Reduce Your Energy Bill with Minimal Effort

Intuitous ECC-HS Home Energy Controller

The Home Energy Controller from Intuitous allows for a home security panel to communicate directly with a home HVAC system to seize every opportunity available to save energy. It’s perfect for busy families with unpredictable schedules because this Home Energy Controller will eliminate the need to program a daily or weekly schedule into a thermostat. Because it is connected to both the security panel and HVAC system it will automatically override the thermostat to conserve energy when the security panel is armed. When the “away” mode on a security system is activated the smart controller knows that the house is vacant and when the “stay” mode is activated it knows you’re home for the evening and going to bed. It will then automatically override the thermostat to enter into a managed setback mode to save energy. Once the resident is home and has adjusted the security panel accordingly the Home Energy Controller will return control of the heating and cooling back to the thermostat for normal use. The Home Energy Controller for security systems is 100% automatic and once it is installed the residents will forget it’s even there, that is until they start noticing the energy bill savings!

Plexidor PDE DOOR LG BR Electronic RFID Pet Door, Door Mount, Large Breed Dogs, Bronze

The Plexidor Electronic RFID Pet Door “reads” the key code on the RFID key (2 included) and opens only for your pet. When the key code is read, the panel unlocks and slides up like a mini garage door. The thick aluminum frames won’t bend and has a low profile of just 1 5/8″ in thickness, and the door is a tough, shatter-resistant panel. Because there are no air gaps, you don’t have to worry about the cool air from your air conditioner or warm air from your heater escaping. Total control up and down – no pinched tails on your pets, and no pinched fingers for the kids – the door panel will not close when there is something obstructing it and it will not free fall with power failure. The interior mounted motor will not freeze up in cold, so weather is not a factor. The Electronic RFID Pet Door won’t interfere with home security systems and it plugs into any standard household outlet or it can be hardwired.

This pet door is designed for use with Large Breed Dogs up to 125 pounds:
  • German Shepherds, Labradors, Collies, Setters, Dobermans, Dalmatians, Boxers, Pointers, & Golden Retrievers

RFID Collar Key Features:
  • Waterproof, Rugged, Battery Free, Shock Proof, Secure, Works with Underground Fencing, 1000s of Key Codes
  • Two RFID Collar Keys are included, additional keys are sold separately Read more
