The Smart Meter and Smart Grid are seen as advances that are part of the new Smart Energy market and will potentially reduce energy usage in the home. But, it has also been shown that the ability of an energy consumption display to change behaviour and reduce consumption quickly loses impact with most consumers. Thus automated “Smart Devices” are a potential key to the gaining the maximum benefits from intelligent energy management solutions.
Smart Devices are a way for ordinary electronics and appliances to communicate with each other, consumers, and even manufacturers. Smart devices may include centralised control of heating/cooling, lighting, air quality, appliances and household systems. They could be used to address ease-to-use, comfort & quality of life, energy efficiency, remote health care, food storage management, fire safety, security, home entertainment, home office, and other home applications both known and waiting to be identified.
