PGA European Tour golfer Jack Senior has recently added an Alpha Connect Wi-Fi smart controller to his home to allow him easy management of his heating system around his competition and training schedule.

As a professional golfer, Jack’s routine is changeable and he is often away from home for several days, or longer, at a time. Our Alpha Connect wireless thermostat allows simple control of the heating directly from any iOS or Android device using the Alpha Connect app.

Jack was introduced to Alpha more than a year ago when one of our installers fitted an E-Tec combi boiler in his home. Since then, we have sponsored Jack and worked with him on charity fundraising, making donations for every birdie and eagle that Jack scores in a tournament as well as hosting a bespoke event which included a silent auction for a brand-new set of golf clubs.

Jack commented: “I’ve had my Alpha boiler for over a year now and I’m really pleased with it. About six months ago I had the Alpha Connect controller fitted following a recommendation from the team at Alpha. Without doubt it would be useful for every homeowner, but for me it is great as my days and hours away on the PGA European Tour are unpredictable. Being able to control the heating remotely from my mobile phone for when I return home from practice or tournaments is superb. It’s easy to use, saves time and money, and even my cat is a big fan.”

With the Alpha Connect, homeowners can customise their system’s settings based on their preferences and create a heating schedule with ease, whether at home or away.

We will continue to follow Jack’s season on our social media channels with regular updates, as well as more on this year’s nominated charity, Centrepoint.
