Samsung Bolsters SmartThings Platform with Airzone Integration

Samsung SmartThings continues to expand its connected living ecosystem for today’s smart home. The company is partnering with Airzone Control, a leader in HVAC zoning and smart control solutions, is partnering with SmartThings, to integrate into the SmartThings ecosystem.

The collaboration will make it possible to connect HVAC units from any leading manufacturer to SmartThings, bringing new levels of simplicity, control, and efficiency to smart homes, according to Airzone.

The integration follows similar partnerships with Savant, Google Nest, and URC earlier this year.

HVAC is one of the most energy-hungry systems in the home, the company explains. For consumers looking to leverage the SmartThings platform to control their energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint, monitoring HVAC usage in the home is essential.

Airzone offers a line of after-market control devices that connect directly to the HVAC unit, instantly turning it into a smart device, which can now be operated via the Samsung SmartThings platform.

“Bringing HVAC into the SmartThings ecosystem will have a profound impact on smart home efficiency and experience,” states Antonio Mediato, CEO of Airzone.

“Inverter/VRF HVAC units controlled by Airzone devices are up to 40% more efficient, and zoned systems can achieve 60% greater efficiency. This partnership with Samsung is going to have a measurable effect on consumers’ lives.”

Airzone & Samsung SmartThings Combined Benefits

Airzone’s Aidoo HVAC controller works with every leading Inverter/VRF brand, including Samsung, Mitsubishi, Daikin, and more. As part of the partnership between SmartThings and Airzone, three Aidoo HVAC control products are now Works with SmartThings certified:

Aidoo Pro – a flagship control device that allows integration between the latest Inverter, VRF, mini-split, and multisplit HVAC units and third-party IoT devices, including smart thermostats and home automation systems.

Aidoo Wi-Fi – a control device that enables voice- or app-based HVAC control of Inverter/VRF units. If consumers want to use the original manufacturer’s thermostat but still connect to SmartThings, Aidoo Wi-Fi is all they need.

Aidoo Pro Fancoil – an Aidoo control device enabling app-based control of legacy fancoil units (available only in the EU).

Maximizing Efficiency with Zoned HVAC Control

For even greater efficiency and room-by-room temperature control, Airzone notes that it offers zoning control solutions.

The Works with SmartThings-certified Webserver HUB and Webserver Cloud enables total control of sensors, thermostats, and up to 32 separate zoned HVAC units, the company says.

With the Aidoo control and Webserver zoning solutions, users can monitor and control their home’s HVAC systems from anywhere via the SmartThings app. These devices also enable two-way communication between HVAC units and SmartThings automation experiences.

“This collaboration with Airzone underscores our commitment to providing a holistic smart home experience,” says Mark Benson, Head of SmartThings U.S.

“By integrating Airzone’s advanced HVAC control devices into the SmartThings ecosystem, we are setting new standards for energy efficiency and intelligent automation in homes across the globe.”
