Polar Bear Design are offering the Zentium Thermostat as a replacement for the Cool Automation ThermoPad which has issued an end-of-life statement.

As we move into March of 2021, the smart home/smart building industry has seen many challenges in the last 12 months. For roughly a year projects have been distributed, put on hold or cancelled. So, good news on how to avoid added disruption to planned projects should be very welcome and that is exactly what we are offering with the Zentium Thermostat as your ally. 

A great new feature has been added to the Zentium thermostat, that help integrate with room fan coil units.

Many VRF / VRV have built in return air temperature sensors that are used internally for that VRF to regulate its own operation. The setpoint of the VRF can be changed by the user but typically the temperature reading is hidden away with the BMS controls.

Announced on October 8, our Zentium Thermostat was named as a winner in the Americas region CEDIA Awards in the ‘Best New Hardware’ category.
We are delighted that the effort in creating the product has been recognised by such a prestigious awards initiative set up by the industry’s own association.
The award is also an endorsement of the positive reception the product has had from the integrator community, not just in the Americas region, but also in the EMEA where the Zentium also reached the finals of the same category in the the CEDIA Awards.

Just as lighting is a key aspect to enjoy any space, the client experience is also affected by the temperature of that space. The user experience of temperature control is often overlooked as it is seen as something difficult and out of many installers’ comfort zone.

In many luxury buildings, air conditioning is standard. However, these are typically commercial systems that require a significant amount of design and calculations. This industry is heavily commercial based and the idea of elegant, easy to use controls is often lost. With all the calculations, environmental impact and performance specifications, the consideration of the user is lost. The goal of the Zentium thermostat is to meet the concerns of installers and interior designers in a process that benefits everyone.
