Innovation Award Winner GreenWave Reality with Smart Home Services – #CES 2012
One CES 2012 Innovation award honoree is GreenWave Reality. They create energy management solutions for a smarter home. From smart plugs, to LED lights and the ability to control from multiple sources.
While at CES, Todd Cochrane got a chance to interview Greg Memo from GreenWave Reality, a global innovator in the emerging smart home services market including home monitoring and elderly care. On show is their home energy management solution that uses wireless (ZigBee) plug-in devices to monitor and control power consumption.
The system is not just limited to power management as other remote monitoring and control technologies such as lighting and video can be included. The complementary iPad app allows the homeowner to select individual rooms within the property and make adjustments if necessary – for example, a thermostat could be turned down or the timings changed to alter when the heat comes on.
