SAVANT® Introduces Climate Control System

SmartClimate 8-zone thermostat processing unit is an integrated HVAC solution in a sleek, compact form factor

Hyannis, MA. September 25, 2013 - Savant Systems, LLC has introduced the SmartClimate series of climate control processors, delivering integrated or independent control of up to 8 zones of wired thermostats and sensors with extreme configuration flexibility. The first entry in the SmartClimate lineup, the CLI-8000 is typically wall-mounted in utility rooms for ease of access and maintenance and its compact form factor reduces the amount of space typically occupied by a bank of wall-mounted HVAC thermostat processors, thus lessening the challenges associated with wire management for integrators. The SmartClimate CLI-8000 is offered with an optional single-gang thermostat display and a family of temperature and humidity sensors to complete the system. The CLI-8000 will be available from Savant beginning Q4, 2013.

Savant's bold looking single-gang Circa Style thermostat display is simply installed and offers easy access to climate settings. The Circa thermostat displays are offered as part of the SmartClimate system and feature a color display that provides a clear view of current temperature, set-point, system mode, fan mode, system status and setup functions.

The Savant SmartClimate CLI-8000 simplifies the integration of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. Builders and integrators can install a SmartClimate system as an independent solution, controlling up to 8 heating and cooling zones. Used in conjunction with a Savant host, the CLI-8000 becomes scalable, enabling integrators to connect multiple units for increased zone capacity. Additionally, the CLI-8000 can be connected to a Savant automation system, delivering a vast array of advanced features all seamlessly controlled from a variety of Savant user interfaces such as the Apple® iPad®. Integrating the CLI-8000 into a Savant control system provides users with a fully automated climate control system in addition to the luxury, convenience and security of connected home functionality such as lighting, motorized blinds, security systems, music and video, surveillance cameras, sprinklers and more. "Our climate control products now give both residential and commercial integrators a versatile and sophisticated HVAC solution within Savant's family of control and automation products," stated Jim Carroll, Executive Vice President Corporate Strategy & Business Development at Savant. "The SmartClimate products represent Savant's commitment to bring superior engineering and intuitive functionality to a broad range of residential and commercial sub-systems," Carroll added.

Using the Climate Scheduler within Savant's award-winning TrueControl™ app enables users to establish automated climate set-points throughout the zones of a home or commercial facility. The app also provides an instantaneous and historical view of the temperature, humidity, set-points and other useful information. Users can maintain remote access to control their home's temperature while away using the TrueControl app on their portable device.
