BLUE HILL, Maine — PowerWise has announced the availability of new smartphone and web controls for mini-split heat pump systems. Mini-split users can now control temperature settings online, as part of an energy management dashboard. Users can set up to eight heating and cooling periods. Commercial customers can apply thermostat templates to multiple locations.

PowerWise supports control of Mitsubishi (including Mr. Slim), Fujitsu, Daikin, Panasonic, LG, and Samsung mini-split heat pumps.

“Because these mini-split heat pumps are so popular, we expanded support of HVAC controls to these systems,” said Carsten Steenberg, CEO of PowerWise. “People can not only control temperature with their smartphones, they can also see the costs and full impact, especially when combined with our room sensors.”

When combined with PowerWise air quality sensors, the control system can show the temperature, humidity, CO2, and VOC levels within the home or business. Both iPhone and Android apps are available.
