iControl Networks, a company focused on broadband home-management technologies, has announced that its Energy Solution is now a ZigBee Certified product using the ZigBee Smart Energy standard.

IControl says its ZigBee Certified Energy Solution is an integral part of its OpenHome Connect deployment platform, providing consumers with the next generation of home security, remote management and automation.

The Energy Solution is driven by an in-home, Wi-Fi-enabled gateway and display that wirelessly communicates with ZigBee Certified smart meters. According to the company, its solution enables users to monitor energy usage in real time, remotely manage and control devices (e.g., thermostats) from the Web or mobile devices, automate home tools, and save a minimum of $10 to $20 on their monthly energy bill.

"iControl is constantly innovating its approach to broadband home management. The addition of ZigBee Smart Energy capabilities to our solution is the next evolution in providing customers with the ultimate in home and energy management," says Paul Dawes, iControl's executive vice president and general manager of telecommunications.
