Control4's energy display
Control4 is another start-up entering energy management from another business--in this case, home media management. The company in January plans to release an energy display (seen in the middle) that can give a real-time read-out of electricity usage and control heating, cooling, and other appliances. It works in a wireless home network communicating with thermostats and appliances plugged into wireless network-enabled sockets.
The company plans to open up an app store for the platform so people can access Web services, such as Flickr, from the same interface, said Collin Breakstone, director of business development in Control4's Energy Systems group.
