Advances on Internet of Things (IoT) technologies have unleashed several opportunities to introduce "smartness" in several application domains and in particular into hour homes.

The SmartHeat project aims to leverage on modern IoT technologies in order to radically change the home heating experience for health, comfort and wellbeing of elderly people. The goal will be achieved via the development of a smart, secure and elderly friendly ICT system for heating monitoring and control. A key building block of the platform is what we call the smartTRV. The smartTRV is a smart version of the current eTRVs. It is equipped with a set of technologies to understand the environment and the user needs and to wirelessly communicate with other smartTRVs installed on other radiators or with other different devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

Internet of Things and smart home

The SmartHeat solution leverages on IoT technologies, in order to transform a passive and isolated radiator into a smart objects connected to the Internet and able to interact with the user.

Electronic components and integration

The smartTRV has an electronnic module which is the brain of the valve and it is the component which allows the radiator to interact with the Internet and with the end user and allows environmental monitoring and radiator control.

Industrial design

The SmartHeat project is strongly focused on the end users and their satisfaction. The consortium aims to produce, at the end of the project, a prototype which is very close to exploitation on the market.

User involvement, analysis and assessment

The end users are involved in the project since the beginning. This will maximize the chances of satisfaction of the end user and will lower the adoption barriers.
