BOULDER, Colo. (June 24, 2020) — Siemens and Copper Labs today announced that Copper Labs has joined the growing Siemens Connect Ecosystem, which connects experts in this innovative network of business and solution developers.
“The Siemens Connect Ecosystem is at the forefront of promoting collaboration and sharing best practices, and we’re thrilled to join the incredible roster that Siemens has built,” said Dan Forman, CEO of Copper Labs. “Better management of energy usage requires better monitoring, and we look forward to helping Siemens better serve its customers through real-time visibility behind the meter to save money and reduce strains on the grid.”
Copper Labs provides information, automation and controls to help individuals manage energy use in their homes for comfort and cost savings. At the same time, deployment of the joint solution across smart communities helps utility partners engage targeted customers when it matters most to the grid, natural gas and water distribution systems.
The Siemens Connect Ecosystem convenes the tools, processes, training and support necessary for third-party solution providers to successfully create solutions that integrate seamlessly with Siemens’ platforms, including Desigo CC, the APOGEE Automation System and related platforms.
“As more and more connected devices enable us to deliver on the promises of a truly intelligent building, organizations must be able to adapt quickly and advance smart building operations and performance. The Siemens Connect Ecosystem is our answer to this digital transformation, which lets us all create places perfectly designed for their purpose,” says Brad Haeberle, VP of Solutions and Service at Siemens.
