Osterville, MA. September 2011—Savant Systems LLC, having delivered the first Apple®-based home automation and commercial control system, has announced the introduction of the SmartEnergy Monitor model SEM-1024, the first in a series of energy management products from Savant®. SmartEnergy technology measures energy usage and production in real-time and can also deliver historical usage data from multiple energy management devices, empowering homeowners and facilities managers alike with critical information.
Savant’s SmartEnergy Monitor enables users to reduce energy costs by monitoring how and when specific devices
draw power—particularly during peak pricing or load periods. While conserving energy is paramount, the SmartEnergy Monitor improves efficiency while continuing to maintain the user’s preferred lifestyle. “Savant’s SmartEnergy Monitor will provide a system-wide view of total energy consumption as well as an easy to understand picture of specific cause-and- effect scenarios, » explained Savant CEO Robert Madonna.
Savant’s SmartEnergy Monitor connects to the main electrical panel via clip-on current transformers, and then sends collected data to a Savant SmartSystem using the local area network. Once installed, users can monitor every aspect of electricity usage, from appliances to heating and lighting. Energy usage and/or production data can be viewed from home or remotely using an iPad®. « Savant will continue to develop our energy solution so that consumers can establish specific usage targets and see tangible results from the changes they have made,” Madonna added.
Savant’s SmartEnergy Monitor offers commercial and industrial applications, generating critical energy usage data that can be analyzed by zone, by machine or subsystem to quantify energy usage, identify waste energy and justify efficiency-based upgrades.
