SMART ENERGY DEMAND ALLOCATION REALTIME
humanised IoT-based smart system
What is SEDAR?
SEDAR in Bahasa Malaysia means ‘To be alert’.
Smart home/office systems integrate technology to monitor, report and control building energy consumption. However, a system with the flexibility to cater for people’s dynamic and personalised energy use in buildings is urgently needed. Studies have shown that a good energy management culture contributes significantly toward sustaining energy management best practices and reduction of electricity bills.
SEDAR is the first ‘humanised’ smart energy system that is designed to educate and drive users to conserve energy.
Based on the fact that people’s positive behavior and culture is the key to saving energy, Smart Energy Demand Analysis and Reduction (SEDAR) was invented.
SEDAR is the first humanised IoT-based smart system that integrates building management, with autonomous end users’ actions enabled by sensors and controllers of building electrical appliances. Behaviour-influencing energy saving features in SEDAR such as competition and gamification, notification, rewards, incentives and penalty are vital in driving users to conserve energy. SEDAR also provides data analytics on user consumption patterns for organisations to analyse and design effective energy management and improvement programs.
Changing human behaviour and building a positive culture can be as impactful as it is challenging. While it is possible to install sophisticated and expensive technology to reduce energy consumption, lack of awareness and the absence of a strong drive to save energy could lead to technologies being overridden, misused or even becoming a white elephant. Studies have shown that influencing positive human behaviour through competition, rewards, incentives and even penalty are vital in motivating and encouraging people to save energy, and ultimately sustain a culture of conservation.
Backed by years of research, SEDAR has been designed to drive positive behaviour among energy users.
Most smart building automation systems are in fact, very rigid in their centralised control and automation. When it comes to balancing energy saving and work space comfort and preference, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for users. For example, while some users may be more comfortable with air-conditioners set at 24oC , others may prefer lower or even higher temperature settings.
SEDAR provides a game-changing solution by allowing users to personalise their energy management environment and experience.
Built with IoT-based smart energy system features , SEDAR enable users to remotely switch on/off energy appliances, monitor consumption, control settings and monitor motions using mobile-apps or web-based apps.
The key to a successful sustainable energy improvement programme is to MOTIVATE and DRIVE users to conserve energy.
Designed with smart features such as competition and gamification, notification, rewards, incentives and even penalty, SEDAR enables organisations to ENGAGE and EXCITE energy users toward a sustainable energy conservation culture.
Organisation can have access to SEDAR’s energy-use big data to gain useful insights to monitor real time performance, and design strategies to reduce energy cost.
Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)
What are the components of SEDAR?
a. Hardware Part
Choose from a selection of smart energy hardware such as a smart switch, smart switch with meter, smart meter, motion detector, intelligent aircon controller and many more. We have different equipment specifications based on your needs. If your organisation already have smart energy hardware, we can see the possibility to customise it with the SEDAR system.
b. Software Part
SEDAR system consists of the Admin Module, User Module and Guest Module. The Admin Module is a web-based system where the admin levels can be set to control which building or area.
The Admin can control, register, monitor, and control the Users energy appliances and usages. The Admin can also set energy quota and create games or competition to penalise or motivate users. This will ensure users are always alert and taking charge of their energy consumption.
The User and Guest Module is a web-based and mobile-based system where users can monitor and control their assigned area energy appliances. The user also can give some permissions to their Guest for temporary access to their energy systems.
Users can also join the competition and be incentivised with their energy-saving actions.
