Bensalem, PA – January 20, 2022

H2O Degree, manufacturer of advanced two-way wireless submetering systems for tenant billing, leak/flood detection, utility conservation and building automation system integration in multi-family and commercial facilities, announces the T1000 Smart Thermostat. A direct replacement for many 24VAC thermostats, the wireless, networked T1000 enables remote visualization and local control of conventional (forced air) heating/cooling, heat pumps and hydronic heating. Easy to access and program, the T1000 Smart Thermostat encourages utility conservation by property managers and tenants alike in new construction and retrofit applications.

The T1000 collects a wide range of HVAC data by communicating wirelessly over H2O Degree’s secure 2.4 GHz network. Property managers can view temperature and set-points from the thermostats installed throughout their building and adjust them either individually or all at once using a user-friendly dashboard. They can program multiple heat/cool set-points, toggle between heat/cool modes and use conservation settings such as “vacant” mode.

Applications include:

  • Billing tenants based on run-time
  • Maintenance alerts based on algorithms looking at usage, outside and inside temperature, etc.
  • Building control — building managers can give tenants access to their individual thermostats on a web portal that can be viewed on their phones or computers. This control capability incentivizes residents to take charge of their own heating and air conditioning bills.

“Our new T1000 smart thermostat communicates wirelessly over the H2O Degree gateway and connects to our cloud-based server for easy online viewing,” said President of H2O Degree, Don Millstein. “By allowing property managers and tenants to adjust their HVAC usage in real time, this smart thermostat helps reduce utility costs in multi-family and commercial buildings.”

The H2O Degree T1000 Smart Thermostat is compact (4.5″H x 4.5″W x 1″ D) and simple to install.
