GERMANTOWN, Md. - Telkonet Inc., a provider of centrally managed solutions for integrated energy management, networking, building automation, and proactive support services, was granted four new patents, augmenting its overall total to 12.

The patents reflect Telkonet’s development of networking methods, using powerline communications technology (PLC) in commercial and residential multi-dwelling (MDU) properties. Telkonet has also received a patent for its advanced thermostat design, incorporated within the Telkonet SmartEnergy™ in-room, occupancy-driven energy management system, which reduces HVAC costs by eliminating wasted heating and cooling of vacant rooms, said the company.

“We are consistently looking for new ways to enhance the efficiency and performance of our products, and invest extensively in this activity,” said Jason Tienor, president and CEO of Telkonet.

“These new patents are important additions to an already strong portfolio. Telkonet’s commitment to innovate is central to our success, keeping us at the forefront of the hospitality, MDU, education, and utility markets.”

Telkonet SmartEnergy realizes tangible energy savings by deploying Telkonet Energy Management Occupancy Sensors with smart, programmable Telkonet Energy Management Thermostats or Telkonet Energy Management Controllers, to adjust and maintain a room’s temperature according to occupancy, and avoiding any unnecessary heating or cooling of vacant rooms. Additionally, the system reduces the run-time for HVAC equipment, decreasing maintenance overheads and extending the equipment’s working life.
