PETALUMA, Calif. — Enphase Energy Inc. and Ingersoll-Rand Nexia Intelligence LLC announced that they are collaborating on smart home energy monitoring offered by Nexia™ Home Intelligence, a brand of Ingersoll Rand and leader in home intelligence and automation. These efforts are aimed at integrating the performance data from rooftop solar photovoltaic systems using Enphase® microinverters and making it accessible via the Nexia Home Intelligence platform. This will offer builders and homeowners a comprehensive home intelligence solution that integrates not only home automation capabilities, but also renewable energy data.
Nexia Home Intelligence brings together home automation technology into a single, easy-to-use platform, said the company. Nexia subscribers can control products throughout their home including thermostats, locks, lights, cameras, sensors, and more, all from their smartphone or computer. By collaborating with Enphase, a leader in residential solar technology, Nexia Home Intelligence will enhance the management and monitoring aspects of home energy use by including solar energy generation data.
“As the importance and penetration of solar power increases every year, we have been looking to bring renewable energy generation information into the data accessible via Nexia Home Intelligence,” said George Land, director of engineering for Nexia Home Intelligence. “With Enphase’s industry-leading microinverter technology, and especially our ability to interface with the Enphase Enlighten API (application programming interface), we are excited about developing the ability to integrate solar energy production data and monitoring into our Nexia Home Intelligence platform for homeowners.”
“The relationship with Nexia represents the perfect joining of smart solar and intelligent home technologies,” said Raghu Belur, vice president of products and strategic initiatives at Enphase. “With the recent launch of our fourth-generation Enphase System, this collaboration provides another example of how Enphase continues to expand its offerings for U.S. residential solar customers.”
