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.

Add Wireless Z-Wave Remote Control to an Exiting Switch and Monitor Energy Consumption

Aeotec DSC19xxx-ZWUS Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Illuminator Dimmer Switch G2, 600 Watt
It has long been thought that a house becomes a home when we make it reflect who we are, when we personalize it, when we fill it with objects we treasure. And all of that remains true, but it no longer needs to be just the objects we put in our home that personalizes it. Like the music that gently fills the background of your favorite restaurant, Aeotec’s Micro Switches create the perfect ambiance for your home, and then some. They also give you the perfect control and the perfect, intelligent automation.

The Aeotec Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Illuminator Dimmer Switch G2 is a low-cost Z-Wave dimmer module specifically used to enable Z-Wave command and control (on/off/dim) for existing in-wall switches. It can also report immediate wattage consumption or kWh energy usage over a period of time. The wireless module is powered from the mains supply and is a three-wire design which requires a neutral connection. In the event of power failure, non-volatile memory retains all programmed information relating to the unit’s operating status. It also is a repeater in the Z-Wave network. Acting as a bridge for communication, it will forward Z-Wave command messages to their destinations if the originating controller is out of range from the destination node. By taking advantage of the Z-Wave mesh network, commands can be routed to their destination via intermediary ‘listening’ Z-Wave products. Products that are Z-Wave certified can be used and communicate with other Z-Wave certified devices.
