ECO-MODE 

 Wifi-Switch team has put a lot of research to help you save energy. ECO-MODE is one of them. The device has its own algorithm to calculate the 'feel-like' temperature based on two dedicated sensors. The feel-like temperature takes into account other factors such as humidity level which influences the feel-like temperature. This enables the device to find a method to save energy automatically by adjusting a heating time, frequency and revised feel-like temperature with its true AI. ECO-MODE is fully-automated function and you don't need to set a desired temperature to turn the heater on.  This is very ideal for saving energy as well because a lot of residents tends to set a desired temperature excessively high and heater is keep using unnecessary gas/electricity. Let the ECO-MODE take care of your home environment based on optimum feel-like temperature!

TIME-MODE

 In time mode, there are two different ways. The user can turn on the wifi-switch for a short period of time (10~60 minutes) or book a specific time to schedule ON/OFF time. The Wifi-Switch will turn off the heater automatically when the schedule time has reached. And incidentally this is also great if you are looking to save energy. Do you feel cold overnight when you are sleeping but feel lazy to get up and turn on the heater? Wants to turn on the heater overnight but scared of energy bill? Say NO MORE! Use our TIME-MODE!

TEMPERATURE-MODE

 Wifi-Switch will turn the heater on until the target temperature is reached. When reached, Wifi-Switch will optimize the on/off time to save energy. Traditional thermostats will turn the heater on again after the temperature drops below their desired temperature. This increases the frequency of ons and offs which is not necessarily efficient. However, the Wifi-Switch factors in the feel-like temperature to reduce the frequency of ONs and OFFs. This optimizes both the desired temperature and energy efficiency by effectively controlling the frequency of ons and offs.

Risks and challenges

Our project has been running quite smoothly since October last year and we haven't run into any major problems. Our team has gone through many different prototypes and we are confident about the quality and unique functions that is developed over a year. We have finished testing on a final product and it is ready to ship. The possible risk we believe is on the backers side, we are worried that they might not know how to install Wifi-Switch thermostats into their house. To overcome this challenge, we have designed a case to fit any thermostat sockets worldwide with the universal standard. Furthermore, we are going to provide a detailed installation video to the backers. 1:1 Support service will be opened as well for backers who still may not know how to install the device.
