HomePlug C&C FAQs
HomePlug C&C is "Green tech enabled"?
Yes! HomePlug C&C and other HomePlug technologies create the basic communications network for Smart Grid and AMR/AMM/AMI initiatives. HomePlug C&C saves energy and money by enabling automatic adjustment of thermostats during peak demand times, remote monitoring to indicate lower tariff hours, street light control, automatic and remote meter reading and more. HomePlug C&C stands to provide a real, existing, robust and dependable technology to address the complexities of today and tomorrow's energy needs in our demanding energy environment.
How does HomePlug C&C work with other technologies?
There are multiple ways to implement command and control applications. HomePlug C&C goes a step further by addressing energy conservation issues that work in tandem with a utility company's smart grid initiatives. HomePlug C&C also has the ability to work together with other command and control technologies through a simple adapter. For example, bridging between commands sent from RF technologies inside the home.
HomePlug C&C will not interfere with high-speed networking choices, such as HomePlug 1, HomePlug AV, WiFi and Ethernet. Due to the ubiquity of power outlets, product companies are expected to develop technology "bridges" for seamless communication no matter which technology a consumer chooses.
HomePlug C&C was especially designed for superior performance to overcome the challenges of the powerline medium. HomePlug C&C's powerline-enabled network is more convenient than traditional wired networks and requires no additional wiring or construction.
