Empire Communities taps Enercare tech

January 2, 2019

Enercare has announced a partnership with one of North America’s largest homebuilders, Empire Communities, to become their official smart home provider and installer.

Enercare Smarter Home technology will be installed in over 1,300 new homes being constructed by Empire across Ontario in the next two years. Each of these homes will be equipped with the Enercare Smarter Home essentials package, which includes a comprehensive suite of smart home products.

Each home will be equipped with the Enercare Smarter Home Hub, which collects and analyzes the data from all the home’s devices, making sense of the information and then sending it out to Enercare’s mobile app. Homeowners can also control their heating and cooling, even while away, with the smart thermostat, while leak sensors reduce the risk of serious water damage. HVAC equipment is also monitored continuously to ensure it is operating efficiently and to spot issues before they become problems.

As an added benefit, for each new Empire home equipped with Enercare Smarter Home, the essentials package will also include a free Google Home Mini, allowing homeowners to control the system using voice control.
