Smappee has launched the latest addition to its smart energy ecosystem, Smappee Switch, an advanced smart plug. Smappee Switch enables homeowners to remotely control and discover the energy consumption of almost any household appliance in tandem with their Smappee energy monitors. Consumer can use Smappee Switch in any home with a Smappee energy monitor to transform traditionally “dumb” appliances into smart ones. Smappee’s smart plug measures the exact energy consumption of one or a group of appliances, and directly relays this data to the free Smappee app. With a single touch of the Smappee Switch or remotely via the Smappee app, users can turn connected appliances on and off. This provides homeowners with far easier control of their appliances and ensures they are never unnecessarily using electricity in their home. Smappee’s ecosystem allows for flexibility in existing, new, or to-be-built homes. Smappee Switch also enables installers to offer homeowners demand response capabilities, meaning they can better manage their energy consumption during the most economical times. For example if they have solar panels on their roof, the Switch uses smart triggers to assign excess power from the solar system to the boiler, providing greater cost savings on a homeowner’s electricity bill.
