Introducing a revolutionary solution from sonnen that combines home automation and clean energy to create the ultimate smart home powered by solar energy.
Energy Automation with ecoLinx.
ecoLinx is the first intelligent energy management system that merges clean energy with home automation to create energy automation. The ecoLinx sleek, all-in-one energy management and clean energy storage solution now integrates directly with leading front-end home automation systems — including Crestron and Control4 — and Eaton intelligent circuit breakers to fully manage a home’s energy usage.
How energy automation works:
The ecoLinx and energy automation software enhances home automation systems by integrating them with residential solar and energy storage, bringing clean tech to smart homes and enabling the ecoLinx to manage how energy is consumed and devices are powered throughout your home. By combining the sonnen ecoLinx intelligent energy management and storage system with energy automation software and intelligent circuit breakers, you can create the ultimate smart home powered by the cleanest energy available.
Key applications of energy automation
Smart Configurable Backup
By working with the home automation software and Eaton intelligent circuit breakers the energy automation software allows you to choose how long your backup power will last during a grid outage and automatically manages how your stored energy is used. Sample options include: Powering major living areas for a short period of time (2 hours), powering core household loads for a medium period of time (4-6 hours) or powering essentials loads only for a long period of time (12+ hours).
Smart Weather Forecasting
ecoLinx uses smart weather forecasting to detect severe weather and automatically increase the amount of energy stored in your battery. Storing more energy ensures that you have plenty of power available to keep the lights on and your family safe in the event of an outage.
Smart Demand Control & Load Management
By using advanced software and technology the system automatically monitors your home's energy usage in real time and adjusts how and what is powered without sacrificing your comfort. Overall, this allows you to use cleaner, less expensive energy generated during the day and re-deploy it during peak hours (like at night) to ultimately minimize costs and reduce your carbon footprint.
Configurable User Interface
The ultra-smart, flexible, user-friendly energy automation software in the ecoLinx provides a highly customizable and flexible user interface that integrates with leading home automation systems, including Control4 and Crestron, to manage how your smart devices are powered within the home - including controllable lights, shades, thermostats and more.
24 Hour Solar Self-consumption
The ecoLinx seamlessly integrates with new and existing solar to provide access to the benefits of solar energy production 24-hours a day! sonnen's smart electronics manage energy use throughout the day, detecting when there's excess power and storing it for use at night.
The ecoLinx stores energy when it is cheap and abundant and uses it to power your home when energy is more expensive and less abundant. By better managing energy usage throughout the day, ecoLinx uses advanced features - like smart demand control and smart load management - to lower electricity bills, decrease carbon emissions and maximize clean energy use throughout the day.

A safe, all-in-one intelligent energy management and storage system
The battery – safe, durable and long-lasting
The ecoLinx intelligent energy storage system uses lithium-iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery technology, one of the most reliable, safest and longest-lasting storage technologies currently available. LiFePO4 is one of the most popular technologies for stationary storage systems due to its uniquely high chemical stability and resulting high reliability, durability and long lifespan.
Our ecoLinx intelligent energy management and storage systems are warrantied to last for 15,000 cycles / 15 years and are UL Listed, ensuring safety and performance for your home.
All-in-one Design - sleek, smart and customizable
The ecoLinx is a complete intelligent energy storage system - ready for connection. This means that inside of every ecoLinx you'll find not only the extremely durable battery modules but also an inverter, the intelligent CPU, <100ms Automatic Transfer Switch, balance of systems and an intelligent energy manager that controls it all - in one sleek unit.
Each ecoLinx unit is scalable in size from 10kWh up to 20kWh and multiple units can be installed in parallel with separate protected loads panels for each unit.
Note: The ecoLinx system does not include the Eaton intelligent circuit breakers, the energy automation software or the Crestron and Control4 home automation systems.
