To cope with the recent increase of energy consumption in homes and to achieve efficient usage of the distributed power generation, there has arisen a novel concept of i-Energy home energy management. Toward realizing it, the authors have designed and implemented a smart tap, an intelligent power strip with communication, power sensing and control(More)
This paper describes the construction of a smart outlet network as a system for automated energy-aware services utilizing various sensor information. With high-granularity sensing of power consumption of each electrical appliance in home, and with environmental (humidity, temperature, light) sensors and a motion sensor installed on the smart outlets, the(More)
In this paper, the authors discuss a power allocation management system to maximize user's Quality-of-Life, keeping total power consumption within a limited amount of available power, which is implemented utilizing smart outlets, a controller and a power allocation algorithm. We can treat power allocation for energy-saving and reducing peak load as the(More)
