Home Awareness and Energy Management Company enerG Launches at 2013 CEDIA Expo

Easy-to-sell and install, Z-Wave-based home awareness and energy management system provides integrators with an excellent hardware margin and lucrative recurring monthly revenue

BURLINGTON, MA – August 30, 2013 – Home awareness and energy management brand enerG Corp. is tapping the 2013 CEDIA Expo to make its channel debut (Expo booth #428). The company’s Home Awareness System (utilizing the Z-Wave platform) allows homeowners to control, customize, and automate all connected devices in the home and receive important system notifications on their Android and iOS devices.

The enerG starter package consists of a gateway hub, a thermostat and two smart enerG switches at an MSRP of $429, with additional fees for integrators’ installation and enerG’s monthly service plan (starts at $29.99). The system can easily be expanded to include lighting control, garage door access, keyless entry and wireless HD viewing.

Homeowners manage the operation of their connected devices at the enerGhome.com portal. There they can monitor how much energy has been consumed by device and the whole house in both watts and dollars based on their specific utility provider. This allows them to set energy goals, and accordingly, make adjustments to improve consumption.

The company’s mobile app mirrors the portal, making the system readily available on the go. For example, the homeowner can monitor energy usage, adjust thermostats and view video from the app, even opting to select and view multiple locations.

For even greater home control, the system incorporates Geo-Fencing, a technology that makes it possible for the homeowner to define rules or to adjust settings when people leave or approach the home (for example automatically adjusting HD-viewing or temperature, etc.). The technology uses GPS in the homeowner’s smartphone to trigger the settings.

Hardware
The enerG system is scalable and affordable. The pre-packaged systems are as follows:
• $429 MSRP Starter Package (gateway hub, thermostat and 2 smart enerG switches)
• $599 MSRP Connected Home Package (adds lighting and whole house smart meter)
• $1,299 MSRP Home Awareness Package(adds HD Viewing & Cloud based services up to 4 terabytes of recording & viewing video)
• $1,499 Home Awareness Plus Package (adds keyless entry)

Additionally, as many like products as desired can be added to the corresponding enerG package for no additional service fee.

Software
In addition to the hardware and installation costs paid to the integrator, the homeowner remits a service fee to enerG each month to access the system. The fees start at:
• $29.99 per month (Starter and Connected Home Packages)
• $39.99 per month (Home Awareness, and Home Awareness Package Plus)

The integrator receives a commission from enerG each month the system is active.

“We are trying to change the way integrators bring products to the end-user,” says enerG President Greg Brett. “Until now, recurring revenue service (RMR) offerings were only available through security-based systems and maintenance contracts. We found a way to bring to market a range of offerings that customers want and create a RMR stream for the integrator in doing so. This is a complete solution where the integrator makes profit on the product, the installation and the services. enerG provides the software platform, takes care of the monthly billing and markets back to the end-user to help the integrator get back into the home for new opportunities.”

“This type of product line is what our dealers need to expand their base of business,” says Steve Presti of Easy Access Distribution, a New England enerG distributor. “We have done a soft launch of the product in July and dealers have really embraced it. The packages offered are easily sold and have multiple add-on possibilities when specifying a system for a home or small business.”
