Upgrade Your Home with a Custom Residential Energy Management System
What if your home could make you more comfortable, save you money, and help the environment all at the same time? It's possible with a home energy management system. A good home energy management system can help make your smart home dynamic and efficient while optimizing your energy usage. If you have solar panels or some other type of power generation a home energy management system can also help optimize how your home uses that power.
A home energy management system is made up of two types of components; hardware and software. You may already have some of the hardware in place in your home such as climate control, automated lighting, motorized shades, and smart outlets. What really makes the difference in an energy management system is the software. Energy management software lets all your hardware and smart devices work together as efficiently as possible. From your home energy management hub you can monitor your devices, turn them on and off, and adjust your home automation. Set schedules yourself or let your system figure out what works best for you and your home.

Advantages of a Home Energy Management System
Green Home Energy Management Technology
An eco-friendly home is not just good for the environment, it is also good for your wallet. Effective green and sustainability efforts are much more complex than just harvesting daylight and dimming lighting levels. Managing and controlling ambient lighting is only one small piece of the process. The only way to achieve meaningful reductions in energy usage and utility costs is for all systems to be completely integrated on a single, intelligent smart energy management automation platform. Increasing the sustainability value of your home will help you save on energy consumption and reduce your carbon footprint. We work closely with architects and builders who desire to execute such energy-saving ideas into their projects and to gain nationally recognized LEED certification.
Home Energy Monitoring
Understanding what’s happening in your home in an important part of home energy management. With real-time home energy monitoring, you can have a dashboard display of your Hamptons home’s energy usage to see where it’s being used efficiently and determine peak usage. Let our control systems optimize energy consumption while maintaining comfort. See calculated savings and the reduction in your carbon footprint in response to your adjustments from dimming lights or adjusting your homes’ temperature presets. Settings can automatically change or notify you whether you’re home or away.
Smart Climate Control
Smart climate control makes it easy for you to set the perfect temperature for your Long Island home regardless of the season or other conditions. Create a comfortable environment by making adjustments from the same touch screen you use to control your lights, shades, and home entertainment system. Monitor and control your thermostats from a mobile device. If you left your AC blasting when you left home or want to turn up the heat before you return on a cold day your home energy management system can handle it. Heating and cooling your home can be expensive and our climate control solutions save you energy with programmed settings and integration to a smart home automation system.
Smart Lighting Control
Lighting control in a single room or throughout your home gives you the flexibility to adjust light so you use just the right amount needed whether cooking, entertaining, or watching TV so you can save energy without compromising style or comfort. Turning the lights out when you leave a room is an easy way to save electricity, but our home energy management systems take it to the next level. Smart home technology enables your lights to automatically adjust based on time of day, whether the room is occupied or the amount of daylight coming in from your windows. Our lighting control solutions work for different sources in your home including LED and fluorescent fixtures.
Motorized Window Treatments
With motorized window treatments you can easily adjust the amount of daylight in your home to save energy while increasing comfort and protecting interiors. Automated motorized shading and drapery reduces solar heat gain whether blocking out the sun entirely or using a transparent shade to allow just the right amount of light needed in your kitchen, family room, or bathroom. The shading in your smart energy management system can even be programmed to react to other parts of the system such as temperature or lighting. Manage energy without compromising style with hundreds of Lutron window treatment fabrics and color options available to choose from.
Non-intrusive occupancy monitoring integrated with a smart technology system enables advanced energy-efficiency optimization in your Long Island home. Sensors for your home energy management system are discreetly positioned to effectively determine if anyone is in the room and trigger automatic adjustments to subsystems such as lighting control and motorized window treatments, HVAC, and small appliances. Automatically turn lights on when a person enters a room and off when he or she leaves. An occupancy sensor is ideal for rooms where lights are often inadvertently left on, such as a child’s room. You no longer need to worry that the AC is blasting or lights are on when nobody is in the room. Additionally, usage patterns over time are analyzed and sensitivity levels of the sensors are adapted accordingly.
