The combination of IoT and HVAC systems sees a number of different wireless sensors, smart vents and other technologies come together and add intelligence that helps the two communicate. And, of course, this means that existing HVAC products can be retrofitted with IoT connectivity, by incorporating the right sensors and software.
When we think of ‘sensors’ we probably think of standalone devices, whose only purpose is to measure. The reality is, the IoT turns ‘things’ into sensors. Just as cars themselves could become the sensors on our smart motorways – capturing and communicating data around weather, road conditions and air quality – HVAC products could themselves become the sensors, springing into life as and when they’re required.
And that’s not all. The sensor data enables HVAC systems to correctly adjust themselves with the relevant information, while the sensors also provide a trail of status’ that are helpful in terms of maintenance and repairs – which can then send alerts once a serious problem has been detected.
For HVAC products, IoT functionality gives them the power to communicate, share data with each other – and process that data into operating smarter, more efficiently, driving optimal efficiency across a range of products. The idea of standalone products working in isolation looks set to be left firmly in the past.
