This leads directly to insights you can act on, which ultimately results in real energy savings and cost savings for the consumer. In the coming months, HCA will work with energy management industry leaders to build solutions that pave the way for energy solutions for the whole home.

Dedicated to consumer innovation

The interoperability of smart home devices and long-life appliances provides consumers with more choices and options within their connected home environment. HCA’s consumer benefits include:
