Company Introduction

HiberSense is a CES and TechHome award winning technology startup based in Pittsburgh solving a problem we have all felt, being hot or cold in your own home. It should be comfortable for you, based on how you like your space, not the temperature in the hallway where the thermostat is. HiberSense makes sure that you're comfortable in every room. Never worry about hot and cold rooms again! And the best part is that the comfort is free, HiberSense pays for itself over time by efficiently reducing energy costs.

Our solution uses sensors throughout the home to learn patterns about when and where heating, cooling, and even fresh air is needed to make sure you're comfortable. Our central hub uses all of this data along with your input from our app to proactively make adjustments to the space so that it aligns with your preferences by opening and closing our smart vents and controlling our smart thermostat.
