Thu 7 Oct 2021, 7:30pm – 8:30pm
This was an inspirational and informative talk by Andy, Samin and Nicola giving real examples of their experiences of living in a smart home. See buttons below for slides and video.
What is a smart home? If you have solar panels and a battery, or an EV that needs charging, or any other kind of energy storage, then some ’smart’ controls can help you get the most out of them. This is especially true if you also have a time of use tariff, with different prices through the day. Optimising your use helps reduce your energy bills while minimising peak energy demand is kinder to the planet too. How can you do this, what does it involve?
Our speakers (both Open Eco Home owners) are at different ends of the complexity spectrum:
Andy will explore the issues and give us an overview of what options are available, and they will all describe how their smart homes work for them. Watch this talk to find out more about making your home smarter.
