In the era of energy optimization and metering, people want to have a clearer view of the energy metering and energy management inside their own homes. For this reason, STMicroelectronics offers a system allowing them to monitor and manage their home energy consumption, and that has the capability to publish the energy data from home automation devices (such as smart plugs) to a remote web server. The user can consult the energy consumption data on the web server from wherever he or she is and, at home, can manage the entire system from a touch panel.
