The Rio Arc is probably the most stylish to becoming on the market so far.

Currently, it is only available for those in the UK, however, a release in the USA is coming soon. Be sure to check out their website for any pre-orders.


4. Atomi Smart Tower Space Heater

3. Atomi Smart Tower Space HeaterThis little Atomi heater is a good alternative to the Dyson hot and cold if you are looking for a portable heater.

It has a much smaller price tag but a few fewer features that you may not need anyway.

One particular point they have covered well is safety.

With tower heaters, it is super important you have a safe unit as they can easily be knocked over.

The Atomi is ETL listed and has a number of other safety features.

A tip-over switch which will automatically turn the heater off if it tips over.

Overheat protection, which will turn the heater off if it gets too hot and cool-touch housing which means you won’t burn yourself if you touch the heater.

There are a couple of things that separates this unit from some others listed here and that is portability and oscillation.

You are easily able to move the heater from room to room as it is not fixed in any way.

The Atomi wifi heater also has a 90-degree oscillation feature which means you can spread the heat around the room.

The ability to easily move the unit and oscillate gives you a bit more control over your heating.

As far as compatibility goes the Atomi is available for IOS and Android smartphone with an app for each OS.

It is also able to be controlled via voice, so if you have Alexa or Google home, you are able to turn your heater on and off by voice.

Much like all the wifi heaters on here, the app, according to ratings, could still use a bit of work, as it has a 3-star rating.

The advanced functions of the heater are controlled via the app.

So scheduling preferred temperature and the likes.

However basic functions such as oscillation, modes, temperature, and timer can also be controlled via the unit itself, should you not be using the designated app.

5. Xiaomi Smartmi Electric Heater 

4. Xiaomi Smartmi Electric Heater The Xiaomi Smartmi is probably one of the most stylish smart heaters available.
This 220V smart heater also comes with a 3-year warranty which is fantastic for a space heater. Many others come with a 1-year warranty so it’s great the company backs the performance of the products with 3 years.
The heater has a touch screen for its controls and also offers 3 screen brightness settings.

Why is that important?

If you want to use the heater in your bedroom when you are sleeping, light pollution can be an issue with many space heaters.
Giving you the option to lower the brightness removes that problem.

The heater is also splash-proof and is apparently able to be used in the bathroom.
Personally, I wouldn’t put any electric devices in the bathroom near water, but if you are looking for a smart heater for yours, this is an option worth considering.
For those interested, it has an IPX4 water rating. Here is an interesting article on what that means.

What about safety features?

Well, it has the standard safety features you should expect from any space heater, with an overheat protection trigger, and a tip-over switch, which will turn the heater off if it is tilted more the 45 degrees.

Is the app good?

The short answer is it has the highest ratings of any of the wifi heaters listed here.
It uses the Mi Home Smart App which has a 4.0/5 rating in the play store.
Given that the functionality of the Wifi/app is high on the list of important features when purchasing a wifi heater, this makes the Xiaomi smart heater a top consideration.

Couple that with the features, design, and great feedback from purchasers, this is a wifi heater that is a must to consider.

7. RolliCool Portable Air Conditioner

6. RolliCool Portable Air ConditionerIf you are looking for more heavy-duty, yet a portable option, then the Alexa Enabled RolliCool Portable Air Conditioner is worth a look.

Not only will you get the benefit of a wifi-enabled space heater, but you will be able to use it to cool in summer as well as dehumidify if you so wish.

If that is not enough, this has another added benefit of being able to move easily between rooms (it has wheels), which is great for those who utilize a few different rooms in their house.

So the benefits of this machine are you get a multipurpose, heating, cooling dehumidifying, portable device that is easily moved around your rooms that can be controoled, via Alexa/voice control, the Rollo app as well of course, as on the machine itself.

Some things worth considering, however, are if you intend to use it during the summer to keep you cool, it will require a little maintenance (cleaning filters, etc) along with proper venting.

And like a number of Wifi space heaters, the Rollo app is, well, not the best according to users.

It has a rating of 1.9 stars at the time of writing on the Google app store and a number of issues customers that have had a negative experience have had revolves around the performance of the app.

It is a ceramic heater with upscale modern design and has 3 settings – fan, 750W and 1500W for your various heater needs.

9. Crane Infrared smart HEATER – Grey

Being a WiFi device means that there can be as many problems with the software as there might be with the hardware.

Both being equally as important.

There are a number of the apps that control the units, that are really just not up to scratch so make sure you do your research.

#7 Dyson Pure Cool Link Purifier
4/5


Dyson are well known for their quality products as well as their hefty price tag.

This particular unit is no different.

In fact, it really is a comprehensive unit with far more features than any other smart heater.

Quite the bang – but also quite the bucks.

So what do you get?

The reports are probably the most interesting and something none of the other smart heaters do to this level.

The HP04 will provide data on indoor air quality, particle matter, volatile organic compounds, oxidizing gases, indoor temperature, humidity, filter lifespan, and the wifi connection.

Quite the list.

But its not just that it does things most other smart heaters don’t but the things that are commonplace are often done better.

For example, you will get 10 heat settings, instead of your usual 3, the oscillation is almost 360° instead of barely 90°.

The HP04 also features a night mode which, if utilized, will only use the quieter settings, which will help you maintain your sleep as well as dim the LCD which can often be problematic on appliances in the bedroom.

