UCTUPUS is an innovative energy distribution system for enhancing the thermal comfort and energy efficiency in residential and small commercial buildings with forced air central Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems. The unique design of UCTUPUS allows it to be implemented in both new and retrofit applications. Uctupus allows homeowners to control or schedule the temperature of each room independently, offering a tailored level of comfort and great energy efficiency simultaneously.
Being able to control temperature by adjusting the airflows, UCTUPUS will distribute conditioned air to each room of the building based on the heating/cooling demand of that specific room. This would help to compensate for commonly existing ducting, insulation, or design deficiencies.
UCTUPUS has three main components:
Central controller turns the HVAC system ON/OFF and adjusts the air flows based on both the user demand and temperature readings from the temperature sensors.
UCTUPUS is fully wireless and does not need Internet, Wi-Fi, or modem to operate. It is plug and play like a fridge. It has an app that turns any smart-phone into a remote control for the system. However, it is Internet-enabled allowing you to remotely control the temperature of every room in your house. For further info refer to FAQ page.
