About Alan

I design industrial sensors for a living. I have run my own design company for 13 years. I recently relocated to the southwest and bought a home with evaporative cooling. Evaporative cooling is very energy efficient and allows fresh are intake along with cooling. Unfortunately the thermostat controls available for evaporative coolers are still at 1970's level technology. I have a prototype for a smart link between evaporated cooling systems (common HVAC in the southwest) and smart thermostats such as Nest and Ecobee.
