Airzone Control announced a new API integration with Savant that allows Airzone’s HVAC control and zoning solutions to work inside the Savant Smart Home and Smart Power ecosystems.

Airzone delivers intelligent HVAC control for mini-split, multi-split Inverter/VRF and ductless units. It does this by leveraging a library of manufacturer protocols to control fan speed and refrigerant flow. Airzone control products can reduce HVAC energy consumption by up to 60 percent, while simultaneously maintaining more consistent temperature set points in occupied spaces.

The Savant driver works with both the Airzone Aidoo Pro for single-unit systems, and the Webserver Hub for zoned systems. Integrators can download the Aidoo driver directly from the Savant Application Manager. Once installed and configured on system thermostats, the API allows Airzone controllers to connect to Savant sensors and control devices without the need for custom coding or wiring.

The driver includes mode switching and read/write functionality for set point and ambient temperature. Integrators can create set point schedules based on a client’s routine, or associate specific temperature set points with Savant Smart Home scenes. They can also customize Savant Power System energy modes to automatically adjust HVAC system usage when the user is on vacation, or in response to events like a grid outage.

Scenes and energy modes can be triggered automatically; users can also select their preferred scene or energy mode in the Savant App, with a single tap on a Savant control interface, or via Alexa or Google Home voice command. The Savant App also offers circuit-level insight into home technology energy consumption, allowing users to see the concrete impact of their investment in sustainable technology.
