SAN RAMON, CA, November 17, 2010 – The ClimateTalk™ Alliance announces the development of a Zoning Profile to drive interoperability with HVAC systems also developed to ClimateTalk Standards. The new Zoning Profile will leverage the ClimateTalk Information Model for seamless integration with compatible thermostats, furnace/air handlers and air conditioners/heat pumps in addition to providing the installation, performance and diagnostic benefits of ClimateTalk enabled equipment. The Zoning Profile development activity was kicked off at the recent ClimateTalk Alliance Member Meeting held October 27 and 28, 2010 at the Microchip World Headquarters in Chandler, AZ.

At the Fall Member Meeting, the ClimateTalk Alliance also welcomed new members eControls, Honeywell and Jackson Systems, furthering its goal to create a membership base comprised of major leaders within the HVAC, water heater and zoning equipment markets. These industry leaders join the current lineup of now 24 ClimateTalk Alliance members who are working to drive the future of ClimateTalk Standards.

“As we celebrate the first anniversary of the ClimateTalk Alliance, it’s promising to see how far we’ve come and the momentum we’ve built by demonstrating that our vision for an open standard can work,” said John Brown chief engineer at EWC Controls who also chairs the ClimateTalk Information Model Working Group, responsible for the development of all new application profiles. “Developing new application profiles that adhere to the ClimateTalk Information Model is key to ensuring that we can offer solutions that will foster an ecosystem of interoperable HVAC, zoning, water heater and other smart grid devices.”

Control Solutions, Inc Membership in the ClimateTalk Alliance is open to companies committed to developing standards for machine to machine communications that address the need for simple to install, plug and play solutions. The ClimateTalk standards provide solutions that minimize energy consumption thru advanced control and maximize system performance with diagnostics and enhanced user interface.
