These Ecostrad Accent iQ infrared heaters are designed primarily for ceiling mounted fitting. The 270w panel can be used in ceiling grids and simply slots into place with no additional fixtures needed. Otherwise, all of the panels must be purchased with either the direct mounting kit or the suspension mounting kit. These kits are sold separately. Ecostrad Accent IR Infrared Ceiling Panels can be wall mounted if desired but due to their lower wattages, the stated ‘heats up to’ areas will be reduced. Please see our dedicated Accent IR wall mounted range for heaters that are specially designed for this use.
The signal range between the receiver and the temperature sensor is 5m. If it is out of this range, the heater may not pair with the sensor.
Accent panels can be installed in bathroom zones 2 or 3, however, they must be hardwired to a fused spur by a professional electrician. This is not a DIY task. Always defer to the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding the bathroom suitability of any product.
Please take care when installing multiple electric heaters to avoid overloading the ring main of your property. If you are unsure, always consult a professional electrician, who will be able to hardwire them to the mains via a fused spur if necessary.
Ecostrad Accent iQ Infrared Ceiling Panels come with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on the heater body and a separate 1 Year Warranty on the receiver.

What You Will Need
Ecostrad Accent iQ infrared ceiling panels allow your heating system to be kept safely out of reach and come with a neutral white finish that blends in with most interiors. Offering a broad spread of warmth that’s projected down toward living levels, these efficient panels are great for public facing areas as well as homes with young children.
The Accent delivers gentle far infrared heat, which is absorbed by walls and surfaces to bring your interiors up to a uniform temperature. There’s no heat loss through draughts – the infrared it emits is retained by the fabric of the building which means that less energy is needed to keep your rooms at the right comfort level. It creates this mellow heat using a carbon crystal film element that efficiently conducts heat into the room whilst also ensuring the panel is ultra-light. The elements in Accent panels are all covered with a patented, fire-resistant coating that protects the elements whilst conducting heat efficiently into the room.
The biggest strength of the Accent iQ is that it’s WiFi ready out of the box – all you need to do is set up the heater then download the Smart Life app to your phone or tablet. Each heater has a receiver that connects directly to your router so no extra gateways are needed. Once it’s paired to your home network, you can then connect it to the app and program your heater from anywhere in the world with a simple swipe and tap of your phone screen. The Smart Life app offers unparalleled control over your heating, allowing you to create a custom schedule for every day of the week. You can set unlimited heating periods per day and choose start and end times down to each individual minute. The app even lets you adjust your heating from the comfort of your chair with its integrated Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control.
Accent iQ infrared heating panels are supplied with their own wireless temperature sensor which relays the ambient temperature of your room to the app. Each sensor can be paired with an unlimited number of heaters, giving you the freedom to group heaters together so that they follow the same schedule. The sensor can be either wall mounted or used with the desk stand provided. If you would prefer to wire the panel into a different external thermostat, or if you want to use it manually, a bypass switch on the rear of the heater can be used to suspend the connection with the supplied controller.
These Accent IR panels can be installed in a number of different ways: you can purchase them with a direct mounting kit for a fitting that’s tight to the ceiling, or purchase them with a suspension kit which can be the better choice for high-ceilinged rooms. Our smallest 270w panel is also suitable for installation in a standard office ceiling grid, in which case, it can simply be slotted into place without the need for any extra fittings.
Accent iQ infrared ceiling panels are able to use a lower wattage to heat rooms compared to their wall mounted counterparts due to their fitting location. As they’re installed on the ceiling, they stay warmer for longer because heat naturally rises to the top of the room; this means they don’t need to use as much power to maintain the same temperature. By opting for a ceiling mounted heating solution, you can warm interiors using less energy overall which means even bigger long-term savings on running costs.
Ecostrad Accent iQ infrared ceiling panels are designed to be as versatile as possible and can be installed in three different ways to suit the space you need to heat:Directly mounted to the ceiling When purchased with the direct mounting kit, these panels can be installed so that they’re fixed tight to the surface of the ceiling, offering an unobtrusive look that blends in with your interior décor. This type of fitting is great for rooms with a standard ceiling height. Suspended from the ceiling Purchase the suspension kit if you have a high-ceilinged property and need to bring the panels closer to the floor. The kit comes supplied with wires that can be cut to the required length so you can easily keep the panels at the ideal height. Installed in a ceiling grid The 270w infrared panel in the Accent iQ range is just the right size to fit into suspended ceiling grids in offices and other commercial locations. When used in this way, it will neatly slot into place without the need to purchase any installation kits.
The Ecostrad Accent iQ’s WiFi connectivity allows you to control your heaters from anywhere in the world so you can adjust your heating whenever or wherever you please. Programming your heating is easy with the Smart Life app – its user-friendly interface lets you set a custom schedule for every day of the week and fine-tune your start and end times down to the minute. There’s no limit to the heating intervals you can set per day so every part of your home can stay in perfect sync with your lifestyle. The Smart Life app can also group heaters together so that they follow the same routine. Program your living room infrared panels to heat in time for when you arrive home and set all of your bedroom heaters to switch on later when you’re ready for bed. Whatever your routine, the Accent iQ will always keep in step with your habits, and if you need to react to a sudden change in plans, your home heating is only ever as far as your phone.
Controlling your heater really can be as easy as that with the Accent iQ’s voice control compatibility. Designed to work with Amazon and Google Home smart speakers, you can adjust temperatures and switch heaters on and off with a simple voice command. It’s a fantastic choice if you need your heaters to integrate with an existing smart home system or if you simply want the option of hands-free control. The Smart Life app even allows you to set a custom name for each heater in your property so you can refer to them in a way that’s more intuitive.
If you have another control system you want to wire the heater into, all you have to do is use the bypass switch on the rear of the Accent iQ panel. This switch breaks the connection with the wireless thermostat and allows the heater to follow the instructions of your external controller, so you’re free to change how you manage your heating further down the line.
