Smart Energy Solutions, Smart Meters and Smart Lighting

Plug into the Kaa IoT Platform and manage energy distribution with the real-time precision

On the journey to the smarter, greener technologies and a sustainable planet, there is but one keystone area that is setting the framework for everything else — and that is smart energy. So far, the mass-scale implementation of smart energy systems has been rather cost-prohibitive and thus at a premium for even the best of modern cities. As a recent cost-relieving breakthrough in this slow-go area, the Internet of Things smart grid solutions have come up with a practical cure to balance out the increasing sophistication of the energy distribution networks and achieve real-time visibility into the consumption process.

The open-source Kaa IoT Platform provides essential IoT functional blocks which allow assembling smart energy solutions with both speed and seamless interoperability. Various sensors, smart metering devices, controllers, smart energy monitors, and electrical grid assets can be, almost literally, plugged into the Kaa cluster and managed in real-time over secure network connection. Kaa is specifically designed to handle large scale deployments by ensuring mission-critical fault-tolerance and high availability during peak loads.

For the local-scale IoT smart energy deployments, Kaa can be used as a master IoT platform for smart building solutions, smart home energy solutions, smart lighting systems, connected heating and air conditioning systems, and IoT smart meters implementation. Kaa provides open APIs for integration with a broad spectrum of possible hardware, and that’s why it is effectively utilized for complex “brownfield” system integrations and the IoT-over-legacy projects.

Smart grid

Smart meters are essential to efficient energy consumption and a key part of the smart grid infrastructure. Smart meters help consumers stay fully informed about their daily energy use and eliminate wasteful routines or get rid of inefficient appliances. For utility companies, the real-time visibility into energy consumption process translates into accurate billing data and the ability to balance demand against supply via flexible pricing and other policies. With the Kaa IoT Platform, smart meters can be easily implemented to support these and many other smart grid features.

Equal in importance to smart metering solutions, smart appliances are a major prerequisite for efficient energy use. Kaa is a feature-rich Internet of Things platform that allows developers to rapidly build and embed IoT applications into connected home appliances, lighting controls, HVAC equipment, hospital systems, industrial hardware, and other machinery. These applications allow users to adjust energy consumption settings, schedule equipment operations, and track billing data in real time, cutting down costs and streamlining production resource planning.

Kaa allows building smart lighting solutions with greater flexibility in regard to choosing hardware components (sensors, smart bulbs, gateways) than most of the other platforms. With Kaa, you are free to use almost any type of device which is mission-applicable for your ecosystem and you will have no issues with integration or interoperability between those devices. In addition to that, Kaa provides a distinctly richer palette of smart features for connected lighting devices than what is offered by “turnkey” smart lighting products.

For manufacturers of smart grid automation solutions and utility service providers, Kaa offers a safe and proven way to implement smart features into their systems - such as remote control, cross-device interoperability, and fault management - and manage diverse energy distribution networks in real time. As an open-source platform, Kaa gives an advantage of full ownership over the final solution, including the source code, to its users and ensures unobscure APIs for integration with other software and hardware systems.
