In May we proudly announced our new app Smappee Energy Monitor 2.0. We've designed it specially to support current and future Smappee innovations and to perfect the Smappee user experience. We’re still working on existing and new features, but for those who can't wait, a light version is already available for download from GooglePlay and iTunes.

Besides a guide on how to use the redesigned app, we have also listed the new features and how you can use them below. This will immediately demonstrate the differences between the old and the new app.

 

  1. BRAND NEW! Tell Smappee about your homeSmappee Survey
    Another first! Now you can tell Smappee all about your home. Just fill in the appliance survey. Tell Smappee what type of building you live in, how many people live in your home and what appliances you use. That way, you give Smappee a head start in finding different appliances. Go to Profile, go to Your homes, select a home and tap Survey.

  2. View your energy use at a glance
    Get an extra user-friendly overview of the energy flows and costs in your home. One quick look on your Dashboard and you immediately know how much energy you’re consuming and producing.

  3. Automate your home easily
    The Smappee Switch can switch your appliance off or on whenever and wherever you instruct it to.The Switch can only be controlled with the new Smappee app. We also added a cool new smart home feature: Smappee Scenes. It allows you to automate appliances connected to a ComfortplugTM or a Smappee Switch in many different ways. Create formulas based on activity in your home, activity of an appliance, location, active energy use, sunrise or sunset, time schedules and import or export. Do you want the blinds to close when the sun sets? Or the garage door to open when you approach your home? Add a Smappee Scene and Smappee automatically takes care of it!

  4. Faster energy analytics. More detailed charts.
    Navigate easily through your energy charts. Tap the bubble on your Dashboard to see your energy consumption and production charts. Zoom in, swipe through your chart or jump to another period.



  5. Analyze appliance usage better
    Thanks to our updated appliance detection technology, NILM 2.0, Smappee can detect appliances with long running programs much better: washing machines, tumble dryers…etc. Now you can analyze the usage and costs of these appliances in more detail.

  6. Give feedback on detected Events
    We’re excited about this one! It’s Smappee’s first feature where you can give it direct feedback on its efforts to recognize your appliances. In the event list, you can now swipe an event to the right if Smappee detected it correctly. If Smappee got it wrong, just swipe the event to the left. Together we can improve Smappee’s ability to detect appliance events correctly.



  7. Watch the activity of your sub metered appliances
    Scroll down in Dashboard and view the live events of the appliances that are being sub metered with a Smappee Plus or Smappee Pro. Smappee is happy to be of service. 

  8. Get to know more about how Smappee estimates your energy rates
    Smappee gives you insights on your energy spending. Let’s have a look at Smappee’s calculations:

    The cost it reports is an approximation of your utility bill. Since Smappee can’t take every tax rule, fee guideline or tiered pricing into account. Consult your energy rates in the Profile tab, go to Your homes, select a home and tap Your Rates.
