MILWAUKEE, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Telkonet, Inc., (OTCQB: TKOI), whose business divisions include EcoSmart™, an energy management technology platform featuring Recovery Time™ technology, and EthoStream®, one of the largest hospitality High-Speed Internet Access providers in the world, is pleased to announce its EcoSmart Technology has been selected for installation in the five-star Hilton Barra in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The EcoSmart system will be installed in 298 guest rooms. The EcoSmart energy management system was chosen for this [new] hotel build-out because of its ability to reduce energy consumption and equipment runtime by up to 45% while maintaining guests' comfort. The installation covers all of the hotel's 298 guest rooms [and all lobby and conference areas and meeting space].
The growing demand and increasing cost for energy raises concerns in social, economic and environmental fields, especially in developing countries. Economic growth, in countries such as Brazil, indicates projected strong growth in energy consumption.
The Hilton Barra, Rio de Janeiro is the first, newly constructed property for Hilton Hotels & Resorts in Latin America. The hotel includes 14,000 square feet of meeting space as well as other high-end amenities. Additionally, the Hilton Barra will be a sponsored hotel for travelers all around the world attending the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The hotel is located in close proximity to the planned Olympic Park. The Hilton Barra will open in November, 2014.
Telkonet's partner, Evolutix, worked diligently to secure the contract with the Hilton Barra, Rio de Janeiro. Evolutix demonstrated the numerous benefits and qualities of the EcoSmart product suite to the Hilton Barra's engineering team. As stated by Pedro Moreira, Chief Executive Officer at Evolutix, "Energy management systems are critical in the Brazilian market. As energy cost increases, so do operating expenses in new and existing buildings. We believe the EcoSmart technology is the perfect solution." Installation of the EcoSmart system will begin in September 2014. "The EcoSmart energy management system will provide the Hilton Barra, Rio de Janeiro considerable cost savings as a result of reduced energy consumption – achieving project payback in as little as 18 months," stated Chad Burow, Director of Sales and Marketing at Telkonet.
The EcoSmart suite of products will include the EcoInsight, a revolutionary energy management thermostat; the EcoView, in-room occupancy sensor; and the EcoConnect, providing a fully networked energy management solution. The hotel's Property Management System (PMS) will be interfaced with the EcoCentral Virtual Engineer™, the energy management command center that allow Telkonet's customer service team as well as property and asset managers the ability to monitor cost savings room-by-room.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
