The new Herschel iQ R1 Receiver (Gen 3 model) is specifically designed to control Herschel Infrared heaters.The R1 will operate with the T1 Thermostat or directly with the iQ Hub. The R1 Receiver must be wired to the mains electricity supply and also to the Herschel heater(s). An R1 can control up to 2.3kW of Infrared heaters (10 amps) on a 230 volt circuit or 1.2kW (10 amps) on 120 volts.
Option 1 – with the T1 Thermostat
When using with the T1 Thermostat, the R1 pairs wirelessly to the thermostat which then sends commands to the R1 to either turn the heater(s) on or off. Additional R1s can be added to the same T1 Thermostat. Optional remote control of the T1 Thermostat, over the internet, is available (just add the iQ Hub and download the Herschel iQ App)*
Option 2 – with the iQ Hub
The R1 has an in-built internal temperature sensor and is capable of being controlled directly from the Herschel iQ App. The R1 will sense the room temperature which will be displayed on the App. Must be used in conjunction with the Hub.
The R1 Receiver features a 1 hour Boost function and Herschel’s latest open-window detection technology.
Choose this option if you prefer to control by an App without any local devices.
Note: Herschel iQ controls will only work with Herschel heaters. Attempted use with any other heater brand will invalidate the warranty.
*Note: internet-enabling with the iQ Hub is only available on T1 (Gen 3) and R1 (Gen 3) models, launched November 2018).
