Historically, energy management systems have been out of reach of small businesses because they required expensive computer servers and dedicated networks. But EnTouch has made a business of bringing sophisticated energy management to restaurants, retail chains and other small businesses.
What’s the secret?
There’s actually two – the cloud and a new wireless technology called M2M (for machine-to-machine connection). Today, we’re excited to share that EnTouch Controls has partnered with RacoWireless, the leading machine-to-machine (M2M) enabler, to provide a connected solution for facility management.
Through this partnership with RacoWireless, EnTouch can integrate wireless thermostats and monitoring controllers with a cloud-based facility management dashboard that customers can access from anywhere. The connected systems feed the dashboard every minute with usage data that can be analyzed for trends to identify maintenance issues or usage patterns.
The combined solution is making energy management easier and more cost effective than ever for small businesses and can mean big savings for these companies. In fact, we’ve seen up to 35% energy reduction from our products.
