Vaillant Controls
Understanding Vaillant Controls

What are Vaillant Controls?

Continuing our series of helpful information on boiler technology we focus this time on Vaillant Controls. What are Vaillant Controls?

Vaillant controls use a technology called eBUS to communicate with other Vaillant products, such as Vaillant boilers. Rather than just turning products on and off like a traditional thermostat, eBUS allows our products to carry out more complex decisions based on what your heating system requires.

For example, eBUS allows our controls to activate your boiler at only 20% modulation if only a slight increase in room temperature is required. It’s this modulation that makes the boiler run at its most efficient point, this process is called enhanced load compensation.

Designed to work harmoniously with all Vaillant boilers, our controls deliver a greater level of communication, ensuring your boiler is working to its peak performance.

The range is as follows:


Traditional Control


timeSWITCH 150

Our basic boiler control allows you to adjust the heating programme by choosing when you would like your system to switch on or off, and how long you would like it to operate for. The timeSWITCH 150 is compatible with all Vaillant ecoTEC & ecoFIT combi boilers and plugs directly into the boiler without the need for any wiring. This timer provides easy-to-use, basic timing for your central heating needs.

VRT 50 room thermostat

This easy-to-use, intelligent digital room thermostat shows the current room temperature and allows you to alter the desired room temperature, whilst providing greater efficiency.


Traditional Digital Control


timeSWITCH 160

Our digital plug in timer allows you to adjust the heating time programmes by choosing three time periods a day; when you would like your heating and hot water system to switch on or off, and how long you would like it to operate for.

VRT 15 room thermostat

The easy-to-use, simple 230Vac room thermostat, has been designed to look and feel familiar. It can be used with our timeSWITCH 160 to provide simple and straight-forward control of your boiler.


Load Compensating Control


VRT 350 / 350F

Our intelligent room compensating controls allow you to fine tune your heating system, giving you even more control. These controls allow you to turn your system on or off at different times of the day, and continually monitors and adapts to give you the desired room temperature. The blue backlit screen and plain text display make the VRT 350 (wired) and VRT 350F (wireless) easy and clear to understand. Only two push buttons and one rotary knob are needed to select and change data. Plus, when you go on holiday the VRT 350 and VRT 350F have a holiday set-back function, which reduces the temperature in your property and heats it up before you come back home.


Smart Internet Connected Control

vSMART is a wireless heating and hot water control and smartphone app, giving you the ability to take control of your heating from anywhere, at any time. vSMART can be installed in as little as 25 minutes. The vSMART room thermostat can be either wall mounted or free-standing, depending on the homeowner’s preference.


Weather Compensating Control

The VRC 700 system control allows you to manage multi-zone heating and hot water systems. Designed to work multiple products and zones, the VRC 700 effortlessly ensures your appliances are working to their peak performance and always maintaining optimum efficiency. Available in a wired version (VRC 700) or wireless version (VRC 700F) and with the addition of the VR920, the VRC 700/700F can be controlled via the smartphone app. The VRC 700 control allows for a single interface, that will communicate and control all Vaillant appliances. The VRC 700 will automatically identify and use the most efficient, and therefore most cost effective product at any time.
