Remotely Control your Air Vents from your Z-Wave network with the EcoNet Z-Wave Controlled Air Vent. Gain complete energy management and savings on your energy bills! The Z-Wave Controlled Air Vent from Econet EV100-4X12WH allows automatic and intelligent control of room venting by regulating temperatures and even shutting off airflow to unoccupied rooms when combined with a Z-Wave occupancy sensor. The Z-Wave vents are retrofit replacements for standard home forced air vents and are compatible with most Z-Wave controllers and control software for efficient energy management and savings. Once enrolled into your existing Z-Wave network these smart vents are controllable with a smartphone, tablet, or computer from anywhere Internet access is available. The vent can be programmed to open or shut automatically based on occupancy, vacancy, schedules, or whole-house scenes; and includes push-buttons for manual operation as well.

When the Z-Wave vents are properly configured, energy expenditure can be reduced by 20% or more. Some configuration options include the combination of Z-Wave occupancy sensors, motion sensors, activity sensors, and temperature sensors. An example of an energy saving configuration limits forced airflow in unoccupied rooms on a schedule. The bedroom airflow automatically shuts off when the room is empty during the day and the living area of home would have full airflow. The reverse vent control schedule can be applied overnight when the bed room is occupied and the living room is unoccupied. The Z-Wave Air Vent is powered by two AAA batteries, sold separately.
