Smart Home: Check Your Home’s Electrical Appliances From Any Location

Have you ever left your home and wondered if you left the iron, stove or any other electrical appliance on that could start a fire if it is not turned off? Or have you ever had the feeling you didn’t close the electric gate on your way out and preferred to turn back to be on the safe side? These fears are very common and now, there is a way to verify that everything has been turned off and closed, through the new Wiser Energy from Schneider Electric.

This device helps you check all the electrical appliances in your home, at any time and from anywhere, as it sends a notification to your cell phone when the devices are on or off. It also helps you reduce costs on your electricity bill by monitoring and managing, in real time, the electricity consumption of each of your appliances. In addition, if you have a photovoltaic installation, it will tell you how much energy your system is generating.

Wiser Energy works easily through Schneider Electric’s Sense Square D application that, thanks to its crowdsourcing and self-learning system, shows the electrical activity, identifying all your electrical equipment through an app on your cell phone. This will allow you to know how your appliances are working, as well as which ones are consuming more energy, so you can better manage it to keep your consumption under control and, therefore, your budget safe.

Wiser Energy offers these three advantages:

  • 24/7 access: you can see what’s active in your home at any time and from anywhere.
  • Notifications: customize and receive alerts that let you know when your equipment is turned on or off, for example: when your garage door opens, when the refrigerator is turned off, or if you left the coffee maker on.
  • Customization: set energy usage goals, receive statistical reports, calculate your monthly bills and take proactive measures to obtain greater savings.

«In Schneider Electric we seek to bring the best of technology to each of the Central American homes, for this reason, we created Wiser Energy, a powerful but simple to use product for any user. It is installed in three simple steps: first it is placed inside the load center by a certified electrician, then it is connected to a WIFI network and, finally, the user downloads the application to synchronize and begin to live the experience of managing smartly, all electrical equipment in your home, minute by minute, «said Jason Iong, Sales Director at Schneider Electric Central America.

Being smart technology, Wiser Energy is also compatible with devices such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Philips Hue, among others, so you can further enhance the benefits of this new product of Schneider Electric, which is already available for the Central American market in authorized distributors.
