Kontrol Energy, a leader in the energy efficiency and smart building sector through IoT, Cloud and SaaS technology is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic partnership with RF Controls LLC ("RFC").
RFC is a technology company bringing the promises and possibilities of the Internet of Things (IOT) to life by transforming the physical world into real-time data visibility using battery-free and cost-effective Radio-Frequency IDentification (RAIN RFID) tag technology.
Under the strategic partnership, Kontrol and RF Controls will jointly undertake efforts to promote and deploy the CS Smart Antenna Real-Time Location System (RTLS) integrated into Kontrol's energy and asset performance tracking software, to help customers improve operations and operating performance. By using low cost RAIN RFID tags, this integrated solution tells you where the asset is, when it's being used, and who is using it. CS Smart Antennas installed overhead, light up the entire floor area, providing wall to wall RTLS coverage of tagged assets automatically with no human interference. Manufacturers can confidently find items facility-wide, maximize throughput while minimizing delays, revolutionize accountability of inventory and validate safety procedures immediately.
Passive RTLS data enhances Kontrol's powerful cloud-based energy and facility management software, providing a simple and intuitive way to create automated alerts, reminders, closure mechanisms and full-audit-trails to ensure effort is only spent where it's required.
"The RFC technology provides the opportunity for our customers to optimize all facets of their manufacturing, logistics and supply chain," said Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol Energy.
"Kontrol's commitment to digitizing energy and making buildings and factories smarter aligns with our vision," said Tom Ellinwood, Founder and CEO of RF Controls. "We are excited to be a part of Kontrol's ecosystem of IoT applications and our joint solution has immediate revenue opportunities for both Kontrol and RFC."
