The other device monitors your hot water consumption and optimizes the operation of the boiler or heat pump.
How does BRIQ manage the water heater?
The device optimizes the operation of the boiler or heat pump to achieve the lowest possible electricity consumption. It is done completely automatically, via your home wireless WiFi network.
How does it work?

How is that possible?
Let’s give you an example: Your family is usually showering between 8 and 9 pm in the evening, then hot water is not needed until 6 am when the first member of the family goes to work. A water boiler will not heat the water between 9 and 10 pm, when the price of electricity is higher, and then unnecessarily overnight. It will turn on sometime before 6 am, still at a low tariff. Hot water will be waiting for you exactly when you need it.
Am I in any way obliged to use the BRIQ device?
When choosing BRIQ, you will not be obliged to use the devices. But you might benefit from using BRIQ in relation to your electricity supplier. The system makes it easier for suppliers to anticipate electricity consumption and trade more accurately, so they will prepare a special offer for you. We are sure that you will always have the cheapest electricity as a BRIQ user.

Currently we are giving you the BRIQ package for free but it will cost 50 euros in the future.
