Leviton Introduces the Dollars & Sensors Online Energy Audit Tool
MELVILLE, N.Y., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Leviton today introduced the Dollars & Sensors (D&S) Online Energy Audit Tool for lighting retrofit applications. Dollars & Sensors is available as both a desktop application as well as via mobile device, effectively turning Android, Apple, Blackberry and Windows smart devices into an instant energy audit tool.
Leviton's D&S is a powerful sales tool that makes audits simpler and easier when compared to alternative methods. Leviton saves lighting professionals time and removes the guesswork from conducting energy audits and generating return on investment reports and analyses by providing a customizable bill of materials for each project. This allows distributors, contractors and other lighting professionals to deliver a cost-effective Leviton solution to their customers faster with a clearly communicated demonstration of the potential energy savings and return on investment.
Dollars & Sensors streamlines the energy audit process to save lighting professionals time and money spent on audit and proposal generation. This all-in-one tool allows professionals to use a smart device to effectively conduct a sensor energy audit as they walk through a space with key decision makers. The simple interface for Dollars & Sensors intuitively guides users on how to easily input audit information using a smart device. Basic audit information includes inputting room size, existing lights and energy saving Leviton sensor and LevNet RF Energy Harvesting Wireless products in use.
The desktop version of Dollars & Sensors allows users to configure projects with utility rates, labor rates, rebates and incentives which are taken into account in the energy savings calculations and analyses. It is used to manage multiple projects and generate a submittal package, including:
- Return on investment reports and analyses
- Modifiable bill of materials that can be saved as a PDF or sent as a private link to customers
- Cover letter customized with customer information and project energy savings summary
As an added advantage, Dollars & Sensors is compatible with the Leviton Light Logger tool, which monitors and logs changes in the lighting and occupancy in a space to forecast energy and cost savings as well as validate energy savings after installation. This actual room data is imported into the Dollars & Sensors tool and is taken into account to calculate energy savings and analyses.
"By combining Dollars & Sensors with our in-house application engineering design expertise and no cost sensor layout services, Leviton is able to quickly and easily provide high performance solutions that deliver immediate savings and returns on investments," said Richard Westfall, vice president and general manager, Leviton Lighting & Energy Solutions. "Leviton is truly the single source for improving energy efficiency and taking the guesswork out of energy management projects."
