Energy monitoring and management have become hot button topics in the last few years. Why is everyone talking about them? And what does it really mean to manage and monitor your energy?
The process of monitoring the amount of energy used by a household, campus, or building is called energy monitoring. The process of taking the information collected during monitoring and using the data to become more efficient in energy use is called energy management.
Simple energy management can be done by switching off unnecessary devices during peak energy periods, but this method is incomplete. It’s impossible to monitor our energy usage every moment of every day. That’s where Control4 can help. A Control4 home automation system can provide you constant energy monitoring and management without requiring you to flip a single switch.
