See what your organization is actually paying to power computers before you move forward with a complete implementation. Through our eiPower Cloud Services Assessment, we measure the power used by a group of computers for 18 days. Then, we’ll share with you the average energy usage, cost and carbon emissions per day per computer — and what you could have saved with eiPower. It’s as simple and safe as installing a smart phone app.
We send you our IoT software sensor, a standard 10mb MSI installation file, which you distribute to up to 500 computers. Our highly secure sensor has passed every security review.
We measure the amount of kWh usage, and time each computer could have gone into low power mode—saving electricity, carbon emissions and energy costs.
You tell us how much you pay for power, including peak/off peak and winter/summer rates.
We deliver an assessment report showing the average kWh usage, cost and carbon emissions per day—and the savings you could have achieved with eiPower.
You can assess up to 500 computers, although 250 will produce sufficient data. When fully deployed, we will capture the data for 18 days before running the report.
No, the IoT sensor does not change any desktop settings, or interfere with IT maintenance or user productivity.
eiPower only captures power event data, which is stored in a SQL Server database that can be encrypted. The eiPower IoT sensor is the only component that initiates a connection to the server—and that sensor has been used in highly secure government and defense contractor installations. All data is transferred securely via SSL. Additionally, all cloud components conform to both AWS and Microsoft Cloud Security standards. Both government and commercial cloud platforms are available.
Data captured includes the computer and monitor model, the power state duration of time the computer spent in various power modes, and the present power scheme. This data is used to calculate kWh usage, cost, carbon emissions and potential savings. Data can be sent real time or on a schedule. Sending from IoT sensors is randomized and rarely exceeds 1.2KB.
The computers you select as your assessment candidates should represent daily business use. We don’t recommend using IT computers because they do not represent user configurations and are modified by users with administrator rights. Similarly, computer lab, and kiosk PCs are not good candidates because they do not represent the daily use of your business.
We recommend installing the IoT sensor on a few computers first. EIP will send screen shots of the computers from the Cloud Server for verification before you deploy the sensors to your remaining assessment computers.
