SMART HOMES & SUSTAINABILITY SUSTAINABLE


FROM SMART TRANSFORMING HOMES


TO


Schneider Electric has unveiled its next evolution in smart home technology with new Wiser sensors, safety and temperature controls to understand room by room energy performance and CO2 impact, all controlled by the Wiser app.


to inform decision-making and connecting the electric and digital world. Wiser is the solution.


Smart homes just got sustainable


The new additions to Schneider Electric’s Wiser


range sustainable, of smart


home products mark a significant step forward in its plans to create affordable,


energy


efficient, safe and personalised homes. The new products promise to increase safety, while giving consumers more insights on their energy usage and the corresponding impact in CO2 emissions. Thanks to AI and Machine Learning based predictions, consumers have the potential to reduce energy consumption and electrical heating costs by up to 50 per cent, as well as predict solar production trends (future release).

S ustainable smart


homes could be a reality for consumers within the next ten years according to Schneider Electric,


the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation. The firm unveiled its blueprint for the ‘Sustainable Home of the Future’ at the recent IFA trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances held in Berlin, and also launched a range of new smart home energy solutions under its Wiser brand. The new products, Power Tag, Acti9 Active and the efficient room-by-room Temperature Control system can be easily and inexpensively fitted into people’s existing homes and controlled via a single app, representing a significant step forward on the path to sustainable houses.


24 DIY WEEK SEPTEMBER 2020


Residential housing is set to become the biggest consumer of electricity globally. EV charging, the electrification of heat, and increased occupancy as more people work from home will see consumers’ electricity consumption dramatically increase over the next ten years. Smart efficient energy management will be more important than ever to ensure homes are sustainably powered and intelligent enough to optimise their own energy needs, without compromising on comfort.


The Sustainable Home of the Future Schneider Electric’s vision for the Sustainable Home of the Future is one that connects the lifeline of homes – electricity – with digital. By connecting all the elements under one roof you can control every device easily through an app, which will


allow different systems to interplay with each other and be personalised to you, the homeowner, to make it as comfortable, energy efficient and self-sufficient as you need. The Sustainable Home of


the


Future will learn and anticipate when, where and how much energy is required to light, heat, power and charge to meet its occupants’ needs effectively and efficiently. Advances in solar technology will make it a feasible energy source for a wider range of residential homes and geographies. Electric vehicles will double up as energy storage systems, and intelligent smart meters will ensure that buildings can produce, store and manage their own energy consumption too. Future homes will be able to identify the best energy source to use at the right time to reduce cost. Crucial to achieving this goal is increasing the data available


in the enhanced Wiser ecosystem of smart sustainable products introduced at IFA 2020. The Power Tag is a simple ‘plug and play’ sensor for your electric panel (suitably designed to retrofit older properties affordably). Alongside the Wiser range, it enables homeowners to track energy consumption room by room and crucially, it tells you how this energy is being used, not just how much is consumed. Occupants can set monthly energy consumption targets, receiving an alert if the Wiser system predicts that target will be exceeded, enabling people to reduce usage and avoid bill-shock. A future product feature will add an extra


level of analytics


provided by the sensor, which will also


help homeowners monitor their consumption in terms of CO2 emissions to better understand their carbon footprint. For electric vehicle
