Control, monitor, automate and save
A Sensibo is a smart device that connects your heat pump to your home wifi. Green Mountain Power offers a free Sensibo to anyone in our eControl program.
By using a smart phone app, you can then control your heat pump from wherever you are, adding convenience and comfort.
Energy independence and savings
Once you’ve installed the app onto your smartphone, you can program your heat pump to pre-cool or pre-heat your home based on the time of day. You can tell your app to turn on your heat pump so you are comfy the moment you walk in the door.
Sensibo can be installed to control any ductless heat pump that comes with a remote control. Sensibo also needs WiFi access to operate.
A Sensibo is a smart device that connects your heat pump to your home Wi-Fi and helps you be in control and use energy smarter. By using your smart phone app, you can control your heat pump from wherever you are, adding convenience and comfort. You can even set your heat pump on a schedule, which could help you save money too.
By signing up and getting your free Sensibo, GMP will adjust your heat or air conditioning up or down a few degrees when demand for energy is highest and most expensive — in the middle of a hot summer day, for example. This will happen at most for 1-3 hours, 6-8 times a month. During these times, you will get an alert from GMP via your phone app.
As part of the program, you can always opt out. Changing the temperature by a few degrees helps reduce costs for everyone and helps the environment. That’s a win win!
Anyone who is a Green Mountain Power customer and has a heat pump can get a free Sensibo! You do need to have internet and reliable Wi-Fi where the Sensibo is installed, which is typically near the heat pump’s indoor head.
It’s free! To get your free Sensibo contact the Energy Services Team at (888) 835-4672 or learn more about the eControl Program.
Help lower costs for everyone
eControl is another great partnership opportunity with GMP. Together, we’ll reduce peak energy demand – like on hot summer days when energy is expensive. During these times, we will alert you via your smartphone that we need to adjust your heat pump a few degrees. This will reduce energy demand, providing savings for everyone and lessening impact to the grid.
