A new residential gateway is available for the Enviracom™ network, the hvac industry’s new open communications standard for residential environmental control. Called the Telephone Access Module, the contractor-installed gateway is designed to enable secure, remote access to residential hvac systems via touch-tone telephone, standard phone line, and passcode, the company says. The module offers both dial-in and dial-out functions. Homeowners can call in to check the temperature, change the status of their hvac system, and perform other thermostat-related functions.
