Air Conditioning integrating with Control4


Recommended Posts

We are about to commence a new home build and I am just trying to work out if there is any pre wiring that I need to do so that my Fujitsu air conditioning system can easily integrate with Control4.

I won’t be installing Control 4 during the initial build but plan on getting it in the future.

Is there anything I need to do or anything I need to install so that when I Finally start my C4 journey integration will be easy.

 

Thanks.

Depends on the Fujitsu system.

Looks like you are in Australia.  Would recommend you install a Fujitsu AnywAir controller (it is a touchscreen on the wall). Once AnywAir is setup then it is Control4 compatible with the following driver.

How are these systems different from the Air Conditioning systems used in North America?  Is this the single room type of system rather than a whole house system?

The building company only uses either My Air or Air Touch as the controllers. Will these work?

Systems in the United states are usually seperate systems that are controlled in a pretty dumb way with a smart thermostat.  The logic to turn on and off these systems are within the thermostat itself.

Systems outside of the United States have essentially a user interface device that controls the HVAC system and also provides the HVAC system with a local room temperature.  As such wiring is usually proprietary to that manufacturer.

In terms of the actual HVAC system operation it can be a mix of gas and electricity though in Victoria, Australia new builds must be electricity only.  As such new systems tend to be inverter based.

Could go on more but to be honest I'm not a HVAC guy.  We just do lots of HVAC integration.

Hope that helps.
