    I sampled across Wiser Drayton Control by Schneider Electric on Amazon.

    "Drayton is one of the leading brands in the UK domestic heating market. Manufactured in Plymouth, Drayton products are made in the UK, for the UK and have a reputation for quality, reliability and technical excellence. These attributes have been instrumental in ensuring that Drayton has continued to lead the field within the UK heating market."

    They use the same Wiser logo... question is - does it integrate with c-bus? oh, and if so, how?

    all the best

    Schneider uses the "Wiser" name for all sorts of things which makes it very confusing. This has nothing to do with Cbus.

    oh, that's a shame. Seems crazy that they would have building automation products with the same name but they don't talk to each other... and even share the logo!!! madness.

    first post should have said "stubbled across" ...

    Yes... the Wiser we are all familiar with was the original... and Schneider loved the name so much they decided to use it everywhere :)

    The situation is that "Wiser" is now a range name that is being used for SE devices aimed at the Residential market segment. Hence the SHAC is branded as "Wiser for C-Bus".

    Similarly, devices that are targeted at the Commercial market are now being branded "EcoStruxure".
