Yes! Not only can the IO-HUB can easily work with most forms of solar, generation, and energy storage, it optimizes how this energy is produced, stored, and consumed.
Yes! The IO-HUB is the only technology that holistically manages and tracks not only electricity but other fuel intake.
Absolutely. Leveraging storage technologies, not only can the IO-HUB island a home from the grid, but it creates a virtual essential load panel, prioritized by the owner, so that the owner can decide what circuits stay on.
The IO-HUB is able to communicate with zigbee relays and smart appliances if already present, yes.
IO controls truly are the brain of a microgrid. Without intelligence guiding the demand shifting and peak shaving, a battery is simply a backup solution. Controls also safeguard the proper use of an ESS.
