Telkonet has announced a partnership with hospitality management firm and developer OTO Development for the installation of its EcoSmart energy management platform at the Hyatt Place Los Angeles International Airport in California, US.

Hyatt Palace is slated to be opened in the last quarter of 2012 will include Telkonet’s EcoInsight intelligent thermostats that help reduce running time of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) devises thereby conserving energy in unoccupied rooms.

OTO Development VP of purchasing & technology George Rutledge said the company considered a stand-alone energy management system but the benefits associated with a networked solution compelled us them reconsider and with EcoSmart energy management platform their staff will be able to track HVAC efficiency, monitor energy savings, and make changes to thermostat settings from any web-connected device.

"We believe our networked EcoSmart solution will bring a new level of real-time energy management capabilities to OTO so HVAC issues can be addressed in a precise manner and guest comfort assured," added Telkonet’s Executive VP of global sales and marketing Gerrit Reinders.

According to the company EcoSmart traditionally provides energy savings of 20% to 40% and it could be higher when coupled with the hotel’s Property Management System.
