Current Clamps Measure Energy for Small Businesses

July 1, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

SmappeeSmappee unveiled its Smappee Pro energy monitoring and control system for small and midsized businesses. Using advanced algorithms, Smappee Pro tracks energy consumption down to the commercial appliance level. It also maps and compares the energy usage at different offices for businesses with multiple locations.

Born out of the smart home market, Smappee Pro has nine inputs for current clamps, which measure the energy consumption of a business. The technology also uses Comfort Plugs, which are adapters that fit between an office tool and the power point to enable automation capabilities. The current clamps are clipped around specific cables in the fuse box. Communication with the Smappee cloud is handled via Ethernet and optionally Wi-Fi or 4G/3G/GPRS via USB dongle.

Smappee Pro’s key features include:

Real-time Visibility: Business owners and managers have access to the Smappee Pro Web portal and mobile app (available on Android and iOS) that show real-time information of their office’s energy flows and costs, across multiple offices.

Actionable Insight: With real-time visibility, users can spot energy guzzlers, triggering device replacement or behavioral changes.

Intelligent Control: Smappee Pro allows users to control specific office appliances remotely from their mobile devices. Users can also create automated schedules and commands.

Solar Energy: Smappee Pro measures solar production. It also visualizes the cost-savings of using solar energy, helping business owners see their return on investment.
