The owner of the property on Elm Avenue contacted Electrobyte to see if they could integrate control of his heating and hot water system into a single system controllable by his existing Control4 system.

The property had a traditional heating and hot water system with condensing boiler, hot water cylinder and radiators on three floors. In addition the condensing boiler fed an underfloor heating system in the utility room and kitchen. There was also an external coach house that had its own combination boiler supplying the hot water taps and radiators in that building.


Leo Walton from Electrobyte explained .. The only system that we knew of that could provide the required level of integration whilst also looking good was the Heatmiser Neo system. This creates its own mesh network and then uses a single hub to interface between the thermostat/programmers and the local network.

Despite some initial issues with the range of the mesh network there were simple workarounds that got the system installed and working within a day. Heating control is now possible locally and from the outside world via the Heatmiser Neo app as well as the Control4 software

The foundations of Electrobyte were started in 2005 when Leo Walton started a company called Cable Guys with a friend from University, Lee Spicknell. Starting out with data network installation and aerial and satellite installation the company soon grew to include electrical contracting, audio visual installation, and smart home systems.
