To develop iQZone, NORDYNE selected Airzone, the European leader in zoning systems. Airzone has integrated its communication technology to control up to 8 zones and 32 dampers in homes or offices. NORDYNE’s initial estimates that 10% of their iQ systems will incorporate the Airzone’s zoning.
iQ Zone works differently to traditional American systems. It is a network of devices based on microcontrollers that communicate with each other similar to a computer network. This provides comfort at home, 12% increased energy efficiency, reduce component count and ease of installation. More information can be obtained at http://iqdrive.net/iqzone.html
