Use cases of smart energy management NETIO

NETIO means professional products designed for industry and businesses. NETIO smart sockets are manufactured in Prague (Czech Republic – European Union).


NETIO smart sockets with a remote control function are used to switch on and off various devices in a testing lab. Control takes place using the NETIO web interface or any M2M protocols supported by the SW used in the lab. The aim is to dynamically control the devices without the need to connect or disconnect them manually.

Usability: Electricity billing in the server houses

Mining servers of the server house's clients are connected to NETIO smart sockets with consumption metering. Cryptocurrency mining servers have a high electricity consumption. The server house needs to charge its clients for the electricity actually consumed. The per socket consumption metering feature, implemented in our NETIO devices, is used for this purpose.

Movie theaters

The audio system in a viewing room of a multiplex consumes electricity even when no film is being shown and no music is playing. The customer uses NETIO 4 to disconnect individual parts of the audio system. When there is no show, there is no need to power the audio system.

Approximately 38% of electricity is saved.

Back-up air-conditioning

The customer operates a small server room with a poorly designed air-conditioning that sometimes stops working. The temperature in the room is measured with an IP thermometer (a third-party product), and a simple Lua script checks the temperature every 10 seconds. Whenever the temperature rises to 25°C, a backup air-conditioning unit is switched on to lower the temperature again.

Smart IT infrastructure / WatchDog

NETIO 4 smart sockets detect Internet connection failure.
The WatchDog function can automatically reset the power to a switch, router, or microwave link.
Another frequent use is to restart IP cameras whenever a camera stops working.

Datacenters use NETIO smart outlets IEC320 for automatic reset the power to a switch, router, etc.

Multimedia shows

A company that creates multimedia shows for businesses likes to use NETIO 4 smart sockets to control lighting and similar effects.

With NETIO products, there is no need to worry about the type of connection to be used (wired LAN / wireless WiFi), more complex effects can be written in Lua on the spot, and so on.

Environmental applications

NETIO 4 smart sockets make it easy to implement a “night” or “weekend” mode.

Smart sockets know how many people are present in the shared office space, and unused desks can be disconnected from power.
