The heart of the house: advanced and adaptive temperature control system, supporting all types of modular heating. Sensors learns about the house, and accumulate information to save energy and improve comfort. Pictures show base unit, temperature units, extender units, Y-box, and mobile phone interface. Design work has been carried out with user studies and interviews, resulting in easily placed and easy to install equipment. RGB leds in the pulsing heart indicate system status and activity. Temperature units rely on e-paper displays for low energy consumption and clear, crisp graphics.
