Heating system control

The visualization and control of the heating system remotely is free of charge and possible from anywhere in the world.

And when you arrive, your home is already warm and cosy. In addition, you can easily check the operating status of your heating system even if you happen to be away from home. Specific data regarding your KWB boiler, buffer storage tank and DHWC can be called up 24/7. You can make the following adjustments online at any time:
- Switch heating on and off
- Change heating times
- Change heating programmes (e.g.: automatic operation, convenient operation, frost protection operation, party operation)

Remote maintenance from your mobile phone
Your KWB Comfort Online also ensures more operational reliability. You will receive a text message (SMS) or e-mail if the status of your KWB heating changes. You can immediately remedy small faults remotely. If desired, you can also provide access to your heating system to a third party, e.g. your heating installer or , who will then take care of your boiler. As the owner of a KWB heating system, you will still always retain control over your data. KWB has secured the entire communication between boiler and KWB Comfort Online platform using encryption technologies that you already know from your online banking (Captcha, TAN and SSL).
