Stand-Alone Wi-Fi & Ethernet Communicating Thermostats from NetworkThermostat

NetworkThermostat’s 100% stand-alone energy management systems can operate without the need for Cloud services.  The free Net/X-IP Command Center software is capable of monitoring and controlling multiple thermostats in multiple locations from a single computer screen - remotely or from the local network.  NetworkThermostat Wi-Fi & Ethernet solutions can even integrate into an existing building automation system front end via the NT-BAS BACnet Gateway (The NT-BAS provides translation for BACnet MS/TP, BACnet/IP, Metasys N2 by JCI, Modbus RTU, and Modbus TCP). 

The family of UP32 energy management systems from NetworkThermostat saves time, energy and money. NetworkThermostat’s approach to energy management integrates all of the web pages, schedules, date and time settings, alerts, passwords, network settings and notification destinations directly into the thermostat. Add the thermostats to your existing Local Area Network using Wi-Fi (UP32xx-WIFI thermostat) and/or Ethernet (UP32xx-IP thermostat). End users and support personnel can connect simultaneously to the thermostats using their favorite PC, Mac, tablet, or smart phone. With NetworkThermostat, there is no compromise when needing to choose between direct connection or cloud connection. The UP32xx energy management system includes both methods. With Net/X’s exclusive DirectConnect™ method, users can make a direct connection to the thermostats from anywhere on site or remotely, with no need for a ‘cloud’. This is very popular for customers who have security requirements that prevent them from ‘going to the cloud’. Yet, only with NetworkThermostat do customers have the choice to use the Net/X CloudConnect™ platform. Additionally, both methods can be used simultaneously along with the Net/X-IP PC Command Center software for unparalleled connectivity options.

Flexibility is at the heart of every Net/X energy management system. All UP32 thermostats control conventional Gas/Electric (2H/2C) and Heat Pump (3H/2C) systems and the UP32Hx can also manage humidifiers/dehumidifiers and/or fresh air dampers. A lock-out feature limits temperature overrides to ±3oF or ±5oF and includes an adjustable override timer. Use the recirculation fan timer to optimize airflow within the conditioned environment. Integrated real time weather forecasts, based on local zip code, eliminate the need for outdoor sensors when setting heat pump balance points. Special algorithms even lessen energy usage peaks by minimizing the number of HVAC units that can turn on at the same time. The UP32xE Internet thermostats allow point and click control from almost any browser on any device from any Internet access point. An extended hold (vacation) is quickly created from an internet connection or the thermostat front panel by simply entering the day and time to return to normal scheduling. NetworkThermostat™’s exclusive and powerful Event Scheduling engine allows up to forty (40) calendar-based events for multiple holidays and vacations, and up to forty (40) special events for extended hours and special one-time events.   Both versions feature automatic changeover 3-Heat / 2-Cool thermostats with programmability from just a single schedule to seven days per week with up to four events per day. 

The UP32xx supports auxiliary inputs and sensors. Picture a miniature energy management system in a thermostat. Each UP32xx supports occupancy sensing, two (2) digital inputs for condensate switch, dirty filter or other fault condition, and an advanced remote sensor bus. The 3-wire remote sensor bus supports eleven (11) sensors with up to nineteen (19) alerts.

All thermostat platforms support up to 4 email and text message destinations for sending reminders and condition alerts to both customer and service personnel. Simply enter the desired alert email addresses and phone numbers in the embedded secure email client. Critical Alerts can be repeated until the alert condition is corrected and reset. These alerts include humidity levels, filter change reminders and a powerful Inefficient Equipment Run alert.
