IoT Water Heater
Connect a standard electric water heater into the IoT and lower operating costs, increase longevity and enjoy utility incentives without sacrificing comfort.
Solution allows a homeowner, utility, or service provider, remote control of the heater and monitoring of its energy use, temperature and health.
How it works
The Smartenit MLC40-WH controller connects to a gateway via ZigBee. The gateway in turn, connects to the IoT via Ethernet or WiFi.
The controller directly turns the heating element on or off in response to commands from the gateway. It also monitors the temperature of the tank, and (optionally) of the outlet pipe. An optional liquid presence sensor placed at the bottom of the tank, alerts in case of water leaks.
