Distech Controls Introduces Integrated Room Control Solution
Delivers highest return on energy efficient systems while ensuring personalized comfort
[Brossard, QC, January 9, 2014] - Distech Controls is pleased to announce that its Integrated Room Control (IRC) Solution for the control of HVAC room terminal equipment (BACnet® or LONWORKS®), Lighting, and Shades is now available. This easy to configure, modular solution achieves the highest level of comfort for occupants while increasing operating cost savings for local or room applications, such as offices, patient rooms, dorms, military housing, and more.
“The Integrated Room Control Solution is the most optimal and cost-efficient way of implementing energy efficiency while ensuring comfort for room occupants,” said Etienne Veilleux, President and CEO. “Distech Controls is proud to empower its global network of Authorized Partners with this unique solution by adding lighting and shade control modules to our already strong HVAC offering. Furthermore, we are proud to offer the highest return on energy efficient systems to our Customers and End Users worldwide”.
The Integrated Room Control Solution, a first in North America, allows occupants to adjust temperature, lighting and shade settings in the room to achieve a level of personalized comfort. In addition, the automation of lighting and shade levels based on indoor and outdoor light levels allows occupants to benefit from increased natural light.
What makes this solution of synergies unique is that it can easily be adjusted by users. The Integrated Room Control Solution can be handled with the Allure EC-Smart-Vue, communicating sensor, the EC-Remote wireless personal remote control, as well as the free "Smart-Sense Room Control" mobile App. This variety of room devices and convenience of a mobile App addresses the requirements of LEED® Credit 6.2: Controllability of Systems—Thermal Comfort.
Using the Integrated Room Control
Solution also makes financial sense. Key cost savings can easily be
achieved, with occupancy-based control strategies, daylight harvesting
based on light level sensing and natural light optimization as well as
the increased window insulation from shade modules. The energy savings
are such that a study by the Hannover University of Applied Sciences
and Arts in Germany Energy demonstrates savings in excess of 30% on
HVAC and up to 60% on lighting. Finally, this synergy of solutions
provides additional operational cost savings, from installation to
commissioning and maintenance, delivering the lowest total installed
In order to better understand the advantages offered by the IRC Solution, Distech Controls allows users to build their own solution via an online interactive planner. This will help in selecting the right products required to build an Integrated Room Control Solution, making room control not only practical but accessible.
