The purpose of this project is to improve energy efficiency in commercial kitchens by controlling the exhaust venting system. The control algorithm was based on data received from radio sensors placed at strategic points around kitchen.
Challenges for this project included:
- system reliability
- design of a custom antenna
- mechanical integration
- multi-point radio communications
- device pairing procedure
- reliable system testing
System key components:     - HopeRF RFM69HW 915MHz RF (Radio) Module
Project scope and outcome     - Controller units installed - 125e
The VentSmart system delivered enhanced functionality that dramatically reduces energy consumption by actively monitoring air quality and adjusting fan operation as required.
