Monitor Temperatures in each room of your home

More control, and efficiency with the air conditioning.

Is it possible to know the temperature of each room in your home from a single thermometer in 1 place? Not really, because every room is likely going to be different with distinct things going on. They can be different sizes, some will have large windows that receive a lot of warm sunlight or exposed to cool winter air depending on the time of year, a large door could be left open, or even things like cooking could mean that different rooms are at different temperatures. This is important, not just during the day but at night you probably want to be sure the kids are not too hot in summer or freezing in winter when they sleep.

Many ducted air conditioning systems have 1 temperature sensor in 1 place. The 1 sensor can’t monitor the whole house. If it is in an area where the temperature is at your chosen set point, rooms that aren’t might not receive any more conditioned air or might receive more than they need if the sensor is in an area that is suddenly warm or cold and the air conditioning unit responds. This can create problems with comfort as well as energy efficiency.

To have a temperature monitor in each room that you can keep an eye on in one place or on your phone with an app might seem difficult or require a lot of work or wiring, but there is now a simple answer…

Wireless Temperature Sensors

If you have found your house has rooms that are often warmer or colder than others, you can add a wireless temperature sensor to each air conditioning zone of your home. These are offered as an optional upgrade with the AirTouch 4 smart controller. Zoning is the process of dividing up your house into zones to regulate the conditioned air flow for them individually. It is possible to take this process further by placing a wireless Individual Temperature Control sensor in each zone with AirTouch 4.

When you add wireless temperature sensors to each zone/room that you have setup, you can monitor their temperatures individually on the console on the wall or on your phone. The screen updates and shows a temperature control next to the zone as oppose to an air volume. This is also reflected on the phone app.

With the phone app and ITC technology you can know the temperature of each room at home or away and choose to control the home climate from anywhere.

Also, because AirTouch can adjust the volume of air into each zone, you can use it to specify a different temperature set point for them around your house. They provide the AirTouch system with feedback about the temperatures, so if the family room was a single zone for example and is warming up, AirTouch can send more cool air to it to maintain temperature.

The AirTouch 4 ITC sensors give you a status light activated with a single press to know if the AC is on or off in that zone, as well as an additional wireless switch for the conditioned air in that zone. Battery powered (CR2450), they are mounted on the wall and paired with your system.

Overall, this technology can help prevent unwanted warm or cold spots in your house and give you more information, and control.
