The multinational air conditioning manufacturing firm Daikin North America LLC has reportedly launched the Daikin One+™ smart thermostat to provide a premium HVAC experience to its customers. As per trusted sources, the new thermostat could act as a controller for a professional HVAC system and is an architecturally-inspired home air management controller.
Vice President of Technology Strategy for Daikin, Dennis Thoren was reportedly quoted stating that the company has specifically developed the Daikin One+ smart thermostat for three different types of customers including homeowners who are concerned about customizing settings as per their needs and maximizing efficiency, casual users who wish to change the temperature, and the professional contractors who install the product and have specialized technical requirements.
Sources familiar with the matter claim that the Daikin One+ smart thermostat has been developed in collaboration with Fred Bould of Bould Design, one of America’s foremost industrial product and consumer electronics designers. It is being said that Bould, the designer of several pathbreaking consumer devices, joined hands with Dubberly Design Office to create a technically superior user interface with the engineers of Daikin in Houston.
A sub-GHz radio collects data from remote sensors and communicates with other thermostats in the house to support independent zone control. The new thermostat also has a unified Wi-Fi radio which connects to the homeowner app through the internet.
Reportedly, the Daikin One+ smart thermostat is being touted as the very first smart thermostat that serves as a cloud-connected hub and controller for complex HVAC systems and provides full two-way communications service. The Daikin One ecosystem of indoor air quality modules, along with the company’s smart inverter HVAC products, offers an integrated and unparalleled solution for air quality and temperature control.
For the record, Daikin is headquartered in Japan and is regarded as one of the world’s largest HVAC manufacturer.
