Candi Controls, creator of a unifying framework for smart device data, and smart grid technology developer IPKeys have partnered to connect OpenADR 2.0b-certified communications from the smart grid to a multitude of everyday devices in homes and commercial buildings.

According to Candi, the integration of IPKeys' OpenADR 2.0b-certified EISSClient 2.0 technology with Candi's PowerTools data framework allows price and demand signals from the smart grid to reach a large selection of thermostats, lights, load switches, solar power and appliance products.

"This collaboration will help simplify and propagate demand response-based energy efficiency to millions of off-the-shelf commercial and consumer devices via the latest OpenADR data profile, benefiting energy consumers and utilities alike," says Candi CEO Steve Raschke.
