Kamstrup has launched the OMNIA suite, which the company says is a comprehensive platform encompassing network communication, meter data management, smart grid applications and smart meters.

Part of the new suite, the Kamstrup OMNIPOWER smart meter features in-home capabilities via a transparent communication channel; a communication module (e.g., ZigBee) can be installed in the meters, and price signals and text messages can be sent to in-home equipment for further processing. In addition, the Energy Monitor App provides an instant picture of any unwanted power consumption.

"At Kamstrup, we believe that a true smart grid system should include features and options that make consumers more energy-savvy,” says Lars Bo Kristensen, the company’s division director.
