Converting water heaters into smart devices


In the EU, standby losses of electric water heaters are equivalent to the emissions of 2.5 million cars. Excess CO2 and unnecessary cost  can be avoided by using a simple plug adapter on existing appliances.


Klugit’s plug & play IoT device converts existing electric water heaters into smart devices. Using AI, the device learns the hot water usage routine and heats up water when needed, thus avoiding thermal losses and reducing the electricity bill by up to 60 EUR/year per family (offering a clear return on investment in year 1). A Wi-Fi connection enables demand-response operations like load-shifting, peak shaving or priority switch to renewable energy.


Klugit’s technology has seen commercial interest from major distributors, utilities and manufactures seeking to commercialize their solutions. After a brief Kickstarter campaign, over 130 devices were sold in just 22 days!
