GreenWave Reality Cooperates with Danfoss to Deliver Innovative, Connected Thermostat Solutions
Extends Home Energy Management Service to Include Smart Thermostats
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – (3th OCTOBER 2011 ) –GreenWave Reality, a global innovator in the Smart Home Services market which includes Energy Management, Connected Lighting, and Home Monitoring services, announced today they have started a cooperation with Danfoss to extend their innovative Home Energy Management platform to support Danfoss Smart Thermostats. Danfoss is a leading manufacturer of controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration, and motion systems. This collaboration gives consumers the ability to control the temperature of their homes by way of GreenWave Reality’s industry-leading interfaces running on PCs, tablets and smartphones.
In addition to monitoring and controlling the energy consumption of all electrical devices and connected lighting in the home, consumers can now use the GreenWave Reality solution to control the thermostats in the home to extend these energy savings to heating, the single largest energy consumer of most homes. The GreenWave Reality Energy Management Platform communicates with Danfoss smart thermostats using industry-standard Z-Wave® communications protocol. GreenWave Reality’s adherence to industry standards allows for a high level of interoperability with other devices and extensibility of the GreenWave Reality platform to include new solutions such as controlling the Danfoss Smart thermostats.
“Danfoss is a recognized innovation and market share leader in thermostat technology, making them an excellent choice for this partnership that extends the GreenWave Reality platform to control home heating,” said Greg Memo, CEO of GreenWave Reality. “By integrating the Danfoss smart thermostats, we are extending the reach of our platform by delivering more visibility and value to consumers.”
“Danfoss continues to extend our leadership position in smart thermostats. Being able to control these thermostats from a central user friendly platform, which can control more than the heating, makes the user experience even better. Bundle this with possibilities for remote control and monitoring and you have the possibility for added comfort and additional cost savings. It is just such a solution that Greenwave provides making it an excellent match,” added Danfoss KAM Jesper Kjeldsen.
The companies will be demonstrating this innovative solution at the Smart Homes Conference in Amsterdam, October 4th – 6th in the GreenWave Reality booth (#SH30) and the Danfoss booth.
