July 28, 2010, Montreal, Quebec, Canada – Distech Controls announced the release of the Allure EC-Smart-Vue Series configurable communicating sensors featuring a backlit LCD display and user-friendly, icon-driven menu. Through its fully customizable, user-friendly interface, occupants can easily adjust environmental settings according to their preference. For example, users can view the space temperature, adjust the setpoint, apply occupancy overrides, and more.
Designed to satisfy architects, interior designers, and building occupants alike, the Allure Series of room devices offers a broad array of models suitable for a wide range of environments and applications. The line ranges from wired and wireless, battery-less discrete sensors, to intelligent communicating sensors and communicating thermostats.
Unique in the market, EC-Smart-Vue’s ECO-Vue feature provides building occupants with instant feedback on the level of energy efficiency their chosen comfort setting is achieving. The more ECO-Vue leaves appear in the LCD display, the more energy efficiency is being achieved, while less leaves encourages the occupant to choose a new setpoint that reduces energy use.
"With its unmatched ability to engage building occupants, the EC-Smart-Vue is the latest example of our company's ability to deliver innovative products that make commercial buildings greener and more energy efficient," comments Caroline Cadieux, Director of Marketing & Communications, Distech Controls. "The ECO-Vue feature, in particular, is valuable in providing users with instant feedback on how their decisions impact the environment. Industry studies have shown that this can increase a building’s energy efficiency by as much as 15%.”
