REHAU formed a strategic alliance with Climate Automation Systems (CAS) to market the new, web-enabled REHAU Smart Controls System. This comfort control system facilitates the integrated operation of residential building technologies, including radiant heating and cooling systems and solar and renewable energy sources.
"Our alliance with CAS will facilitate the next-generation operation of building technology solutions, providing homeowners with greater control over interior comfort," said Bill Johansen, director of construction services at the polymers and controls producer.
The alliance is intended to capitalize on the controls makers engineering capabilities with CAS's climate automation software expertise, particularly its ENV system.
“The ENV system is the first of its kind to bring intelligent climate control technologies, previously exclusive to large-scale commercial buildings, into the residential and mid-range commercial market,” said Ron Antinori, CEO and founder of CAS. “It balances all aspects of the home environment – from forced-air to radiant systems – and incorporates real-time weather data, a statistical database, and established rules that create a better home climate, while also reducing the impact on our earth’s environment.”
The new Smart Controls System will enable real-time onsite or remote management and optimization of HVAC systems, including hot water heaters, forced air, and radiant systems, from any web-enabled device. It will provide the ability to set comfort settings for each controlled zone while recording and reporting critical system information through an internet-accessible database. It is made to interface with weather service data and automatically adjust settings in anticipation of predicted weather changes. It will also provide immediate system troubleshooting data to the homeowner and designated service contractors.
