iHaus App scenarios with smart meter data make your building intelligent and help to save energy. With the integration of the Discovergy Smart Meter into the iHaus ecosystem, users have access to data that Discovergy determines via the intelligent electricity meter. Smart metering controls energy consumption by showing the iHaus traffic light when the produced solar power on the roof is sufficient or not.
If more energy is generated than is currently needed in the house, the resident receives a message that it would now make sense to start the washing machine. In addition, smart lamps (from Philips Hue or IKEA) indicate the recommended action by flashing green and/or by sending a text output from the SONOS loudspeakers.
If the iHaus light lights up "red", it becomes clear that the family should now use electricity more sparingly - because it no longer comes exclusively from photovoltaic systems or power storage devices, but must be purchased from the public power grid at a cost of 30 cents per kilowatt hour, for example.
If several devices such as adapters are connected to certain consumers or an electric car with charging station, the scenario can even go one step further. Because in the iHaus App, if-then rules, so-called TRIGGER, can be created very easily. "If there is excess energy and the weather remains stable, then the electric car could be charged," could be one such automated scene.
Example: With power cells on the roof of the house, the electric car charges itself with solar energy. This protects the environment and saves money. The total power consumption is displayed via Discovergy in the iHaus App. The TRIGGER can be used to prevent the need to purchase additional power when charging the Tesla from the grid. For example, if the washing machine is running, the loading process on the Tesla is paused and vice versa. This means that all devices in the Smart Home, including the smart car, can be charged and operated in an energy-efficient manner.
As a leading full-service provider of smart metering solutions, Discovergy aims to contribute to the success of the energy transition with its products and services. Real-time data acquisition provides direct customer benefit through greater transparency, device-specific consumption information and the possibility of optimising own consumption.
The company, which is based in Aachen and Heidelberg/ Germany, already has its own smart meter gateway (Meteroit) and is already making digital electricity and gas meters intelligent. The range of services includes nationwide metering point operation for electricity and gas, visualisation and billing solutions, but also complete packages - for example for the realisation of tenant electricity projects or intelligent metering systems.
Discovergy's customers include energy consumers (private, commercial, industrial, chain stores), municipal utilities, energy suppliers, network operators and mobile phone providers.

Energy consumption and production of devices or systems are recorded in real time and sent to Discovergy's server.
The raw data is securely stored, processed and evaluated by Discovergy using highly specialized algorithms.
Users see their data live via web or mobile app and receive smart notifications of unusual values.
Saving electricity is that simple: Discovergy replaces your old electricity meter with an intelligent electricity meter (smart meter) - including energy consulting. This will reduce your electricity consumption by up to 20 percent and reduce your energy costs sustainably.
Based on your individual consumption profile, you will receive advice and tips on how to save electricity and money with little effort.
With Discovergy Smart Meters you always have your electricity costs in view. High additional payments are thus a thing of the past.
Effectively use or sell generated energy by yourself. If you know your system, you can save or gain a lot of money.
With our app, you always have your personal energy assistant at hand and can check everything relaxed while you are on the move.
Are the devices switched on? Is the refrigerator damaged? With the energy monitoring you always know what is going on at home.
Since 2008, the metering system has been completely liberalised by the "Law on the Opening of the Metering System for Electricity and Gas". This simply means that you can freely choose the operator of your electricity meter, just like your energy supplier - even as a tenant. Switching to an intelligent electricity meter from Discovergy is child's play. We take care of the coordination with your network operator and the installation of the smart meter at your home.
Order your Smart Meter at www.discovergy.com. Discovergy will coordinate the meter change with your network operator.
Installation of your new intelligent electricity meter by a certified electrician on your desired date. The installation takes about one hour..
The smart meter connects automatically to the Internet and transmits the measured values securely to the portal for evaluation.
Using intelligent electricity meters: In the first step, the smart meter collects the actual consumption data. This is already the intelligent evaluation - no additional sensors or adapters are required in the household.
Classify your consumption: Electrical household appliances such as washing machines, dryers, irons or televisions leave a specific fingerprint in the consumption data. This is because they all have a special consumption pattern that becomes apparent when the data is correctly analyzed.
Visualize consumption: Your individual power consumption is visualized in Discovergy's web portal. And it can be traced seamlessly, in real time and even weeks later. More transparency is not possible.
Save cash: With Discovergy's real-time visualization, you always have your costs in view. You save money if you consistently switch off standby consumers, replace old appliances, defrost the refrigerator in good time or take other measures.
