Today, most electric heat is controlled from a knob on the baseboard, or a built-in control on the heater, that is typically located near the floor- not the ideal control or sensing location for maintaining a comfortable home environment.
Even though it is possible to add a wall control to electric heat systems, it often means having to open up and re-patch walls for wiring, which can add extra mess, time, and cost. Thanks to Honeywell’s RedLINK Wireless Technology and EConnect, those days are gone.
Since EConnect is completely wireless, your electrician can install your thermostat wherever you want it in the room - improving comfort without requiring any renovation. A single EConnect thermostat can control all heaters in the room, for maximum convenience, energy efficiency, and comfort.
Wireless Systems put an end to those hidden obstacles. The Honeywell EConnect wireless thermostat for electrical heating installs in half the time of a wired thermostat. It is compatible for direct installation in most baseboards or can be installed in a remote junction box. Each Equipment Interface Module can support a maximum load of 3000W at 240V and can be used to control baseboards, convectors and fan forced heaters.
This kit is used as an addition to the Honeywell YTL9160AR1000 EConnect Wireless Line Voltage Thermostat, sold seperately. One thermostat can controls multiple heaters, up to 8 EIM can be used per thermostat.
The Gateway is the heart of the system. It creates an internet link for remote control of the thermostats. A basic kit consists of a Gateway, a thermostat and electronic interface module (EIM). This kit will control up to 3000 Watts of heating at 240 volts (1500 watts at 120 volts). If you need to control additional heaters from the same thermostat, you can purchase additional EIM kits. You can control a maximum of 8 EIM units (24,000 watts) with a single thermostat. You can purchase additional thermostats with EIM if you need to control different zones. Only one Gateway is required for the entire system.
Professional Installation is strongly recommended
