AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Allure Energy, Inc. today announced that their patented Proximity Control™ Technology will soon be available for purchase directly by consumers. Allure Energy has the first truly automated home environment/energy management system.
Using Allure Mobile™, a smart phone application that works on select iPhone™ and iPad™ devices, Allure Mobile manages energy use based on how far, or near, each user may be from their home. As homeowners leave their residence, the temperature of their home is altered based on how far away they are from home. As they return, Allure Mobile automatically creates the environment they want.
"People want comfort and savings, without having to work for it," says Kevin Imes, President and CEO of Allure Energy. "Homeowners no longer have to program thermostats, or learn how to use complex home automation systems to manage their energy use. They just set their preferences and automatically enjoy comfort while saving money and being environmentally responsible."
Using a secure Internet connection and wireless thermostat, Allure Energy creates an ideal home environment using proprietary location-based control technology running on the user's smart phone.
"A lot of people today are concerned with privacy issues surrounding new smart meters," says Kevin Imes, "so we created secure Internet and wireless technologies to ensure privacy. When used with our mobile app that features Allure's patented Zone Based Proximity Control Technology, adjustments are determined on the user's smart phone based on their current location. We never have to send the user's location into the cloud, ensuring their privacy."
Allure Energy will begin offering its solution in early 2012.
