Telkonet, Inc. (OTC BB: TKOI.OB), developer of the revolutionary EcoSmart energy management platform incorporating patented Recovery Time™ technology announced that Pacific Energy Services & Facilities, Inc., a Telkonet partner, completed the sale and installation of an EcoSmart energy management solution at the 426-room Hyatt Place - Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The installation featured the first usage of the EcoRemote, an infrared transmitter developed by Telkonet to operate any remote-controlled HVAC unit with an on-the-wall thermostat.
Pacific Energy installed Telkonet's EcoRemote inside mini-split HVAC systems at the Hyatt Place to allow for convenient guest control from EcoSmart thermostats. Additionally, the EcoRemote enables Telkonet's patented Recovery Time™ technology to maximize energy savings in an unoccupied room without compromising guest comfort. Through Recovery Time™'s constant monitoring of an HVAC unit's ability to drive temperature and the real-time adjustment of setback temperature, rooms are never excessively hot or cold when a guest returns.

In addition to providing EcoRemote modules, Telkonet worked with Pacific Energy to install EcoWave intelligent thermostat packages, EcoView occupancy sensors and EcoContact door contacts.  The door contacts, installed on patio doors, stop in-room HVAC units from running when a patio door is open to prevent the units from being overworked and provide additional runtime savings.

"Telkonet continues to innovate with EcoSmart technology, constantly offering new ways to integrate energy management solutions and provide substantial energy savings," said Troy Hartmann, president of Pacific Energy. "The Hyatt - Waikiki is the fourth Chartres Lodging Group property on which Pacific Energy has collaborated with Telkonet, and I look forward to continuing that partnership."

The Hyatt Place - Waikiki includes the 191-room Pali Tower and the 235-room Diamond Head Tower, which makes the hotel the largest Hyatt Place in the United States. Both towers installed complete EcoSmart energy management solutions. Since installation in April of 2012, the Hyatt Place has saved over 455,000 kWh with EcoSmart.
