This product offers web-based monitoring for the building’s power consumption as well as controls the building appliances feathered by Internet of Things. The system is comprised of a web-based application, a power monitoring plug and a portable smart plug that could be installed at the socket outlets.
The system communicates with the cloud controller by WiFi connection and notifies the user to switch ON/OFF the load remotely when the time is right. By doing this, it can help the user to reduce electricity bill by managing the loads during peak and off-peak hours. In addition, it can also help the buildings with PV installation to minimise the power exported to the grid by consuming it locally.
