Airzone Announces NetX Thermostat Integration

Aidoo Pro integration with NetX thermostats brings pro-quality Inverter/VRF HVAC control to the luxury home market.
 
Miami, FL – October 11, 2023 – Airzone Control, provider of HVAC solutions for zoning, automation and smart control, today announces a new integration with Network Thermostat (NetX), a leading provider of smart thermostats for institutional, commercial and industrial markets. The integration between Airzone and NetX enables bi-directional communication between NetX thermostats and the Inverter/VRF HVAC units common in new construction and modern luxury homes.
Bridging the Divide Between HVAC and IT
NetX has a 30-year legacy of supplying on-site and remote HVAC control solutions focused on flexible control and efficiency. As they prepared to bring their powerful line of products to the luxury smart home market, however, they encountered the HVAC/IT gap. Communication protocol mismatch prevents two-way communication between Inverter/VRF units and third-party controllers such as smart thermostats. When paired with a smart device, the Inverter/VRF HVAC unit downgrades to single-speed operation, reducing unit efficiency and temperature set point precision.
Airzone’s Aidoo Pro controller provides a unique solution to this problem. Using an exclusive library of HVAC manufacturer protocols, Aidoo Pro acts as a translation layer between Inverter/VRF HVAC units and building automation, home automation and smart home devices, enabling full bi-directional communication. Using Aidoo Pro, an Inverter/VRF system with a NetX Thermostat can achieve energy savings of up to 60 percent.
“Luxury homeowners expect flawless performance from all of their systems,” says Jerry Drew, CEO of NetX. “Integration with Aidoo Pro will allow us to bring NetX solutions to this exacting clientele, no matter what style of HVAC unit they prefer.”
Reliable Connection, Versatile Control
Aidoo Pro integrates with NetX X Series thermostats via an ultra-reliable wired Modbus 485 integration. NetX is also compatible with a growing list of home automation drivers, including AMX, Crestron, Control4, ELAN, and RTI. Users and integration professionals can remotely monitor and manage the system via either the Airzone Cloud app or Network Thermostat CloudConnect™ platform.
“Homeowners deserve access to professional-grade solutions,” says Antonio Mediato, CEO of Airzone. “Our integration with NetX will make one of the most robust thermostat solutions on the market fully compatible with Inverter/VRF units, increasing choices for demanding luxury applications.”
