Wireless Z-WAVE Stick w/auto installation & 2GB MemoryNorthQ, in collaboration with Dong Energy, has developed a small meter reader that can be easily installed on existing electronic or mechanical meters in order to visualize electricity consumption in private homes. The meter reading solution is based on the Z-Wave wireless standard, which is ideal for controlling automation products within the home.
The product consists of 3 parts: a meter reader, a battery-powered wireless transmitter and a USB receiver. Electricity usage data is transferred to a chosen PC every 15 minutes, where it can then be visualized in the form of graphs, enabling customers to keep track of their electricity consumption (in kWh and EUR), and monitor their CO2 emissions, etc.. It is also possible to receive real-time measurements in order to investigate how much each individual appliance uses in active or standby mode.
Furthermore, it is possible to enter a power budget for how much you want to consume in EUR per year. A widget on the screen continuously monitors and updates electricity consumption data to indicate whether you are under or over budget. You are then able to compare your electricity consumption in the current year with that in previous years. It is also possible to compare the consumption in your current home with that in other types of dwelling, e.g. apartments, houses, villas, etc..
The meter reading solution can also be used in conjunction with the portal www.eualarm.tv or Google PowerMeter to get an overview of your total energy consumption and thus enable you to manage your home in a more energy efficient way. Apart from the obvious financial benefits this solution enables you to play a part in the global efforts to improve our environment through the reduction of CO2 emissions.
