Sinopé Technologies announces new interfaces to remotely control their heat pumps

In addition to allowing remote control of ductless heat pumps that are not smart by default, the new interfaces can interlock separate heating systems controlled by Sinopé thermostats.
SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU — Canadian smart devices manufacturer Sinopé Technologies will allow consumers to remotely control their ductless heat pumps and tie their operation with distinct heating systems due to its new smart ductless heat pump interfaces that plug directly into the dedicated ports of compatible ductless heat pumps to provide them with complete smart control features.
“With these interfaces, Sinopé Technologies is once again reinventing remote control and energy efficiency in the most concise way possible. The interfaces become one with the heat pump: they are powered directly by them and provide them with all kinds of smart features, without interference or intermediary,” relates Maxime Labonté, Chief Commercial Officer at Sinopé Technologies.
In addition to allowing remote control of ductless heat pumps that are not smart by default, the new interfaces can interlock separate heating systems controlled by Sinopé thermostats (e.g. electric baseboards, heated floors, etc.) and air conditioning. It is thus possible to prevent electric baseboard heaters from heating while the ductless heat pump is cooling, a common issue in the fall and spring when the nights are colder than the days.
Initially designed to meet the energy efficiency standard that came into force in the Province of Quebec on December 27, 2021, stipulating that new residential buildings of more than three floors or over 600 m², commercial, institutional and industrial buildings had to implement devices preventing the simultaneous operation of heating and air conditioning, the ductless heat pump control solution designed by Sinopé Technologies has proven itself in multi-residential buildings for more than three years. Combined with the Sinopé TH1134ZB/HC line voltage thermostat, the interfaces can 1) eliminate the physical remote control of ductless heat pumps by gathering all manual control of separate systems in a single thermostat and; 2) prioritize the heating source based on the effectiveness threshold of the heat pump.
