Why do I need an extension kit?

New installation - I’ve got a Drayton LP111 controller in the center of the house and an Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler in the garage. These are connected by wire.

Can I use the Smart Thermostat instead of the Drayton controller? Why do I also need the extension kit? The thermostat and the controller will sit side by side. Primary issue at the moment is that I can’t finish the installation and get the recommendations as the installation wizard won’t let me.

What are my options? Thanks.

    Hello funkensteinberg,

    The Extension Kit has two functions, it can be used as a dual relay (for adding hot water control) and at the same time is the wireless receiver for a wireless setup of our Smart Thermostat.

    If the location of the Drayton LP111 is a good place to measure the temperatures (so it's not inside a cupboard or something like that), then you may not need an Extension Kit and it could be replaced with the Smart Thermostat directly.
