Remote HVAC Control System (SALUS Controls)
- Networks & Connectivity - Gateways
In Europe, most homes are heated via hot water radiators, not HVAC systems as is popular in the United States. Current European heating systems suffer from two shortcomings; wiring the thermostat to the water source, and limited Wi-Fi range in older homes.
To overcome these issues, SALUS partnered with Arrayent to use the Arrayent Connect Platform to create a more usable and accommodating thermostat system. At the heart of the SALUS iT500 is the Arrayent Connect 868 MHz Wireless Protocol, which powers the wireless communications between gateway and thermostat. It is energy-efficient and operates through Wi-Fi at long-range, which enables SALUS to support wireless communications to the iT500 thermostat.
