Saving Power with Wireless Motion- and Temperature Sensors

SASSENHEIM, The Netherlands, - This is the reasoning behind all of Plugwise's activities. Rightly so, as user data from Plugwise customers show that on average almost half of the electricity used is outside office hours. Switch your appliances on and off when necessary. Even when you are not present. The Plugwise system centralises control of energy consumption of individual devices. You can...
