Offering inexpensive intelligent lighting control to existing light switches all while maintaining property aesthetics
WAUKESHA, WI / ACCESSWIRE / February 18, 2020 / Telkonet, Inc. (OTCQB:TKOI) (the "Company" or "Telkonet"), creator of the EcoSmart platform of intelligent automation solutions designed to optimize comfort, energy efficiency and guest experience has released the innovative EcoInput, an intelligent energy management lighting controller and the newest addition to Telkonet's extensive line of intelligent, commercial IoT devices. The EcoInput controller is installed directly in line with existing light switches, making them intelligent and manageable. IoT solutions are no longer restricted by interior design limitations, which mandate that specific light switches be featured in guest rooms.
Telkonet's EcoInput adds intelligent automation to existing light switches
Owners can eliminate unnecessary spending on the upgrade of existing light switches. With the EcoInput, light switches become "smart" at a fraction of the cost. The EcoInput does not require a neutral connection. One EcoInput can be wired to one switch, or as a three-way switch configuration. Compatible with LED, CFL, and incandescent lighting for enhanced dimming controls
"An ability to recognize customer preference while traveling and also maximizing a commercial property's energy efficiency are guiding principles of Telkonet's development," stated Jason Tienor, Telkonet CEO. "The EcoInput is EcoSmart's newest intelligent device enabling Telkonet customers to create new, immersive intelligent experiences for guests while providing an ROI through incentives and property savings."
The EcoInput will also assist properties in implementing Title 24 compliant projects by pairing the EcoSmart thermostat with an EcoInput lighting controller. Using an EcoInput as the first switch in the lighting circuit is a cost-effective and compliant Title 24 solution. The EcoInput is installed with your existing wall switch, allowing you to upgrade to smart lighting without changing your current property look and feel. When the thermostat sensor detects the room is unoccupied, it wirelessly controls the switch to deactivate the lighting circuit. It can readily serve as the room's master switch.
With the EcoInput and EcoSmart platform, a load shed event can be transparent to occupants, maintaining room comfort while conforming to Title 24 regulations. Through the networking capabilities of the system, the temperatures in occupied rooms can also be adjusted to optimize kW reductions.
The EcoInput is Zigbee HA compliant, so it can communicate with all other HA compliant devices, making it as flexible as Telkonet's other EcoSmart devices in third-party interoperability.
