How it works

Thanks to this API, a Schneider Electric partner can remotely have access to energy & temperature data collected by different WiserEnergy. Of course, this partner must prior be granted access to the systems he wants to request the data for.

A site is a dwelling . In a site there could be one or several systems, depending of the complexity of the installation. A program is a set of sites that makes sense to be monitored as a whole for the partner. It could be a building, a set of buildings, an eco-district, … The data that can be queried through the community API are: -Energy consumption (Wh) by hour/day/month -Instant power (W)

Consent of the site occupant must be collected by the partner. When the occupant gives its consent, it means he agrees to have its energy & temperature data collected by the system. Once the partner has collected the consent from a site occupant, he must record it in through the Schneider Electric API. Only after that, the data are started to be collected & stored in our system.
