Apps for control systems

Distech Controls

Distech Controls has developed two apps for the installation and use of controls in buildings. They are myDC Control app and the Smart-Sense Room Control app. Both are available for Android and iOS.

myDC Control is a tool for increased commissioning efficiency, reducing time and cost. With this app, one can test and commission HVAC systems single-handedly. For example, a system integrator or control technician can walk over to the equipment being commissioned, and test its operation first-hand, while using the app to view, set and over-ride related input and output values. That person can also test connected sensors and actuators.

The Smart-Sense Room Control app provides an intuitive interface for the occupants of modern buildings. This app enables occupants to view and set comfort parameters, such as temperature, fan speed, lighting, shades/sunblind and occupancy. Studies have demonstrated an increase in employee productivity of an additional 9% when occupants were provided with this control over their environmental settings.
