11 metering & Billing/CRM Europe in Barcelona: Z-Wave Alliance presented an interoperable wireless measurement solutions for the home network Copenhagen/Barcelona, November 11, 2009 the demand for intelligent control of energy consumption continued to rise. This conclusion is the Z-Wave Alliance (www.z-wave-alliance.org) after her appearance at the 11 metering & Billing/CRM Europe in Barcelona. Under lively audience interest, the Alliance showed during a live demonstration of how smart metering solutions can be integrated easily networked with other home control products in the home network and controlled. The Alliance partner Kamstrup, Horstmann, Modstrom, Flex control A / S, Danfoss, MILCOM, Kellendonk and InterVideo presented in order to show their intelligent household meters, thermostats and monitoring systems etc., all based on the Z-Wave wireless technology. Z-Wave has succeeded with the development of the advanced energy control(AEC)-framework to associate the smart-metering sector in a comfortable way with the modern home automation. This was the Alliance their stand in Barcelona demonstrate. The Z-Wave wireless standard now forms the basis of some 350 home control devices of leading manufacturer.
These range from the intelligent data acquisition on electricity, gas and water meters in home displays up to intelligent gateways and Web interfaces. In this way, the energy consumption as well as CO2 emissions can be reduced sustainably. Because the consumer always has the exact overview of its electricity, water and gas consumption, and know what time its devices need how much energy. Live Demo: Z-Wave communication between the booths the live demonstration and interaction between the individual exhibition stands of Alliance partners made clear: through the built-in Z-Wave chip to communicate and interact with each other all the smart metering solutions of the different Alliance partners. All devices integrate thus seamlessly into any home network. In this way, consumers receive complete control and a high level of transparency in domestic energy consumption. So presented its electronic counter systems for comfortable reading of consumption data, for example, the company Kamstrup.
