Offices, schools, hotels, clinics, apartment blocks are all examples of large buildings housing many people with their own needs. The common denominator is that none of them are directly confronted with their consumption bills.
In the areas of heating and cooling, small changes in usage can substantially affect total consumed energy. Smappee and IntesisHome are offering a bundled solution that enhance the capabilities of both systems:
- Smappee provides heating and cooling insights to all parties involved: the property manager can see the overview on the Smappee web-based Dashboard and users can use the Smappee app to see the conse- quences of their actions in real time and in a historic overview.
- IntesisHome provides control of the HVAC systems to implement energy saving policies while maintaining the room at a comfortable temperature level. Complete management from any web browser is available for facility managers, energy managers or property owners, as well as control for the user from any Smartphone or Tablet.
Keeping rooms at the right temperature at at all times and making sure Air Conditioning units or Heat Pumps only work when it’s really necessary is translated into a percentage drop in energy consumption and Euros paid.
The potential for energy savings using the different IntesisHome special functions can be up to 40%. Smappee can easily identify usage patterns such as runtime during nights or weekends which can be remedied by programming the units accordingly using the integration with IntesisHome. With Smappee, the user and property manager can also measure and verify these savings as a consequence of their own energy savings policies.
In a next step, Smappee can identify usage patterns by combining insights from presence detection through ap- pliance activity such as PC’s, lights, etc. The control of optimizing energy consumption and even self-consumption by adding solar production can be automated in this way. Smappee and IntesisHome are also compatible with IFTTT, making integration with motion or other sensors of well-known brands simple and efficient.
