Quotes from recent press releases illustrate the value of Telkonet's proven EcoSmart energy management solution.
We evaluated a number of solutions during our search for an effective room management system that could significantly reduce waste energy in our guestrooms without impacting our guests' experience. We found that the Recovery Time technology employed in the EcoSmart system with its automated dynamic setback added to ease of installation in a retrofit scenario, the savings it can bring to engineering costs, and many other great features more than exceeded our initial requirements.

After a series of trial installations and competitive product comparisons, we arrived at the decision to use EcoSmart to significantly reduce HVAC energy consumption without affecting the guest experience. EcoSmart will assist Motel 6/Studio 6 in meeting sustainability goals, in addition to making maintenance uncomplicated for our regional maintenance engineers. The components of the fully networked EcoSmart solution at each property can be viewed from the EcoCentral management platform, allowing for remote troubleshooting and investigation.

Telkonet's EcoSmart energy management enables Galt House Hotel to continue a decades-long trend of technological innovation to improve the guest experience. Before selecting an energy management system, we had a checklist of requirements, including: maximize our energy efficiency, improve our proactive maintenance capability, and offer guests a hotel stay uninterrupted by temperature or HVAC issues. Ultimately, we selected EcoSmart, and I am very pleased with the decision--EcoSmart exceeds our expectations on all counts.
Slater Coe, Director of Operations, Galt House Hotel

The transition from our old system to EcoSmart was painless, as the installation included a simple thermostat replacement and the addition of EcoSense remote occupancy sensors in each of the 145 guestrooms. Shortly after the EcoSmart wireless network equipment was installed, each of our guestrooms was online, ready for us to view and manage. Telkonet's basic system training and intuitive web interface gave us the confidence to begin using the system immediately.
Mark Everton, General Manager, Waterfront Hotel, Oakland, CA
After becoming familiar with how flexible and effective the EcoSmart System is, we decided to deploy the system in Potter and Sereno Halls ourselves. Our HVAC shop is now equipped to program and maintain EcoSmart in house, and we are moving forward with additional installations immediately. EcoSmart products provide excellent energy savings, but they also provide a huge upgrade to resident experience when compared with traditional fan coil controls - they don't just save energy, they look great too.

Currently, only about one-fifth of Marriott hotels have an energy management system, a situation that we are aggressively seeking to improve with partners such as Telkonet. Our global sustainability goals include further reductions in energy and water consumption of 20 percent by 2020 and we believe that Telkonet is poised to help us meet and exceed these energy reduction initiatives at any Marriott property. Telkonet has proven to be extremely reliable, innovative and service-oriented while their products are very guest-friendly.
