Z-Wave alliance partner participates in an energy management project involving co-operation with the Danish energy group SEAS-NVE
News Release from:
06 September 2011
Z-Wave alliance partner GreenWave Reality has been selected by one of Denmark's largest energy provider – SEAS-NVE– to assist with a special energy saving campaign. Since the middle of the year, selected customers have been provided with GreenWave Reality's energy management platform free of charge. The energy display enables house and apartment owners to read off and analyse at a glance all relevant information about their home electricity, water and gas consumption. In order to allow the solution to be incorporated into a home control network, GreenWave Reality has integrated Z-Wave technology into its new energy display. In 2012 all SEAS-NVE customers will be able to benefit from the SmartHome solution.
The Z-Wave alliance is an open consortium of well-known technology companies and distinguished experts in the field of wireless-based SmartHome solutions. In particular, Z-Wave facilitates the development of technologies enabling the exact measurement of energy consumption in residential homes. In this case, the use of Z-Wave in the GreenWave Reality solution will provide, consumers with a clear monitoring and control platform for home energy consumption.
A combination of home automation and smart metering
The GreenWave Reality display enables occupants to use wireless technology to make detailed electricity, gas and water consumption readings. In addition, further Z-Wave compatible devices can be integrated into the home network and actively controlled. This provides home owners with transparency and control of their energy consumption, as the solution combines smart metering features with modern home automation. A consequence of this is that, by configuring individual energy profiles, a user can then use just the electrical or heating energy that is actually required.
In conjunction with the GreenWave Reality gateway and the provider's compatible PowerNodesTM (plug adapters or multiple sockets), consumers can install a complete energy management network based on Z-Wave. The energy display can also be supplied separately from the GreenWave Reality energy management platform, as it can be linked with Z-Wave compatible solutions from third party providers.
Features of the Z-Wave energy display from GreenWave Reality:
- Detailed display with information about domestic water, gas and electricity consumption
- Direct connection options
- Internet connection
- Firmware updates via Internet
- Simple connection to the GreenWave Reality gateway
