CHICAGO / SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Green Edge Technologies has announced the launch of its EDGEhome solution, offering homebuilders, multifamily developers, and consumers a true home intelligence system with the most cost effective, easy-to-use, and advanced home energy management available to date without requiring recurring fees.
Designed by a team of highly experienced former Motorola executives, designers, and engineers, EDGEhome provides consumers with real-time energy monitoring and control of every point of electricity usage in the home through a modern and intuitive user interface. The system is comprised of wireless devices, a tablet, and mobile applications that allow homeowners to monitor and control electrical usage and lighting throughout their home. The wireless devices are installed in every junction box and behind every switch and outlet in the home, providing ubiquitous coverage. The EDGEhome system’s unique technology allows homebuilders to significantly reduce electrical wiring while realizing substantial savings in construction costs.
“EDGEhome is the answer for residential homebuilders who want to provide their customers with the most advanced and cost efficient home intelligence system available,” said Scott Steele, CEO and founder of Green Edge Technologies. “Because of EDGEhome’s innovative design, disruptive cost structure, and wire elimination technology, new home builders enjoy an unbelievably low net system cost. The market needed a solution with true intelligence at a price point that could reach the mass market – that’s why we created the EDGEhome system.”
EDGEhome’s intuitive user interface and large, wall-mounted display give consumers individual control and monitoring of all electrical outlets and lights in their home. With the ability to view energy usage of the entire home, each room, or at an individual outlet level, users are finally able to see where they are using energy, allowing them to save money through reduced consumption. The EDGEhome system also provides consumers with tips on how to save additional energy, and will even intelligently automate energy reduction for consumers, simplifying their busy lives.
At a cost point that enables the system to be put into every apartment or condominium, EDGEhome also increases the marketability of multifamily dwellings, boosting revenue and occupancy. To the landlord and building manager, the system reduces common area and vacant unit energy consumption, automatically provides notification of burnt out light bulbs, improves tenant safety by monitoring entryway locks and provides easy communication with tenants via their tablet interfaces.
The EDGEhome system is fully certified by Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL), has completed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) testing and is ready for installation in new developments.
