Johnson Controls GLAS Smart Thermostat Named a 2018 AHR Expo Innovation Award Finalist
CHICAGO — Johnson Controls GLAS smart thermostat has been named a 2018 AHR Expo Innovation Award Finalist in the Indoor Air Quality category.
The annual Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigerating (AHR) awards honor the most inventive and original HVACR products, systems and technologies that are showcased at each year’s AHR Expo. Products are evaluated by a panel of third-party, ASHRAE-member judges who assess entries based on innovative design, creativity, application, value and market impact.
Launching in early 2018, GLAS is the first smart thermostat of its kind to utilize a translucent OLED touchscreen display to control its functions. Users simply touch the screen to change the temperature, monitor indoor and outdoor air quality, track energy savings or perform other functions. Alternately, GLAS can be controlled by mobile app or by voice, thanks to Microsoft’s voice-enabled digital assistant, Cortana.
GLAS can be installed in select commercial applications as well as residential settings. Johnson Controls understands that contractors, engineers, facility managers and others involved in commercial HVAC specifications have exacting standards for their buildings, which is why it has been proud to meet or exceed those standards for over a century. As such, GLAS has been designed to adapt to a wide range of installations.
