Phillips Hue LED lighting controlled by a solar inverter

IMEON ENERGY announces the release of a new innovative application that can be installed free of charge on IMEON solar inverters! The “LED Smart Lighting” application allows IMEON inverters to interact with the smart lights from Philips Hue range of products. What is the point of having a solar inverter communicate with the lighting in a home?
The objective of this application is to send information using light, to encourage owners of IMEON inverters to optimize energy savings by adapting their electricity consumption habits!
IMEON ENERGY developed this particular application after observing that typical users of IMEON ONLINE monitoring platform reduced their electricity consumption by an average of 10% while those who do not monitor their solar systems kept their electricity consumption stable. The conclusion was that users who are aware of their electricity consumption are strongly inclined to reduce it. It was therefore interesting to innovate and find a way of transferring messages to users in real time, in a non-intrusive way, without them needing to login to the monitoring platform.
By making the user aware of the times when electricity consumption is elevated as well as the times when the solar installation with energy storage is capable of high energy output, IMEON enables the user to slightly adapt his consumption habits in order to maximize the energy savings. As mentioned above, the impact of such awareness can result in a 10% reduction in electricity consumption, allowing the users to increase the energy autonomy of their homes.
