Shark Tank investor Robert Herjavec hit a home run with Keen Home. The cyber-security king lauds the Smart Vent maker as one of the most successful investments he’s made on ABC’s Emmy-winning business reality show.
Modern ductwork systems in homes are really anything but modern. But that's changing for the better with companies like Keen Home. Keen has come out with a line now available at Lowes, that actually allows each air vent to intelligently play a part in whole house comfort.
Using the design to regulate your home’s temperature room by room, the Smart Vent seeks to increase comfort and reduce energy costs. The smart element to the vents is intelligently distributing the airflow within your home.
Working in tandem with the smart thermostats, Keen Home’s new Smart Vents retrofit existing vents in your home and then connect to your wireless network to create an in-home system that individually heats or cools each room as needed.
For consumers who don’t own a Lowe’s Iris Smart Hub, a SmartThings Hub, or a Nest thermostat, the company launched a Smart Bridge to deliver smartphone control of Keen’s Smart Vent system.
"Keen Home's founders came to the tank seeking $750,000 for 10 percent of their company, equating to one of the largest valuations in Shark Tank history."
The Keen Home smart vent keeps you from wasting energy—and money—on areas of your house that don't need as much attention. Installing the Keen on a few strategic vents throughout a house could lead to big savings. Sounds smart to us.
