Energy Management

Using a smartphone to control energy management of IoT devices in home

Z-Wave is a key element in the home energy management equation. Z-Wave allows consumers to monitor and control their energy consumption while serving as a wireless communications bridge between the home, the utility, and the smart grid.

Z-Wave control empowers home systems and even individual devices and power strips to operate with optimal efficiency. Smart climate, lighting, and window covering controls realize substantial cost savings each month. More importantly, Z-Wave provides the consumer with quantified data that lets them decide where and how to conserve costly household energy, and build more efficient habits that save money and the planet.

Energy management is provided by utilities, security dealers and DIY offerings. Energy management enables monitoring and control of energy usage in the home. By collecting data over time, analytics can be enabled that show trends and predict usage based on weather and occupancy. Z-Wave energy management use cases are an inherent part of Z-Wave command classes.
