Telkonet Launches Next Generation Networked
Energy Management Solution at HITEC
Gives property managers a new
level of green HVAC control,
delivering tangible energy savings
|June 17, 2008: Germantown, MD – Telkonet, Inc. (AMEX:TKO),
the leading provider of innovative, centrally managed solutions for integrated
energy management, networking, building automation and proactive support
services, is dynamically evolving energy management efficiency, with the
launch of the advanced Networked Telkonet Smart Energy (NTSE)
platform. Building on the proven capabilities of the Telkonet SmartEnergy
system, incorporating Telkonet's unique patented Recovery Time™ technology,
NTSE advances intelligent HVAC building control with a flexible, resilient
and low-cost energy management platform. NTSE gives property owners the
tools to identify and implement energy savings, providing total visibility
and detailed data about a property's HVAC system and its energy consumption,
together with real-time, instant remote management capabilities.
With HVAC costs typically accounting for more than 50% of a building's electricity overhead, controlling in-room energy consumption is a prime requirement. With NTSE, Energy Management Occupancy Sensors and Thermostats are linked together to form a wireless network, enabling information to be communicated between rooms, floors and even properties, and centralized for detailed reporting and analysis. Key to the NTSE concept is the ability to use existing Internet/intranet infrastructures, thereby increasing a properties return on investment. NTSE uses wireless Zigbee IEE802.15.4 mesh technology to create a highly robust and reliable network that can be easily retrofitted for a fast, seamless installation, without the need for expensive back-haul wiring. It delivers a robust, instantly scalable, and self-healing networked energy management system that delivers optimum energy savings without any compromise to occupant comfort.
NTSE provides a wide range of essential monitoring and analysis features, giving property management the all-important control over every facet of a building's energy consumption. Key features include:
NTSE realizes tangible energy savings by deploying Telkonet Energy Management Occupancy Sensors with smart, programmable Telkonet Energy Management Thermostats, to adjust and maintain a room's temperature according to occupancy, and avoiding any unnecessary heating or cooling of vacant rooms. Additionally, the system reduces the run-time for heating, ventilation and cooling equipment, decreasing maintenance overheads and extending the equipment's working life. Each device on the NTSE mesh network functions as a wireless repeater, enabling efficient communication between Energy Management Thermostats, as well as the ability to aggregate communications up to a single master Telkonet Gateway Server located on-site.
With NTSE, facility management have local and remote access to comprehensive management and reporting tools, delivered via the Telkonet CENTRAL Management Platform, which is securely accessible from any web browser. This ranges from viewing room status and occupancy in real-time, to defining rules and events for HVAC system operability. Telkonet CENTRAL provides a system-wide overview, without the need for any proprietary software, plug-ins or per-seat licensing. Changes are implemented instantly across the network, maximizing savings and ROI, as well as maintaining efficient operation.
