Heating Modes of Operation
The OWL Intuition heating control manages the temperature of your home at all times (24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days of the year). Each heating zone Room Sensor is always in one of the following five modes:
i. Comfort Period
Like a conventional heating control, the Heating Time Clock initially defines at what times you would like your home to be maintained at a comfortable Target temperature. These periods are known as Comfort Periods.
a. Warm Up - Unlike most heating controls, OWL Intuition is intelligent and calculates at what time it needs to switch the heating on to be at your Target temperature for the Start Time you have defined. OWL Intuition takes into account different factors such as your current local weather conditions.
b. Cool Down - Likewise OWL Intuition will determine when to switch the heating off, in advance of the Comfort heating period ending.
Intelligent Warm Up and Cool Down take the guesswork out of making your home comfortable for the times you need, whilst saving energy.
c. Boost - If you are feeling cold then the Heating Boost function will turn the heating on (if necessary) with a target of current room temperature + 1°C for one hour and then revert to previous mode and settings. You can configure temperature and time to suit your personal preferences (Heating Settings).
ii. Standby Period
In normal day-to-day operation, whenever OWL Intuition is not in a Comfort Period, it is in Standby mode. During these periods OWL Intuition will maintain a single Target temperature (configurable). For best economy your Standby temperature would normally be set at a low enough level such that the Standby heating will only come on during exceptionally cold weather.
When you are away from your home for an extended period of time, OWL Intuition can be put into a special Away mode. When in Away mode, OWL Intuition will maintain a frost protection temperature (configurable) for your home and hot water tank (if Tank Sensor is also installed).
Similar to Away mode, OWL Intuition can be preset as to when you will be away on holiday (start date & return date). When in Holiday mode, OWL Intuition will maintain a single Target temperature (configurable) for your home and hot water tank (if Tank Sensor is also installed).
v. Summer Mode
OWL Intuition automatically switches to Summer Mode between user configurable start and end dates. When in Summer Mode, OWL Intuition will maintain a frost protection temperature (configurable) for your home. When in Summer Mode, you can revert to the normal heating time clock by pressing the Comfort button. At midnight Summer Mode will be automatically activated again. Hot Water control, if fitted, is NOT affected by Summer Mode.
