Panasonic launches Aquarea control system

Panasonic has launched a new internet-connected control system for the Aquarea H Series heat pumps.

The Aquarea Smart Cloud enables users to manage and monitor their heating and hot water with an easy to use interface. This can be accessed via any web-enabled device, including Android and iOS applications and Internet browsers.

“The Aquarea Smart Cloud is a significant development in the control of heating and hot water systems, offering much greater functionality and a much more intuitive user interface,” says Marc Overson, Panasonic Country Manager, UK & Ireland.

“This enables users to optimise their heating and hot water from anywhere in the world, from computers, tablets and smartphones, to suit their specific requirements. We look forward to introducing an increased level of functionality throughout 2017 and enable full remote control and monitoring of the Aquarea system.”

According to the company, the Smart Cloud has a simple, intuitive user-friendly interface that enables installers and maintenance operators to control a number of functions of the Aquarea H Generation heat pump. Users can easily adjust the temperature in two different zones and view the current room temperature in that zone. Additionally, it is possible to change the temperature of the hot water supplied by the Aquarea system. This enables users to eliminate unnecessary heating when a zone is unoccupied and therefore reduce energy consumption.

The system also allows users to set holiday timers, weekly timers with different instructions for the separate zones and hot water and check the system for faults. This enables users to programme their heating and hot water system to meet their exact requirements and reduce energy usage through unnecessary heating and hot water.

Throughout 2017 Panasonic will add new services to the Aquarea Smart Cloud, focused on adding additional functionality to aid with maintenance of the system. This will allow maintenance professionals to engage in predictive maintenance and fine-tune the system, as well as fixing malfunctions when they occur. Installers will be able to manage several installations at once with a dedicated interface, saving time and simplifying logistics.

The only requirements of the Aquarea are the H Generation heat pump, the CZ-TAW-1 interface to connect to the Aquarea unit and an internet connection. When the user registers the device online, it will be connected to the service and the user can begin controlling it from the device of their choice.

Panasonic believes the Aquarea Smart Cloud is more than a simple thermostat for switching a heating system on or off. It is a powerful and intuitive device for remotely controlling the system’s range of heating and hot water functions, including monitoring energy consumption. In addition, malfunction warnings and remote maintenance capabilities will be added to the system from 2017, making it a comprehensive heating and hot water control system.
