At the 2016 AHR Expo, Ayla Networks, the #1 IoT platform for HVAC OEMs, will highlight the benefits of real-world connected products built using its Internet of Things (IoT) platform technology. The AHR Expo is taking place in Orlando, Florida, January 25 to 27.

In its Booth 4594, Ayla will display some of their customers’ HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration) products, including smart thermostats from United Technologies and Johnson Controls; Dimplex multi-room controller and wall heater; Salus smart thermostat and energy monitor; A.O. Smith smart water heater; EcoWater smart water softener; and new smart air conditioning products from Fujitsu General and leading Chinese manufacturers TCL and Changhong.

“As the #1 IoT platform provider in most manufacturing categories, we’ve seen a big increase in IoT connectivity in the HVACR realm even since last year’s AHR Expo,” said David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks. “Manufacturers are not only launching new smart connected versions of their products, they’re also gaining greater appreciation for the real value of the IoT and connectivity, which lies in the data generated by the connected products.”

Ayla representatives will be on hand to discuss how HVACR products can be connected using Ayla’s IoT platform, which helps manufacturers get secure, reliable connected products to market faster, less expensively, and with less effort and hassle. In the booth and during speaking sessions, company representatives will also explain how the data generated by connected products can be used to provide manufacturers with important business insights that they can use to improve their products, services and relationships with end users.
