Overview

  • Remotely control electricity and reduce consumption via the internet
  • Designed for permanent hard-wired applications
  • Save energy by turning off lighting and outlet circuit with lots of vampire or leaker loads

Essential Info

The Smart Circuit 20 allows you to take control of your electricity consumption, access data, switch loads, reduce your carbon footprint, lower your energy bill, and automate load shedding and KWH reduction via a user-friendly web interface. The Smart Circuit has been specifically designed for permanent hard-wired applications on 100V-250V, 20A, 50/60Hz circuits. It is a sophisticated, scalable, yet affordable energy management system ideal for sub-metering, remote monitoring, and automatically reducing electricity consumption in residential and commercial applications. The Smart Circuit will automatically output live data (as fast as every second) which can be viewed in table format, in a graphical display, or it can be downloaded as a csv file. Smart Circuits are ideal for lighting circuits, outlet circuits with lots of vampire or leaker loads, large hard-wired appliances such as electric hot water heaters, washer/dryers, HVAC systems, pumps, blowers, and refrigerator/freezers. Smart Circuits are also ideal for home automation projects where it is important to remotely turn things on or off. Smart Circuit 20 interfaces to a PC via a USB connection, and to a network via an integrated Ethernet jack. Fast, intuitive and easy-to-use, Smart Circuit 20 quickly and accurately measures 100 - 250 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 20 amp circuits.

Typical Uses
Smart Circuits are ideal for lighting circuits, outlet circuits with lots of vampire or leaker loads, large hard-wired appliances such as electric hot water heaters, washer/dryers, HVAC systems, pumps, blowers, and refrigerator/freezers. Smart Circuits are also ideal for home automation projects where it is important to remotely turn things on or off.

    Installation
    Smart Circuit's are installed similarly to 'circuit breakers', but don't involve the safety aspect. In other words, our Smart Circuit controllers will typically be installed in a panel enclosure box, similar to the enclosure that houses circuit breakers. Alternatively, it can be installed in a double gang box and wired to an existing outlet to control specific loads, such as a window air conditioner.

    Energy Saving
    Smart Circuit 20 provides active energy savings. With an internal switching relay, the Smart Circuit can turn off power to the end load based on user configurable rules. Rules can be based on single or multiple Smart Circuits. These rules and their associated application include:
    • Reduce Costs - Effective when your utility has TOU (time of use) rates, where they charge a higher rate during peak times. Smart Circuits can automatically "load shift" so loads are used during off peak times.
    • Reduce Peak Charges - Commercial accounts are charged a "peak charge", which is based on the maximum amount of kilowatts used during the month, even if it was only for half an hour. Lowering your peak usage directly lowers your monthly bill. Smart Circuits can automatically "shed loads" to keep your peak usage under a threshold. For example, connect 25 Smart Circuits to your account, and configure our website to automatically turn off specific loads when the total power across all 25 Smart Circuits exceeds a threshold you designate.
    • Lower Consumption - Many utilities now have tiered pricing rates, where higher usage is billed at a higher rate. This often happens toward the end of a billing cycle, which might be daily, weekly or monthly based. Smart Circuits keep track of total consumption and can automatically turn off non-critical loads once the high rate tier is activated.
    • Manual on/off - For security reasons, rebooting servers, or while on vacation.
    Wireless
    Connect a wireless adapter (for example the Dlink DWL-G730AP or the TrendNet TEW430APB, both configured in client mode) into the Smart Circuit's Ethernet port, and the Smart Circuit can be used wirelessly.

    Please Note: It is recommended that an electrician install the Smart Circuit. It is very similar to installing a wall switch or outlet.
