CES 2018: Nexia Introduces Innovative New Features, Products to Further Enhance Consumers’ Connected Comfort Experience

Experience Nexia’s Latest Innovations During CES at Pepcom or the Z-Wave Experience House

LAS VEGAS (Jan. 8, 2018) – Smart home technology leader Nexia™, a brand of Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), today announced breakthrough feature and product innovations, RoomIQ and Trane XL724, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018. Nexia, the smart home system that gives those with active lifestyles a better way to do everyday tasks and spend more time enjoying life, will be showcasing these innovations at Pepcom on Monday, Jan. 8, and the Z-Wave Experience House (booth #41717). RoomIQ by Nexia, a feature for Trane and American Standard Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) comfort systems, will use the system’s Nexia-enabled thermostat and Nexia smart home triggers to customize the heating and cooling experience.

RoomIQ goes beyond scheduling and adapts the comfort control to occupied rooms. It customizes comfort levels using cues from the Nexia system – motion detection, flip of light switches or any trigger the user chooses– to determine when a room is occupied and then ensures the comfort in those rooms takes priority over unoccupied rooms. RoomIQ will work simultaneously with Trane’s new ZSENS930 Wireless Temperature Sensor. Small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, this sensor reports the temperature and humidity data that lets RoomIQ determine what temperature set point meets the needs at
that moment. When used in conjunction with the RoomIQ feature, the HVAC system can average temperatures between selected rooms to help the system reach ideal comfort conditions. For example, during the day a home may be controlled based on comfort in the common areas downstairs, and at night control the comfort of the bedrooms upstairs. These low-cost wireless sensors are Z-Wave compatible and designed to be paired with Trane’s existing line of thermostats and HVAC systems. Users can conveniently configure and control their ideal comfort conditions with their iOS or Android smartphone via the Nexia app.

The Trane XL724 is a programmable, touch-screen thermostat with WiFi connectivity that can remotely control a home’s temperature to help suit the user’s lifestyle and reduce energy consumption. The thermostat can be easily controlled from a smartphone, tablet or computer and is fully compatible with Nexia Diagnostics for remote monitoring by licensed HVAC professionals. It also allows users basic control of their home’s heating and cooling by creating up to four different schedules within a day and advanced control via the power of Nexia’s geofencing feature.

In addition to launching new products at CES 2018, Nexia will be the controlling smart home application for this year’s Z-Wave Experience House. To showcase the versatility and breadth of Nexia, which works with more than 500 devices from more than 80 manufacturers, the Z-Wave House will connect and control a wide variety of smart products through the Nexia platform. To witness Nexia in action at the Z-Wave house, visit booth 41717. At Pepcom, Nexia will be exhibiting Nexia Flow, a heat map that displays where Nexia is utilized across the United States, proving that it is the leading connected platform within the builder community.

Nexia’s RoomIQ, ZSENS930 Wireless Temperature Sensor, and Trane XL724 will be available in the first half of 2018.  Nexia is exhibiting its RoomIQ, ZSENS930 Wireless Temperature Sensor, and Trane XL724 at CES/Pepcom 2018.
