Responds to Status Requests
If you have an intelligent X10 controller or home automation software that can send & receive advanced X10 codes, such as pre-set dim and request status, this system will respond to those commands. Systems that can directly control this bi-directional thermostat and understand its signals include:
- Home Control Assistant
- Stargate/Stargate Lite
- RCS CommStar network Controllers
Depending on the controller, the X10 Bi-Directional HVAC System can provide it the current temperature. This information can be used to make decisions, run macros, or notify you that something is wrong.
- Controller Unit (connects to your HVAC system)
- Wall Display Unit/Thermostat (replaces your existing thermostat)
- Plug-In TW-523 Module
- RJ-11 Cable (connects the TW-523 to the Controller Unit)
- 120VAC to 12VDC Power Supply
Optional Expansion AccessoriesThe X10 Bi-Directional HVAC System works with almost all heating and cooling systems, including standard Gas/Electric, Heat Pump, Radiant, or Hydronic systems and with single or multi-stage systems. Compatible with single or separate transformer heating/cooling systems.
Wall Mount Remote Temp. Sensor This optional Wall Mount Remote Temperature Sensor replaces the internal temperature sensor in the Wall Display Unit with an external sensor. This allows you to control and monitor temperatures in locations away from the display unit. Also, if the present location of your thermostat does not accurately sense the home's average temperature, you can place this unit in the optimum location. Manufacturer's part number: RS15.
Pool/Spa Remote Temperature Sensor With the optional remote sensor you can even monitor temperatures in locations away from the RCS display unit. The sensor connects to the Wall Display Unit. Manufacturer's part number: RSP1/RSP2.
