The technology behind Smart systems is clearly getting more complex and all encompassing. Systems such as BEMS – building energy management systems – allow for the integration of heating, lighting, electronic fire and security systems and have become commonplace in new commercial and public sector projects, but where does the future lie in the residential and office marketplace?
Renowned for innovative electric heating solutions, Midlands-based electrical heating specialist Ecolec, has launched its latest novel design solution – Ecolec Multiple Zone – a new wireless, remotely controlled Smart Controller – using a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone – that allows you to control temperature and heating in up to 10 separate zones within your home with absolute precision.
Volunteers and staff at Compton hospice undertake a huge number of events and attend a range of outdoor opportunities for fund raising and raising awareness of the hospice and what it does for its community.

Ecolec offered a solution to this problem for the hospice which was gratefully received.
