Smart Energy Service Added To Home Monitoring Platform

Intamac Systems : 24 January, 2011  (New Product)
Intamac Systems has launched a web-based smart energy service which complements other home monitoring functions which enables on-line monitoring of energy usage and other parameters from anywhere in the world
Intamac Systems announces its Smart Energy service and partnership with Green Energy Options (GEO) to connect in-home display (IHD's) to its web-based home monitoring platform. Intamac Systems new Smart Energy service enables homeowners to visualise, monitor and interact with their energy consumption.



Intamac's Smart Energy solution is delivered via its unique web-based, managed service platform, which already provides utilities, telcos and service providers with a range of added value services. Intamac has incorporated GEO's latest in-home display device - the Ensemble - into its connected home platform, replicating the display information online so that consumers can access and monitor the energy consumption and control appliances in their homes at any time, and from anywhere in the world.



Content is delivered over fixed and mobile broadband allowing end users to visualise the energy consumption in their homes. By delivering this information via internet and mobile, consumers can actively monitor and manage their energy consumption, realise cost reductions, and improve their home's energy efficiency. Intamac's 'life beyond the meter' approach allows new services to be developed, making use of its platform capability to network devices in the home more effectively than ever before.



"The launch of our Smart Energy service signals a real milestone in providing customers with new connected home capabilities," comments Kevin Meagher, CEO Intamac Systems Ltd. "Even before the infrastructure is in place to deliver Smart Meters and the Smart Grid network, consumers really need to be aware of how they can make a difference to their lifestyle and start reducing energy consumption today.  Through this partnership with GEO, we are taking a big stride towards homeowners having a simple and cost effective way of interacting with their energy usage, identifying and making savings, and taking responsibility for the energy consumption in their homes."



GEO offers a range of energy monitoring displays that bring energy information to the attention of those who are using it. Utilising colour graphics that are bold and eye-catching the displays provide visual alerts that encourage behavioural change. GEO aims to take what is complex, dull technical information and make it interesting and relevant. The energy monitors can provide itemised usage that pinpoints exactly where energy is being wasted. By doing this, the end user has the knowledge to adjust their behaviour and to significantly reduce their energy consumption and identify how to make their home more efficient.



The Ensemble is GEO's next generation in-home display that lets users see how much electricity they're using overall and to track up to six appliances. Connecting to the Intamac platform via an Internet bridge makes the Ensemble a truly smart device - users can control the appliances via a web portal or using an iPhone app, whilst a 'one-touch' lifestyle button can switch all six appliances off at once.



"GEO has always had a very simple objective; to make energy visible," Patrick Caiger-Smith, CEO Green Energy Options remarks. "Through our work with Intamac we have delivered another medium for consumers to really engage with their energy consumption, at home and remotely. The launch of our connect-home model the Ensemble also adds functionality which allows consumers to increase the efficiencies within their home and control appliances, enabling them to adjust their lifestyle and build a better relationship with their energy management system."
