Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) and Ingersoll-Rand Nexia Intelligence LLC, are working together to evolve smart home energy monitoring offered by Nexia' Home Intelligence, a brand of Ingersoll Rand and leader in home intelligence and automation. These collaborative 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 offers builders and homeowners a robust and comprehensive home intelligence solution that integrates not only home automation capabilities, but also renewable energy production data.
Nexia Home Intelligence brings together the best home automation technology into a single, easy-to-use platform, allowing consumers to stay connected to what matters most. Nexia subscribers can control products throughout their home including locks, lights, thermostats, cameras, sensors, and more, all from their smartphone or computer. By collaborating with Enphase, the national leader in residential solar technology, Nexia Home Intelligence will greatly enhance the management and monitoring aspects of home-energy use by including energy production data for the first time.
'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,' stated 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,' commented 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.'
Lennar, one of the nation's largest homebuilders, sees the value of these joint efforts and already includes the Nexia Home Intelligence platform and a solar-power system with Enphase Microinverters as standard features in many of its new-home communities. The combination allows Lennar homeowners to enjoy the cost savings and environmental benefits of solar power at no up-front cost and gives them unmatched control over their home's core functions - from heating and cooling to door locks and lighting.
'Residential solar and home automation used to be costly and often complicated add-ons, but the innovative collaboration between Enphase and Nexia allows Lennar to bring advanced living to buyers at all price points,' said Fred Stefany, vice president of customer experience at Lennar Ventures. 'Enphase and Nexia's technological leadership continues to expand the range of benefits buyers should come to expect when shopping for a new home.'
