Blue Line Innovations and Eragy Announce Strategic Partnership for Home Energy Management
Blue Line Innovations, the makers of the PowerCost Monitor™, and Eragy, a leading provider of energy management software applications and services, today announced a strategic partnership for delivering home energy management solutions., 11/01/2011 - Under the terms of the partnership, Blue Line Innovations and Eragy will be providing a suite of home energy monitoring and control solutions for consumers, energy efficiency professionals, Control4® dealers, and utilities.

With existing PowerCost Monitor hardware, Eragy’s free myEragy application offers several layers of engagement options for homeowners including web and smart phone data presentation, enabling homeowners to save up to 20% or more on their monthly electric bills.

The PowerCost Monitor features a universal optical sensor that slips over the outside of virtually any electricity meter and then feeds that energy data in real-time up through a WiFi Gateway to Eragy’s secure web portal. It’s a simple, step-by-step installation process with no electricians required.

The Eragy platform also includes a number of proactive alerts and notifications via email and text/SMS messages. Homeowners can receive alerts on their projected energy costs, when they exceed their monthly budget, and even get notified if their internet service is malfunctioning. Eragy also supports utility-specific energy alerts, such as notifying PowerCost Monitor users when they are close to moving into a higher rate tier.

Easy to Install Energy Management Solutions for Control4 Applications

The combination of Eragy’s third generation energy management app for Control4® systems, Watt’s on Now! and the Blue Line PowerCost Monitor, provides Control4 dealers with an easy to install energy management solution for homeowners. The PowerCost Monitor connects wirelessly to a Control4 system, enabling Control4 dealers to install energy management systems in both new and existing homes.

Homeowners can then harness the power of Eragy’s software and Control4’s affordable IP-based home control system to control thermostats, lighting, and other systems in the home to maximize energy savings. Users can conveniently monitor their energy usage from their TV screen, tablet, Control4® touch screen, smart phone, or web browser, providing consumers with numerous options for monitoring and managing their energy consumption.

Professional Solutions for Utilities and Energy Efficiency Contractors

The combination of the Blue Line PowerCost Monitor and Eragy’s myEragy PRO platform enables utilities to rapidly deploy the first phase of consumer energy monitoring programs without the need for smart meters. myEragy PRO also provides a scalable platform for utilities to further reduce peak demand on the grid via Eragy’s award-winning Intelligent Demand Management applications.
