SimpleHomeNet adds two new SmartGrid products to its ZigBee Smart Energy (SE) Certified product line

SimpleHomeNet announced today their Smart Energy Plug-in Load Controller and Smart Energy HAN Range Extender have been awarded ZigBee SE certification completing a suite of products that interface wirelessly with the ESP and a Home Area Network.

July 26, 2010, San Juan Capistrano, CA, SimpleHomeNet announced today that their Smart Energy Plug -in Load Controller and their Smart Energy HAN Range Extender have been awarded ZigBee SE certification. This increases their SE certified product line to three, completing a suite of products that interface wirelessly with the Electronic Service Portal (ESP) to enable Home Area Networks (HAN) to successfully communicate with the Smart Grid.


The Smart Energy Plug -in (120V/15A) load controller (ZOE -MP1) allows control of appliances and lighting based on demand response and price events from a utility. Load management is also possible with consumption measurements via an integrated highly accurate energy meter. The ZOE -MP1 plugs into any indoor outlet and complies with UL508 and CSA22.2#14.

The Smart Energy HAN Range Extender (ZOE -RE) is a ZigBee mesh router that extends the range of the network and adds redundancy. The built -in high -power radio joins the SE network and then facilitates the joining of devices that may not be within range of the Energy Service Portal (ESP).

Combined with their previously SE certified Smart Energy Wireless Triple -Relay Metering Demand Response Load Controller (ZOE -MLC1) which controls high power loads (up to 240VAC at 30Amps) via demand response or price events from the electric utility, the addition of these new products furthers SimpleHomeNet's committment to successfully bring Smart Energy products to market in a timely manner.

"With three ZigBee SE certified products to date, SimpleHomeNet continues to be a leader in SmartGrid product development for both the retail and OEM markets," says Al Choperena.
