    Hi all
    I want to be able to switch Radiators on and off in my home and I am looking for help/ideas to enable me to do this wirelessly.

    I have some battary powered programmable radiator valves and I think I should be able to dismantle these so that I can control the motor from a simple switch.
    What I need is the means to do this without wires.

    I have designed and built a Heating controller on my PC which interacts with a 1wire system of temperature sensors and mains switches that control my Boiler and zone valves. I would like to control individual radiators though so would like to add this capability to the system.

    I did buy a TI wireless dev kit a couple of years ago but it was rubbish.

    Has anyone any ideas of how I can do this please.

    Thanks


    Mike

    What about a wireless relay controller such as this?

    Edit: They also sell WiFi modules, but they are more expensive.

    thanks
    I will have a good look at this - might be a bit bulky though.
