OSO Charge follows strict principles for data security and has end-to-end security using Microsoft Azure Sphere. The safety function against legionella is built into the basic logic of the device and cannot be overridden.
In the event of a loss of network connection, the device will run on the last profile it has received, until this expires. After that, it will change to a profile that is based on which hours of the day historically have had the highest electricity prices.

- Historical overview of consumption
Smart steering: Auto
"Auto" provides automatic optimization based on Nord Pool spot prices and machine learning that takes into account the consumption pattern in each household.
This optimization has 3 choices:
Low profile is suitable if you use a lot of hot water, but at the same time want to avoid the highest price peaks. Gives little risk of cold water, but lower savings.
This profile is suitable if you have normal consumption and a properly sized boiler for the household. Provides normal optimization and good savings.
For those who want to save as much as possible. Provides a higher risk of cold water and maximum savings.
Smart control: Third-party control
This choice gives the opportunity to control the heating of water via our open cloud-based API.
Follow the link in the app, or the link below to get to the description of the API and the possibility to test in Swagger.
Smart steering: Manual
If you have other needs than managing according to the electricity price, manual optimization can be a good solution. Here you simply select the hours you do not want the water heater to heat water. Minimum level and security features will override your choices.
With sleep mode, the water heater uses as little power as possible while you are away. At the same time, it will automatically return to normal mode one day before you return. Legionella mode will be active and heat water if you are away for an extended period.
OSO inCharge APP
OSO inCharge can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. This gives you the opportunity to control the heating of hot water at times of the day with the lowest electricity price. You also get insight into how much hot water you have available, and other functions such as "sleep mode".
OSO inCharge can only be used together with boilers that are equipped with an OSO Charge control unit.
