AlertMe Smart Energy
AlertMe Smart Energy puts the consumer in control of the energy usage in the home. By seeing, monitoring and understanding how much electricity your home is using – or more to the point, wasting – you can save energy easily. The power to make simple but highly-effective changes is at your fingertips. AlertMe Energy enables you to see exactly how much electricity is being used in your home. Tailored tips are received in your personal online dashboard to help you make small changes that will make a big difference to your energy consumption.
More than half of a home’s energy is used for heating. AlertMe enables energy savings by only heating your home when it is necessary. If you have forgotten to turn it off, you can do so whilst at work or out shopping. With AlertMe Heating you can use text messages and straightforward in-home heating controller to manage your heating regardless of your location. You can also monitor and adjust the temperature in your home easily – especially if you are due back home and would prefer a warm reception while saving up to 20% on your heating bill.
AlertMe reached customers through utility channels and became indispensable to those utilities for their Smart home platform and services. This combined with its leadership in the smart home led to the successful exit of the company to one of its customers, British Gas, in 2015.
