The system is nice and easy to use and for the most part you should just need to know how to use the receiver and control units.


Receiver unit:

The receiver unit connects to the front fascia of all Vaillant EcoTEC boilers.

For new Vaillant boilers (purchased after April 2012) you just align the receiver unit pins and push it in. For all Vaillant boilers purchased prior to April 2012 you remove these receiver unit pins and instead slot the receiver unit into the pins that are present on the front of your boiler.

You may need additional controls and extra wiring if you want to use the VRT350F Room Thermostat with a System boiler or other Open Vented boilers. If in doubt please consult the installation manual below or contact the Vaillant support team on 0844 693 3133.

The receiver unit talks to the heating control unit using radio waves and ensures that your heating system is working as per your specified requirements.

Control unit:

It is nice and simply to programme your 3 temperature settings thanks to the rotary knob and 2 chunky push buttons. The Thermostat does not light up when it is not in use but has a blue back light when it is being used.

The calendar function helps provide a seamless transition between summer and winter time periods and with the option for holiday mode, you can even dictate when your central heating goes off when you are going to be away from your property for a sustained period of time.

The wall mounting base that comes included in the pack allows you to simply attach the receiver unit to the wall and operate it wireless. This wireless functionality however means you can opt to use the control unit in a stand alone fashion.
