The Chilicon Power GATEWAY integrates a Z-Wave module to enable it to communicate with any other Z-Wave enabled appliance. This opens up a world of opportunities from power consumption measurement of individual appliances to thermostat, ligthing and security control applications.
The Z-Wave eco-system has been thriving thanks to its interoperability allowing any Z-Wave enabled device to communicate with any other module or controller. This means that our GATEWAY can control a myriad of devices to expand its capabilities well beyond solar monitoring and into complete home automation and monitoring.
Here is a list of extensions that could be added to the GATEWAY:
- Power Sensor for any appliance or for the entire home
- Smart Energy Switch to control and monitor appliances
- Switches and Dimmers as well as wall receptacles for lighting and other functions
- Door locks for security and monitoring
- Motion detectors and sensors
- Temperature Sensors and Thermostats
- and many more...
