Renson introduces the Healthbox 3.0, a compact ‘smart home’ ventilation unit that comes with installation and user apps for practical installation and easy operation.
Ensuring a constant supply of fresh air in the home in a fully automated manner, Healthbox 3.0 represents the new generation of demand-controlled ventilation ready for use in all smart homes because of its ability to communicate with both the installer and the resident through a linked app.
Healthbox 3.0: intelligent and energy efficient
Built-in sensors in the Healthbox 3.0 continuously measure the level of humidity, CO2 and/or VOC (volatile organic compounds, or odours), allowing ventilation levels to be adjusted where and when necessary. The SmartConnect connection turns the Healthbox 3.0 into a connected ventilation system for smart homes. The unit is equipped with a new, even more energy-efficient and silent ventilator. The Healthbox is part of the C+ ventilation system and ensures a gain of up to 23 points in the home’s E-level.
Standing barely 20cm high, the Healthbox 3.0 ventilation unit has a sleek design that enables a discreet installation. Two Easyflex air ducts can be connected next to each other if the connections are far enough apart. The various redesigned valves with improved operation can now be connected remotely instead of directly on the unit. By using the collectors, more spaces up to a maximum of 11 can be ventilated instead of the available 7 connections on the ventilation unit. This means that the Smart Zone principle (including extraction in the bedrooms) can be more easily applied and installed in a more compact manner using fewer pipes.
Installers will find the Healthbox 3.0 application very helpful for installing and regulating the ventilation unit. All the parameters such as pressure drop, set flow rate, etc., have been visualised while there is no need for manual setting of dip switches as the app can be used to directly adjust the flow rate of the separate extraction points if necessary. Moreover, the necessary documents for the EPB application are automatically generated after regulating the system. The app also grants the installer access to the web portal where all of their installations can be managed for follow-up on all job sites, complete with documentation.
User application: connected to the home and the ventilation
The resident can view the quality of indoor air in a separate user application. The Healthbox 3.0’s recent activity is also displayed along with the logs per room for ventilation, humidity, CO2 and/or VOC levels.
By default, the Healthbox 3.0 will ventilate based on the ‘Health’ profile that ensures the indoor air is healthy. The demand-controlled ventilation ensures fresh air in each room based on the programmed profile settings. Selecting the ‘Intense’ profile, for instance, will ensure that the polluted air is more quickly extracted due to a more intensive ventilation level. The ‘Eco’ profile, on the other hand, prioritises energy efficiency and extracts the polluted air over a longer period of time at a lower ventilation level.
Healthbox 3.0 will be available in 2018.
