POUNCE Solutions: Real Estate Developers

POUNCE® helps my tenants save money, which makes my locations a better value.”

Peak Demand
–A charge added to a commercial electric bill that is based on the peak power consumed over the billed month. The example bill shows a total rate of $9.90 per kW of demand.
–Peak demand charges contribute about 20% to the client’s commercial electric bill.
–Eight different coffee makers and water coolers/heaters were all programmed to turn on at 6am.
–The total load at 6am was nearly 10kW. At the rate on the example bill, this contribution adds about $99.00 for the month.
–The loads were staggered using Time-Of-Day setup and Occupancy detection for turning on the loads that were located in different areas throughout the building.
–By limiting each device to its own 15 minute interval to turn on, the peak demand can reduced by over 75% of the 10kW.
Additional Benefits
–More discrete control of the loads leads to better energy use. When the rooms that use some of these loads are never used throughout the day or week, even more energy is conserved.

POUNCE Systems: Power and Temperature Thresholds

Mike explains how the POUNCE® System interacts with temperature and power loads.



POUNCE Systems: Occupancy Detection

POUNCE® Systems lets you use energy when you need it, and manage or reduce your use when you don't. Efficiently controlling heating, occupancy, device interactions at any time of day, from your office to your cell phone at home. In this video, Mike explains how Occupancy Detection works to efficiently create lighting policies, overall reducing how much you spend in electricity every month.


LEED v4 performance standards emphasize continuous monitoring. POUNCE Systems seamlessly provides continuous monitoring that is locally and remotely accessible.

Actual Temperature Data

One of the POUNCE® Systems installations includes devices in a room with exterior walls. Device 008F is located on the exterior wall and device 0044 is on an inside wall about 10 feet away.

As you can see from the POUNCE® Dashboard graph, the maximum recorded temperature for device 0044 is 44°F and the minimum temp is 17°F. The other device showed an average temperature of 72°. This is a pretty good indication that the exterior wall is lacking insulation.

It’s almost uncanny to track the red temperature line in the bottom plot vs. the CEWD temperature in the top plot.
