This is Valta
Valta is a remote energy management system that can detect unused devices, identify energy waste and notify you to help you save. Simply connect valta to your home router and you can control it on your iPhone or laptop anywhere, anytime. It also provides you with your energy usage data to help you make informed energy decisions.
Easy to Save
Valta takes the guesswork out of energy efficiency by letting you understand how each device adds up to your energy bill. The system goes beyond total consumption and shows you how much energy is used against how much is wasted. You will be better informed to make more effective energy decisions. You can also customize the display value in kWh or $ by inputting your local electric rates.
The Valta app has three scheduling options to make life easier for you. Save while you're away or asleep.
- Schedule: have fresh coffee waiting for you every morning
- Timer: have your dinner heated before you arrive home from work
- Grouping: turn on or off your whole entertainment system at once
