Allure Energy Awarded Fifth Patent on Proximity Control Technology

The current issued patent covers the ability to enable proximity control of a smart energy device using a smartphone

AUSTIN, Texas, May 11, 2012 -- Allure Energy, Inc. has been awarded its fifth patent on their Proximity Control Technology, with plans to grow its portfolio to over 75 patent applications by year end.


On May 8th, 2012, Allure Energy was awarded United States Patent 8,174,381, adding to its portfolio of nearly 40 pending and issued patents. The current issued patent covers the ability to enable proximity control of a smart energy device using a smartphone. Proximity control allows for use of location-based services to automatically adjust thermostats, alarms systems, lights and other smart devices that are installed in a home or other locations.

"We have been the pioneers of proximity control technologies for several years now," says Kevin Imes, CEO of Allure Energy. "With the significant investment we have made in the research and development of proximity control technologies, we will be able to accelerate the adoption of smart energy devices for the everyday consumer."

"Mainstream consumers don't want to have to think about how to manage their energy use, they want it done automatically for them," says Kevin Imes. "With proximity control, we are able to simplify a consumers life while helping them save money on their monthly energy bills."

As a client of the firm Dickinson Wright PLLC, Allure Energy has secured over 40 U.S. pending and issued patents, with 10 International Patent Applications filed in over 10 countries and all of Europe. Since the introduction of EverSense, a proximity-controlled energy management system with multi-media output capabilities, Allure Energy is staged to grow its portfolio to over 75 pending and issued patents by year end.

"Our development team continues to create innovative solutions that are unparalleled in the smart technology industry," says Kevin Imes. "I am proud of our team and what they have accomplished over such a short period of time. As an emerging growth company, we challenge ourselves daily to continue to be innovate, and to create value added solutions for our customers."
