By installing a Smappee Infinity system, households and businesses 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 Infinity platform provides a premium power monitoring and control system that can be installed quickly and easily by a qualified electrician. The system connects to the sites local network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet (4G is also an option) allowing users to view their import/export, consumption and solar production in real-time.
Smappee Infinity provides a modular energy monitoring and control system that can be utilised as a full energy management system for both homes and businesses.
Smappee users 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 system.
With it's modular and expandable design the Smappee Infinity system can be utilised for almost any AC power monitoring application.
By installing the Smappee Infinity system in your home or business 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 and leak detection.
The system can monitor both power consumption and production making it perfect for monitoring solar systems including power imported from and exported to the grid.
Further to energy monitoring there is also the possiblity to control appliances and/or whole circuits with the Smappee Switch and Smappee Output Modules adding manual and/or automated control via the smart phone app.
Smappee Infinity collects real-time and historical power usage and production data (down to the appliance level), resulting in actionable insights into your energy usage.
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 is provided via the Smappee Online Dashboard, Smappee Smart Phone/Tablet App, Industrial Communication Protocols (including Modbus-RTU, Modbus-TCP/IP and MQTT) or via the purchasable API Licence.
The main method for capturing power usage with the Smappee Infinity system is with the use of split core CTs or Rogowski coils suited to the application. These can be added to the main incoming circuits and to sub-circuits in the switch board. E.g. lighting, general power, oven, boiler, HVAC, solar inverter, battery inverter, standby generator, etc.
Utilising Smappee's patented machine learning algorithims the Smappee Genius 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 incomer 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 consumption of the controlled appliance and feed the data wirelessly to the Genius gateway. With a wireless range of up to 20 meters and the ability to create a mesh network, users can add up to 20 Smappee Switches to a system.
It is also possible to monitor Gas and Water consumption at a home or facility by utilising either the Smappee Input Module or the Smappee Gas & Water monitor (wireless).
This can be achieved by connecting the pulse output of existing gas/water utility or sub meters, or by utilising 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. Or the Smappee Output Module combined with a relay or contactor installed in the switchboard to control full circuits.
Control is managed via the Smappee smart phone/tablet app with the ability to switch appliances and loads manually and/or automatically using the scenes function. Furthermore, with the integration with Amazon Alexa, voice control is also possible.
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 2째C 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.
We know every customer is different. Smappee have developed the Infinity system with flexibility in mind. This means you can pick and choose the features and services you need in order to deliver a solution tailored to your needs.
Do you need more control, data or services over time? No problem! Thanks to the modularity of Smappee Infinity, you can always build on the existing solution to meet your updated needs.
By providing insights into the way you consume and produce energy, along with the possibility for smart control of loads and appliances to reduce energy costs, a Smappee Infinity system can pay for itself quickly whilst also adding resale value to your home or business.
Whether you only need to monitor your electricity and solar, or need complete monitoring and control, the Smappee Infinity system can provide the perfect solution.
Not to mention that under Australian tax law the whole system can be written off as a deduction when installed in a business facility.
