NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - SilverPAC has introduced the new SilverSTAT 7 thermostat, designed to provide intelligent HVAC control coupled with a home energy display and Wi-Fi capability. According to the company, the product is a true smart energy thermostat that seeks to replace the standard household thermostat with an advanced home climate control system. It provides all the features of an intelligent seven-day programmable thermostat along with a Smart Energy In-Home Display (IHD) to help monitor utility usage and expenses for home energy management.
The device features a 7-inch touch screen display that illustrates the distribution of household energy down to individual appliances. With its IEEE 802.15.4 wireless interface, the SilverSTAT 7 will speak to the new smart meters that will have the ability to send information on real-time electricity and gas use in households directly to the utility companies. According to the company, this process eliminates the inconvenience of meter readings and the inefficiencies of controversial estimates. Reductions in peak energy demand are encouraged by providing customers with an instantaneous view of their ongoing energy usage and utility pricing on their networked in-home display. Potential savings can be achieved by turning off or rescheduling the use of appliances for a more cost efficient time.
