Smart power enables you to take control of how your home is using energy. Many appliances are using power continuously, and by automating their schedules, you save on energy costs and make your home more environmentally friendly. Thanks to solutions like Savant Power, you get a better glimpse into how your home consumes energy and when peak utility rates occur so you can utilize the grid during the most inexpensive hours. 

So how does it work?

The benefits of smart power

Save on energy costs

Smart power technologies offer a compelling avenue for substantial energy cost savings. By providing real-time insights into energy consumption patterns, these innovations empower users to make informed decisions about when and how they use electricity. Through data-driven recommendations, users can implement strategies like load shifting, where energy-intensive tasks are performed during off-peak hours when electricity rates are lower.

Reduce grid reliance

Smart power solutions are pivotal in reducing our dependency on traditional power grids. By integrating advanced sensors, real-time data analytics, and automated control systems, smart power solutions empower consumers to manage their energy consumption more efficiently. These technologies enable the optimization of energy usage by identifying periods of peak demand and suggesting strategies for load shifting or even utilizing on-site renewable sources.

Ensure no interruptions

Through seamless integration of backup power sources like batteries and generators, smart power systems provide a continuous energy supply during grid outages, ensuring your home’s critical operations and services remain unaffected. This proactive approach to energy management results in a resilient power infrastructure, perfect for home’s where the grid is unreliable, enhancing the dependability and stability of energy supply for your home.

Consumption trends and optimization

Electricity costs can vary widely throughout the day, usually peaking in the early evening when people are returning home from work and making dinner, watching TV, and heating or cooling their homes. Perhaps you need to charge an electric car daily, or you have a heated indoor pool. By monitoring both your usage and energy costs, smart power solutions can turn off non-essential power during peak hours, or utilize energy more during the most inexpensive hours. Not only can this save you money, but it reduces your impact on the energy grid and leads to a more eco-friendly lifestyle. 

Just like most smart technologies, your smart power unit will learn your habits, taking note of when you use certain parts of your home and for how long. The more it learns about your daily routine, the better it can work to reduce power consumption and save you money on energy costs.

Compatible with industry standards

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 established several new tax credits and rebates for home owners who invest in upgrading their homes to be more energy efficient. This $369 billion act is the largest investment designed to address climate change in the country’s history. Savant Power Systems qualify for the 30% tax credit, the Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates Program (HEAR), and the Home Efficiency Rebates Program.* Individual consumer situations can vary, so we recommend consulting a tax advisor.

Smart power FAQs

  • Which type of speakers sound the best?

    There was a time when freestanding speakers outperformed architectural and invisible speakers, but today each type of speaker can deliver high quality sound that even the biggest audiophiles can appreciate. The choice between freestanding, architectural, and invisible speakers really comes down to aesthetics and whether you want your speakers hidden away from plain sight, or if they are meant to be seen as well as heard. Working with a smart home integrator or AV expert like TSP Smart Spaces can help you decide what solutions are best for you and your lifestyle. 

  • Do I need a receiver?

    Your receiver is the core of your audio system. It’s what receives your audio signals from the source (Spotify, Apple Music, CD, etc.) and distributes them to your speakers. The receiver is the hub of everything you’re connecting, so choosing the right receiver is crucial to your audio system. You won’t need a receiver if your home uses a simple Sonos system. But if you have a dedicated media room, subwoofers, or a private cinema, a receiver becomes a required part of your setup. 

  • What speakers are best for outdoor use?

    Many speaker companies carry a line of outdoor speakers, built to weather the most extreme climates and project clearly over natural outside noises. One of our go-to solutions at TSP Smart Spaces is Revel’s Extreme Climate series. While Revel does make solutions for in-ceiling and architectural audio, we’ve found that Revel shines best with their Extreme Climate series of subwoofers and speakers. We used this solution in our Galactic Getaway project, installing subwoofers directly into a paddle tennis court. Even if you don’t have a tennis court on your property, outdoor speakers are perfect for patios, poolside, or on a rooftop garden. 

  • What audio system is best for my home?

    At TSP Smart Spaces, we primarily work with two audio systems: Sonos and Savant. Your audio system is what lets you stream from your favorite music service (Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal) to your home’s speakers. If your home doesn’t utilize other smart features like lighting and security, Sonos is probably your best choice. Sonos is very user-friendly and flexible, and is one of the few solutions for whole home audio that doesn’t require a professionally set-up AoIP (audio over IP) system. If you have a larger smart home system that you want to build your audio system into, Savant is your answer. Savant’s audio system distributes high-quality audio over ethernet and is meant to scale from a few rooms to an entire home. Professionally installed, a Savant system integrates seamlessly with your other smart home technologies in your home.

  • My home already has speakers. Can you integrate them with other smart home solutions?

    Most likely, yes. If you have speakers already installed in your home and you’re happy with the sound quality, we can work with you to integrate them into your larger smart home system. One of the biggest advantages to a Savant Music system is that it works with a large variety of speaker solutions, so you can have one brand of speakers in your home office, and an entirely different solution in your bedroom. 

  • What about home theaters?

    This is a complicated enough question we have a whole page dedicated to our private cinema solutions. From projector screens to surround sound, a lot goes into designing and installing a home theater system. But the investment is well worth it, as it brings the immersive experience of a commercial movie theater into an intimate setting in your home. If you’d like to see how a home theater system performs in person, schedule a tour of our Experience Lab, our home in SoWa that features a private cinema, the only JBL-certified theater in the New England area!
