black which blends in with my home furnishing.

    Would you buy the product :- I have seen similar products on TV which I thought was been a month fee which put me off.

    Would you recommend this product: - Yes I would I have already showed my friends that I can control my heating tho wifi and an app.

    The only thing is when I told my friends the cost of the unit they were kind of put off.

    My thoughts on the Salus IT500

    I liked the product for many years I have been put off all the Salus stuff this has changed how a feel about their products.
    I would say Salus have taken a big leap into the future and I am sure other companies will follow shortly. Yes the app is very basic but its work able.
    Easy to install easy to set up from an installers view these could be a nice wee money earner. You will spend more time showing the customers how to register and how to work the app than installing the product so remember that when you are pricing to fit them. Would I recommend them yes, I will start putting them in my quotes and see if anyone wants them.

    Bad Points :- these will not work with the plug in worcester front panel programmer these must be removed as the Salus gets confused, the app is very basic and hope this will change at some point eg ON/ OFF or always on. Manuelís why were these not in the box? That was a kick in the teeth to start.

    Hope this review helps customers buy the product

    Thanks Steven

    Apologies to Ray for the delay in getting this review sorted. I literally have not had a spare moment, and as the van is in for a service and MOT today I thought I would put my spare time to good use.

    My first impression of the unit was it was definitely a step in the right direction for Salus. The quality of the Thermostat is good and it looks smart, modern and quite expensive which is good. The receiver unit still feels a bit cheap much like other Salus controls. The terminals are quite small, especially when you need to link two together for installation to a combi which is what mine is fitted to. It makes it quite fiddly, but not really the end of the world.

    Installation was pretty straight forward, I cant say I was overly impressed with the level of detail in the instructions but in all honesty you could probably work it out without them any way. It probably took about an hour to install and get up and running at a leisurely pace. When registering the unit online with the serial number, be aware it is case sensitive as I was wondering what was going on for a couple of attempts when it kept saying it didn't recognise it.

    Actually using the thermostat and the app is very straight forward. It is quite basic and much like any other programmable stat, in my eyes that is a good thing. I don't like fitting overly complicated thermostats for my customers as it generally results in phone calls, emails and some times visits to explain how to use it again. I can confidently say I can explain exactly how to use this in about 15 minutes to anyone. The only negative is that the load times on the app can be quite long and it has timed out a few times on me. Whether that is due to my signal strength or not I don't know, but it could do with being faster to make it more fluid and less frustrating when trying to alter time and temperature etc.

    All in all, I am more impressed with it than I thought I would be and wont hesitate to fit it for customers.

    Apologies Ray for the late review, but as others been very busy, so when van got done the other week, utilised the 2 days without work to fit the It500 at home.

    On first Impressions the unit definitely looks a lot better than previous Salus stuff, which tbh I didnt think was that bad, just a bit out dated when looking at other manufacturers.

    On opening the box, looking for fitting instructions, to find there was none in the box. No problems, as easily downloadable from the Salus site.

    Found the registering, fitting, and setting up with the app very straightforward, and would say it took less than 40 minutes from start to finish.

    The app works well, as does the thermostat.

    I would have no hesitation in fitting one for a customer.
