SmartHeater is a unique aluminum radiator heater, which warms the room gently by convection and radiant heat. By using heat conductive aluminum, SmartHeater warms up approximately five times faster than conventional oil-heaters. Generating power is controlled on seven levels, so it can precisely target the desired temperature at minimum energy. Two significantly unique modes, auto-learning mode and royal-sleep mode are provided along with the highest level of safety performance. SmartHeater is also compatible with Wi-Fi network, enabling the user to monitor and turn the power OFF even from outside the house.

The design of the radiator is simple and unobtrusive, thought through to the very last detail – the opposite of a technically overloaded product. And in an unprecedented manner, it even integrates itself perfectly into Japanese homes. The functionality is equally convincing – the radiator is extremely efficient due to the heat conducting aluminium, it heats up quickly and is also quickly turned off.
