Home energy monitoring and control systems
Another technology trend at this year's Solar Decathlon is the use of energy monitoring and control systems. Here, team California competitor Timothy Sennott shows off the building's home control system. It shows how much electricity the house is producing from the solar panels and how much the home is using at a given moment. It also gives people a way to control different functions, such as the automated shades, lighting, and heating and cooling system.
