Control4 integration with VRF air-conditioning made easy
By CoolAutomation · February 22, 2014
If you're reading this article, you must know that Control4 is probably one of the best home-automation systems out there.
It provides the homeowner with the ability to centrally control and monitor almost every peripheral around the house without the need to abandon his couch.
Almost.. but not all
One major area that has not been properly addressed so far is the ability to centrally control and monitor the Air - Conditioning units especially VRF systems which are the latest generation in Air-Conditioning Systems.
VRF are efficient and great energy savers air conditioning systems from major brands like Daikin, Toshiba, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and others but also known for their complicated communication protocols, hence difficult to interface with, for control and monitoring via the centralized home automation controller.
So far – homeowners and integrators who wanted to connect those VRFs had no choice but to use the cumbersome and expensive control equipment as supplied by the HVAC companies and not able to have it controlled from the same home automation controller like the rest of the house.
Sounds like a problem you well know?
Well, we've got news for you!
