Energy Automation with ecoLinx.

ecoLinx is the first intelligent energy management system that merges clean energy with home automation to create energy automation. The ecoLinx sleek, all-in-one energy management and clean energy storage solution works with leading front-end home automation systems — including Crestron and Control4 — and controllable circuit breakers to fully manage a home’s energy usage.


How Energy Automation works:

The ecoLinx and energy automation software enhances home automation systems by integrating them with residential solar and energy storage, bringing clean tech to smart homes and enabling the ecoLinx to manage how energy is consumed and devices are powered throughout your home.  By combining the sonnen ecoLinx intelligent energy storage system with controllable circuit breakers and home automation system, you can create the ultimate smart home powered by the cleanest energy available.

Smart Configurable Backup

By working with leading home automation systems and controllable circuit breakers, energy automation software allows you to dynamically select how long your backup power will last during a grid outage and automatically manages how your stored energy is used.

Smart Weather Forecasting

Using smart weather forecasting, the energy automation with ecoLinx system detects severe weather, alerts you of a potential power outage, and automatically increases your backup power reserve, ensuring that ample energy is stored to ensure that your family stays powered and protected during an outage.

Smart Demand Control & Load Management

By using advanced software and technology, the system automatically manages and maximizes the use of clean, stored energy to offset peak utility rates and power the home in the cleanest and most efficient way possible. Overall, it allows you to use cleaner, less expensive energy generated during the day and re-deploy it during peak hours (like at night) to ultimately minimize costs and reduce your carbon footprint - without sacrificing comfort.

Time-of-Use Management

The ecoLinx stores energy when it is abundant and less expensive and uses it to power your home when energy is less abundant and more expensive. By managing energy usage throughout the day, ecoLinx uses advanced features - like smart demand control and smart load management - to lower electricity bills, decrease carbon emissions and maximize clean energy usage throughout the day.
