Now it's time to look at a few more questions and a series of energy savings.

Question 1. What can be done in the face of a shortage of electricity in the country?

Digging Ebuilding spent a lot of time working on this issue. In short, there are three ways to solve this problem. (In addition to connecting additional power). First of all, you need to understand what is causing the overspending. See when there is a consumption peak (and not only for you, but also for your neighbors)

  1. Reducing consumption. This includes the purchase of more energy-efficient devices, light bulbs, and electric heaters. If the overrun is small, this will smooth out the problem, but not solve it. But this is often inefficient, as there may not be enough energy for the whole village, and it can be difficult to convince your neighbors to use energy rationally.
  2. Reservation of additional capacity. For example, using an energy storage system. Energy is stored in batteries and during peak loads is used to power priority consumers. This system can be combined with solar panels to store energy during solar time.
  3. Automation. Priority system. Automation allows each consumer to create their own order. The system can temporarily turn off non-priority consumers in case of power shortage and enable them when there is enough power. For example, turn off underfloor heating while the kettle is heating.
  4. Application of energy-saving technologies in construction. If the house is initially built in accordance with energy-efficient standards, then the cost of its operation will be much less.

Ebuilding specialists can implement any of the above ways of saving, as well as combine everything into one to achieve a synergistic effect.

Question 2. How relevant are home automation solutions from market leaders KNX ABB Beckhoff etc.?

These companies have firmly established themselves in the automation market. They offer solutions of any complexity for the most complex engineering projects. In the home segment, such functionality is quite redundant. As if you were buying a Ferrari to drive for bread. That is, if you want a proven solution from a famous brand and the price is not important for you, then you will get it. Controllers based on Bluetooth, Zwave, Wifi protocols are quite suitable for home automation. They are quite simple and reliable. On the one hand, not to empty your wallet, and on the other hand, to transfer control of your home to you.
