eCozy Turns Your Old Water Radiators Into Smart Heaters
Let’s Look At The Tech Specs
Until now.Ecozy, a Munich-based startup just reinvented the way we interact with the predominant heaters in our homes. The basic idea is very simple yet disruptive. The team around CEO Andre Kholodov and CTO Alexander Taraday has invented smart thermostat replacements for water radiator heater controls that can be controlled via a touch screen and apps.
The thermostats are based on the Texas Instruments MSP430 ultra-low power microcontroller. The touch panel control uses the Microchip AT42QT2100 and a 64×96 pixel OLED display. Connectivity builds on 2.4 GHz ZigBee with ZigBee Home Automation Profile 1.2. The actual valve on the heater is controlled with a noiseless stepper motor.
The heart of the central unit is a 32-bit ARM processor AT91SAM9G25 from Microchip. The 2.4 GHz WiFi and ZigBee signals allow you to distribute devices in a radius of up to 100 meters (open range) and connect up to 16 thermostats to each central unit.
