tiko is an eco-citizen solution that allows you to save up to 25% of heating energy with existing electric radiators – even the oldest ones – while increasing the comfort of occupants.

These are substantial savings in CO2 and in € for the 9.2 million households that heat with electricity, for which heating represents 66% of their energy expenses.

Our modules are installed on each radiator by a certified installer and allow instantaneous

– their programming room by room, in the quarter of an hour, according to the habits of the customer

– their remote control thanks to the free tiko app

– the follow-up of their consumption

The particularity of tiko is to use the connected radiators to participate in the stabilization of the French electrical network via the peak shaving mechanism, without any impact on the comfort of the inhabitants. This participation, and our remuneration for the valuation of these operations, helps us to finance both the equipment and the installation – which allows us to offer our cutting-edge technology at extremely attractive prices.
