TXU Energy Partners With Alarm.com Subsidiary to Enhance Value of Thermostat
EnergyHub’s platform provides customers with greater control of and savings from connected thermostats, according to the company.
DALLAS – TXU Energy, which introduced the first two-way, Internet-enabled thermostat in Texas’ competitive electricity market, announces a new partnership to give customers even faster connections with and greater control over their home and business environments.
The agreement with energy management and demand response software platform provider EnergyHub builds on the success TXU Energy has achieved with its TXU iThermostat and demand response program. A subsidiary of Alarm.com, EnergyHub’s platform provides customers with greater control of and savings from connected thermostats, according to the company.
The enhancements include the addition of location-based thermostat adjustments to ensure automated energy savings and comfort. With location-based controls, customers can program their thermostats to reduce heating and cooling system usage while they are away, and to start up those systems as they move closer toward their homes and businesses.
The settings can be customized to meet each customer’s preferences and can be set for multiple devices in the same household, according to the company. Some other Internet-enabled thermostats are tied to one mobile device, reducing flexibility and potential savings opportunities.
“TXU Energy is clearly focused on a superior customer experience,” says EnergyHub Co-Founder and President Seth Frader-Thompson. “The company is deliberate about creating relevant value for customers and is committed to driving smart innovation in North America’s most competitive market. That’s a perfect match for us, and we’re excited to help TXU Energy deliver for Texans.”
TXU Energy introduced the TXU iThermostat in 2009 to help customers minimize wasteful electricity consumption and to help reduce pressure on the state’s power grid during periods of extremely high usage.
“EnergyHub is well positioned to help us deliver an even better customer experience through its innovative online tools, mobile capabilities and installation services,” says TXU Energy COO Scott Hudson.
