Partnership provides residential customers and utility providers with unprecedented level of granularity in information and control
MONTREAL, QC (April 27, 2016) – CaSA, a company reinventing the concept of responsible energy management has partnered with mnubo, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) Data Analytics company, to deliver real-time actionable insights to thousands of smart home customers and service providers.
Through this partnership, mnubo’s IoT analytics platform integrates with CaSA’s connected appliances and smart applications, providing actionable intelligence for optimized energy consumption.
There is a tremendous amount of energy stored in residential appliances, which CaSA recognizes, can be used to offset peak demand on the electric grid. In fact, Natural Resources Canada has shown that the size of Province of Quebec’s winter peak demand for two hours, estimated at 39 GW/85 GWh, is the equivalent to the space and water heating in all of Canada.
Putting this partnership in practice, residential customers can reduce their electricity bill, without compromising comfort and safety, while utility providers can better anticipate costly energy demand bursts during peak-period use.
“mnubo’s IoT analytics is an out-of-the-box solution that can be deployed rapidly, enabling our team to focus on the most strategic aspects of CaSA’s solutions,” explains Martin Fassier, Product Director at CaSA. “Not only are we getting the peace of mind of a platform that can scale to millions of appliances, but it also gives us access to advanced data science and machine learning capabilities”.
“We are extremely excited to be working with CaSA’s team in enabling efficient Energy Demand Response systems. CaSA’s Caleo thermostats and water heater controllers are unique products that generate an impressive amount of data. It’s a privilege to bring our expertise to such a key sector” stated Frederic Bastien, CEO of mnubo
mnubo’s SmartObjects, powered by AWS IoT, is designed to manage connected objects and analyze various aspects of IoT data from an ingestion, modeling and storage perspective. SmartObjects focuses on delivering business outcomes (ROI) that answer key business questions (KPIs) for IoT product manufacturers and IoT service providers. It helps CASA extract valuable insights from their connected product data by providing automated reports and dashboards that help them understand product usage, performance, failures, operating conditions and other critical KPIs.
With mnubo running on AWS IoT, CASA has access to a managed cloud platform that lets them easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to mnubo’s SmartObjects for advanced analytics.
