    HI Guys,
    I've got an Ecotec 837 being controlled by a VRC430, which is ok, but there's times when I go away for a day or two when it would be really useful to turn the heating off/on remotely.
    Do Vaillant do any sort of system that allows for internet control yet? Or is there a better sort of controller I could retrofit to enable remote control?

    Thanks

    Ed.

    The VRC430 is normally used as a weather compensated system and directly controls the boiler's flow temperature.

    I am not sure but expect that the Salus will only give an on/off control.

    But it can still be used together with the VRC430 just to turn heating on/off.

    Thanks for the replies guys, i've emailed Vaillant about their intelligent control as the information about is pretty poor.

    How would you use the Salus with the vrc430, i thought when using the 430 it took over all control of the boiler.

    Thanks
