I thought I’d reveal my latest Z-wave Home Automation project, to be able to control the immersion hot water heating unit with Z-wave / Vera. The reason for needing to do that is basically because our gas central heat is very old and presently we cannot have water only turned on with the gas. So in the summer a few months we rely on the electric immersion heater, that I often start and then forget about and I have been known to leave it switched on for days, which isn’t good!

Irrelevant answers are rife. Definitely, not because the ‘helper’ doesn’t understand the question, but because Google’s nearest match is not close to enough. Having said that, however, there can be an impetus for even novices to learn and get their replies the following, as providing irrelevant or worthless answers is inclined not to have them the status they’re looking for.
