Dutch operator KPN is launching its own smart thermostat, under the name KPN SmartLife Comfort. This allows users to control their home heating system, regardless of their energy supplier. Using an app on a smartphone or tablet they can programme heating times, monitor their usage and manage the heating system. The device is produced by Plugwise and is available online for purchase for EUR 6 per month on a two-year contract. The package comes with the thermostat, app and a module to link the device to the heating system. It works with any internet connection.
