User Interaction

e7 utilizes progressive disclosure which is an interaction design technique that sequences information and actions
across several screens in order to reduce feelings of being overwhelmed for the user. By disclosing information
progressively, e7 reveals only the essentials and help the user manage the complexity of the feature-rich applications.
The e7 has 3 stages in progressive disclosure (all values are adjustable):
Dormant Mode - When the e7 thermostat is not in use by the guest for more than 15 seconds, or when the room is in
an un-occupied state (rented or un-rented), the e7 thermostat will only display target temperature, with a dim LCD and
keypad backlight.
Proximity Mode - As a user approaches the thermostat as detected by the proximity sensor, the backlights will
illuminate to full brightness, and display the fan speed, mode and degrees (C or F). This occurs when the user is within
the 1m detection range at 0 degrees in front of the laser sensor.
User Interaction Mode - When a button is pressed by the user, the thermostat will then display the modes (heat, cool,
eco) and the measured temperature.
Voice Control - The e7 thermostat is equipped with integration for Amazon Alexa Voice Service, so you can enable
hands-free convenience for temperature control in the guestroom. Voice control is enabled through a server to Cloud
integration with AWS. Refer to the property specific requirements documentation for details on this feature.
