LED lighting controlled by a solar inverter

- Advertisment -

IMEON Energy announces the release of the LED Smart Lighting application (app) which enables its inverters to interact with smart LED lights from the Philips Hue range of products. The objective is to send information, using light, to encourage owners of IMEON inverters to optimise energy savings by adapting their electricity consumption habits.

Studies show the users of the IMEON Online monitoring platform reduced their electricity consumption by an average of 10%, while those who do not monitor their solar systems kept their electricity consumption stable. The conclusion was that users who are aware of their electricity consumption are more likely to reduce it.

The new app transfers messages to users in real time, in a non-intrusive way, without them having to login to the online monitoring platform. By making the user aware of the times when electricity consumption is elevated, as well as the times when the solar installation with energy storage is capable of high energy output, the app enables the user to adapt their consumption habits in order to maximise energy savings.

The LED Smart Lighting app enables IMEON inverters to change the colour of the Philips Hue smart lights to communicate with the user:

  • Red: Electrical load exceeds a user-defined threshold
  • Green: Load can be met by solar energy and/battery
  • Orange: Battery level low

All the parameters of the application can be modified by the user via the IMEON OS. ONE interface. The LED Smart Lighting app also introduces a smart dimming feature which allows the inverter to change the brightness of the Philips Hue lamps in accordance with the level of sunlight in the room.
