Plugwise is a platform that allows you to control your home's appliances and monitor their power consumption. You can monitor each appliance to see how much they actually consume - allowing you to make smart choices that reduce your energy consumption and give you maximum energy savings.
Plugwise Intelligent Energy Management
The Plugwise range includes a ZigBee controller, wall plugs, relays, wall switches, motion sensors and light sensors. They all work together to help minimise your energy consumption.

Plugwise measures the energy consumption of each appliance via the Stretch 2.0 controller. These readings are then sent via your Wi-Fi-(wireless) or LAN-network to the Plugwise App on your smartphone or tablet. This gives you real-time energy consumption information and allows you to control the appliances (On/Off).
Individual appliances can be controlled by wall plugs (Circle) or relay switches (Stealth).
The Plugwise system is controlled using the Plugwise Source software (Windows only) or the Stretch 2.0 controller.
During the day, or when there is no one there, the lights are switched off automatically (Scan) - giving you full control over your lighting without you having to keep an eye on it. It can also monitor temperature and the humidity levels (Sense) allowing you to automatically control your home's climate.
By using Plugwise to control and monitor your appliances you can significantly reduce your energy consumption and your energy bills!
