Jun 15, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Wyless, a global M2M managed services provider, detailed some of its customers who delivered "green" machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions on the network of T Mobile USA.
From solar-powered, wireless parking meters that allow credit card payments to a web-based irrigation control system, the Company reported that the solutions from IPS Group, GreenRoad, Weathermatic and EDC Technologies are positively impacting our society both protecting the environment and saving money and time for businesses and consumers.
"When innovative 'green' M2M solutions are paired with Wyless' managed services and T-Mobile's nationwide network, lives can be enriched and the environment protected. This is M2M at its most rewarding," said Dan McDuffie, CEO at Wyless.
"Innovative connected devices are changing the way we live from the way we interact with our doctor or our vehicle to how we manage our energy efficiency or pay on-street parking meters," said Jeremy Korst, VP of wholesale (MVNO/M2M) at T-Mobile USA. "Not only do these 'green' solutions reinvigorate our commitment to have innovative solutions on our network, they dare us to dream about what is next. The possibilities are endless for M2M."
Solar-powered connected parking meters
The solar-powered connected parking meters from IPS Group allow users to pay with coins, a credit card, or a reusable, rechargeable parking 'debit card.' In addition to customer convenience and "green" technology, these meters offer lower maintenance and operating costs for municipalities nationwide.
Safety and fuel consumption manager for fleets
With a technology-based personalized driver performance solution, like the GreenRoad Driver Improvement Loop, organizations see improved efficiencies, reductions in fuel costs as high as 12 percent, as well as reduced emissions. Furthermore, with the GreenRoad solution, risk is reduced and safety improved with real-time driver feedback, resulting in fewer crashes.
Web-based irrigation control system
For commercial and municipal properties, web-based irrigation control systems and wireless controllers, such as the SmartLink Network from Weathermatic, can reduce water consumption and provide significant water bill savings. Users of SmartLink can monitor and control irrigation, respond to system alerts, and generate monthly reports on water usage and savings all from a connected smartphone, PC or tablet.
Energy conservation through advanced hot water controller technology
With advanced hot water controller technology, EDC Technology clients, include Natural Gas Utilities, property management companies, hotel owners, restaurants and senior care facilities, not only achieve significant energy savings, but they are also provided with remote and proactive monitoring which records of the nuances of day to day usage looking for system anomalies and performance irregularities. This proactive approach ensures that cost effective changes can be achieved long term providing true sustainability. Among the many recognitions their technology has received, EDC Technologies was awarded Gold for its Hot Water Controller at the 2011 Connected World M2M Value Chain Awards.
