Affordable, Easy-to-Use Home Awareness & Energy Monitoring System from enerG

enerG Corp. is using the 2013 CEDIA Expo (booth #428) to unveil its home awareness & energy monitoring system (utilizes Z-Wave platform) that allows homeowners to control, customize & automate all connected devices in the home & receive important system notifications on their Android and iOS devices

BURLINGTON, MA - September 3, 2013 - The enerG starter package consists of a gateway hub, a thermostat and two smart enerG switches at an MSRP of $429 (with additional fees for integrators' installation and enerG's monthly service plan which start at $29.99). The system can easily be expanded to include lighting control, garage door access, keyless entry and wireless HD viewing.


Homeowners manage the operation of their connected devices at the enerGhome.com portal. There they can monitor how much energy has been consumed by device and the whole house in both watts and dollars based on their specific utility provider. This allows them to set energy goals, and accordingly, make adjustments to improve consumption.

The company's mobile app mirrors the portal, making the system readily available on the go. For example, the homeowner can monitor energy usage, adjust thermostats and view video from the app, even opting to select and view multiple locations.

For even greater home control, the system incorporates Geo-Fencing, a technology that makes it possible for the homeowner to define rules or to adjust settings when people leave or approach the home (for example automatically adjusting HD-viewing or temperature, etc.). The technology uses GPS in the homeowner's smartphone to trigger the settings.

• $429 MSRP Starter Package (gateway hub, thermostat and 2 smart enerG switches)
