The Wilden Living Lab is a collaboration between different stakeholders to co-create a technological idea and validate the idea through experimentation in a real-life environment.
The concept of a living laboratory is quite helpful to understand the energy usage pattern in a household during different seasons and time of the year through proper monitoring of various parameters.
The research being done through the collection and analysis of data over the next few years will inform home-building customers about the benefits of different construction methods/materials, HVAC systems, appliances, and lights available. Thermo Matrix has been instrumental in making this research happen through both support and providing a state-of-the-art Honeywell enteli HOME Monitoring System, programmed to our exact specifications. This state-of-the-art home-monitoring system, along with a collection of networked sensors, will allow for:
- Energy management and HVAC controls
- Continuous monitoring of electrical usage throughout each house
- Continuous monitoring of temperature throughout each house
- Remote access to control the system and download data at any time
