Our energy management appliance is a software service and modular hardware device that acts as a central control point for the home. It securely connects the consumer's network of HAN-enabled devices to their broadband Internet service. Through this connection our product allows consumers to monitor, control, and optimize their energy use through a web browser or mobile handset.
Features provided by our platform include:
access to real-time energy use data
historical consumption and expenditure reports
environmental footprint and impact calculations
neighborhood and local/regional efficiency comparisons
personalized energy use and expense forecasts
access to thermostat and load control interfaces (e.g. pool pumps, water heaters)
participation in utility-sponsored demand response programs
remote control of HAN-enabled appliances
automated rules setup to optimize energy use for comfort or efficiency
configurable alerts for energy and other monitorable events (e.g. brownouts, temperature warnings)
customized recommendations for energy efficiency improvements and alternative/renewable installations
measurement and verification for your efficiency and alternative energy investments
Our product is primarily designed for consumers and small businesses in regions where utilities are deploying HAN-enabled smart meters. Alternatives for consumers without smart meters are under consideration, however.
