Universal PropTech has entered into an agreement with Strato Automation to be an official systems integrator of Strato building automation products, systems and cloud solutions in Ontario, Canada.
Chris Hazelton, president and CEO of Universal PropTech, said: “Building automation is at the core of our business, and access to Strato intelligent building solutions enables Universal PropTech to be far more competitive in light commercial and multi-unit residential buildings with immediate capabilities to integrate artificial intelligence.”
“Majority of buildings in North America are small and medium size and do not have building automation systems. Those buildings have fewer opportunities to reduce their energy spend, and Strato allows us to attack a massive under-served market with a very competitive offering,” said Frank Carnevale, chief growth officer of Universal PropTech.
As a non-exclusive systems integrator, the company will utilize Strato solutions to compete for the building automation systems in under-served mid-size buildings in Ontario. Mid-size buildings, light-commercial and multi-unit residential buildings generally do not have building automation systems, thus are less energy efficient than large and enterprise-wide buildings. Such buildings include condominiums, hotels, seniors housing and apartment buildings, the firm said.
With Strato installations, the company will have the immediate capability to utilize artificial intelligence to generate energy efficiencies in customers’ buildings.
