Echelon networking technology enables end-users to remotely connect, monitor, control, sense, and diagnose intelligent devices. LonWorks networks simplify system management, conserve energy, improve operations and reduce costs.
LonWorks solutions provide a unique opportunity for manufacturers of daily devices to offer new, revenue-generating services, gain useful data about their products improve brand value, and increase customer retention. For example, manufacturers of dishwashers, washing machines, and other appliances can collect usage data from LonWorks devices that can be used to increase sales as well as improve coming product features. They can use the network connection to add new functionality to their products over time with fee upgrades, pay-per-use, or as a free incentive to build customer loyalty. With remote diagnostic capabilities providers can anticipate appliance failures and trigger service calls, reducing down time for consumers.
