The new Herschel iQ R1 Receiver (Gen 3 model) is specifically designed to control Herschel Infrared heaters.The R1 will operate with the T1 Thermostat or directly with the iQ Hub. The R1 Receiver must be wired to the mains electricity supply and also to the Herschel heater(s).

Option 1 – with the T1 Thermostat

When using with the T1 Thermostat, the R1 pairs wirelessly to the thermostat which then sends commands to the R1 to either turn the heater(s) on or off. Additional R1s can be added to the same T1 Thermostat. Optional remote control of the T1 Thermostat, over the internet, is available (just add the iQ Hub and download the Herschel iQ App)*

Option 2 – with the iQ Hub

The R1 has an in-built internal temperature sensor and is capable of being controlled directly from the Herschel iQ App.  The R1 will sense the room temperature which will be displayed on the App. Must be used in conjunction with the Hub.

The R1 Receiver features a 1 hour Boost function and Herschel’s latest open-window detection technology.

Choose this option if you prefer to control by an App without any local devices.
