Automating a Gas Water Heater

Save Money on Your Gas Bill.
Extend the Life of Your Water Heater.
 

Every time your gas water heater fires throughout the day and night, it’s costing you money and aging your appliance.  Save on your energy bill and extend the life of your water heater with the programmable Gas Water Heater Timer.

 
•  Installs in minutes on your gas water heater.
•  Ensures your water heater is only producing hot water when you need it.
•  Simple integration with M1 using "appliance style" plug-in modules from a variety of M1 partners including
   UPB, Z-Wave, Insteon, X-10 and more! 

•  Great for second homeowners and property managers.

How Does the Gas Water Heater Timer Work?
The Gas Water Heater Timer installs easily in place of your existing water heater “gas control knob”. Then simply plug-in the integrated automation module into the unit and M1 can automate and control the gas water heater!

Prevent the main burner from firing for periods of time when demand is low, and raise the temperature setting for periods of time when hot water demand is high. Use M1's powerful rules programming to control the unit based on time/date schedule, system arm state, environmental conditions and more.

M1 also offers a variety of user interfaces for on-site and remote control of the Gas Water Heater Timer from keypads, PCs, smart phones, tablets and other web enabled devices. No internet connection? No problem! The built-in telephone remote control feature allows you to control the system from any phone with easy to understand voice prompts and touch tone commands!
