The Curb M10 energy monitoring platform from Elevation was designed to better support energy efficiency for homeowners and institutional operators of single-family rental properties. It features advanced communication capabilities and a simplified installation process and represents an essential addition to Elevation’s proprietary line of Curb devices.
Curb M10 is equipped with 10 energy sensors (CT clamps) that can monitor all the key electrical activities in a home. This enables for accurate tracking of appliance energy usage and aids homeowners and operators in lowering energy costs through actionable insights delivered via the Curb app, web interface, and email reports.
M10 also will track solar production data with its continuous cellular connectivity capabilities and monitor high home energy consumers, such as HVAC systems, EV chargers, water heaters, pools, stoves/ovens, clothes dryers, and lighting.
M10 is the latest device to connect with Elevation’s Curb cloud-based, AI-enabled smart energy engagement platform. When deployed in a home, Curb receives energy usage data from thousands of sensors in real-time and mines this information to provide actionable insights on energy efficiency patterns and device health. For instance, Curb M10 could predict an HVAC outage or malfunction in advance, mitigating expensive and frustrating repairs or replacements.
M10 represents the latest evolution of the Curb product line and pairs years of available Curb’s intelligent, actionable home energy data with new features focused on improving connectivity, reliability and ease-of-use.
Rental operators are increasingly seeking solutions that will enable them to invest in the efficiency and longevity of their portfolio homes for both the betterment of the environment and their bottom line. Curb M10 offers the SFR industry a scalable, easy-to-deploy solution for lowering operating costs and emissions with real-time data monitoring and insights.
Similar to existing products in the Curb family, M10 is also designed to empower residents to optimize their relationship with energy through its user-friendly interface and advanced communication capabilities.
“Curb M10 arrives at a time when eco-friendly features continue to be preferred by both renters and homeowners nationwide,” said Greg Fasullo, CEO of Elevation. “Across most SFR portfolios, energy bills are the second-highest cost for tenants after rent. We’re excited to introduce the M10 as a scalable solution for portfolios of all sizes that will deliver measurable cost-saving benefits for operators and residents. With reliable connectivity, a reduced installation time and a more seamless configuration interface, M10 will bring energy efficiency insights and invaluable real-time data to consumers and operators.”
With energy prices expected to remain high throughout 2023, M10 is poised to become an essential and impactful solution for the residential real estate industry. In the face of a historically turbulent housing market, there is a tremendous opportunity for both operators and residents to take greater control of their energy use, carbon footprint and costs with efficiency and technology upgrades.
