Save on your energy bill
Printers, TVs, coffeemakers, washing machines, laptops and audio sets – every device with a standby function uses a small amount of energy, even if it is switched ‘off’. All of that unnoticed energy use adds up considerably. Electronic equipment is also often left on while they are not being used. Up to 30 percent of electricity consumption in-house is wasted in this manner. Which is unfortunate, because you are paying for it.
But not with Plugwise: Plugwise is the platform you can use to set up your energy consumption the way you want it. With Plugwise, your household appliances work when you need them to, and when they’re ‘off’ they really are off. That makes Plugwise good for your wallet and good for the environment.
Numbers tell the tale, switching is saving
The power of Plugwise is that the platform gives you insight into your energy consumption on device level. In that way, you can see precisely how much energy you are using, when and on what. That, in turn, enables you to make smart choices that provide the greatest possible energy savings, without the need for you to make any sacrifices in terms of living comfort. In no time, you can prepare switching programmes for your connected appliances that fit with your lifestyle. With Plugwise you can:
- Run your washing machine and dryer at night to profit from the favourable off-peak tariff;
- Turn off your internet modem and audiovisual devices on days you are not at home; switch off your peripheral equipment when you shut down your computer;
- Light your entire living room in a cosy, stylish manner, and switch it off again, with one switch.
