PARIS, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Current smart heating solutions allow remote control without any machine intelligence, or alternatively rely on intelligence without (human) control. With Xperience, IJENKO is giving control to users, anywhere and anytime, and offers them analysis tools as a simple way of optimising their comfort at the lowestcost. This service allows users to naturally programme and manage various heating systems (boilers, radiators) which, until now, were seen as complex and diverse technical tools.

IJENKO is bringing the Internet of Things to manage the majority of gas, oil and wood-fired boilers across Europe using a new smart thermostat. The device can replace any standard "all or nothing" room thermostat (with remote or on-board sensors for radio connection to boilers). An OpenTherm+ version is also available for proportional control boilers. In addition, Xperience incorporates a multi-zone heating system with thermostatic heads for hot water radiators.
With Xperience, family lifestyle and comfort naturally control smart home heating at any time. Xperience provides unified, adjustable and self-learning management of heating systems within the home whilst allowing users absolute control over the fundamental decisions on how to optimise their comfort, depending on the thermal inertia of their household.
Finally, Xperience makes the link between heating and energy use, drawing on IJENKO's renowned expertise in terms of active energy measurement and efficiency.
IJENKO, a B2B platform, offers technical tools to service providers (API - programming interfaces, mobile and web interfaces, connected objects) so that they can create, under their brand name, an "improved" Xperience of heating for their customers. Already having been adopted by large industrial groups such as Toshiba through its European PLUZZY offer, Xperience is offered as a service by IJENKO under its own brand name.
According to Serge Subiron, CEO of IJENKO, "IJENKO is launching Xperience, a natural and intuitive user management system, enhanced with machine intelligence which offers options for optimising decision-making and implementation with just one click, in line with the company's values for the past 6 years."
"Taking concrete action with regards to energy use without sacrificing comfort is a major challenge; however, it is difficult to achieve this alone in an effective manner," explains Alain Kergoat, Managing Director of Toshiba Smart Community Division. "This is why it is important to offer solutions which guide our choices and help us to monitor our usage, and this is what PLUZZY offers drawing on the IJENKO smart heating service."
