  • All IoT solutions directly supported for use in LETU facilities must use wired bridges talking to secure Internet cloud solutions unless otherwise approved by LETU Information Technology
  • In general, private wireless communications protocols such as Z-Wave, ClearConnect RF, or Zigbee will be preferred communication for wireless solutions over 802.11 public wireless frequencies for security and management reasons.


IoT Solutions for Consideration

(not all aspects of each solution may be supportable)

HVACEcobeeEcobee Thermostats and Smartbuildings
  • Ecobee has Commercial Si-series thermostats but also has a Smartbuildings software solution designed to make using it's consumer-grade Ecobee 3.4 thermostats manageable
  • Ecobee 4 series consumer thermostats support multiple wireless sensors, TOD sensor readings and occupancy
  • Does require wireless access and currently requires non-WPA wireless access (so would need thermostat-style workaround for any wireless)
