Iota Communications, Inc. (OTC PINK:IOTC), a wireless communication and data analytics software company is pleased to announce a marketing alliance with The Stone House Group, LLC, a Bethlehem, PA-based facility consulting firm, to collectively bring high-value, smart building services to the K-12, college and university market throughout the U.S.

IotaComm's smart building technology solutions, with reliable and ubiquitous low-power wide area connectivity coupled with its BrightAI™ data analytics platform, are a great complement to Stone House Group's energy, sustainability, commissioning, healthy/well services and planning, services. Together, the companies provide unique combined value to the education facilities marketplace to reduce energy costs, increase well-being and health of occupants and advance sustainability initiatives.

The companies plan to build on several recent customer engagements, including Friends Seminary in New York City, where the recently published case study demonstrates the power of the combined efforts for this K-12 private school that leveraged indoor air quality sensors and analytics to improve the health and well-being of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We are very excited about this alliance with The Stone House Group as they bring our BrightAI™ smart building solutions into the significant K-12 and higher education markets" said IotaComm CEO Terrence DeFranco. Owners and managers of real estate are challenged with balancing efficiency and sustainability with health and safety in a post-COVID environment and we are delighted to partner with a firm with significant expertise and a great reputation with their nationwide customer base. The growing need for assuring a safe environment for teachers, students and other employees is met with our cutting-edge smart building platform. We look forward to many more collaborative opportunities."

"In the post pandemic environment people yearn for a return to "normalcy" and also desire assurances that the air inside is safe. This alliance allows for cost effective information that SHG can use to monitor and quantify indoor air quality" added The Stone House Group's Managing Principal and founder Larry Eighmy. "In addition, IotaComm's connectivity and data analytics platform supports our retro commissioning, continuous commissioning, energy auditing and measurement and verification services and is a real game changer for us and our clients and we look forward to continuing to bring these innovative solutions to our clients."

IotaComm's BrightAI™ wireless connectivity and data analytics platform brings indoor air quality and energy management data monitoring and analysis to Stone House's customer base, which includes hundreds of private and public schools, universities, hospitals, municipalities, and commercial properties. The strategic alliance calls for the two companies to collaborate to develop additional products and services that accelerate the adoption of smart building technology to optimize healthy indoor air and energy performance. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there are multiple studies that demonstrate the negative impact of poor indoor air quality and environmental conditions in schools for students, teachers, and administrators, even prior to the onset of COVID-19. The rise in awareness around these conditions has spurred advances in regulations and standards around environmental conditions, including the WELL Building Standard®, FitWell, Living Building Challenge and LEED.
