Sønderborg (DK), October 2023 – We all know how hard a contractor’s routine can be, working diligently to create cozy and comfortable living spaces for homeowners. But amidst the renovations and installations, they face challenges that can slow down their progress and add unnecessary complexity to their projects. What if there was a solution that could streamline installations and enhance the comfort of homeowners, all while prioritizing security?
For thermostats that control electric underfloor heating, there is! The UWG5® WiFi LED Touch Thermostat from OJ Electronics is a game-changing innovation set to please contractors installing electric floor heating systems. This remarkable thermostat is not just about a new product available on the market – it’s about contractors discovering a powerful tool that simplifies their work and brings unparalleled comfort to homeowners.

No more fumbling through complex manuals or relying on additional support. The thermostat features a built-in installation wizard that guides every step of the way. It’s like having a trusted expert right at your fingertips, ensuring a seamless installation experience.
“We wanted to develop a product that would mean convenience for everyone: our resellers, the contractors, and end users. We understand contractors’ challenges when accessing homeowners’ WiFi networks for setup and operation. That is why we integrated Bluetooth connectivity into the thermostat,” explains Henrik Jensen, Product Manager for electric floor heating, North America at OJ Electronics©. This groundbreaking feature allows contractors to configure the thermostat through a user-friendly app, eliminating homeowners needing to share their private WiFi network. It’s a win-win situation – contractors save time, and homeowners enjoy enhanced security and privacy.

Whether at home or on the go, they can easily manage heating schedules, adjust settings, and monitor energy consumption. It’s a level of convenience that creates a truly comfortable living environment.
Security is a top priority in today’s digital landscape, and the UWG5 thermostat is built with robust security features to give homeowners peace of mind. “We’ve implemented the latest state-of-the-art encryption technology, TLS 1.3 – the same protocol used by banks – to ensure data transmissions remain secure and protected against potential threats. With the UWG5 thermostat, homeowners can enjoy the warmth of their floors while knowing their privacy is safeguarded,” details Henrik.
During the field tests, some contractors experienced the UWG5 thermostat firsthand and got raving about its simplicity and efficiency.
