Temperature control has never been more convenient. Now you can access and set tekmar radiant floor thermostats using third-party home automation systems with the tekmarNet® Gateway 482
Home automation offers the convenience to control your entire home through touch panels as well as through a mobile phone. This includes control over the indoor climate, audio, video, lighting, and security. Often custom homes with home automation systems also have radiant floor heating systems installed in order to provide the very best in indoor comfort.
Traditional thermostats designed for furnaces and forced air heating perform poorly when operating radiant floor heating systems. This is due to the long heat up times required to heat the floor. The result is that the floor temperature cycles up and down, thereby compromising indoor comfort.
tekmar thermostats are designed specifically for radiant floor heating systems. These thermostats use Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology to periodically pulse heat to the floor in order to maintain steady floor temperature. This results in the ultimate in indoor comfort.
From a home automation touch panel, each thermostat’s room temperature can be monitored and the heat, cool, fan, and mode (off, heat, cool, auto) settings can be adjusted. In addition, the home automation system can monitor the outdoor air temperature in real time.
The Gateway 482 is compatible with the following home automation systems:
