How it Works

Energy is supplied to the heater with a ZBMLC15 for hardwired connected baseboard heaters.  For portable baseboard heaters, power to heater can be supplied by either a ZBMSKT1 smart outlet or a ZBMPlug15 smart plug.  Room temperature and humidity are sensed with a ZBHT2, and presence detected with the ZBMS3-1 motion sensor.  These devices are joined in a wireless network with a Harmony G2 gateway/hub that also connects to the Internet through the premises router.
The controller directly turns the heating element on or off in response to commands from the gateway.  The use of local temperature sensing via the ZBHT2 sensor enables whole house or individual area automation while achieving high levels of cost savings.  In addition, areas can be programmed to have lower temperatures when not occupied to further increase savings.
Smartenit has a Baseboard Smart reference kit to get you started on determining your service offering needs that includes one ZBMLC15 load controller, one ZBHT2 sensor, one ZBMS3-1 motion sensor, the Harmony G2 gateway and the Smartenit App ready to go. Please contact us for more details.
