Control4 Teams with GridPoint on Energy Management and Monitoring
In an interesting product teaming, Control4 and a company called GridPoint have joined forces to allow for energy management and monitoring in the home via Control4’s Home Energy Manager software. The recently announced Control4 Home Energy Manager will provide consumers with the ability to easily control their lighting, thermostat, sprinklers, electronic shut-offs and other features through a single display. Control4’s thermostat and in-home display will be integrated in the GridPoint Platform, a software infrastructure that enables electric utilities to integrate, aggregate and control a heterogeneous landscape of devices to deliver energy efficiency, load management, renewable energy management, energy storage management and electric vehicle management solutions.
GridPoint is working with utilities nationwide including Xcel Energy, Austin Energy and Duke Energy to modernize the electricity grid.
