Airzone, a provider of HVAC control solutions, announces a new integration with Lutron. This integration enables “precise temperature control and category-leading HVAC energy efficiency via Lutron’s Homeworks home automation system.”

Airzone specializes in smart HVAC system control. Over the past 25 years, Airzone has built an “exclusive library of certified protocols for leading Inverter, ductless, mini-split, multi-split, and VRF manufacturers.” Its products enable two-way control of modern HVAC systems, enabling temperature set point precision — as well as system energy savings. Lutron luxury integrators can now offer their Homeworks customers these features via an integration using QSX processors.

“We are proud to work with Lutron as fellow pioneers in home automation,” said Antonio Mediato, CEO of Airzone. “We share a commitment to providing users with the ultimate in comfort and control, while also supporting efficiency.”

Historically, integration between the HVAC sector and automation systems has lagged due to widespread compatibility issues. With this integration, the companies say strides are being made to alter that narrative. This new integration with Airzone will allow Lutron customers to precisely control an Inverter / VRF HVAC system from any available trigger in the Lutron system including keypad buttons, schedules, Palladiom thermostats and the Lutron App.

“Lutron strives to deliver an elevated experience for our homeowners through elegant, precise control of the most critical environmental aspects of a residence, including lighting and temperature,” says Ben Bard, vice president at Lutron. “Integrating with Airzone unifies control of lighting and temperature – the two most important systems for comfort in any environment -and offers the potential for substantial energy savings.”

To control a single-zone unit, Airzone integrates with the Lutron Palladiom Thermostat via the Aidoo Pro. This device enables two-way communication between the Inverter / VRF unit and the Lutron thermostat, controlling:

  • Temperature set point
  • Operation mode
  • Fan speed
  • Unit on/off

For multi-zone applications, the integration takes place between the Airzone webserver HUB and the Homeworks QSX Processor, enabling features such as:

  • Centralized configuration and control of zone parameters
  • Control of up to 32 separate Airzone HVAC control systems
  • Seamless control of combined radiant and air heating / cooling stages
  • Remote error and warning detection of the HVAC unit

The Airzone solution is now available in the latest Lutron Designer Software.
