Aztech In-Home Display

The Aztech In-Home Display empowers you to take charge of your energy use and costs.

The easy to use Aztech In-Home Display enables you to monitor your whole home electricity usage. It shows you how much electricity you are using, when you are using it and how much it costs. Purchase at https://www.myaztech.ca/buy

The Aztech IHD provides accurate, real-time electricity use information direct from your Smart meter. You never have to update pricing or Daylight Savings time changes as they are automatically updated.

The Aztech Light Arc: Conservation information at its simplest

The light sweeps from left to right across the Aztech’s Light Arc. The color changes as your electricity rate changes; and the speed of the movement increases as your electricity use increases.

Feature rich and easy to use

The Aztech displays current electricity usage, Quick Read, 24 hour and 28 day screens, as well as detailed summary screens for each time period and tier price. In addition it will display electricity generation information, where supported by utility companies.

Take a tour around your home with the Aztech In-Home Display

Note: If you are an industrial or commercial user with a ZigBee transformer meter, the meter may need to be configured by your utility to allow the IHD to display usage data properly.  This should be confirmed prior to placing your IHD order.

No hassle installation

  • Communicates wirelessly to the Smart meter on your home (check out this short video about Smart meter communication).

  • No utility or electrician installation required – just plug it in!

  • Then, charge the integrated battery for four hours before turning on your Aztech (your IHD is designed to be used while plugged in, but the battery enables Quick Reads*).

Start conserving electricity

The Aztech has the features you need to help raise your energy awareness. It is designed to give feedback about your energy use that you can take immediate action on.

  • Reduce your usage when the Light Arc is moving fast, and when the Light Arc indicates your are in a period of high prices.

Quick Reads

  • The Quick Read function helps your root out the energy hogs in your home (see Conservation Café for information on how to use this feature).

  • Simply do a Quick read before and after you turn on an appliance (try this during different price periods) and record the difference.
