Welcome to the future of Energy Management Circuit Breakers or EMCB's provide by Eaton. Cinegration is proud to have developed the worlds first Control4 managed smart breaker. These breakers provide cloud-based connectivity for efficient load-monitoring and remote communication and smart energy management across the home’s many connected devices.
Update: This driver is only available for customers with sonnen ecoLinx units installed with Cinegration sonnen driver.

Smart Configurable Backup (using sonnen ecoLinx)
Users with the ecoLinx, Eaton EMCB and a Control4 automation system can benefit from the smart configurable backup functionality that provides optimal control over their home automation system. Using smart power devices like EMCB breakers allows dealers to configure the home for optimal battery strategies for each homeowner. This allows the ecoLinx to not only focus on managing excess energy production over what is consumed but further tailor the consumption based on need and priority defined by the homeowner. In the event of a power outage, the ecoLinx will provide backup power to the energized circuits. The decision as to which circuits get energized is based on the SoC of the ecoLinx and can be a part of predefined profiles set by the user’s home automation dealer. An example scenario is presented below
Turn off areas of the home like Pool pumps, hot tubs or large AC devices when utiltiy rates change. Automatically have them come back on when the Time of Use rate is at it's lowest.
|Breaker On||Breaker Off||Breaker Alert||Breaker Offline|
The eaton breakers require one additional 'slot' in breaker panel for remote trigger. Example: single pole 15 amp breaker requires 2 slots in panel, 2 pole breakers would require 3 solts. Eaton breaker panel is also required.
