PassivEnergy Controls Your Heating Wirelessly – Reduces Your Energy Bills


New UK start-up PassivSystems have launched their energy monitoring and control system at CES. The set-up comprises of wireless sensors, electricity power monitors and heating controllers – all brought together on an easy to manage on-line interface.  Watch the video after the jump.

Brand new British company that aims to dramatically improve home energy efficiency is launching at CES Unveiled. Newbury-based PassivSystems will showcase its pioneering PassivEnergy home energy management system.

Set to be available from March 2010, PassivEnergy connects via sensors to your heating, hot water and electrical appliances, and monitors activity via an individual online account. By learning about your regular movements, the intelligent control system will then ensure that you make the most efficient use of energy possible, only using services such as hot water when you need them. PassivEnergy automatically makes the most efficient use of energy throughout the home and doesn’t make extra work for the user.

PassivSystems’ world-class solution to the global problem of home energy use won it a place at CES Unveiled, the pre-event media showcase at the world’s largest technology event. It was chosen by UK Trade & Investment, the government body promoting British business in international markets. As one of ten winners of a UKTI competition, it will exhibit in Las Vegas on 5 January.

‘Everyone wants lower energy costs but few people have enough time in the day to become their home’s ‘energy manager’. Simply giving people more information about energy consumption is not a solution.,’ explains Colin Calder, CEO, PassivSystems. ‘PassivEnergy sets a standard for a new way of living. By incorporating our technology into their existing home setup, consumers can dramatically reduce energy waste and cut their household bills at the same time, all with minimal effort on their part. In future, legislation will require consumers’ homes to be more energy efficient – PassivEnergy is an easy, inexpensive way for people to cut energy wastage and energy bills without huge changes to the way they live.’

Control — PassivEnergy is built around you and your family. Tell it how you live your life, and it’ll manage when you need to use energy, and when you need to save it. Our Adaptive Occupancy Control system understands when you’re in, and when you’re out. It understands that you have different needs if you’re asleep, or awake. You can even tell it when you’re going on your next holiday.

Carbon — By managing your heating and hot-water more carefully, and by controlling your appliances, PassivEnergy™ reduces energy that’s wasted in your home. Wasted energy is energy that’s used but not useful – energy that’s heating your house whilst you’re out, or heating water that goes cold. By reducing wasted energy, you reduce your carbon footprint. It’s as simple as that.

Costs — If you’re wasting energy, you’re paying for something you don’t need. PassivEnergy saves you money. As a home improvement, it is quite possibly the best value you’ll ever buy.”

    I wonder how this will compare with what AlertMe are currently doing and the Hearing Controller that they are due to launch.

    What a total waste of money this system is – it works no better than my old system.
