Using MCO Touch Panel with Storage Water Heater

Using MCO Touch Panel with Storage Water Heater

I am using the Ariston Andris Lux 15L storage water heater which I bought from Sim Siang Choon (IMM) for S$280.

Li Xiang and I are typical working adults. We leave the house at 9am, and return only after 9pm. Sometimes we will forget to switch off the storage water heater and there goes a few dollars to the electricity bill.

Together with the Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5), I also bought the Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave MultiSensor 6 from Automate Asia for S$110.

The MultiSensor 6 can be powered by both USB (Micro USB) or by 2x CR123A batteries. The batteries are not included in the packaging. Based on the specifications, the batteries are able to last you about 2 years.

Bought the Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5) from Automate Asia for S$110. The product is pretty new and it is not listed on their website yet.

After getting my hands on the Fibaro Starter Kit which includes a wall plug, I got kinda addicted to monitor my energy usage of my always-on switches like the television switch, Internet switch and computer switch.

I think I came across Automate Asia in the local news. So when I needed to make my house “smarter”, I decided to engage their services.

Note that this is not a sponsored post, I paid for their services. Just wanted to do a shout out to Mike and the team at Automate Asia for the awesome service with the answers to my noob questions.
