Panasonic partners with Drayton for smart control integration

Panasonic has partnered with Drayton by Schneider Electric to offer its Wiser room-by-room heating control system.

Integrating with Panasonic Aquarea Air Source Heat Pumps and the Aquarea Smart Cloud and Service Cloud apps, the Wiser system provides an additional element of energy control and simple home automation, a statement said.

Remi Volpe, managing director at Drayton, said: “In order for a Net Zero home to be achieved, different technologies are going to be required to work together to optimise their performance. This is particularly important when it comes to the heating system and this new partnership with Panasonic is one that will enable us to develop Wiser into a full home-automation solution.

“Phase 1 sees the integration of Wiser with Panasonic’s low carbon Aquarea heat pump, and future phases will see the capabilities of the Wiser Home app expanded to include other Panasonic devices, such as lighting and electrical appliances.”
