Home Solutions: Energy Management
Green Home Technology
An eco-friendly home is not just good for the environment, it is also good for your wallet. Effective green and sustainability efforts are much more complex than just harvesting daylight and dimming lighting levels. Managing and controlling ambient lighting is only one small piece of the process. The only way to achieve meaningful reductions in energy usage and utility costs is for all systems to be completely integrated on a single, intelligent management platform. Increasing the sustainability value of your home will help you save on energy consumption and reduce your carbon footprint. We work closely with architects and builders who desire to execute such energy-saving ideas into their projects and to gain nationally recognized LEED certification.
With real-time monitoring, you can have a dashboard display of your home’s energy usage to see where it’s being used efficiently and determine peak usage. Let our control systems optimize energy consumption while maintaining comfort. Save energy by easily viewing and adjusting your electrical, water, and gas usage from one simple to use device. See calculated savings and the reduction in your carbon footprint in response to your adjustments from dimming lights or adjusting your homes’ temperature presets. Settings can automatically change or notify you whether you’re home or away.
Smart climate control makes it easy for you to set the perfect temperature of your home regardless of the season or other conditions. Create a comfortable environment by making adjustments from the same touch screen you use to control your lights, shades, and home entertainment system. Monitor and control your thermostats from a mobile device if you left your AC blasting when left home or turn up the heat before you return on a cold day. Heating and cooling your home can be expensive and our climate control solutions save you energy with programmed settings and integration to a home automation system.
Lighting control in a single room or throughout your home gives you the flexibility to adjust light so you only use the amount needed whether cooking, entertaining, or watching TV so you save energy without compromising style or comfort. Smart technology enables your lights to automatically adjust based on time of day, whether the room is occupied, and the amount of daylight coming in from your windows. Our control solutions work for different sources in your home including LED and fluorescent fixtures.
Motorized Window Treatments
With motorized window treatments you can easily adjust the amount of daylight in your home to save energy while increasing comfort and protecting interiors. Motorized shading and drapery reduces solar heat gain whether blocking out the sun entirely or using a transparent shade to allow just the right amount of light needed in your kitchen, family room, or bathroom. Manage energy without comprising style with hundreds of window treatment fabric and color options available to choose from.
Small appliance controls save energy by shutting off standby power to electronic appliances such as printers and computers monitors when they’re not in use. A device in standby mode can give the illusion that you are actually conserving energy, the reality is that valuable and expensive resources are still being consumed. Our energy solutions for appliances are effective without compromising convenience or your lifestyle. Optimize your energy savings by incorporating small appliance power control into your home’s integrated control system.
Decrease your carbon footprint, while increasing the sustainability value of your home. Harnessing the sun’s power for today’s residential application allows consumers to bring life to systems with a cost effective and eco-friendly approach. Solar power has none of the problems associated with the collecting and burning fossil fuels. Best of all, it’s free; with some smart upfront investment, save bundles on residual expenses typically absorbed by traditional power consumption.
Use only the power resources your home and family needs and give back for the greater good of the planet. Utility company energy prices generally increase during peak usage demand periods. By implementing a smart grid energy system, your home will actively modify lighting, shading and climate systems to mitigate energy consumption thus resulting in significant annualized savings. Help reduce your carbon footprint and play your role in reducing global CO2 levels through a smart approach to energy usage.
Contribute to a greener world with a sustainable solution for harvesting daylight. Light from the sun enters your home through windows and can offset the need and expense of artificially generated light. A smart home lighting system comprised of dimmers, switches and light sensors can be optimized to harvest the free available natural light. Light levels entering the space or on the task surface is automatically measured with photosensors mounted to the ceiling, wall or fixtures. Based on programmed settings to achieve the best balance of electric and daylight, communication is sent to the lighting system to dim or switch lights and open or close motorized window treatments accordingly.
Non-intrusive occupancy monitoring with a smart technology system enables advanced energy-efficiency optimization to be realized for your home. Sensors are discreetly positioned to effectively determine if anyone is in the room and trigger automatic adjustments to subsystems such as electric lighting and motorized window treatments, HVAC, and small appliances. Automatically turn lights on when a person enters a room and off when he or she leaves. An occupancy sensor is ideal for rooms where lights are often inadvertently left on, such as a child’s room. You no longer need to worry that the AC is blasting or lights are on when nobody is in the room. Additionally, usage patterns over time are analyzed and sensitivity levels of the sensors are adapted accordingly.
