NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Whisker Labs, developer of advanced home intelligence technologies, today announced that it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Home Energy Monitoring Sensor. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
Whisker Labs’ breakthrough home energy monitoring sensor and home intelligence software platform deliver real-time power usage and diagnostic information for HVACs and home appliances to provide customers with performance deterioration trends and predictive insights on imminent failures. Home service providers can offer these capabilities to consumers through Whisker Labs’ ASSURESM– a scalable residential HVAC service that increases customer satisfaction, improves brand awareness through systematic engagement, and reduces home service providers' operational costs.
In selecting Whisker Labs as an award honoree, the Consumer Technology Association recognized its introduction of the first ever whole-home energy sensing device that does not require an electrician for installation. The phone-sized sensor installs quickly and safely on the electrical panel/breaker box that connects to the consumer’s wifi, so that data can be turned into information and alerts on HVAC and subsequently, all major home appliances.
“99 percent of appliances and devices in the home are not connected, which means that households have no way of knowing if their HVAC or other home appliances are ailing or failing,” said Amena Ali, chief revenue officer, Whisker Labs. “Through the real-time data from our Energy Sensor and software analytics that identify the electrical signature of each HVAC system, we track and analyze performance and look for impending faults, so our home service partners can deliver unmatched assurance to their consumers. Our service will become the check-engine light for HVAC and other critical home appliances.”
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, the owner and producer of CES 2018, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Whisker Labs’ sensor and platform will be displayed at CES 2018, which runs January 9-12, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market. CES 2018 Innovation Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, description, photo and URL.
