Futurehome helps you be kinder to the environment and your wallet. You can keep track of how much power you use and adjust consumption accordingly to be more energy efficient. You get an overview of your electricity consumption in real-time and a historical overview straight from the app.
Note: For the system to store power data, you need the Event Collector. It should be installed on your Smarthub by default. If you do not have it go to Settings → Playground → Download Event Collector.
Energy management in the app
To access the energy panel in the app, tap on the energy tile in the dashboard. Then use the top navigation bar to switch between the tabs:
- Consumption overview
- Energy statistics
- Power Manager
When you open the energy panel from the dashboard, you get an overview of the real-time consumption categorised by the type of device. If you want to see consumption in real time at the unit level, you can click on each category. If you have a HAN meter, you can press the large circle to get the total consumption in your home.
The graph icon (middle button in the top navigation bar) takes you to the energy statistics.
You can choose whether you want to see the statistics for a whole month or a specific day. You can deselect categories at the bottom of the screen to filter out other categories.
Pro-tip: Press and hold the graph to see info around the specific time or day.
You can also set up automation based on energy consumption.
The lightning icon in the upper right corner takes you to Power Manager. It is the Futurehome service created to optimise energy consumption. It helps you save money on your energy bills as it optimises heavy loads such as water heaters and car chargers.
