Big Ass Fans says its SmartSense365 is engineered to maximize both energy savings and comfort through year-round fan control with the push of a button. Three user modes—winter, summer and manual—control fans so users can concentrate on other tasks.
In winter mode, the sensor uses internal temperatures to automatically adjust the fan’s speed to floor-to-ceiling temperature differential. This process of destratification not only keeps employees warmer and more productive, but also reduces heating bills by as much as 30 percent, the company says. In summer mode, the fan speed increases as the temperature at floor level rises, keeping employees cool, comfortable and more productive, the company says. In manual mode, users can control every aspect of fan operation.
According to the company, the sensor’s intuitive interface is easy to operate. The three push-button controls switch user modes, while the bright LED lights are color coded to identify the selected mode.
