Telkonet, Inc. provides innovative intelligent automation platforms at the forefront of the Internet of Things (IoT) space. Helping commercial audiences better manage operational costs, the Company’s EcoSmart intelligent automation platform is supported by a full-suite of IoT-connected devices that provide in-depth energy usage information and analysis, allowing building operators to reduce energy expenses. Vertical markets that benefit from EcoSmart products include hospitality, education, military, government, healthcare and multiple dwelling housing.
Telkonet is also proud to announce the Symphony platform. A one-of-a-kind solution that improves the ability to easily integrate, deploy and commission Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions for commercial markets. One of the most difficult problems with IoT deployments is the ability to select products from multiple vendors that use individual communication transports and protocols and successfully pair these products into one convenient software platform for management and reporting. In addition, issues caused during deployment that delay completion, caused by an inability to test and commission the project can exacerbate the difficulty and frustration with commercial IoT projects.
Telkonet’s Symphony platform was developed from the ground up to alleviate these issues by creating a layer of obfuscation for commercial IoT deployments. Through the provisioning of Telkonet’s multi-wireless gateway offering Bluetooth, WiFi, ZigBee, Cellular and Ethernet, Symphony enables disparate products and services to connect with one common platform throughout deployment. The Symphony Composer provides a GUI interface for choosing individual devices to install into specific room types and selecting which attributes of those devices interact with the other devices in room. Finally, the Symphony Conductor is an offsite single-pane-of-glass interface to assist with deployment and testing that’s able to function without an existing Internet connection, ideal for new-build environments. The Symphony Conductor provides a comprehensive test and commission report that ensures an installation is successfully completed and identifies possible issues that may have existed prior to the IoT deployment for remediation and repair.
Symphony was created as an evolutionary tool from an understanding of existing deficiencies with equipment, communication, software, process and deployments, and provides resolutions for these shortcomings in new IoT deployments moving forward.
