    R1 receivers must be hardwired into your heaters and the mains by a qualified electrician. Do not attempt DIY installation. The receiver should be situated at least 1 metre away from other electrical appliances such as radios, TVs, routers or computers to prevent interference.

    The iQ thermostat must not be used in a bathroom. Receivers can only be used in bathroom spaces which fall outside the “wet” bathroom zones – in other words, at least 60cm away from any source of running or splashing water. Receivers must not be installed in locations where there is any risk of water contact – whether by dripping, splashing, or touching with wet hands. If in doubt, do not install. Common sense should prevail.

  • Warranty
    All Herschel iQ units comes with a 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty. Please note: Building Regs (Part F) since 2006 require new or refurbished bathrooms to possess adequate ventilation (15 litres / second with 15 minute overrun). Where adequate ventilation has not been provided, Herschel cannot accept responsibility for damage caused by moisture in the R1 unit if failure occurs within the warranty period.

  • What You Will Need

Purchasing additional R1 receivers allows you to expand your Herschel iQ system to incorporate additional heaters. You can pair an unlimited number of R1 receivers with your T1 thermostat or, alternatively, connect R1 receivers to the iQ Hub for WiFi controlled heating without the need for a controller.

The Herschel iQ system allows you to control all your infrared panels from one intuitive touchscreen interface, as well as via the Herschel heating app on a compatible smart device. Using either the T1 thermostat or the Herschel app, set a heating schedule with different temperatures for different periods of time and let the receivers do the rest — communicating via a radio frequency with your heaters and relaying the changes.

Each receiver can control a maximum load of up to 10 Amps (2300W in a 230V power supply) but a 8.5 Amp continual load (1955W at 230V) is recommended if you're planning to use your heaters often and for long periods. You can connect an unlimited number of receivers to your thermostat: they will all receive the same commands and run to the same schedule, much like a central heating system controlled by a single thermostat. If you want to control any of your infrared heaters separately, you’ll need to purchase an additional thermostat. Different thermostats can be set to communicate on different frequencies, so there will be no conflict if you use several in one house.

Each Herschel iQ receiver has a built-in heat boost button which can be used to temporarily override your program and switch on the heaters wired into that receiver for an hour. This is a convenient way of extending your comfort without wasting energy: only the heaters nearest to you will be using power, and you don’t have to go to the thermostat to make adjustments.

Please note, older models of the R1 are not compatible with the third generation T1 thermostat or iQ Hub. If you’re unsure what generation product you require, please contact our sales team.
