WiFiPlus+ is the future of Wi-Fi networks - Dick Sherwin, CEO of Spot On Networks
New Haven, CT (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Spot On Networks, LLC (“SON”) today announced the launch of a new service: WiFiPlus+. WiFiPlus+ combines fully managed and monitored Wi-Fi networks with wireless energy management, building automation and security monitoring for the multifamily, hospitality and commercial industries.
The benefits to buildings and communities are two-fold. The fully managed Wi-Fi backbone allows properties to offer the necessary Wi-Fi Internet amenity to patrons without having to manage Internet service issues, worry about bandwidth or offer customer support. In addition, the Wi-Fi backbone allows for energy management, building automation and security monitoring, wirelessly, which replaces the need for more expensive wired systems. Buildings can experience significant utility cost reduction, up to 25%, by implementing an energy management system, which often allows for the property to offer the much desired Wi-Fi amenity for free.
Energy management allows properties to remotely monitor their energy usage, pinpoint areas of high usage and control HVAC via mobile device applications. Building automation allows for property managers or individual guests/ residents to control virtually every aspect of home living, including temperature controls, appliance controls, A/V equipment, lighting, blinds and more. Security monitoring allows for remote video monitoring of entire properties or individual residences via mobile applications. These three Wi-Fi backbone applications allow for buildings to implement these systems at significantly less cost than wired systems. Wi-Fi backbone applications can be installed in new buildings or retrofit.
SON recently announced the deployment of a WiFiPlus+ system at Rudin Management, Inc.’s 130 West 12th Street apartment homes. “Providing energy monitoring and control functions in our buildings helps to engage the condominium owner, reduce carbon footprint, honor our corporate responsibility to the city in which we live, and do well by doing good,” according to John J. Gilbert, III, Rudin’s Chief Operating Officer. He went on to add: “These advanced technology systems and services that benefit condominium owners, including energy management and wireless services, will eventually be like the elevators required in a high rise building”.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our WiFiPlus+ services. WiFiPlus+ is the future of Wi-Fi networks. All buildings need Wi-Fi; WiFiPlus+ allows properties to benefit from offering Wi-Fi, reduce their carbon footprint, experience huge energy cost reductions, all while outfitting their property with a future-proofed Wi-Fi solution”, said Dick Sherwin, SON’s, CEO.