It is also certified asthma and allergy friend, it has been awarded the Quietmark accreditation, it features an automatic mode, sleep timer, has no blades and is therefore easy to clean.

Best of all it works with Amazon Alexa along with Dyson’s propriety app software.

All in all, a pretty wifi space heater, it does, however, come with one big caveat.

You cannot change the heat temperature from the app.

As far as smart space heaters go, this is probably one of the best.

It is certainly not perfect but it is in the realm where smart heaters should aim to be.

FEATURES

• Alex Enabled
• Fan heater
• 10 heat settings
• Timer
• 2-year warranty
• Remote control

PROS
• Hepa air purifier
• Heat and cool options
• Real-time reports on indoor and outdoor air quality, as well as temperature, humidity, and filter life
• 350° oscillation
• Can create schedules
• Alexa enabled

CONS
• Can’t turn the heater on from the app “due to US Law”
• Some assembly required
• Small remote control
• Price

#8 Crane Infrared Smart Heater
2.5/5

crane wifi enabled space smart heaterAnother WiFi enabled heating option by Crane smart heater.

This unit is an Infrared heating device and a completely different style to the tower fan made by Crane.

It actually has pretty reasonable features.

It has an antifreeze setting to prevent your heater from getting too cold and therefore damaged.

If utilized, this will keep the room temperature above 45 F to prevent freezing.

The child lock setting, if utilized, will prevent any settings from being adjusted or used, including power and on or off

The Crane infrared heater also has a timer which allows you to set a time between one and 12 hours in which the heater will automatically turn off.

This is excellent for saving power.

A neat feature is the ability to adjust the LCD display.

Often displays can be bright, and cause a lot of issues for people trying to sleep in their rooms.

And last but not least it has a room temperature setting which allows you to set a temperature between 45 F and 85 F and the heater will try and maintain this temperature.

A word of advice though, make sure you read through the reviews as, unfortunately, the ratings are not overwhelmingly good.

Theoretically, this is not a bad heater. It has solid features.

BUT.

It appears the wifi has issues.

Which kind of defies the point right?

#9 Crane Smart Heater
3.3/5

crane wifi enabled tower heaterIn a limited playing field of Wifi smart heaters, the Crane Smart heater is a little different to all the others.

It is one of the only smart tower heaters on the market.

The heaters smart settings are controlled via Crane’s own proprietary app.

Crane Smart heater - app UIIt is a ceramic heater with an upscale, modern design and has 3 settings – fan, 750W and 1500W for your various heater needs.

Other features included with the unit are a touch screen and child lock.

The unique thing about this heater is it oscillates. Apart from the expensive Dyson, no other smart heater does this, so if that is a feature you are looking for, this is your choice.

For your safety, the heater also has overheat and tip-over protection which means if the heater overheats, or tips over, the heater will automatically turn itself off.

Unfortunately, the app seems to need a bit of work given the low ratings it has on the Play store.

FEATURES
• Ceramic heater

• Uses Crane’s proprietary app
• 700w, 1500w
• 3 heat settings
• Timer
• Child lock
• Oscillates
• 1-year warranty

PROS

• Small area footprint
• Reach customer service via the app

Turn a regular space heater into a smart heater with a smart plug…

..there actually happens to be a whole lot of choice when it comes to the smart plug option.

If you are searching for smart plugs to use for your space heater, there are many brands to choose from.

As well as checking reviews of the product itself we suggest checking the rating of the app in the app store as well.

Being a WiFi device means that there can be as many problems with the software as there might be with the hardware.

Both being equally as important.

There are a number of the apps that control the units, that are really just not up to scratch so make sure you do your research.

What are the pros and cons of a smart plug for a space heater?

The pros are that you can turn any space heater into a smart heater.

You will be able to control your heater from your phone and you will be able to create schedules on your phone.

This can be useful, especially if you have older model heaters that have no ability to create any kind of schedule.

You can turn your heaters on and off with s simple voice command.

Super convenient, especially if you want a warm room before you get home from work.

Just fire up Alexa and tell her to turn your heater on.

Done.

BUT

You will not be able to control the features of the heater.

You will be able to create a schedule based on the heater being on and heater being off.

There is no ability to set a thermostat or control the heat in any way.

So with that said, here are a couple of the top smart plugs available to turn your regular space heater into a smart space heater:

#1 Wemo Smart Plug
4/5


Turn any space heater into a WiFi enabled device with the Wemo Insight Smart Plug

Well kind of.

Although it is quite a nifty device it is limited in what you can do.

What you will be able to do is hook up any space heater or appliance and be able to schedule and control when the unit turns on and off.

This is great for turning your heater on before you come home or off if you have forgotten to turn your heater off.

Just plug and play and you are away laughing.

Unfortunately, what you won’t be able to do is control any of the features on your space heater from afar.

So temperature control, no speed control.

Just on and off.

If you don’t need that extra control then this might be a great device for you, however, if you need more flexibility and total control over your space heater, then it may not be the device for you.

FEATURES

• Alexa compatible
• Google Home compatible
• Apple Home Kit compatible

PROS

• Works with Alex, Google Home, & Apple Home kit
• Cheap
• Turn any heater into a smart heater
• Can create schedules

CONS

• Can’t control all the features of the heater used
• Less control than a smart heater
• App is not good
