Ottawa – September 8th, 2020 – Smart building solution provider 1VALET officially announced a strategic partnership and integration with ecobee, a leader in smart home devices. The partnership will see ecobee become 1VALET’s preferred Canadian smart thermostat partner.
With the continued rollout of 1VALET’s Smart Building Ecosystem, the partnership will see a full integration of the 1VALET platform with ecobee’s SmartThermostat, ecobee3 lite, and SmartBuildings thermostat management solution. This will allow 1VALET to offer an energy-saving, sustainable solution for centralized remote control of smart thermostats in the multi-residential space.
“With a SmartBuildings API tailored specifically towards the high-rise multi-residential market, ecobee is far ahead of its competition.” said 1VALET VP of Operations Brandon Vaters. “This partnership will allow us to deliver unparalleled value to our customers.”
Along with providing property operators with remote control of every thermostat in a community, the partnership also opens the door to significant energy and operational savings, as well as asset protection. A third party study conducted by Low Carbon Logistics conservatively estimates a 5% reduction in heating & cooling costs for residential suites, and 10% reduction in heating & cooling costs for common areas.
