This software update includes exciting new Rithum Switch features, including variable fonts sizes, audio grouping, and whole range of climate control features called Rithum Stat.
Smart climate control with Rithum Stat
This is our climate control system which will shortly move out of beta and into general release. Out of the box, Rithum Switch* users will now have access to a full suite of climate control functions without the need for a third party integration^ from other smart heating systems. From our main climate screen users can:
- use the sliding scale to manually adjust the target temperature, or alternatively click the + and –
- manually turn the climate system on and off
- select individual zones or rooms from other Climate integrations
- resume the schedule after any manual overrides
Yes, there is also a schedule! Using the left tab users can navigate to a dedicated scheduling screen, which allows users to plan their weekly climate needs with up to 8 time and heating set points per day. It’s super easy to use, in each day add or remove time blocks with just a few taps, then the copy and paste feature allows you to copy one days setting to another.
Once your switch has updated to 2.0.0, simply navigate to Settings > Rithum Stat, to configure.
*Unfortunately earlier switch models do not have a temperature sensor built-in
^Requires relay with Philips Hue bridge integration (support for other integration relays coming soon)
Multiple Climate integration support
Just like being able to support multiple Scene or Media plugins, Rithum Switch now supports multiple Climate integrations. This means that you can have another Climate integration such as Fibaro Climate or Tado alongside each other and alongside Rithum Stat.
To use this feature, simply add multiple Climate integrations as required.
With our BluOS and Sonos audio integrations, users are now able to create and edit groups, which allows users to create a fully immersive audio experience across the whole home, an open plan zone, or just a single room.
Once updated to 2.0.0, simply access via the new groups icon in the zone list on the Media screen.
Variable Scene Button text sizes
Something that has been regularly requested by our users is the ability to change the text size on the Scenes screen, and now you can! After the update has been installed navigate to Settings > Screens > Scenes Screen > Button Text Size and select from small, medium or large text sizes.
In case you want to see what different screens have to offer, Rithum Switch now contains three demo plugins: Demo Scenes, Demo Media, and Demo Climate. Simply set them up like other plugins and you can play with their interfaces.
Software update roll-out
As with all our updates, it will be sent to you remotely and install automatically. So, what do you have to do? Absolutely nothing. Updates will be staged over the coming days so hold tight.
We hope you enjoy the latest software update and please do feel free to leave us a TrustPilot review if you haven’t done so already.
