Hi all, I was wondering if someone ever heard of a system boiler programmer with WiFi. My niece lives in social housing and has gas central heating with system boiler and copper cylinder for domestic hot water also she has a room stat in her hallway and a 2ch programmer in her kitchen and she asked me was there such a thing as a smart central heating programmer that would replace the programmer in the kitchen that could connect to the WiFi to allow her to turn her heating on when she was heading home from work but as she gets home at different times normal setting the programmer to come on at a set time every day wouldn't suit her. She can't install anything like Hive or other types of wireless thermostat as her tenancy agreement forbids her from altering her electrical circuits.
Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance

What programmer is currently installed? Hive or similar would be better, but one maybe a straight swap. Social housing don’t usually mind, as long as it’s the same as when she moved in.

Hi sorry for not getting back to you sooner. She has a Horstmann LP112
2 channel programmer

I don’t think Horstmann do a LP112, Drayton do, if it’s the latter then keep the backplate on, install Hive onto the existing backplate, and when she’s ready to upgrade, move out, then she can swap it back. (Keeping the existing programmer).

Just in case anyone else has the same problem, I swapped the programmer and it is working as expected again.

i would turn it down by 1 degree. AND also consider replacing it for one where you can have different temperatures at different set times of the day

A smart meter? If so does it give an indication of the power it’s using when the heating circuit is switched on at the consumer unit?

I've given up on this as I think as you guys say, this is just normal operation and plus it's winter now so I don't mind the extra heat haha. But...
