The Budderfly solution meters and controls energy usage at the point of consumption. Budderfly creates a facility grid using IoT electrical measurement and control devices that maximize energy savings. Each Budderfly IoT device includes a specially designed power measurement circuit that is coupled with a reliable communications system to deliver real-time consumption and control functionality. Budderfly IoT devices are specifically designed for multiple applications such as lighting, plug load, HVAC, motion sensing and light sensing, using the existing wireless building communications infrastructure to create a dedicated network of energy monitoring and energy consuming devices known as the Budderfly On Premise Energy Network.
Each Budderfly solution is specifically configured, designed and installed based on need and building infrastructure configuration. Budderfly’s hosted software environment collects consumption data, providing intelligent control and reporting so energy managers can see exactly where energy is being used. By tracking energy consumption across the entire enterprise down to an individual light switch, outlet, thermostat or power strip, customers can pinpoint gaps most energy management solutions don’t see.
