Resources: Consert Tru Smart Energy Gateway 3.1
The Consert® Tru Smart Energy Gateway (SEG) creates the only real-time data profile model of residential properties and small commercial businesses. Easily installed within smart meters, the SEG provides high-speed, two-way communications between the Consert Data Center and HAN devices located inside a customer’s premises. Achieved through customer consent, this data collection creates a symbiotic relationship between a utility and its customer providing benefits and rewards for both, such as remote data acquisition, demand response, load control, meter management, and home energy management.
