Cosy: the smart thermostat, made simple

Just because something is smart, doesn’t mean it has to be complicated to use. That’s why, when we created our Cosy smart heating controller, we made sure that using it was a piece of cake. Mmmm, cake.

So, how have we managed to combine smartness with simplicity? Here are just a few of the ways we’ve made Cosy as easy to use as possible…

The Cosy Display

We started off by designing a clear and easy-to-read display – one that would allow you to see what your temperature is from across the room. By positioning the three heating mode buttons (Cosy, Comfy and Slumber) on the display itself, this makes changing modes super convenient too. Speaking of heating modes…

Three simple heating modes

With Cosy’s three heating modes, you’re in control! Take your pick from Comfy, Cosy or Slumber mode – then sit back, relax with a cuppa and let Cosy do the rest. The default temperatures for these are 18ºC for Comfy, 22ºC for Cosy and 12ºC for Slumber, but you can adjust these to be whatever temperature you’d like using your handy Cosy App.

Seven unique schedules 

Using a combination of these three different heating modes (plus Hibernate mode for when you want your heating off but your pipes protected from frost!) you can schedule up to seven unique heating schedules to suit your life – one for each day of the week!

Cosy will then automatically control your heating and hot water whilst you focus on everything else (working, feeding the dog, dropping the kids off at football…) that needs doing in your busy day-to-day life. 

Cosy App

You’ll be pleased to hear that it’s not just our Cosy Display that’s easy to use. We’ve also made sure that our handy apps (for Android, iOS and the web) are as straightforward to use as possible.

This means that, if your plans change, you can adjust your heating settings quickly and easily whilst you’re on the go – and from wherever you are in the world – to suit your plans.

Even Cosy installation is a walk in the park…

Good news! When you order your Cosy through our web store, installation comes included as standard. We’re all about keeping things simple here at Cosy Towers, which is why we take care of all the technical installation stuff for you.

When you buy a Cosy single zone, twin zone or hot water extension pack, you’ll be asked to select an installation date at the checkout. Then, all you need do is sit back, relax and wait for your Cosy to be installed by one of our friendly installers. Easy peasy!

What’s more, because Cosy can be installed alongside your existing thermostat, this means you don’t have to remove your current heating controls (and redecorate!) and that Cosy can come with you if you move house.

  • With the introduction of Amazon Alexander and Google Home will you be integrating your hub with IFTTT to control heating? This seems to be the way forward with Nest, Honeywell and similar companies providing this flexibility.

  • Hi Lloyd. Thanks for the question! Integration with other platforms is something we’re looking into at the moment. We’ll keep you posted – and let you know as soon as we have any more details on this. Michelle

  • Integration with Akexa (an Alexa skill) would be great, as would connection via the harmony hub.

  • Hi Simon. You’ll be pleased to hear that this is something our tech team is working on at the moment. Stay tuned for more info on Cosy / Alexa integration news coming soon… Michelle

  • I’ll just add my voice to the questioning cries for iftttt etc support. Are you thinking only Alexa at the moment?

    I have the Google home box — which hasn’t officially been launched in the UK– rather than Alexa, so please don’t forget IFTTT (which permits use on multiple systems). My kickstarter-edition cosy boiler-switch is dying. I’d like to stick with cosy if/when I replace it, but smart home integration is important. . . .

  • Thanks for the question, Jan. IFTTT integration is something we’re also looking into. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have any more news to share on this. Stay tuned! Michelle 🙂
