HiberSense Announces Availability of Connected Climate Control Solution
HiberSense has officially announced the availability of their award-winning Connected Climate Control for Every Room solution. The Pittsburgh-based company said that the solution will, for now, only be made available through installing contractors and can be retrofit onto existing residential HVAC systems to provide an “affordable” room-by-room zoning solution for homeowners.
Unlike a traditional smart thermostat, HiberSense employs a system that integrates multiple HiberSensors throughout the home. Each sensor, they explain, gathers information such as occupancy, temperature, humidity, light, and optional indoor air quality. The system them analyzes that data and uses it to “leverage the thermal dynamics of the home” as well as the occupants’ habits and preferences.
Over time, the system will employ machine learning and predictive analytics to proactively heat and cool specific rooms before occupants arrive. And, if those predictive tendencies go off in err, the system will shut itself down in that particular room to prevent wasteful air conditioning and energy.
