Apr 10, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today that Network Thermostat, a leading provider of connected thermostat solutions for small businesses, K-12 education, hospitality, multi-family, government, retail and restaurant chains, commercial buildings, and light industrial applications in facility energy management and automation, has selected DSP Group’s Ultra-Low Energy (ULE) technology for two of its smart thermostat family of products. 


Smart thermostats and intelligent HVAC systems are one of the most widely adopted applications within the Internet of Things (IoT). Network Thermostat recognized the benefits of the ULE technology: full house coverage with the robustness to pass through multiple walls, ability to connect thousands of nodes to a single base unit, long battery life, and interference-free spectrum band. Leveraging the benefits of DSP Group’s ULE Technology, Network Thermostat’s HVAC platforms deliver unparalleled range and performance with wireless remote sensing applications such as window/door contacts, refrigeration monitoring, water leak detection, motion sensing, as well as various temperature and humidity monitoring. Network Thermostat’s Wi-Fi and Ethernet thermostat platforms, including its new NetX™ X7 color touch screen, will act as the ULE base station using DSP Group’s DHAN-M module integrated within the thermostat.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with Network Thermostat, further expanding the global adoption of ULE and tapping beyond smart homes,” said Tali Chen, Chief Marketing Officer at DSP Group. “Network Thermostat’s Wi-Fi and Ethernet platforms not only provide advanced HVAC functionality, but also become the intelligent control center that leverages DSP Group’s robust ULE wireless technology. Network Thermostat is one of the first US-based providers that is identifying the ULE benefits and supporting our target of increasing the ULE ecosystem across North America.”

“Adding DSP Group’s ULE technology to our new Wi-Fi and Ethernet NetX™ X7 intelligent HVAC control platform underpins our commitment to providing best-in-class IoT solutions. The long battery life and robust, interference-free networking allow Network Thermostat to wirelessly deliver secure, critical monitoring and alerting to our customers,” said Jerry Drew, CEO at Network Thermostat.

“Given the increasing adoption of ULE technology, it was an easy choice to integrate ULE into our NetX™ X7 platform, both for wireless sensors and for the near endless integration possibilities with ULE.”

DSP Group’s ULE technology allows Network Thermostat’s intelligent HVAC systems to benefit from a robust technology with a long-proven track record while providing long battery life for the network’s sensors.
