Norway-based Lyse Energi used IBM MessageSight as a message hub enabling customers to control the heating, lighting and alarms in their homes from smartphones or tablets. The result is up to 20 percent energy savings and greater comfort, convenience and safety—especially for the elderly.

Business need
To make heat, lighting, alarms and other home features controllable from a smartphone or tablet, Lyse Energi needed an easy-to-use message hub that could handle high message volumes and scale easily.

The company deployed IBM® MessageSight because it could accommodate up to one million simultaneous connections without clustering, and it is simple to manage.

Utilities can optimize power use and delay grid expansion, and customers can reduce energy costs by 15 to 20 percent, while increasing comfort, convenience and safety—especially for the elderly.
