By installing a Smappee (Home) Energy Monitor, households can see the power they are consuming (and producing) in real-time, allowing for informed actions to be taken to reduce their energy costs.
The Smappee (Home) Energy Monitor is a low cost power monitoring device that can be installed quickly and easily by a qualified electrician. The unit connects to the household's Wi-Fi network allowing users to view their import/export, consumption and solar production in real-time.
The Smappee Home Energy Monitor provides an affordable way for households to monitor their power consumption and solar production in realtime via the Smappee smartphone app or online dashboard. Even offering the ability to monitor and control individual appliances.
By installing a Smappee system households can gain actionable insights into their energy usage, allowing them to implement strategies to reduce costs and environmental impact either by changing how and when they use appliances directly or by adding automatic control which is possible with the Smappee Switch.
By installing the Smappee Home Energy Monitor in your home you can fully monitor your energy consumption down to the appliance level, providing valuable insights into your energy use and how you can potentially reduce costs. This includes the ability to monitor Gas and Water consumption, including leak detection.
The system can monitor both power consumption and production making it perfect for monitoring solar systems including power imported and exported.
Further to energy monitoring, there is also the possibility to control appliances with the Smappee Switch offering manual and/or automated control via the smartphone app.
The Smappee Home Energy Monitor collects real-time and historical power usage and production data right down to the appliance level.
By combining traditional submetering clamps, the Smappee Switch, and patented appliance recognition technology, Smappee offers the most complete and comprehensive set of submetering options available on the market.
Monitoring and reporting are provided via the Smappee Online Dashboard, Smappee Smart Phone/Tablet App.
The main method for capturing power usage and production with the Smappee Home Energy Monitor is with the use of current clamps (up to 200A). These can be added to the main incoming circuit and to the solar inverter output in the switchboard.
Utilising Smappee's patented machine learning algorithms the Smappee Home Energy Monitor has the ability to identify appliances on the network by measuring their unique usage characteristics. This means only a single measurement point installed at the main circuit breaker can provide valuable data on individual appliance consumption.
Whilst allowing for wireless control of appliances on the network, the Smappee Switch also has the ability to measure the consumption of the controlled appliance and feed the data wirelessly to the connected gateway.
It is also possible to monitor Gas and Water consumption at home by utilising the Smappee Gas & Water monitor (wireless).
This can be achieved by installing a magnetic or photoelectric sensor attached to Smappee's wireless Gas & Water monitor unit.
In addition to energy monitoring, there is also the option to install the Smappee Switch for appliance and lighting control.
Control is managed via the Smappee smartphone/tablet app with the ability to switch appliances and loads manually, or automatically using the scenes function.
One of the most exciting features that Smappee offers is the ability to work with other apps and smart devices using the If This Then That (IFTTT) platform.
IFTTT allows users to create rules and associated actions based on different scenarios associated with smart devices and applications. For example, you could create a rule that IF Smappee reports solar production greater than 3kW Then set the temperature in your home down by 2ьз╕C with your Sensibo smart AC controller/thermostat.
The options for different automated rules using the IFTTT platform are almost endless with more applications and smart devices being added constantly.
By providing insights into the way you consume and produce energy, along with the possibility for smart control of appliances to reduce energy costs, a Smappee Home Energy Monitor can pay for itself quickly, also adding value to your home.
Whether you only need to monitor your power or need complete monitoring and control, Smappee can provide the perfect solution.
