Smappee CES award Honoree 2018

Amsterdam, 26th October 2017 – Smappee, a leading developer of smart energy monitoring solutions, today announced that it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for its latest energy monitor and home energy traffic controller, Smappee Plus. Products taking part in this prestigious program are judged by a team of industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding product design and cutting-edge engineering across 28 consumer product categories.

Smappee Plus measures real-time energy use from household appliances, offering valuable insights into a homeowner's energy use and production. Smappee Plus is the only energy monitor that combines load disaggregation with submetering technology to provide real-time data also for appliances with variable output –such as air conditioning, electric vehicles, heatpumps, etc.-. Consumers are able to see how much energy a device uses and its daily, monthly or annual energy costs. Consequentially, owners can make informed decisions on their energy consumption (e.g. when to buy a more energy efficient fridge) and act to save on energy costs and efficiency.

Smappee Plus is also the only energy monitor that you can program to take on the role of an “energy traffic controller” in the home. The product can automatically steer excess energy production, such as solar power, to appliances in order of preference, further increasing a homeowner’s energy efficiency and cost savings. You can choose from numerous “recipes” that automate certain actions, for example: when you are simultaneously charging your EV and starting to cook on an electric stove, Smappee Plus will control and diminish the power that goes to your car until you’ve finished cooking to avoid your fuses from blowing. Afterwards, the car will receive more power again. Because of this energy traffic controller function, Smappee Plus is also a tool that enables the future vision of turning homes into decentralized energy hubs that can produce, sell and buy renewable energy. The Smappee Plus is compatible with smart Comfort PlugsTM and various IoT platforms such as Amazon Alexa, IFTTT, Stringify and more, which allows the homeowner to automate activities or control appliances from a distance. It’s also the first energy monitoring system to be integrated with the cryptocurrency, SolarCoin.

“We are truly honored to receive this recognition from CES,” said Stefan Grosjean, CEO and founder of Smappee. “It’s the reward for the continuous hard work of our highly-driven team during the last 5 years. We will keep investing in our people and close partnerships in order to realize the vast potential of Smappee Plus, helping homes to become a true enabler of the decentralized smart energy grid and offer the best experience possible for any family.”


 

Smappee will be at CES 2018 from 9th to 12th January, exhibiting at booth 40234. For more information or to arrange an interview with CEO Stefan Grosjean, please contact Nick Richardson at nrichardson@kiterocket.com.
