Oct. 24, 2012: eMonitor Mobile App Enhanced with New Energy Management and Control Functions

October 24, 2012
BOSTON — Powerhouse Dynamics, creator of the eMonitor™ energy and asset management system, announced that it has released a new version of the eMonitor mobile app that adds new features for managers of commercial facilities as well as homeowners. The mobile app is now available for the iPhone® — including iOS6® — and the Android® mobile platform.

“Our customers are busy people. Whether they’re homeowners or commercial property managers, they have limited time to focus on energy management. Our latest eMonitor mobile app provides more powerful ways for these customers to manage their energy usage without having to go to their computers,” said Jason Roeder, director of energy products and services for Powerhouse Dynamics.

The company said the eMonitor mobile app enables users to drill-down to see real-time equipment operating profiles. This allows, for example, a facility manager who receives a report of a malfunctioning rooftop unit to immediately view the status of the HVAC unit via a smartphone to determine the best course of action for resolving the issue, saving valuable time.

The latest eMonitor app release also provides other new features, including support for Powerhouse Dynamics’ commercial thermostat that enables up to eight different set points per day, giving managers greater ability to fine tune heating and cooling systems. “Many of our customers are now empowered to impress their own customers,” said Roeder. “For example, in the case of restaurant guests who feel too hot or too cold — the host can simply use his or her smartphone and make the adjustment on the spot.”

“With this new release of our eMonitor mobile app, we’re adding even more power to an already powerful mobile energy and asset management platform,” said Powerhouse CEO Martin Flusberg. “We’ve listened to our customers and understand how important it is for them to have access to control functions and detailed energy information from their mobile devices. This new release addresses many customer requests.”

The new eMonitor mobile app is available to eMonitor users for download for the iPhone from the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play.
