Wyoming Patent of the Month – October 2023
Given the high cost of energy production – and the devastating effects this production has on the environment – conservative use of electricity, gas, and water has become a growing requirement. In fact, many municipalities are beginning to enforce this conservation on their residents through regulation and legislation. To address this, Orison, Inc. has designed a wireless wall thermostat which offers an innovative approach to home climate control. This technology combines flexibility, user-friendliness, and advanced features to enhance energy efficiency and provide consumers with more control over their environment.
Orison’s wireless wall thermostat offers a unique solution to address the need for energy conservation, user-friendliness, and adaptability in modern homes. Unlike traditional built-in thermostats, Orison’s design is wireless and detachable. This flexibility allows homeowners to position thermostats in locations that best suit their needs, maximizing energy efficiency and climate control.
The user-centric design of this thermostat ensures that it’s easy to operate. The E-Ink graphic user interface is intuitive and user-friendly, making temperature adjustments a breeze. By using push mechanics, users can simply push the top or bottom of the thermostat to raise or lower the temperature without the need for small, hard-to-see switches.
One of the key features of this thermostat is its ability to integrate with a network of multiple temperature sensors. This network enhances accuracy in temperature readings and climate control. Whether you choose to use a single thermostat or create a network of sensors throughout your home, you’ll benefit from precise climate control and efficient energy usage.
In addition to temperature sensors, this wireless thermostat also includes humidity sensors. This feature provides a more comprehensive understanding of the indoor climate and allows for better management of comfort and energy consumption.
The wireless wall thermostat design also incorporates rechargeable battery technology, ensuring it’s always operational with long-lasting battery life. The inclusion of a rechargeable USB battery port is both convenient and eco-friendly.
Furthermore, this thermostat uses ZigBee communication standards, optimizing low-power usage and taking advantage of mesh network communication capabilities. The result is an energy-efficient, smart thermostat that helps users reduce their energy consumption and environmental impact.
