  • Touch Combo
    Telkonet’s newest Touch Combo in-room controller features WiFi, Zigbee, AND Bluetooth. The Touch Combo operates independently or on a networked platform and is especially suited for hospitality, student housing, MDU's, and senior living....

  • Touch Combo is the only controller of its kind on the market.

    As part of a networked solution, Touch Combo can use existing Wi-Fi access points, so there’s no need for additional infrastructure such as Zigbee coordinators. Touch Combo can use Telkonet’s new Rhapsody platform, third-party platforms like Control4, or other platforms via BACnet or our new open-source Melody API interface.

    Networked or stand-alone, the Touch Combo can integrate directly with Zigbee-enabled and Bluetooth-enabled devices like door locks and panic buttons.

    Touch Combo is compatible with the widest variety of HVAC systems and it features a modern, sleek design and a built-in occupancy sensor and humidistat.

    End-users can also control Touch Combo remotely using the Rhapsody Sonata mobile app.

  • Telkonet VRF Controller
    In the US, VRF demand is exploding, and Telkonet’s VRF Controller works with all major VRF manufacturers. Due to native integrations, Mitsubishi, Samsung, and LG VRF equipment require no 3rd-party interface devices, saving more than $160 per indoor unit!...

  • VRF demand is driven by its strong energy-saving potential and minimum maintenance requirements. Telkonet’s proven VRF compatibility with most major VRF manufacturers is a testament to the product’s success. Many of Telkonet’s competitors don’t even offer VRF solutions.

    Telkonet’s VRF Controller is easily installed and programmed and like all of the company’s controllers, it uses Recovery Time technology, utilizing algorithms so they actually learn from the environment, for maximum energy savings and guest comfort.
