Internet Connected Boilers: Any Interest or Experience?
I've been doing some research into approaches for connecting residential boilers to the internet for the purposes of monitoring operating conditions and communicating possible problems before they result in a complete shutdown.
While some new boilers (and furnaces) have this capability, I am looking for feedback on devices that could be retrofitted to existing installations. Honeywell, for example, used to market its EnviraLINK, system for this purpose, but no longer does so. Emerson currently sells a system called ComfortGuard.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these systems (or others) or any thoughts on them? Would it be useful for pros to have a system that could, at a minimum, send them the diagnostic information from from a boiler's control board before they made a service call? Would it be of any interest to homeowners to be able to receive alerts on their phone or by email of maintenance issues or impending problems?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have.
