Smappee Pro Detects Energy Guzzlers in the Workplace

London, 1 July, 2015 – Smappee, a global energy management company, today announced the launch of Smappee Pro, currently the only energy monitoring and control solution for small and midsized businesses (SMB) that can help them see exactly how much energy they are using in real time and control their office tools remotely using mobile devices -- independent of any utility. Using advanced disaggregation algorithms, Smappee Pro tracks energy consumption down to the commercial appliance level. It also maps and compares the energy usage at different offices, making it ideal for businesses with multiple locations.

While many large companies and corporations use technology to trim energy consumption and costs, there has not been an efficient and cost-effective solution for SMBs until now.

“We have leveraged our innovative smart home technology to create Smappee Pro,” said Stefan Grosjean, chief executive officer and co-founder of Smappee. “Together, Smappee, our flagship home energy monitor, and Smappee Pro can give consumers and businesses energy information and the ability to control their appliances remotely. This enables them to develop sustainable behaviour to not only save costs, but also combat climate change in the long run.”

Smappee Pro’s key features include: 

Real-time Visibility: Business owners and managers have access to the Smappee Pro Web portal and mobile app (available on Android and iOS) that show real-time information of their office’s energy flows and costs, across multiple offices. For example, they can see how much energy the air conditioning or lights consume and what the corresponding costs would be at any given moment. 

Actionable Insight: With real-time visibility, users can easily spot energy guzzlers, triggering them to replace them with more energy efficient ones or changing particular lifestyle habits that contribute to that energy expenditure. Smappee Pro’s mobile app sends direct tips and advice to help users conserve energy. It also has data mining tools for managers or energy management teams to see and report energy usage, savings and carbon footprint details.  

Intelligent Control: Smappee Pro allows users to control specific office appliances remotely from their mobile devices. If store managers forget to turn off certain equipment after they leave, they will be able to use the app to switch them off. Using Smappee Pro's Smart Logic capabilities, users can also create automated schedules and commands such as turning equipment on at sunrise and off at sunset, or setting an action by one appliance to trigger an action in another appliance.  

Solar Energy: Smappee Pro measures solar production, so users know exactly when, where and how much energy is being created in real time. It also visualises the cost-savings of using solar energy, helping business owners see the return on investment from implementing solar panels. 

Born out of the smart home market, Smappee Pro is naturally easy and quick to install. Smappee Pro has nine inputs for current clamps, which measure the energy consumption of a business, and Comfort PlugsTM, complementary adapters that fit between an office tool and the power point to enable automation capabilities.  The current clamps are clipped around specific cables in the fuse box.  Communication with the Smappee cloud is handled via Ethernet and optionally Wi-Fi or 4G/3G/GPRS via USB dongle. 

Smappee Pro is available as of July 2015.  Pricing starts at £429 exclusive VAT, installation and data storage costs.  The monitors are installed via Smappee-partners.  For more information, please visit this page, www.smappee.com/pro, or email pro@smappee.com
