Cost-Effective Residential Solar Monitoring Now Available from North America's Commercial Monitoring Leader

"DECK Residential" includes a cellular modem for quick and easy installation--at the lowest price point ever from DECK Monitoring!

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The popular DECK solar monitoring solution is now available at a competitive price point for residential solar power installations.

With DECK Residential, customers get the key benefits of the DECK Monitoring solution with just one device:  the I-210+c socket meter from GE. This meter includes a cellular modem, so the installer won't have to deal with communications wiring and IT connections. The DECK Residential package also comes with a 5-year data plan from Verizon Wireless Services, so customers can truly have a "plug and play" experience with installation and deployment. A full installation may be accomplished in as little as one hour!

DECK Residential includes a suite of software tools that make it easy for project developers to manage fleet deployments. These tools include interactive portfolio view maps, as well as an online logistics center to track hardware shipments. DECK Residential also includes powerful analytics that allow users to easily monitor performance for a full portfolio of projects.

With this product, residential monitoring customers can now access the same top quality customer service and display graphics that have made DECK Monitoring a success in the commercial scale monitoring marketplace. A recent industry survey conducted by GreenTech Media recognized DECK Monitoring as the North American leader in new commercial-scale sites monitored for the second year in a row.

DECK Monitoring has also released a new socket meter solution for simple solar projects in the commercial market segment. This new product--"Commercial Light"--utilizes the kV2c socket meter from GE. As with DECK Residential, Commercial Light comes with a cellular modem and a 5-year data plan from Verizon.

Each monitoring solution from DECK Monitoring includes two web-based displays:  the public-facing Dashboard, and the secure private Admin Panel. The Dashboard provides end users with a data readout for their solar power system that is attractive and easy to understand. The DECK Dashboard is ideal for screen savers, or for a kiosk display in a building lobby or other public areas.

The DECK Admin Panel is intended for project developers. Registered Admin Panel users can see detailed analytic data for all their monitored systems in one convenient web display. The Admin Panel includes a suite of project management tools to assist with fleet deployments. The Admin Panel also includes automated performance alarms that allow users to remotely monitor their entire portfolio of solar power projects.
