Smart thermostats can control the heating and hot water like a traditional room thermostat or HW controller but have extra functionality. They allow remote control from an app on a mobile phone, tablet or computer where you may find it easier to control or use the extra features. Some are also "self learning" where they learn your patterns of life and the temperature outside to reduce the "On" time of the boiler to save you money. They are designed to keep your home at your comfortable temperature with reduced input from you. When used with the latest boilers they can do more than simply turn the boiler on or off, they can also reduce the output temperature supplying the radiators to save energy. If you are really into technology or home automation they can control different zones for example turn off areas of a house you are not using like bedrooms during the day to save money.
