DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Manetos Smart Heating Family

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Temperature System

INSPIRATION:
The Manetos Smart Heating Family is the heart of the house. The different units all carry the pulsing heart. Behind the heart is a set of RGB leds that can change color and pulse to indicate system status and activity. The design work has been carried out in close cooperation with the company technical department as well as with an understanding of the market’s needs for systems that reflect environmental concerns and intelligent systems for comfort and heat management.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Advanced and adaptive temperature control system, supporting all types of modular heating. Sensors learn about the house, and accumulate information to save energy and improve comfort. Pictures show base unit, temperature units, extender units, Y-box, and mobile phone interface. Design carried out with user studies and interviews. RGB leds in the pulsing heart indicate system status and activity. Temperature units rely on e-paper displays for low energy consumption and clear, crisp graphics.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The system learns how your heating system and house works to optimize heat, save energy and improve comfort. The sensors accumulate information on how your house works and improves operational management that saves as much energy as possible. When at home, optimum comfort temperature is ensured. After one year, 15–30 percent of heating costs should be saved. The temperature units communicate basic information through e-paper displays. The advanced system management and controls are made through a mobile app.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project has been carried out during 2016.
