What is the difference between horizontal and vertical actuator valves apart from the display? I have a kit of vertical actuators but one of my valves is horizontal. Can I use a vertical unit on a horizontal valve.
The only difference is the display, you can attach a vertical Smart Radiator Thermostat to a horizontal valve.
This will simply result in the display being on it's side,
You are seriously telling me that there is not a way to invert the display via firmware or software update?
Yes, it's pretty silly. Would make sense to produce one TRV and have the display orientation set by a software switch
Yes, agreed, especially when the current Black Friday deals on Amazon UK mean that the vertical mount is £31.99 and the horizontal mount is £34.99!
Two single vertical mounts are cheaper than the 2 pack (£68.99) too.
I have just installed mine. I am quite sure that the TRVs were showing temperature in vertical mode before I've installed them to the radiators. it was done without any changes from my side. I assume TRVs have kind of sensors to detect the position in the space. All back to normal once I have initiated re-callibration for TRVs
I had three valves. For 2 of them the display was flippable in the software for the last one it was fixed. It seems there are two different versions of valves circulating? Is there a way to distinguish them without connecting them to the app?
