When working with energy management in an automated home, there are three primary areas that are tied together. First, HVAC system thermostats, window coverings and lighting control.
Automating HVAC Systems
Home automation programming ties into the controls of HVAC systems and provides an easy way to adjust heating and cooling. Programmers identify common heating and cooling cycles and manage the temperature to your comfort level while being conscious to energy being used.
Timing adjustment are programmed when the home is vacant to minimize needless use of energy. With the simple push of a button, the system override can be activated to adjust heating or cooling.
Window Coverings & Shades
coverings and shades affect the amount of natural heat that can be
captured or deflected.
