From Department of Energy
Heating and cooling accounts for almost half of the average home’s utility costs.
We have the power to save money and energy in your own home. Saving energy reduces our nation’s demand for the resources needed to make energy, and improving your energy efficiency is like adding another clean energy source to our electric power grid. The result is reduced utility bills and money in your pocket. Improving your energy efficiency can also improve the comfort of your home and your quality of life.
What Is a Smart Thermostat
Regular thermostats let you adjust the temperature in your home—it’s just a control panel for your heating and air conditioning system. Programmable thermostats let you set the temperature and have the thermostat change it based on the time of day. What makes most smart thermostats so “smart” is that they learn from your behaviors, allow you to control the climate in your home remotely, show you energy consumption in real-time, and can even adjust themselves based on ambient conditions like humidity.
For example, you can voice anywhere in your house tell thermostat to shut off after you leave the house for work, and then spring back into action in just enough time to make the house nice and toasty (or cool and comfortable, depending on the season) by the time you to get home. Most smart thermostats show you how long it takes to make the change you’ve requested, so you can see how effective your climate control system really is, and it discourages people from turning a thermostat all the way down to try “cooling off the house faster” (which never works). Plus, you can manage many smart thermostats from your phone or a web-app. From the remote interface, you can always see how much you’re spending on heating or cooling costs, tweak the programming to you save money, and see the results immediately.
Tri Cascade THERMORING
The Smart A.I. Technology for Temperature Management
A new generation thermostat Tri Cascade A.I. Thermostat – THERMORING Model 10ze Smart Thermostat retains a traditional thermostat control experience design, taking the design of a retro volume knob for the most user-friendly control experience for everyone.
THERMORING adds in a related mobile app and ecosystem with Voice-Activated Assistant. It also has built-in machine learning algorithms, helping you to setup the best energy efficient temperature environment.
By ecosystem with Tri Cascade i.VA (Intelligent Voice Assistant) Grid-EYE and motion sensor, THERMORING will be aware of the AT HOME and AWAY status to determine the in home temperature setting for your best comfort. THERMORING is integrated with telecom’s NB IoT and 802.11n gateway, making THERMORING a self-Internet independent platform. THERMORING does not require connection to any router, the NB IoT connection will always stay with the system even when the property is vacant.
By using the Microsoft Azure Multi-Tenant Cloud and the new revolutionary Tri Cascade smart device setup architecture, THERMORING is able to provide a true B2B service to smart city, smart neighborhood development or hospitality management. The THERMORING is designed and integrated into the property, the home owner or building management can easily resell or rent out the property to others as a smart house or smart building without unplugging or re-installing the system.
Voice Control and IoT Synchronization
Other than supporting Amazon Alexa, THERMORING also synchronize with other Tri Cascade IoT devices such as Smart Wall Plug’s temperature sensor as the second source in house temperature and power consumption metering for your HVAC system. A special designed voice system throughout Tri Cascade Smart Light Switch and Dimmers. Tri Cascade Smart Lighting control system built-in with high quality microphone detection sensor allowing people to use voice to control their idea home temperature climate from anywhere in the house, no need any additional device for the voice operation.
There is another unique voice feature designed with THERMORING mobile app allowing you to utilizing the mobile phone to voice control the THERMORING while you are not around the house at any remote location, simply just bring up Tri Cascade mobile app and voice “heat on 75 degree”. THERMORINGwill turn on the heat to 75 degree, or shut off the HVAC system if you forgot to turn off the thermostat.
The Smart Temperature of THERMORING has pre-setup to 70 F economic energy conservation temperature follows with a default schedule to turn off at 8:30 am and back on at 5:30 pm from Monday to Friday, and It will stay for 70 F in Saturday and Sunday. You can adjust the temperature and schedule by mobile and web app for your own preferences, or disable the smart temperature system.
The machine learning algorithms will learn your idea house temperature and use behavior automatically adjust the setting, but if you disable the Smart Temperature system, the system will stop the learning algorithms.
Tri Cascade Smart Temperature system will take your mobile phone location to define if you are home or away from home. After the mobile app detects you are away from home, the system will shut down the HVAC system in 30 minutes, meantime send you an alert message that your home thermostat is shutting down.
With BRIGHT 700-10 fast 802.11N wireless capabilities, the device connects to the cloud and performs real time backup of its configuration, device information, and energy usage consumption data. All data of the household is safely backed up on the cloud. If the homeowner ever decides to move from one house to another, they can bring their data with them.
