Saving energy is increasingly important, both for the improvement of the environment and that of our pocket. That is why from XmartIT we recommend these devices to be more efficient in our smart home.
Smart plugs are an important part, they allow us to program their turning off and on, as well as controlling the energy consumption of each appliance, so that combined with an electricity tariff with time discrimination we can choose the best time to use them , for example, an electric water heater will cost us much less connected only in off-peak hours (hours when electricity is cheaper). In addition, the outlets that we recommend include a consumption meter, so we can know exactly how much each appliance is consuming.
On the other hand, we can also find a device that can be installed in the home electrical panel (with the help of a professional) and measure the general consumption of our house, thus having the necessary information to optimize consumption and see when we are consuming more electricity.
Curtains and awnings
It is possible to achieve greater energy efficiency by raising or lowering blinds and awnings and thus save on heating and air conditioning.
Although it is a high investment, it is not necessary to do everything at once and we can add little by little.
From XmartIT we recommend this motor that can move roller blinds.
