Legrand’s residential lighting control brand Vantage, has announced its partnership with CoolAutomation, a global developer of smart solutions for HVAC systems, specializing in VRF, split systems, and heat pumps.
With this partnership, CoolAutomation Edge devices can integrate any compatible HVAC system brands into the Vantage InFusion System easily and ensure communication between the two. This allows homeowners to fully control their HVAC from their preferred keypads, touchscreens, motion sensors, timers, etc., and it provides feedback of the actual temperature and setpoints on the Vantage Equinox touchscreens.
“As the residential controls industry continues to advance, the need for seamless HVAC integration becomes increasingly vital,” comments Richard Laliberty, product marketing manager, shading and Vantage Residential Controls, Legrand North America.
“This partnership showcases the innovative solutions for integrating and controlling multiple HVAC systems with a process that is simple, reliable, and hassle-free. It allows HVAC systems to finally communicate with external systems, offering integrators and homeowners unmatched management of an environment’s climate control.”
The Vantage and CoolAutomation partnership ensures seamless HVAC integration in today’s smart home. The CoolAutomation Edge device connects directly to HVAC systems via two-wire communication lines, and it communicates with Vantage over a TCP port connection on the LAN. There’s no need for external cloud-based connections — making the integration and communication reliable, secure, fast, and immune to internet connection issues.
Through the Vantage Equinox-41 and Equinox-73 touchscreens and the EQ app, CoolAutomation enables Vantage to fully control the Universal HVAC Interface Point with feedback from the actual temperature and setpoints. The pairing of Vantage and CoolAutomation has been tested and proven successful in projects throughout the world.
