I emailed Eheim about the option in my controller's "Add Device section", to add an EHEIM thermocontrol +.

Eheim have stated that there will be a new wifi heater in the new year:

I don’t even get how they work? You can adjust them from a phone app? is my guess.

My thoughts exactly. Its designed to do one thing, why complicate it by bringing apps and wifi into it :D

It’s unnecessary but it’ll increase the price. Lovely.

That's the idea, like LED lights there's nothing really special about them so they have to do something to justify the high price.

If it can send an alert to your phone if the heater malfunctions or something, that could be handy, laying in bed and a heater goes, alarm sounds etc

Lo1 likes technology and likes Eheim products. I also like Eheim products.
The Eheim Wi-Fi heater is another technology.
It can quote:
Eheim wrote:Precise temperature adjustment from 20 to 32 °C
No readjustment necessary
Control accuracy ± 0.5 °C
The heat is kept constant
Control lamp indicates the heating function (red: heating up; green: temperature reached)
Fully submersible (waterproof)
With dry-running protection (Thermo Safety Control)
The Eheim ThermoControl e150 costs less than £30, so not overly expensive.
Lo1 already has the Eheim professional 5e 450 external filter with integrated Wi-Fi function and wireless control via smartphone, so adding a Wi-Fi heater kindof makes sense, all controlled from a smartphone.

I prefer my Eheim (non Wi-Fi) Pro external filters and my Hydor external (in-line) heaters but each to their own. ;]

All the best
6 foot (550L) - Rio Negro themed
9 x juvenile Biotodoma Cupido, 50 x Hemigrammus bleheri, 40 x Paracheirodon axelrodi, 15 x Corydoras duplicareus, 15 x Corydoras burgessi, 2 x Hypancistrus inspector L102

2 foot (120L) - Breeding tank (temporary stocked with 15 x Hemigrammus ocellifer)
re-vamped, re-planted and getting ready
