Nowadays, energy efficiency is the name of the game. Homeowners everywhere are starting to pay attention to their energy usage while trying to find ways to better manage that usage. However, without an easy way to monitor energy consumption, how can homeowners ever expect to take the necessary steps to reduce their energy usage?
The Answer: They can’t! Fortunately, that is all about to change.
Alarm.com recently announced its new Energy Monitoring solution, which provides homeowners with a detailed view of not only their whole home energy usage, but also the energy usage of individual devices. Alarm.com’s allows homeowners to track energy usage in kilowatt-hours and actual dollars.
“Because our underlying security platform is tightly integrated with thermostats, lights, appliances and other home automation devices around the home, Alarm.com has made it easy for consumers to transform energy usage data into actionable changes that reduce energy consumption,” said Alarm.com’s vice president of product management, Alison Slavin. “Our new energy monitoring solution enhances the Alarm.com mobile app and Web interface by providing an integrated view of energy usage and home activity.”
The Alarm.com Energy Monitoring solution builds on several recently announced energy-focused product and service innovations, including:
- Geo-Services: Alarm.com allows homeowners to maximize energy savings by having thermostats automatically adjust based on their mobile phone location.
- Solar Panel Integration: Alarm.com allows hoemowners to track their home’s solar energy production compared to their energy usage and home activity.
- Integration with Lutron: Alarm.com/Lutron subscribers can use their security system and sensor activity as triggers to change their Lutron light and shade settings.
