I have just had installed a new oil boiler to replace my 25 year old non-condensing oil boiler that was proving more and more unreliable. I chose the Firebird Envirogreen Kitchen C26 boiler. Now I would like to make the control system as efficient as possible using OpenHAB or similar open source software. Does anyone know whether the Firebird boiler can be controlled remotely, e.g. can I control the “switch on” temperature, the “switch off” temperature or anything else that may need to be changed to get the boiler operating in the most efficient mode under all conditions? The boiler cannot modulate (as far as I am aware) so it may only be these two temperatures that need to be changed. If the boiler can be controlled, what communications medium and what protocol is used? Is this documented anywhere?
Many thanks - Rowan
