Google Nest Learning Thermostat V3
The Google Nest thermostat is one of the better known smart thermostats on the market. Adding ‘learn’ means that over time it knows your preferences and can create the program that best fits your situation. You get to know about the thermostat and control all sorts of things through the Nest app. Of course, you can also connect other Nest devices to it and operate it via your smartphone.

Heat Fan Solo 4
In a normal radiator, cold air is heated and released as hot air at the top. The warm air then rises, but is not evenly distributed throughout the cold area. The Heat Fan is a solution to this problem, allowing hot air to be blown into the room, thus heating the room faster. You place the fans on the radiator and connect them to the mains electricity. The Heat Fan makes almost no noise.
