Earth Networks, Inc. Key Developments

Comcast Corporation and Earth Networks Bring Big Data Intelligence to Xfinity Home

Comcast Corporation announced a partnership with Earth Networks WeatherBug Home optimization software that will help Xfinity Home customers further reduce energy use and lower costs. Xfinity Home's EcoSaver to leverage WeatherBug Home offerings to automate home energy use and reduce consumer costs. WeatherBug Home will provide the data and analytics that power Xfinity Home's energy saving tool EcoSaver which learns the heating and cooling patterns of a home and makes automatic, incremental adjustments to the thermostat. Earth Networks processes 25 terabytes of hyper-local, real-time, proprietary weather data daily for 20 million unique consumers. Research shows weather is the biggest driver of home energy usage, and a recent study found that WeatherBug Home delivers three times higher consumer energy efficiency, providing 16.5% savings on home cooling when its capabilities integrate with a connected thermostat. The smart home is quickly becoming a reality, and when it comes to energy efficiency, knowledge is power. In addition to energy management, Xfinity Home customers can manage a wide range of home security and automation controls through one seamless platform, whether at home or on the go. Customers are also now able to add the following devices to their home automation system as part of the Works with Xfinity Home certification program: August Smart Lock, Chamberlain MyQ garage controller, Lutron Cas wireless controller and dimmer, and Nest Learning Thermostat. Additional devices and functionality will join Xfinity Home in 2016.

Earth Networks WeatherBug Mobile App Now Integrates with Honeywell Lyric Smart Thermostat

Earth Networks announced that the WeatherBug Home portion of its WeatherBug® mobile app now includes an integration with the Honeywell Lyric Thermostat – enabling Honeywell customers to see how the latest weather conditions impact their personal energy use, costs and comfort. The WeatherBug mobile app is one of the first integrations with the Honeywell Lyric API through its recently announced Connected Home open API program. On average, weather drives approximately 50% of a home’s energy use. By integrating WeatherBug’s real-time, hyper-local data and patent-pending algorithms, homeowners with Honeywell’s Lyric Thermostat can see in real-time how weather affects their energy use. These unique energy insights offer consumers improved energy efficiency, comfort and cost savings. The announcement deepens the Honeywell and Earth Networks’ WeatherBug Home program relationship. The joint initiative links big weather data and a home’s thermodynamic model with Honeywell’s Wi-Fi. By extending this capability to Honeywell Lyric customers, WeatherBug’s newest app now extends energy efficiency insights to an expanded set of customers. The newest WeatherBug release is now available for download on Android devices in the Google Play store. It will be available for iOS in Apple iTunes by December 15, 2015.

UNDP Selects Earth Networks to Strengthen Africa’s National Severe Weather Early Warning Systems

Earth Networks announced that it has been awarded a Long Term Agreement (LTA) by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to provide developing countries in Africa and beyond with goods and services for a National Meteorological and Hydrological Service Early Warning System to provide severe weather, nowcasting, monitoring and early warning to protect lives and property. Aiming to strengthen climate resilience, UNDP is assisting African countries to translate economic growth into long-lasting, inclusive human development. To support these challenges, Earth Networks, which has larger weather, lightning and greenhouse gas monitoring networks, was competitively selected to deliver a comprehensive Early Warning System that includes reliable and accurate data about current, near medium-term weather conditions via four major subsystems: a current conditions network, a severe weather nowcasting network, a weather forecasting solution and a weather and climate data display system. Earth Networks' Early Warning System is designed to strengthen weather infrastructures and reduce the impact of weather-related hazards on communities and economies. The establishment of this Early Warning System will help countries throughout Africa and beyond to mitigate the impact of extreme weather through real-time weather observations, high-resolution forecasts, and proxy weather radar. Earth Networks’ Early Warning System utilizes a cost-effective integrated approach, ensuring timely and accurate delivery of warnings and forecast information at a fraction of the cost of radar.
