Mitsubishi Electric Announces Expansion of RedLINK™ Wireless Controller to Residential Product Line

SUWANEE, Georgia, June 26, 2014 – Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric), America's No. 1 selling brand of ductless cooling and heating technology, has expanded its offering of unique RedLINK® wireless controllers. These controllers are now available with Mitsubishi Electric's M-Series line of residential split-ductless and ducted cooling and heating systems. The RedLINK wireless controllers, previously available only with the light-commercial P-Series product line of split-ductless and ducted systems, now provide increased zoning and temperature control capabilities to the residential M-Series line.

This eliminates the need for electrical wires and enables the wireless controller(s) to be placed in a different room than the indoor units. "RedLINK wireless controllers increase temperature control capabilities to maximize end-user comfort and reduce energy costs," says Mike Smith, senior product marketing manager, Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division. "This controller has been very popular in the light-commercial market, and we're excited to be able to extend its benefits to our residential products."

RedLINK controllers are compatible with the Honeywell RedLINK Internet Gateway (RIG, pictured right), which allows users to control HVAC systems remotely through a Web browser, iPhone®, iPad®, Android® or any Internet- enabled smart device. Through RIG, users will gain access to the Total Connect® Comfort portal to download free apps that enable remote monitoring and access to the following system functions:A photo of the Honeywell RedLINK Internet Gateway (RIG)
