PiHome – Smart Heating Control is home automation system or you can say central heating control systems that runs on credit card size single board computer Raspberry Pi. You can control your home heating from your smartphone, laptop or tablet, PiHome is a wireless boiler control which mean you don’t need to run cables from PiHome controller to your boiler or to your heating zone valve or to any temperature sensors in any heating zone.

PiHome is active heating control of your multi zoned heating, domestic hot water including electrical immersion with unlimited schedules, boost and night climate suites your needs.

PiHome version 1.x is faster and support the remote control of your heating systems from any where in the world without to changing or opening any ports on your router with PiConnect. Simply send email to info@pihome.eu to get this feature enabled on your PiHome Smart Heating.

To meet growing demand I’m exited to share an update with all the folks running PiHome as their heating controller, PiHome smart heating now support PHP 7, All PiHome code is migrated and test with php 7. PiHome support for php 7 released to public on 7th April. I m dedicating this upgrade to Sudan (Rhinoceros) and calling this version Rhinoceros.
