Enphase and Nexia Cooperate on Evolution of Smart Solar Homes, Enabling Monitoring From Smartphone

1927

Enphase and Nexia Home Intelligence cooperate to develop smart home energy monitoring. The partnership is aimed at integrating the performance data from rooftop solar PV systems using Enphase’s microinverters and making it accessible via the Nexia Home Intelligence platform. The smart home energy monitoring will offer builders and homeowners a home intelligence solution that integrates not only home automation capabilities but also renewable energy production data. 

Enphase Energy (NASDAQ: ENPH) and Nexia Home Intelligence are working together to develop smart home energy monitoring. The partnership is aimed at integrating the performance data from rooftop solar PV systems using Enphase’s microinverters and making it accessible via the Nexia Home Intelligence platform. The smart home energy monitoring will offer builders and homeowners a home intelligence solution that integrates not only home automation capabilities but also renewable energy production data.

Nexia Home Intelligence already offers a single platform that allows consumers to control products throughout their home, including locks, lights, thermostats, cameras, and sensors, from their smartphone or computer. With the Enphase collaboration, the company will enhance the management and monitoring aspects of home-energy use by including energy production data for the first time. 

“As the importance and penetration of solar power increases every year, we have been looking to bring renewable energy generation information into the data accessible via Nexia Home Intelligence,” stated George Land, director of engineering for Nexia Home Intelligence. “With Enphase’s industry-leading microinverter technology, and especially our ability to interface with the Enphase Enlighten API (application programming interface), we are excited about developing the ability to integrate solar energy production data and monitoring into our Nexia Home Intelligence platform for homeowners.”

“The relationship with Nexia represents the perfect joining of smart solar and intelligent home technologies,” commented Raghu Belur, vice president of products and strategic initiatives at Enphase.

Lennar, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, sees the value of these joint efforts and already includes the Nexia Home Intelligence platform and a solar-power system with Enphase microinverters as standard features in many of its new-home communities.

“Residential solar and home automation used to be costly and often complicated add-ons, but the innovative collaboration between Enphase and Nexia allows Lennar to bring advanced living to buyers at all price points,” commented Fred Stefany, vice president of customer experience at Lennar Ventures. 

Nexia will be showcasing the Enphase System at CES this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
