Smart Panel LLC is producing an innovative new home energy management product which is mounted on the circuit breaker of homes and small commercial buildings. Whereas competing energy management technologies focus on controlling power at switches and receptacles, Smart Panel takes a holistic view of the home and controls energy distribution at the home’s natural energy hub. By placing a single device at the breaker, the homeowner achieves control over every load in the house with one device.
The Smart Panel is a totally enclosed device, comprised of a series of digitally controlled relays that allows consumers to turn energy loads on and off at the circuit level. This single piece of hardware communicates wirelessly with cell phones and other devices providing home owners with the ability to not only monitor electricity consumption, but also turn on and off rooms and devices at the click of a button or through pre-set timers and automated controls. The product is sleekly designed to be compatible with existing breaker panels, is easy to install, and makes home energy management affordable for the everyday consumer.
