Energy Management - Sustainabilty

By installing an energy management system into your home you will be able to significantly reduce your home’s operating cost. With a high level of integration and communication between devices in your home, we can program your smart home system to automatically adjust lighting, open/close motorised windows/blinds and have your heating and cooling system respond to the time of day or localised temperatures.

At SMARTHOMEWORKS we will take the extra steps of designing your home’s technology systems to conserve energy and give you the option of having actionable intelligence on your home’s energy consumption.

A truly smart home, is one that is smart enough to manage energy and water usage for you. This not only benefits the environment – it provides substantial financial benefits too, both in reduced energy and water bills and in added resale value for your home. Significant energy and cost savings can result from the automation of these systems and additional savings are also yielded from reduced maintenance costs due to the reduced running time of the equipment.

Meters, Sensors and Timers

Through a combination of elements, you can turn your home into a sustainable beacon for the rest of your neighbourhood to aspire to replicate. These elements include:

  • Sensors for temperature levels, lighting levels and occupancy/motion.
  • Timers and schedules to switch off loads at set times, turn appliances from standby to off and set times for most efficient use of water for irrigation.
  • Meters that measure and report usage back to your smartphone or tablet to see when there are heavy load times and over usage.
  • Create a Green Scene – have an energy savings mode that can be turned on and off.
  • Using solar panels to provide and store required energy and eventually be able to supply back to the grid and make money!

View your usage

Popular control systems employ energy-management dashboards that can be easily viewed on your touchscreen, tablet, or smartphone to display your home’s energy usage in real-time and calculate energy savings and the reduction in your carbon footprint in response to real-time electrical, water, and gas usage. This can make saving energy a fun and educational experience, especially for children.
