Shoebill wins European Smart Metering Award


January 25th 2013

Eseye, an industry leader in M2M solutions, has seen off stiff competition in the smart metering field to win the Home Energy Monitor award for its green Shoebill energy monitor at this year’s European Smart Metering Awards.

Sponsored by O2, the annual event recognises excellence in the smart metering industry. Eseye’s award-winning device measures electricity consumption in a home or office and reports back through a secure server to a user’s smartphone or computer, helping companies and households work out how to cut back on their energy use and save money. The Shoebill is already in use at the UK’s largest independent student accommodation provider, Unite, which houses over 40,000 tenants nationwide.

CEO Julian Hardy collected the award at the gala dinner held at the Lancaster Hotel in London. “It was such a pleasure to receive the award. I won’t say a surprise because the whole team has put a huge amount of work into making Shoebill the fantastic product it is – one that’s already transforming businesses and helping them save money and go greener. I’m extremely proud to be part of such a hard-working team that’s consistently churning out bigger and better ideas and products. “It was a superb evening and was great to see companies getting the recognition they deserved for their innovative solutions.”

The latest accolade for the M2M specialist comes as the firm expands its workforce, having acquired hardware manufacturer Dataflex in November.
