With peak mode, customers are able to control their consumption by automatically turning off their most energy-consuming devices when a certain peak value is reached. You can now choose between two peak modes: direct or predictive.
- With direct peak mode, Niko Home Control will control devices based on real-time peaks and act as a fuse protection mechanism.
- With the new predictive peak mode, devices will be controlled based on the average consumption in 15-minute intervals (the same value that energy providers use to calculate the capacity tariff). On top of that, this mode takes into account the highest month peak so far. If that peak exceeds the previously defined peak value, it will be used as the new default peak value of that month.
The reactivation delay feature in peak mode has been replaced by a minimum deactivation time of 10 minutes. Devices are re-activated one by one when your energy consumption drops below a pre-configured value. In case a device should be turned off for a longer period, you can configure this via the programming software
