Vesternet.com - the ZigBee eCommerce store – has packaged several of the first commercially available Smart Energy Certified products for companies to test real world smart metering applications.
ZigBee Smart Energy is rapidly becoming the de facto standard of choice for smart grid deployments worldwide. It enables wireless communication between utilities and common household devices such as smart thermostats and appliances and improves energy efficiency by allowing consumers to choose interoperable products from different manufacturers giving them the means to manage their energy consumption more precisely using automation and near real-time information.
In order to enable Utilities & other technology companies to test ZigBee applications with real commercial fully operational products, Vesternet.com now offers a Smart Energy Tester Kit comprising four of the first products to undergo certification:
• 1 x Rate$aver In-Home Display (LS Research)
• 1 x CTW200 Thermostat (Computime)
• 1 x Pioneer Z100 Thermostat (Energate)
• 1 x PoweTab In-Home Display (Energy Aware)
