MILWAUKEE, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Telkonet, Inc. (OTC BB: TKOI.OB), developer of the revolutionary EcoSmart energy management platform incorporating patented Recovery Time™ technology, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with the Gustave A. Larson Company, a leading wholesale distributor of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration equipment, parts and supplies.
The distribution agreement provides the Gustave A. Larson Company with access to the complete EcoSmart energy management solution; a suite of products that has already been deployed in well over 200,000 rooms.
The hardwired EcoInsight and wireless EcoWave intelligent thermostats provide a foundation for Telkonet's EcoSmart technology. Using industry-standard ZigBee wireless communications protocol, the thermostats create a reliable wireless mesh network to communicate with other EcoSmart devices, such as EcoView external occupancy sensors, EcoContact door and window contacts, EcoGuard outlets and EcoSwitch light switches. The individual components of the solution communicate through the thermostats, and can be controlled from any web-connected device such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Scott Larson, President of the Gustave A. Larson Company, said, "The vision of our company revolves around providing innovative solutions. The energy management technology behind EcoSmart certainly aligns with our vision, and I anticipate EcoSmart products will move quickly through our distribution network. Telkonet has already begun providing training courses to the sales and design teams in our offices."
Gerrit Reinders, Executive Vice President of Sales at Telkonet, said, "We are pleased to partner with the Gustave A. Larson Company. Telkonet will benefit from their reputation for customer service and long-standing relationships with well-respected design and contracting providers. I believe their deep market reach, highly skilled staff and extensive client base will facilitate the recognition and adoption of EcoSmart products."
The Gustave A. Larson Company, with United Team Mechanical as contractor, has recently contracted to install a complete EcoSmart energy management solution at the Park Regency Resort in Park City, Utah.
