Intwine Energy Teams With Case Western Reserve University in Landmark Gigabit Fiber-to-the-Home Pilot Research Project
Intwine Energy, a leader in the development of Internet connected smart-grid products for both utilities and retail customers, today announced the adoption of its WiFi thermostat technology into Case Western Reserve University's Case Connection Zone pilot research project. The IECT220 and the IECT 210 Intwine WiFi Thermostat, as well as a beta version of the Intwine Energy WiFi Connected Whole-House Power Monitor, which includes the Blueline Innovations sensor, and Smart Plug, have been successfully demonstrated to researchers and will be installed into a beta community...
Working with Intwine Energy we have installed whole house electric and gas monitors in several of the beta block homes. Residents get real time feedback from Intwine's website on whether their efforts to conserve were effective.
From their smart phones, residents can control WiFi-connected thermostats. Using this they and reduce electric and gas consumption while still keeping their homes comfortable when they are at home.
Energy Management Group Meetings
Peers are an important influence in getting homeowners to conserve. Using multiparty HD video, members of the home energy management peer group can meet periodically, possibly with a facilitator, to share ideas and compare results.
More recent technological developments and decreasing cost have allowed for the penetration of WiFi-enabled products outside of the traditional markets. Now nearly any electronic device can conceivably connect to the Internet.
