In our ever-changing world of technological advancements, our energy needs have never been so complex. The technical certainties and engineering paradigms of the past 70 years are being challenged  by the dawn of the Internet of Things, opening new ideas and new possibilities considered not a decade ago the realm of science fiction. Electricity no longer drips down from the plant to your light bulb, it now flows in a hyper complex environment of regeneration, storage and alternative energies.

To better assist north-American utilities in tackling the challenges ahead, CaSA develops a software and hardware suite meant to enable swift and smooth integration of the residential sector in the so-called smart grid. By keeping comfort and security at the core of its solutions, CaSA can offer added value through efficiency, remote control and metering analysis to the end user and utility alike.

 

In today’s market, environmental preoccupations occupy a similar if not greater place than economics. What utilities decide now will shape tomorrow’s future and CaSA will be there to play its role in this emerging new energy order.

CaSA offers a variety of consumer products meant to control and meter electricity. Thanks to it’s embedded technology, Caleo came to be the world’s first line-voltage thermostat controllable via WiFi, without any added cabling or gateway equipment.

CaSA also declines this technology for water-heater control and monitoring, enabling demand-response capacity without compromising occupant’s comfort. Other products will soon join the lineup, bringing pool pumps, spa heaters, EV chargers and many more to the cloud.

 

With it’s unique double-layer encryption scheme, CaSA’s cloud is as safe as can be for all devices connected to it, without having to consider specific local security settings or port forwarding from the end user. A variety of interfaces and APIs allow users to come up with their own functionality, using IFTTT for example, to have other smart home equipment interact with CaSA-enabled products. Utilities also enjoy backward compatibility for proprietary communications protocol to integrate the CaSA cloud into their DRMS or can simply rely on OpenADR commands which enables secure exchanges without exposing the end user. The online CaSA dashboard is available for any web browser, on a desktop or laptop, or through our mobile applications currently supporting Apple and Android devices.

With CaSA connected products, the consumer takes control of their electricity bill. Better information makes for better decisions and while no CaSA device can make an appliance more efficient, they will eliminate wasteful habits by making them stand out and offering a variety of solutions to fix them.

With CaSA enabled analytics, the utilities now have an unprecedented level of granularity in information and control over residential loads, without ever compromising the comfort level of the occupants and without having to build an entire IT department from scratch.
