Birmingham-based Open AV Ltd has announced today that it and its Enado Smart Home control product has won a Highly Commended Award in the Green Technology category of the ICT Excellence Awards 2010.

The Birmingham company, which currently employs ten people at its head office in Pope Street in the Jewellery Quarter, achieved the shortlist for Enado, an advanced energy and automation control solution that connects, controls and monitors the functions, systems and entertainment in residential and commercial buildings through simple web enabled devices such as smartphones, tablets and personal computers. Along with the other finalists.

Mike Musson, ICT Cluster Manager comments: “The number of entries rose by over 30% this year so competition has been extremely tough. The innovation and hard-work demonstrated by this year’s entrants will make judging harder than ever.”

Adam Kent, Managing Director said: “We are absolutely delighted have received this prestige award, Enado is critical to our growth and the recognition of the hard work carried out over the last three years raises awareness and encourages us to press ahead with further development. The assistance we have received locally through Business Link, Advantage West Midlands and Investbx and Birmingham City Council to reach this milestone, epitomises the innovative approach of Birmingham towards assisting small business growth.”

OpenAV provides whole house integration with control and real time monitoring of energy usage through connection to any type of smart meter or energy sensor, amalgamating information from electricity, water, gas and other utilities into one screen.
