The UK-based Rio Heating has unveiled one of the first fully-fledged smart heaters in the world, the Rio ARC.
The elegantly designed curved ARC convector heater will allow users to control the heat in their home using HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, offering the ability to change the ARC temperature using the built-in Home app on iOS and macOS just like in the dedicated Rio heating and Siri voice commands.
Rio offers all owners of multiple ARC heaters who will be able to create heating zones around the house and manage them anywhere in the world, and compared to traditional convector heaters, ARC will offer up to 40% reduction in heating costs.
Available from March 2020, the Rio Heating website does not yet announce the price for ARC and does not indicate whether or not the product will be available outside the UK, but more information will likely be available closer to the launch of the smart heater. .
