Why should I use myStrom if I already have Smart Metering in my home?
Smart Meters are usually installed in the electrical box or in the basement and help you better understand your total energy consumption. This information is mostly useful for Utility companies, allowing them to better plan and control their energy production.
As a customer, thanks to Smart Metering, you can get to know the total energy consumption of your home – and this can help you adapt your behaviour by allowing you to personally exercise influence on the devices in your household.
The limits of Smart Metering lie exactly there – it does not include any automatisms for switching on and off times that can contribute to savings.
You just need to configure your myStrom WiFi Bulbs once and the savings will happen automatically. Thanks to the myStrom App you have location- and time-independent control over all connected devices.
