Emerson is committed to enhancing its smart home partnerships and expanding offerings, while continuing to deliver on a deep legacy of HVAC expertise.

“Customers today are looking for easy-to-use advanced technology solutions that not only empower them to take control of their environments and comfort but also help protect health and wellness,” said Bob Sharp, executive president of Emerson’s Commercial & Residential Solutions business. “Maintaining an optimal temperature and air quality is critical to a high quality of life.

Awair is an indoor air quality monitoring platform available through Sensi’s smart home integrations portfolio. As a top indoor air quality solution, Awair monitors the five key factors that impact air quality and affect human health: chemicals (total VOCs), temperature, humidity, particulate matter (PM2.5) and carbon dioxide (CO2). With this integration, Sensi and Awair users can receive real-time insight into their home’s air quality and use Sensi’s circulating fan feature to automatically regulate temperature and improve the health of their spaces.
“Awair provides personalized recommendations based on an analysis of air quality to help users stay safe and healthy,” said Ron Ro, co-founder and CEO of Awair. “Air quality affects everything from allergies to productivity and sleep quality, so we’re pleased to bring our technology to more homes with our new partnership with Emerson and Sensi.”
This integration is the latest in a broad portfolio that includes Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit™. To help users easily integrate with their preferred smart home platform, Emerson offers smart home integration support in the Sensi app.
Emerson’s Sensi smart thermostats can save users about 23% of HVAC energy consumption by adjusting the temperature using flexible scheduling, remote access and geofencing. To help users determine their estimated cost savings, Emerson provides not only an energy savings calculator on its Sensi website, but also usage reports within the Sensi mobile app. In addition, many customers can take advantage of cost savings through utility and energy company rebates available for homes that use ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostats.
