Sensus, the Raleigh company that makes two-way utility meters and smart grid technology, has scored a license to distribute energy management software that allows consumers to monitor the electricity consumption of appliances on their property.
The software, created by U.K.-based Navetas Energy Management, will be available as an optional service that gives Sensus metering customers an online and mobile portal to track the electricity consumption of appliances. The system also provides information about daily usage patterns and the costs linked to each device.
"Our technology allows the customer to see disaggregated data such as the electricity consumed by a water heater in a basement or a toaster oven in the kitchen and know how much each device costs them to operate," said Matt Auto, Sensus’ vice president of corporate strategy and business development, in a statement.
Sensus’ meters allow homeowners and businesses to connect to smart grids and adjust thermostats remotely as well as track daily energy usage.
