May 16, 2013: Allure’s Smart Thermostat Control to be Built in Texas

May 16, 2013
AUSTIN, Texas — Allure Energy Inc. announced that its EverSense™ wireless smart thermostat control will be built in Austin, Texas. Allure selected local contract manufacturer Kodiak Systems to manufacture the product starting next month.

“Over the last year we spent a lot of time evaluating foreign and domestic manufacturing options for building EverSense,” said Kevin Imes, CEO of Allure Energy. “When we compared all of the costs, financial or otherwise, we quickly converged on securing a domestic manufacturing resource as our contract manufacturer.”

According to the company, EverSense is a wireless smart thermostat control that uses location-based services within a mobile app to adjust the thermostat’s settings. Apps will be available for iPhone and Android users. The EverSense system also includes other features, such as speakers for wirelessly streaming audio, a weather application with animated radar, and an energy tips application to educate consumers on energy saving products and services.

“During the design phase for EverSense, I challenged our team to create a final assembly process that would take less than 5 minutes per system,” Imes said. “They responded by reducing the assembly process to less than 1 minute. With the reduced build time, we are able to compete with foreign manufacturers.”

In addition to local manufacturing, Allure Energy chose several local semiconductor suppliers. “Using a local manufacturer and suppliers provides us a competitive advantage. It also allows us to create jobs both internal to Allure Energy, and within the Austin community. It’s a win-win across the board,” said Imes.
