Telkonet, Inc. (OTC BB: TKOI), developer of the revolutionary EcoSmart energy management platform featuring Recovery Time™ technology, announced that the company signed a Master Purchase Agreement approving EcoSmart for installation in corporate-owned Motel 6 and Studio 6 locations across the United States and Canada.

"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," said Renee Swoger, director of energy & capital administration, Motel 6/Studio 6.

The Master Agreement will initiate a multi-year rollout to approximately 600 Motel 6 & Studio 6 locations in North America. To date, Telkonet has installed its EcoSmart technology throughout seven Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties including Motel 6 locations in Hartford/Southington, Conn.; Hartford/Windsor Locks, Conn.; New London/Niantic, Conn.; Lewisville, Texas; Northlake/Speedway, Texas; and Studio 6 locations in Greensboro, N.C. and Kissimmee, Fla.

Telkonet will perform turnkey installations at the Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties, providing the EcoWave wireless thermostat package and necessary networking equipment as energy management upgrades are scheduled.

"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," Swoger said.

While controlling the HVAC system to optimize operation and energy savings, the EcoWave thermostat records detailed occupancy and HVAC usage data. This provides hotel management with room occupancy patterns and percentages correlated with HVAC system efficiency and runtime hours saved, as well as HVAC unit health statistics.

"Our initial installations at the Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties signify the company's intent to redefine the brand as sustainable and innovative while still maintaining a reputation for guest convenience," said Jason Tienor, CEO of Telkonet. "By maximizing energy efficiency without compromising room comfort, EcoSmart provides a simple, yet advanced and proven solution."
