The Wiser energy management system allows homeowners to reduce or shift energy use during peak times and improves grid efficiency, according to the company. Available initially through utility providers, the offering includes: a programmable thermostat that communicates usage and pricing alerts via changing color screens, a control center and data dashboard designed to serve as the real-time communication portal from the utility to the consumer, and load control that secures and manages large loads. Additionally, the Wiser Internet Gateway communicates home electrical use between components, and the Wiser Smart Plug intuitively manages small device electricity use. All products comply with the ZigBee Smart Energy standard.
