Zen Ecosystems and Eyedro Green Solutions Inc. have announced a partnership to integrate Eyedro’s near real-time electricity monitoring equipment and software with Zen Ecosystems’ intelligent commercial energy management platform, Zen HQ. This integration will offer current and future Zen HQ customers access to more detailed energy-related data for optimizing electricity use.
Eyedro’s easy-to-install hardware and MyEyedro cloud software package enables Zen HQ to collect and transmit data at the individual load level in five-minute intervals. Zen HQ will analyze the usage across building operations and deliver insights through energy reports for facility management users to enhance lighting, ventilation, cooling, and other building operations. Eyedro is currently installed in 130+ countries.
“Energy management is a complex arena, with countless opportunities for greater efficiency, but transparency is key” said ZenEcosystems CEO, James McPhail. “Eyedro’s integration allows customers who are already saving with Zen HQ to monitor more and use actionable insights to make changes that improve their energy use, and ultimately, their bottom line.”
The first Zen Ecosystems and Eyedro-powered systems will be installed in multiple restaurant franchise locations as a part of a pilot program.
“Restaurant franchises have some of the slimmest margins in the business,” said Eyedro CEO Trevor Orton. “Diving deeper into new data streams with the Zen HQ and Eyedro integration will help businesses of all sizes identify energy drains. As we offer increasingly precise energy use data, we identify new opportunities to achieve electricity savings and support businesses’ bottom lines.”
Eyedro solutions will be offered in tiered packages and price points to Zen HQ customers over the next six months, and a simple user interface will be added prior to the full roll-out. The integration is estimated to provide 10-30% in savings for organizations.
