This Black Friday, Smart Home Shoppers Will Save on Energy Bills With Keen Home's Smart Vents, Available Online and on Shelves at Lowe's

Best Tech of CES 2015 Innovation and Shark Tank Season 6 Hit Announces Launch of Proprietary Platform and Major Retail Deal

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2015) - With winter just around the corner, heating systems will be running at full force, sooner than we'd like. This Black Friday, available for the first time in select Lowe's stores and online at IrisbyLowes.com, KeenHome.io and Amazon, shoppers can purchase the latest innovation in smart home technology: Keen Home's Smart Vents for room-by-room temperature control throughout the home. The Smart Vent is a wirelessly connected air vent that intelligently redirects central HVAC airflow for increased comfort and energy efficiency. The Smart Vent's high-quality design and interchangeable faceplates add beauty and distinctiveness to traditionally unattractive air vents.

The Smart Vent was unveiled at last year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, then went on to receive one of the largest valuations in Shark Tank history from Robert Herjavec during Season 6 of the popular television show.

"The Smart Vent is a big step towards the proactively aware home that can take care of its occupants," said Nayeem Hussain, co-founder of Keen Home. "Millions of homeowners across the U.S. and Canada now have the opportunity to install a Smart Vent System to get rid of pesky hot or cold spots once and for all. We're sure they will enjoy seeing a difference in their energy bill, too."
