Colleges spend billions on energy expenditures every year. A typical dorm room is vacant approximately 70% of an average day. With the right management system, costs can be greatly reduced.
Students can use their smartphones to adjust temperature and turn on/off lights with the touch of a button. If a student decides to take a spontaneous trip home or leave campus, they can make temperature adjustments – remotely.
An additional feature – the app also allows students to enter programmable schedules and enable geolocation triggers on their smartphone. This way, when a student walks back into his or her dorm room, the EcoSmart Mobile app will automatically begin heating or cooling the room for maximum comfort.
