People Power Pro Energy 2.0 to Enable Delivery of Intelligent Smart Home

By Ken Briodagh February 22, 2018

In a recent announcement, People Power, an IoT software company providing white-label solutions for home security, energy and care services, has released Pro Energy 2.0, which is designed to help energy service providers deliver improved demand response (DR) initiatives, energy-centric connected home solutions, and the management of large scale consumer IoT deployments.

People Power has created patent pending, energy-centric services for the smart home, each configured with AI-enabled microservices that deliver modular functionality for intelligence and performance. By learning key activities and patterns in the home, configurations of microservices can help services understand when to optimize energy consumption.

People Power Pro Energy 2.0 is designed to enable DR services with customizable microservices to address consumer opportunities at scale by delivering intelligence to an array of devices for targeted energy programs with thermostats, lighting, load controllers, plugs, switches and more

Pro Energy 2.0 incorporates three new services important to energy service providers and their customers:

  • Enterprise Program Management Service is responsible for orchestrating multiple synchronized DR events and time-of-use pricing schedules across an aggregated user base. The service acts as a VEN/VTN and understands negotiations in individual households to load-shift energy around a community to broadly balance comfort and energy savings.
  • DR Home Management Service is responsible for implementing DR activities in the individual home and acts as a VEN. It manages all energy assets in the residence, learns comfort preferences, communicates with occupants and negotiates with the utility service for optimal comfort.
  • Enterprise Weather Management Service connects to weather conditions and forecast data to determine when to trigger manual DR events as a VTN. It connects directly to the Maestro command center, allowing administrators to define geocode, temperature, humidity and heat index thresholds that trigger DR events.
