Intelligent Thermostats Installed at Massachusetts Assisted Living Residences

MILWAUKEE — Telkonet Inc., developer of the EcoSmart energy management platform, announced that two Youville Assisted Living Residences in Massachusetts have successfully implemented its EcoInsight Basic thermostats.

Telkonet said health care represents a new growth market for the company, particularly within long-term residential facilities. Its EcoSmart technology is providing maximum comfort for residents in the assisted-living communities, Youville House in Cambridge, Mass., and Youville Place in Lexington, Mass., where all 187 apartments have been equipped with an EcoInsight thermostat for independent temperature control.

To assist residents, Telkonet’s intelligent thermostats feature Auto Mode, which allows the room temperature to be adjusted without selecting Heat or Cool mode. Auto Mode drives heating or cooling as necessary to meet the temperature requested, simplifying thermostat operation. Additionally, all thermostats can be programmed to illuminate the backlight when any button is pressed.

World Energy Solutions Inc., a Massachusetts-based energy management services firm, and one of Telkonet’s corporate partners, selected and implemented the Telkonet hardware for this energy efficiency project. The EcoInsight Basic thermostats are upgradeable thermostats, designed to provide a property with a simple path to more advanced energy management.

“Telkonet’s EcoInsight Basic thermostats are a good fit for properties interested in energy management but not yet ready to implement a complete energy management system,” said John Duquette, vice president of energy efficiency sales at World Energy Solutions.
