Quincy House

The Quincy House is a participant in the thousand home challenge, a challenge to renovate existing houses to be greener and more energy efficient. You can see the extensive renovations this particular site went through here.

While the project has several pieces that have been worked on over a range of time, this thermal data has been streaming since July 1, 2011.

Use calendar to view different time spans.

Thermal data began 7/01/2011

Solar Differential Controller Settings

  • Click the '+' button to show more settings and setting details.
To view changes made locally to the controller use "Check for Changes" button at bottom of settings list. May take up to 5 minutes based on controller connected.

To save locally changed settings a Technician User must verify the setting. To claim control use "Assume Control" button at the bottom of settings list. If button does not appear, you have control of the site or are not a Technician User.

Technician Users may remotely change controller settings. Check controller manual for more detail about settings.

  • To change a setting with a text field, press enter after filling in the text box.
  • K and R denote units for temperature difference (deltas). They stand for Kelvin (metric) and Rankine (imperial).
  • All changes made through this page will be logged in the General Logs section of the SITE PORTFOLIO.

If you do not see a setting listed or have questions please contact us at support@solarwave.com
