Daikin Expands Daikin One Ecosystem to Include Daikin One Home Air Monitor
With the introduction of the Daikin One ecosystem, Daikin up-ended the status quo in the HVAC market, where HVAC manufacturers have been conservative in adopting Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies and, until recently, relegated leadership in the smart thermostat category to consumer electronics brands.
At the heart of the Daikin One ecosystem is the Daikin One+ Smart Thermostat, engineered to communicate seamlessly with all Daikin One ecosystem components. The Daikin One ecosystem includes the Daikin Fit system with communicating furnaces, evaporator coils and air handlers, the Daikin One Premium Air Cleaners, and the new Daikin One Home Air Monitor.
“The Daikin One ecosystem provides an unparalleled, integrated solution for temperature control and air quality. It allows people to visualize the air inside their home and reacts on cues to provide a premium indoor air environment. That’s ‘Air Intelligence,’” explained Kelly Hearnsberger, Vice President of Residential Product Marketing.
The new Daikin One Home Air Monitor device can be easily installed by a Daikin Comfort Pro contractor in the return duct, just before the Daikin One Premium Air Cleaner or other high efficiency filter. It uses the home’s Wi-Fi system to connect and communicate with the required Daikin One+ Smart Thermostat.
The Daikin One Home Air Monitor detects indoor air quality (IAQ) events and sends information to both the Daikin One+ Smart Thermostat and the optional Daikin One Home App where the IAQ levels of particles and chemicals are visualized. Then, the Daikin One+ Smart Thermostat provides the homeowner with the option to run the Daikin One clean feature which initiates the Daikin Fit filtration system to improve the indoor air quality.
