  • Patent number: 9696052
    Abstract: A controller is provided for HVAC equipment. The controller receives a set of internal temperature values, and a set of external temperature values, the set of external temperature values representing at least one non-current temperature. The controller determines a predictive internal temperature value from the set of internal temperature values and a predictive external temperature value from the set of external temperature values. The controller receives an internal humidity value representing humidity within the premise, the controller further controls the HVAC equipment to modify the humidity within the premise when the received internal humidity value is different from a humidity set point; and the humidity set point is regulated by a humidity limit value, the humidity limit value being where condensation forms, the humidity limit value being calculated using the predictive internal temperature value and the predictive external temperature value.

  • Publication number: 20130238140
    Abstract: A method is provided for creating or updating a provisioning record for a subscriber on an energy management network. The method comprises installing a controller for HVAC equipment on a premise, the controller being adapted to communicate with an energy metering device already installed on the premise over a personal area network. The controller temporarily displays at least one controller identifier, the at least one controller identifier being associated with the premise. The at least one controller identifier is recorded on a mobile device equipped with identifier-sensing equipment. The mobile device transfers data which includes the at least one controller identifier from the mobile device to an energy management server, which creates or updates the provisioning record for the subscriber on the energy management network.
