What we offer

Powerpilot Home/Office Automation offers a complete home or office automation solution customised to your needs. Our unique solutions can automate your home to fully utilise available solar energy during the day and save energy at night.

Our smart home/office solutions predict the available energy based on expected weather, installed solar capacity, battery state-of-charge and historical usage patterns to optimise your power consumption.

The following devices can be integrated into our building automation solutions:

Lighting. Automatically switch on your lights if movement is detected, and switch off unnecessary lighting during load-shedding or when the batteries are low.
CCTV Camera Systems
Security Cameras. Connect your security cameras to your building automation, allowing you to monitor your entire home from a single App on your mobile phone.
Alarm and Security. Integrate your alarm into your building automation. Automatically switch lights on when movement is detected and switch your lights off when there is no-one in the building.
Heating and Cooling
Heating and Cooling. Automatically switch your heaters and air-conditioning on when you have excess energy and switch them off when there is no one in the building, potentially saving a significant amount of power.
Expected Weather
Weather Forecast. Optimise your energy consumption based on forecast weather or thermostats in your building.
Load-shedding Schedule
Expected Load Shedding. Ensure that you have sufficient energy stored for the duration of the load-shedding and automatically switch off unnecessary devices during unscheduled power outages.
Historical Power Usage
Historical Usage Patterns. Using your historical power usage, your expected power usage for the next 48 hours will be predicted.
Historical Power Usage
Audio and Video. Control and monitor the audio and video distributed to different parts of your home or office from various sources, including internet streaming services.

Using this information, we can schedule many tasks, such as water heating, to take place when excess solar energy is available. Unnecessary equipment can also be automatically disconnected when your battery is low.
