The IHD allows utility customers to track their energy usage in chart or graph form based upon kwH used. Screens are customizable to provide any type of energy awareness information that a customer may require, including carbon footprint data, total energy consumption, and comparative analysis with typical energy use.
The large graphic energy display changes color as energy prices or events change. It can receive custom real-time messages from the utility company regarding billing, energy prices, and more. There is an environmentally-friendly internal backup battery that allows for the IHD to be portable and can provide homeowner notification even after a power outage.
The IHD can control thermostats and adjust setpoints. Additionally, it can control HAI's Load Control Modules for items like pool pumps, water heaters, lighting and more. The IHD can be set up to act as a ZigBee ® Coordinator or Router depending upon the utility company's desired topology.
