Encycle Announces SwarmStat, Honeywell Total Connect Comfort Partnership
Encycle now offers its cloud-based Swarm Logic to OEM energy control vendors
SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Encycle has announced its new SwarmStat™ service and its collaboration with Honeywell as a Total Connect Comfort partner. Encycle is Honeywell’s first smart thermostat partner to focus exclusively on solutions for commercial and industrial customers.
Encycle has already integrated Honeywell thermostats into its EASE (Energy as a Service by Encycle™) solution for a nationwide restaurant and entertainment business. With customer satisfaction being a top priority, it was crucial that Encycle’s solution lower electricity costs while ensuring patrons’ comfort. What started out as a six-site pilot program has now developed into a 17-site portfolio with over 300 thermostats. In 2016 alone, Encycle added over $80,000 in utility cost savings to the customer’s bottom line. The benefits of integrating Encycle’s patented Swarm Logic™ technology with the features of Honeywell’s thermostats have been so effective that the chain has standardized this platform for every one of its new locations.
Encycle’s newest solution, the SwarmStat service, provides all the benefits of EASE using only Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled thermostats. Honeywell’s Wi-Fi thermostat family is the first deployment platform offered.
One of Encycle’s largest nationwide retailers is piloting SwarmStat to confirm that it meets its performance and payback criteria in utilities with very low tariffs and no demand response programs. This could lead to a rollout of approximately 1,500 thermostats from one customer alone.
“SwarmStat is our first ‘Swarm in a Cloud’ product, where we are working with major thermostat and building management system OEMs,” said Bob Chiste, Encycle’s CEO. “Our goal is to enable energy management hardware vendors to enjoy the benefits of our cloud-based Swarm Logic service.”
