Heating with heat pumps is particularly efficient and environmentally friendly. They use the freely available environmental heat from air, water and earth.Read more
In an increasingly digital world, new needs and habits are emerging. The digital products and services from the Vaillant Group increase convenience and safety for system owners – from temperature control via app to consumption-optimised energy management: specialist trade companies, housing associations and property companies can efficiently organise their day-to-day business with the digital services from the Vaillant Group.
The term “smart” is ubiquitous in the modern world. In a smart home, there are various devices, such as heating, household appliances, consumer electronics and alarm systems, that can communicate with each other. They jointly coordinate their activity and adapt to the lifestyle habits of the inhabitants.
Smart systems detect whether renewable energies are available and give them preference for use. In many new buildings and renovation projects, the smart home has already become the standard. The Vaillant Group offers heating controls and corresponding apps that make the heating part of an intelligent system.
Digital services from the Vaillant Group make it possible to control your heating system in a smart and flexible way via app – even when you’re not at home.
System owners can permit a specialist trade company to have remote access to monitor, maintain and adjust their heating system. Due to the continuous remote monitoring and optimisation, on-site maintenance is only necessary every two years instead of annually. Overall, on-site appointments are significantly reduced. The Internet of Things makes it possible to identify necessary repairs at any time and from anywhere. With remote monitoring and parameterisation, the specialist trade company ensures that the heating system works efficiently in the long term and consumes as little energy as possible. Digital services thus allow system owners to save time and money.
Integrated into the smart home, the heating system adapts to the relevant weather conditions. Current weather data can be integrated via software and used to predict the availability of solar energy, so that its use can be planned. Intelligent software solutions offer energy-saving potential of up to 30 per cent – without loss of comfort. The result is an intelligent system that reduces electricity costs and CO2 emissions to a minimum.
The Vaillant Group develops digital products and services for specialist trade companies to support them in their day-to-day business. If system owners have allowed remote access, installers can see in real time whether the device is running optimally, if a fault is reported or if there is a maintenance notice. They can also view the repair and maintenance history.
For efficient system planning, the Vaillant Group offers digital applications that make it possible to implement individual calculations or designs quickly and easily. Complex heating systems can be planned in just a few minutes with a system configurator. Digital product registration facilitates the commissioning of and ideal settings for the heating systems.
Using artificial intelligence makes it possible to ensure reliable operation, avoid faults and have greater security against failures. If issues such as decreasing water pressure occur, the heating system automatically sends notifications to the specialist trade company. This allows them to identify necessary repairs or maintenance before functionality is limited, and thus to proactively maintain the device (predictive maintenance).
Housing associations, property companies and, increasingly, energy suppliers often manage a larger number of heating systems.
Digital solutions from the Vaillant Group help them to manage their group of systems quickly, easily and reliably. They make central remote monitoring and management of a large number of heating systems possible, which ensures optimal system operation. The data from the heating systems can be integrated into the customer management systems of the housing associations and property companies.
Digital applications and processes are essential in modern everyday life. But recognising and further developing the digital skills and talents of our employees is equally important. The Vaillant Group offers individual programmes for that purpose.
Moreover, the Vaillant Group drives the development of digital services and business models as well as the further digitalisation of business processes. This includes the complete modernisation of our IT systems and the redesigning of all business processes.
