    Please note: the updated T2 and R2 thermostat and receiver are not compatible with older T1 and R1 legacy products. 

    R2 receivers must be used with a T2 thermostat in order to work as intended. Without a T2 thermostat, the R2 receiver will not provide any temperature control for your infrared panels.

    Receivers can accommodate a maximum load of 10 Amps (2300W in a 230V standard supply), however, the manufacturer recommends a load of 8.5 Amps (1955W at 230V) if you will be using your infrared heaters continually. Installation must always be carried out by a professional electrician as each heater must be hardwired to a receiver.

    Be aware that radio interference can occur near TVs or computers so it is advisable to install both the thermostat and any receivers at least 1m away from any electricals. The range of the thermostat’s frequency is 200m when unimpeded by walls and furniture.

    R2 Receivers are not suitable for installation anywhere they might be exposed to water. If you want to control panels in your bathroom, you will need to make sure the panel is wired into the receiver in a location which falls outside the “wet” bathroom zones – namely, at least 60cm away from any source of running or splashing water. Receivers must not be installed anywhere where there will be risk of water contact – whether by dripping, splashing, or touching with wet hands. If in doubt, do not install. Common sense should prevail.

    Please note: Building Regs (Part F) since 2006 require new or refurbished bathrooms to possess adequate ventilation (15 litres / second with 15 minute overrun). Where adequate ventilation has not been provided, Herschel cannot accept responsibility for damage caused by moisture in the R2 unit if failure occurs within the warranty period. The warranty for both the T2 thermostat and R2 receiver will be invalidated if they are used with non-Herschel heaters.

The Herschel iQ system is designed to provide comprehensive control over all your Herschel heaters. When your heaters are wired into a R2 Receiver, you can change their settings using the Smart Life WiFi app, or through its compatible T2 Thermostat directly.

R2 receivers are able to pick up WiFi signals directly from your router and will relay any inputted commands to the heaters so that your heating system is automatically updated. Once you download the Smart Life app and pair it to the R2 receiver, you can then make changes to your heating no matter where you go, so you can keep tabs on your energy usage and keep running costs to a minimum. This lets you control your entire heating system from a single point of use, providing unparalleled convenience and efficiency. A boost button is also incorporated into each receiver which allows you to enjoy a quick burst of heat for an hour without altering your schedule.

Each R2 receiver must be paired with a T2 thermostat in order to provide your panels with temperature control; without it, the receiver will only be able to provide its in-built heat boost function. The T2 thermostat allows manual programming so you can create a bespoke heating schedule for your working week, as well as different routines for Saturday and Sunday. It also provides access to manual and eco modes, as well as extra energy-saving features like adaptive start and open window detection.

Each receiver can accommodate a maximum load of 10 Amps (2300W at 230V) but the manufacturer recommends an 8.5 Amp continuous load (1955W at 230V) if you're going to be using your heaters often. If you want to zone your heating – i.e. have separate heating schedules for different areas of your home – you will need to purchase multiple T2 Thermostats.

These receivers come with a 2 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty and are only for use with Herschel heaters.
