Another Smart Home API for WiFi thermostats

January 10, 2019 // By Nick Flaherty
nVent Electric has announced new smart home integrations for its WiFi-enabled, floor heating thermostat and a new developer Applications Programming Interface (API).

The integrations for the Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and IFTTT for the NuHeat Signature system are launching alongside an application program interface (API) for developers and system integrators, enabling them to connect the Signature thermostat to any custom home automation system.

The functionality, combined with the existing integrations for Nest and Control4, allows developers to create a personalized, integrated floor heating system for the connected home and are being shown at the Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas this week.

Signature is the first WiFi-enabled line voltage thermostat that allows consumers to control their floor heat using all of these smrt home platforms. In addition to the expanded compatibility, Signature still offers all the key WiFi-enabled benefits of energy use monitoring, live weather forecasts, and remote control via the Signature app for iOS and Android or via  www.mynuheat.com. All nVent NUHEAT thermostats are covered by a three-year warranty.

All existing Signature thermostats are compatible with the new integrations and owners can learn how to activate these functions by visiting  www.nuheat.com/connected-home. This reverse compatibility ensures both new and existing customers can make any house a personalized, connected home.

“Signature is now the most connected floor heating thermostat available. We are excited for the millions of homeowners who will now be able to integrate their nVent NUHEAT Floor Heating System with a home assistant, smart home device, or home automation system,” said Wally Lo, nVent NuHeat's Product Manager.

The Signature API includes hardware integration tools provides developers and integrators with everything they need to create custom connections for home automation systems.

London-based nVent owns the Schroff, Pentair and Hoffman brands.
