  • Patent number: 8965585
    Abstract: A controller is provided for HVAC equipment. The controller has a processor, memory, and a RF module for a home automation network, and is operable to regulate operation of the HVAC equipment based upon a scheduling program stored in memory. The scheduling program includes at least one usage periods and at least one set point associated with each usage period. The controller is also operable to regulate operation of remote electrical devices over the home automation network; and to create a device scheduling program for the remote electrical devices, the device scheduling program including at least one device period and an operational state associated with each device period.

  • Publication number: 20140149270
    Abstract: A controller for a private unit in a multi-unit building is provided. The controller operates the private unit's HVAC equipment, and includes a processor, output display, memory, and a RF module for communication. The controller is operable to receive temperature or flow values of a fluid passing through the HVAC equipment. Using the received temperature values of the fluid passing through the HVAC equipment, the controller calculates a measured value of HVAC usage of the HVAC equipment. The measured value can be in units of energy or in dollars.

  • Publication number: 20130178985
    Abstract: A controller for operating HVAC equipment on a premise. The controller has a processor and memory, and is adapted to regulate operation of the HVAC equipment based upon a scheduling program stored in memory. The scheduling program includes usage periods and a set point associated with each usage period. The controller is adapted to receive time of use pricing; the controller is further adapted to present a graphical representation of the scheduling program period on a display, the graphical representation providing a scheduling grid and each usage period being shown as an area on the scheduling grid; the controller is operable to display a time of use pricing overlay over the graphical representation of the scheduling program; and the controller creates at least one new usage period based upon where the time of use pricing overlay bisects the at least one usage period being presented on the display.

  • Publication number: 20120005590
    Abstract: A system and method for an environment control and energy management. The system includes a server computer, at least one environment control device (ECD) and at least one mobile device communicatively coupled via a web-based communication system. A mobile device, also having a touch screen display, may be configured to display a replica screen of the touch screen user interface of the ECD, and allows modification of the control program accessed at the ECD.
