Additional heating features

raspberry pi additional heating feature away  Away Mode

One of the PI THERM’s heating features allows you to put your heating system into Away Mode. This mode overrides all other scheduled temperature settings for the heating. Similarly, you can deny any or all hot water schedules.

If you have security system connected to Raspberry Pi, PI THERM is able to turn on/off Away Mode automatically based on the current status of this security system. Alternatively, you can turn on/off Away Mode via a web interface or by setting up a schedule.

Outdoor Temperature Adaptation overides ‘desired temperature’ by specified value if the current outdoor temperature is higher than the Upper Threshold (or below Lower Threshold).

Desired temperature: 23°C
Lower Treshold: 5°C
Increase value by: 0.5°C
Upper Treshold: 25°C
Decrease value by: 1°C

This morning the outdoor temperature was 4°C, therefore the ‘desired temperature’ was overriden to 23.5°C. Within next one hour the outdoor temperature rose to 5° and the ‘desired temperature’ was not modified (23°C). In the afternoon the outdoor temperature rose to 25.5°C, therefore the ‘desired temperature’ was overriden to 22°C.

Manual Override function allows you to manually override the ‘desired temperature’ for the remaining time of the current Timeframe.

raspberry pi hot water



Boost your central heating or hot water for a specified time regardless the desired or outdoor temperature.This can be specified for each section separately.

Once the boost is active, a count-down timer appears  for the remaining boosted time. You may extend the boost time by the same specified time that will be added on top of the remaining one.

You can configure different temperatures throughout each day. By default, each day is split into 4 different periods; you may, however, split each day separately into 3, 2 or 1 periods based on your preferences. Similarly, each period can have its own specific timeframe and temperature.
