About this deal

While some heaters benefit from smart controls, I’m not fully convinced here. Princess has covered all the basics, but remember that this device is about heating people directly, rather than the room. There’s less point in, for example, scheduling it to come on before bedtime if it’s not going to result in a toasty bedroom when you retire for the night. I wonder if the Smart Infrared Heater might benefit more from a movement sensor similar to the one used by Meaco’s Motion Eye 1.8kW. This would allow it to detect when you’re near, and switch on for a predefined time. Performance

Infrared heaters have a markedly different effect to fan or convection heaters. The latter heat a room by circulating warm air which, over time, heats the room and everything in it. They also radiate heat, which is chiefly why it feels particularly warm when you stand directly in front of them. Infrared heaters, on the other hand, focus on this second method of heating. They directly warm up any people, surfaces or pets that their infrared light falls on. If you want to feel the benefit, you need to be reasonably close to the heater. Looking for an energy-efficient heater that heats a specific room in the house? With only 700 W, the Princess 343700 Smart Infrared Panel Heater is exactly what you need. Control the heater by app or by voice command, set time schedules and enjoy the warmth without having to heat the entire house. This means removing and refitting two screws, but on my sample one of them was seized – I stripped the head trying to remove it, and ultimately had to make do with simply resting the heater in one of the feet. There’s no handle to help move it around, although this is a light heater and my sample never got too hot to touch during use.Do you struggle to keep your office warm in winter? Then the Princess Smart Glass Panel Heater really is something for you. The panel heater has a modern design and is a real eyecatcher in your interior. Control the smart heater via the HomeWizard Climate app and make sure you always come home to a warm and cozy room. Because of the 1500W power, the heater heats up fast so you never have to sit in the cold for long. Mount the panel heater to the wall as permanent heating or take it with you in whichever room you need it. The Princess Smart Glass Panel Heater is a real addition to your smart home and indispensable in winter. When you are working from home, you don’t want to heat up the entire house. Therefore, the panel heater is a perfect solution. Simple and easy to control by using voice command, your smartphone or manually and thanks to the free Homewizard Climate app you can set up your own schedules, so you will always enter a nicely heated room. For example, set up a program for family members or for different rooms in your home and set your panel heater to turn itself on and off to suit your daily routines. This is a silent heater, apart from a beep whenever you change its target temperature. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a way to switch this off, but otherwise it should be easy to live with. That’s particularly true if you’re mounting it on a wall: it only stands about five centimetres proud, so it takes up little of your living space. Princess doesn’t mention or recommend it, but in theory it would be possible to mount this panel on a ceiling and have it still be effective. That’s the case for the Aeno Premium Eco Smart Heater; just make sure that ceiling mounting is done carefully.

Or even What are the Top 10 affordable (best budget, best cheap, or even best expensive!!!) Infrared Panel Heater 700w available? Etc. From the control panel you can turn the heater on or off, change the target temperature, and trigger the Wi-Fi pairing mode.The heater can shut off automatically by setting time schedules in the app or using the timer function Not enough room to place a panel heater in the room? No problem, you can easily mount the heater to a wall by using the wall mounts. But if you want to use the panel heater in various rooms, just attach the feet to easily move the heater around the house. The panel heater has a carbon crystal heating element. The quality of carbon crystal is very stable and has accurate heating temperatures and power settings. Carbon crystal has a very even heat distribution across the product and so with the same size unit, less carbon crystal is needed meaning lower energy consumption. Regular heaters make the air feel dense, which makes you feel drowsy unless you ventilate often for some fresh air. This cycle of letting warm and cold air in your room can be a waste of energy. While heated air dissipates easily in a ventilated area, infrared heaters do not rely on heating the air around you. Instead, in the same way the sun warms up the earth, infrared only heats the surface within direct range of the heater. Infrared heaters consume less energy because they don’t have to heat up an entire room, only the people and surfaces in it. This means the air remains cool and fresh, so you can continue focusing on your work or hobbies.

In use this heater is true to Princess’ power rating, consuming a peak of 365W, and falling below 1W when in standby. Over 30 minutes’ continuous use it consumed 0.19kWh – less than half what I’d expect from a typical fan or convection heater on its lowest setting, and about 6.3p at the current 34p per kilowatt hour price cap. The Princess Smart Panel Heater has a luxurious appearance because of the glass housing and the LED indicators. Via the display or the app on your smartphone you can choose two different heating settings and set the timer. With the timer you can decide how long you want the heater to be on for and when it automatically shuts off. The panel heater has an adjustable thermostat and can heat from from 15⁰ to 35⁰. The Princess Smart Panel Heater is the perfect addition to your smart home. With the iOS or Android HomeWizard Climate app you can control your panel heater from anywhere you want. In the app you can turn the heater on/off and adjust the temperature. Set time schedules or start heating your bedroom while you are doing some cleaning up. This way you never have to sleep in a cold bedroom. Princess’ app makes it easy to add and configure the heater, although on Android it nags you for Bluetooth and Location permissions every time you use it thereafter. I grumpily refused to grant them other than during setup, but the app still worked fine.This Princess smart infrared panel heater is part of a wide range of smart home items that can be controlled with your smartphone.
