Has anybody tested Plugwise Floor and Koen on Homey? Both are aimed at controllong the valves for floor heating, but I’m trying to see when you want to use one or the other.
In my situation, I have 3 groups in the living room and the manifold, that is 3 valves and a pump.
From what I understand:
- Floor is a single valve, plugs right into a (wall)socket. In my case, I would need 3 Floors. For the pump I would need a Plug from Plugwise to swith it on/off,
- Koen looks like a cheaper solution when you have to control 2-6 valves all in one go. It requires a Plug to activate the Koen. Since the pump will also work with a Plug, perhaps they can both be controlled by the same plug.
When would you use one or the other? Does having 3 Floors in one room provide you with some (practical) flexibility, like have the colder side of your house heated just a tad more?
Open to your experiences and suggestions.
