Digistat Universal Thermostats for Social Housing

  • 27 Oct 2021

Introducing the new Digistat – an innovative range of universal wired and wireless digital thermostats. Bridging the gap between traditional and smart heating controls, the new Digistat is simply smarter. Providing accessible and easy-to-use heating controls for all tenants with differing requirements in just four variants.

Made for fighting fuel poverty

Over 50% of a home’s energy consumption is for heating and hot water. The new Digistat from Drayton has been developed with simplicity in mind, to ensure homeowners can benefit from optimum control and lower energy bills. Load Compensation can save up to 10% on the annual energy bill (approx. £54), and by using the smart phone to control the heating, users can save an additional 30% per year (approx. £33). The new Digistat can therefore save tenants a total of £87 on their annual bill. 

Rest assured that these features mean the new Digistat meets Boiler Plus requirements, enabling maximum efficiency for home heating.


Made for everyone

The beauty of the new Digistat is its versatility, making it suitable for any type of tenant. This universal solution offers 7 day, 5/2 day, 24hr programmable settings or it can operate as a simple room thermostat. With just four simple variants, this means reduced van stock.

Optional app control via a Bluetooth connection makes the new Digistat suitable for those who just want basic heating control, to those who are more tech-savvy. The Wiser app also gives tenants with less mobility the ability to have better control of the heating from their phone. Audible feedback and recessed buttons make this a perfect solution for vulnerable tenants and those with visual impairments. 

The Research Institute for Disabled Customers (RIDC) comments: “This product would be great for those who want a simple-to-use programmable thermostat. Its temperature adjustment buttons that require minimal pressure make it ideal for those with dexterity impairments.”


Made for app control

Building on the success and popularity of the Wiser Home app, the Digistat uses the same intuitive app to control heating and hot water when at home. Bluetooth connectivity means there’s no need for Wi-Fi connection and app is optional. Tenants have the extra reassurance that their system is only controllable from within the property thanks to the secure, local Bluetooth connection. New tenants moving in can simply download the app and pair with the Digistat, any previous connections are disregarded.

Ease of use of the Wiser Home app has been rated the top feature by customers, making heating control simpler. Better control of home heating means maximum comfort, minimum energy usage and reduced energy bills.

Made for all applications

Whether the install is one zone or two, combi or conventional gas or oil boiler, heat pump or electrical heating, the new Digistat has you covered. Developed with social housing in mind, every variant can be set up to use the Service Interval feature. New, yet reassuringly familiar, installation is as easy as ever.

Made for energy efficiency

Away Mode – set the heating back for when you’re not at home to save up to 24% heating an empty house.

Timed Away Mode – If you are going on holiday, you can set your heating to turn off when you leave, and back on when you come home, making sure you return to a cosy house. Simply set the times and dates in your app.

Delayed Start – where the system learns the thermal profile of the home and can save up to 10% energy use.

Made for sustainability

As the drive towards Net Zero accelerates, we must all play our part to make a difference. Schneider Electric has a ranking as the world’s most sustainable company by Corporate Knights, and at Drayton, sustainability underpins everything the company does. From inception, the new Digistat’s design has sustainability at the forefront:

 – Optimised for heat pumps and electric heating
