Smart Panels – Giving you real time information and control of your energy usage.
What is a Smart Panel? Smart panels are connected to the your home’s Wi-Fi and give you real time updates on energy usage, tripped breaker alerts, and can show how much power you are using over time.
Energy Use: View your real-time energy consumption both as a total and as individual circuits. It also tracks historical trends by week, month, and year. Want to see how much your electric vehicle is costing or estimate how much you would save by making changes to your A/C system? With a smart panel, the information you need is at your fingertips. If you are making home improvements to reduce energy or help save the environment, the smart panel gives you the data you need to know that you are making a difference.
Alerts & Updates: Smart breakers tell you when and why a circuit breaker trips. Forgot if you left the oven on after you left the house? It’s easy to tell with the app. Are you planning to go away on vacation and want to be sure the power is on or the sump pump is running? You can have that peace of mind easily at hand.
Control: The smart panel gives you the ability to remotely turn OFF any circuit breaker. That oven you forgot, or want to turn off the water heater while you are away on vacation? Simply turn off the breaker with your phone. You can view system status in real time and detect if critical loads need to be addressed
You can also choose to upgrade the entire panel or just one circuit at a time by installing smart circuit breakers. Using the intuitive app, homeowners enjoy instant, easy access to essential elements of their load center’s data via a smartphone, tablet or desktop.
