Energy Monitoring System
Energy resource monitor is a touch-screen monitor that allows users to drill down to specific information about water, gas and electricity usage, see what that usage means in terms of dollars and carbon footprint, and set goals for resource use and capping their impact.
Users can monitor their data through their internet or web-enabled phone and mobile devices, and can receive text and email alerts if they¡¯re approaching the limits they¡¯ve set for themselves.
Benefit 1: Highly Detailed Information Puts Users in Control
Sometimes it can be hard to figure out where your energy is going within your home. But with monitoring systems, the information can get extremely detailed. Users can look at energy consumption in each room, and will soon be able to see pinpointed information down to even the exact appliance and outlet. For example, a parent can see if their teen has been watching television in their room all night long.
Benefit 2: Users Get Real Time Data with a Long History
Energy Monitoring System provides real-time information. It updates energy use information every five minutes from the whole home or system, and stores that information for seven years. Users can then compare that information to their usage yesterday, last week, over the last year, and so forth, giving them a full picture of their habits and their progress.
The system does not require a smart grid to function, but can be integrated into a smart grid if one is running in a user¡¯s area.
Benefit 3: As Homes Get Smarter, Homeowners Conserve More
This system is well on its way to turning homes into truly smart living spaces, with homeowners in full control of their energy use.
Such control over energy use means customers can make an average of a 20% reduction on their resource intake. Considering the best energy source is conservation, using what we have wisely will result in a low carbon footprint, low utility bills, and energy resources for the future
Where there's a will there's a way.
