Intelligent building solutions specialist Distech Controls says it is "taking the standard thermostat to the next level" with the launch of its ECLYPSE Connected Thermostat.
The company says the intelligent, intuitive thermostat "delivers a best-in-class occupant experience," featuring a touchscreen interface, multiple connectivity options including wired IP and Wi-Fi technology for system communications, and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) support for mobile connectivity.
According to the manufacturer, the ECLYPSE Connected Thermostat is designed to help building owners elevate the value of their commercial facilities. The thermostat features an easy-to-use and elegant interface with a glass touchscreen and LCD display. It is compatible with Distech Controls' free my PERSONIFY mobile app, which provides flexibility and functionality via its modern user interface.
The company says the app's Bluetooth technology function makes it just as easy to connect and operate as any household consumer Bluetooth device. The thermostat also allows building owners to create their own personalized and branded mobile app to answer the specific needs of the building and its occupants using Distech Controls’ open developer tools.
Distech says the ECLYPSE Connected Thermostat enables unique user experiences with a single intuitive interface to adjust and optimize a building's temperature, fan speed, HVAC mode, and lighting/sunblind position via BACnet – all from a single device. A weather function allows users to monitor outside conditions and adjust the indoor building temperature accordingly.
The ECLYPSE Connected Thermostat is aimed at both new build and existing buildings, including schools, hotels and commercial and high-rise residential sites, and is based on open systems technology. The range of ECY-stat models available provide greater flexibility, allowing control of a variety of applications including fan coil units, heat pumps or zone control applications. This flexibility can be expanded to other applications depending on building requirements, says Distech.
“The launch of ECLYPSE Connected Thermostat will allow us to reach new vertical markets and expand our technology into new environments,” contends Kevin Ridder, product manager at Distech Controls. “Ideal for both new construction and existing buildings, this latest offering delivers tangible benefits for building owners, enhancing the occupant experience and facilitating intelligent building design.”
