Energy Automation by ADAPT.  Custom built for energy automation applications.  Monitor and control your energy consumption and change your profiles automatically when power events happen. 

Adapt Energy

The Adapt Energy Driver for Control4 is designed to work with the Adapt Energy Panel to automate energy management functions. 

Adapt Energy Panel

The Adapt Energy Panel monitors weather and controls breakers in a home to protect devices and conserve energy.  In addition, pairing an Adapt Energy Panel with a sonnen ecoLinx, energy storage system, provides battery monitoring, grid loss awareness, and battery backup management.

Adapt Energy and Control4

Integrating Adapt Energy with a Control4 system provides additional functionality to further manage energy in the home.  The Adapt Energy Driver provides triggers for weather events, grid power loss, and ‘event profiles’ which can be used by Control4 to adjust lighting, shades, thermostats, and more. 



  • 3 States which can be used to quickly customize notifications (Normal, Grid Loss, General Alert).
  • 16 Individually controlled circuit breaker connections.
  • Custom button that can be located on any Control4 Sub Menu.
  • Use Composer Variables and ‘when/then’ events to trigger actions to protect the home and manage energy consumption.
  • Use Control4 Favorites tab to create an energy automation dashboard.
  • 2 different icon styles.
  • Access to the Sonnen ecoLinx battery dashboard when connected to a Control4 T3 touch screen.
