Boston, Mass., January 29, 2016
Powerhouse Dynamics, creator of the award-winning SiteSage asset and energy management platform for multi-site operators of small commercial facilities, and Weathermatic, makers of the SmartLink Wireless Landscape Network, today announced a partnership to bring Weathermatic’s commercial irrigation system onto the SiteSage platform.
SiteSage is used by thousands of restaurants, convenience stores, retailers, and other businesses across North and Central America and the Caribbean. Weathermatic’s water-saving technologies are used by thousands of commercial properties worldwide.
Jay Fiske, Vice President of Business Development for Powerhouse Dynamics, says, “This partnership represents a giant leap forward in our Commercial Internet of Things direction, expanding it to include irrigation along with the array of other equipment types that can already be managed effectively through SiteSage. Customers have told us that they want to take advantage of the efficiencies enabled by the Internet of Things without having to log in to multiple apps and software to deal with different types of equipment and different manufacturers. SiteSage is the unifying platform for critical equipment management in the commercial market. Weathermatic has been a leader in cutting-edge irrigation technologies for 70 years, so they are a terrific partner for us, and together, we are at the nexus of energy and water conservation.”
SiteSage is an enterprise-level asset and energy management system that allows users to control HVAC and other electrical loads centrally, remotely monitor equipment, and use patented analytics to diagnose performance issues and identify energy and water savings opportunities. SiteSage manages the performance of individual pieces of equipment across the enterprise through a cloud-based system that features low cost, easy installation, and intuitive mobile apps. With its Internet of Things platform, SiteSage pulls key data from a variety of equipment types, from ovens to HVAC systems and now to irrigation, and analyzes it continuously to produce alerts, recommendations, and other actionable information. This helps equipment manufacturers offer better service to their customers by using advanced, remote diagnostics, and helps customers better manage their operations and reduce costs.
Brodie Bruner, Executive Vice President for Weathermatic, says, “As the leading provider of intelligent irrigation systems, Weathermatic is constantly looking for opportunities to innovate and provide value to our customers. By integrating with SiteSage, the leading asset and energy management system for small commercial facilities, we are partnering with a firm that shares our passion for value-driven innovation. The combined SiteSage-Weathermatic offering delivers a comprehensive solution to those companies looking for a single platform to improve operating efficiencies and control water and energy consumption.”
The combined solution was developed in partnership with Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc., who uses both SiteSage and SmartLink at their U.S. corporate locations.
