Case Study:

Edinburgh Backpackers Hostel


The radiators were very easy to install and the programming through the App was simple. As the building is an old building with concrete walls and floors it was necessary to upgrade the broadband connection. However it was also necessary to use extra Gateways as the connection between some of the radiators was weak due to the construction of the building. We are installing the Sun Ray Wi‐Fi radiators in a new building project with no connectivity issues.

We are very pleased with the Sun Ray Wi‐Fi Radiators as the controllability of the radiators through our mobile devices are excellent. More importantly our energy costs have reduced by over half which is very significant in this type of business. In conclusion the support from the ATC Technical team was invaluable in setting up the system so easily.

Client Requirements

The developer sought to install an electrical heating system in each apartment that would give the tenant / owner Wi‐Fi controllability.

The atc Sun Ray Wi Fi Radiators can provide the Wi‐Fi controllability through radio frequency (RF) technology. By using this type of technology the broadband strength will not be compromised and
will allow the tenant / owner to use their mobile devices to their full capability.


Product Criteria

  • Energy efficient heating for a shared living space
  • Easy for owner to programme and control through their mobile devices
  • Must provide a comfortable heat output for guests
  • Long life warranty

Product Evaluated & Chosen

The Client installed a number of atc Sun Ray Wi-Fi Electric Radiators  on trial for two reasons:

1. To review the energy costs in a specific area of the building over a set time.
2. To examine the ease of controllability of the system
