EcoNet EV100-4X12WH Z-Wave Controlled Air Vent, 4 Inches x 12 Inches - Whitearger

 

  • Wireless Z-Wave control via smartphones, tablets, and computers
  • Open and close the vent remotely from a Z-Wave controller
  • Set schedules and receive notifications via text and e-mail
  • Isolate or expand airflow through the home
  • Retrofit installation to quickly replace existing air vents

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.

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!
