I am working with a sustainability consultant on a single family residence. Among many green features, the project will also include Solar Thermal collectors and automated window shading. I am designing an integrated dashboard for monitoring and controling all the energy, comfort, security and lighting systems. I believe that the iLON Smart Server will be able to provide the integrations, controls and communications needed.
Relative to HVAC we want to use off the shelf residential equipment as much as possible - such as the Lennox XP19-48 combined with a Lennox air handler and a Lennox Harmony III four zone controller. Does any one have experience or ideas for how get states and settings data from the Lennox equipment to the iLON Smart Server? Or are there other choices of equipment that are LON Mark compatible? Is there a better choice than iLON?
I would appreciate any suggestions.
