One of the reasons the EnTouch Energy Management Systems can be so cost effective for small commercial facilities is the availability of key technologies like cloud computing and wireless.
With cloud computing, we can deliver the analytics and remote monitoring capabilities that used to require a lot of expensive onsite servers. With wireless, we can install a controller and sensors throughout a building without needing to string new cables to connect them.
And because we use standardized technology, the costs continue to drop as the technology grows in popularity.
Today, we’re being held up as an example of how to use wireless communications in a machine-to-machine (M2M) application through a press release issued by Telit, our supplier of cellular wireless chips. EnTouch offers its customers the choice of cellular or WiFi connectivity between their master controller and the Internet.
You can read the entire press release on the Telit website
but here’s what the company says about EnTouch:
“The market is expanding for applications like EnTouch’s EMS platform that make energy management more efficient while being simple to deploy and operate,” said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America. “Their progressive business model addresses customer needs particularly in high-energy-cost markets. The GE865-QUAD plus Telit‘s extensive technical integration support are exactly what this type of application requires for a cost-effective, streamlined and successful go-to-market.”
