WirelessDevNet.com Press Release
EcoNet Controls of Clearwater Florida, a manufacturer of Home Automation Products, has completed the certification process for its series of wireless vents. The EV100 vent/register is officially Z-Wave certified and has been added to the growing list of Z-Wave devices recognized by the Z-Wave Alliance.
Bulogics, Inc. of Philadelphia, PA, an independent wireless automation engineering and design company, certified EcoNet’s EV100 Z-Wave Vent.
The EV100 series of Z-Vent’s are direct replacements for standard home forced air vents and are available in several sizes, and in two colors. These wireless controlled battery powered vents make energy management, and energy savings, simple and affordable. Any computer or smart phone can be used to control and manage the opening and closing of the vents, from anywhere internet access is available.
When used with a standard Z-Wave home automation system, the wireless Z-Vent allows direct control of heating or AC air flow to specific rooms in a home. When properly configured, the Z-Vent Energy Management System can reduce energy cost by 10% to 20%. Configuration options include the combination of occupancy schedules, activity sensors and temperature sensors. A simple example of an energy saving configuration would limit forced air flow in unoccupied rooms on a schedule. The bedroom airflow would automatically cut off when the room is empty during the day and the living area of home would have full air flow. The reverse vent control schedule would apply overnight when the bedrooms where occupied. As well as open and closed positions, the vents can be partially opened or closed with settings of 10% to 90% allowing even distribution air flow in problem areas of the home.
The Z-Vents are available for purchase direct from EcoNet or from distributors www.SMARTHOME.com and www.AARTech.ca
