5 Benefits of Remotely Accessible HVAC

Remotely Accessible HVAC

Install an HVAC system to cover all functions of heating, ventilation and air conditioning that will keep your employees comfy at your office. In fact, you don’t even have to wait a good half an hour after you enter your office to let your HVAC create an ambiance.

Now remote controlled HVAC systems can take care of that for you! Here’s how:

1. Wi-Fi Enabled HVAC Systems

You don’t need GPRS/GSM or any other cost carrying package to navigate your remotely accessible HVAC system. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection and a PC and you can control your HVAC from home before you have even stepped into your car to get to your office.

Your team will be comfortable in the office even if you end up arriving a little late.

2. User-Friendly Software Structure

A simple web browser can be used to navigate the portal that allows remote access to HVAC systems. These web pages have no application of Java applet. These also do not use ActiveX controls. Simple HTML pages are used that load pages quickly. You don’t have to worry about your system freezing on you because you logged in to control your HVAC system. It will function smoothly even when several tabs are open on your web browser.

3. IR Remote Control

You can control HVAC systems with an Infrared Remote Control. Get yourself an IR Remote. It is a small shield. It is capable of recording any infrared command from a remote control and sending it back to the internet. You can use any wireless interface for it like Bluetooth, 3G, Wi-Fi, and GPRS etc. You can use any platform between Arduino and Raspberry Pi. If you don’t have your laptop on you, simply make use either an android app or the IR Remote Control in your iPhone.

4. Wi-Fi Enabled Thermostat

You must have a Wi-Fi enable thermostat to control your HVAC system. Thermostats come in various forms. There are programmable, Non-programmable and Wi-Fi enabled thermostats. You can choose which suits your needs more. However, you should pick one that keeps you connected to your heating and cooling system even when you are away from your office. You can use a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat to turn your HVAC on or off depending on your office temperature needs.

5. Energy Saving Sensi Thermostat

Another type of thermostat that will come in handy to you is a sensi thermostat with geofencing functions. It works based on your location. When you reach 3 miles away from your office, your thermostat will lower 3 degrees if you were in the heating mode when you left it and increase 3 degrees if you were in the cooling mode when you left it. In this way, you will save a lot of energy once you leave your workplace for a while. When you return and are 3 miles away from your office, the thermostat will automatically reset to your original setting.
