Our homes are now more than somewhere we eat and sleep. For many it is also a home office, movie theatre and gym. With these diverse uses and men and women being comfortable at different temperatures, people want to set a different temperature in different rooms of their homes. This can now be done affordably with individual zoned temperature control using sensors linked to your ducted reverse cycle air conditioner. Have each room on its own air conditioning zone to set a different temperature in each room.
Sensors also help keep the air conditioning running cost down as the air conditioner responds to the temperature reading at the sensor rather than reading it from the return air grille (which is normally located in the hall).
Air and Water Residential supply and install Airstream sensors (across the Perth metro area) which are compatible with the iZone 320 air conditioner and zone controller. It is most affordable and common to install the sensors when the air conditioning is installed.
The two types of sensor you can use for individual zoned temperature control:
- wireless sensors or
Both types of sensors and iZone are available in the Clipsal colours: black, white, silver or surfmist.
Wireless sensors are the cheapest option. The sensor is a stylish wall switch mounted in each zone to turn the zone on or off. The temperature is set at the iZone controller.
iSense is more than just a temperature sensor with a switch:
- It also allows you to set the desired temperature at the zone. No need to walk back to the iZone or log into the iZone app
- It has occupany sensors so you set the air conditioner to turn off after no motion has been detected for a pre-set time. Great for forgetful kids who don’t worry about air conditioning running costs.
Both wireless sensors and iSense are compatible with iSave, another great way to save your air conditioning running costs.
Price for Zoned Temperature Control
The retail price of wireless temperature control is $100 per sensor. If Air and Water Residential are also installing your air conditioning we offer a significant discount. It is more difficult to retrofit iSense as the units are individually wired back to the controller.
