How does Blue CATCH work?
Traditional Solar hot water solutions are dedicated to collecting energy from the sun and using it to heat hot water. When you install Blue CATCH with your solar panels you have a system that converts energy from the sun into electricity for your house as well as electricity for heating your hot water; the best of both worlds.
Blue CATCH is more than just a dumb energy diverting device. Blue CATCH spends most of its time learning about your energy usage patterns, learning about your solar system, as well as looking forward in time at the weather. All of this information is used to make decisions on what is going to be the cheapest way to heat your hot water.
There are two parts to Blue CATCH; the diverter and the communicator.
The Diverter is installed in your meter box and is responsible for routing your solar energy into the hot water service.
The Communication is installed next to your internet router. The Communicator talks with the Diverter via the power cables in your house and sends weather information to the Diverter.
You can control when and how your hot water is heated
When you purchase Blue CATCH you get access to the CATCH Power control panel. This control panel allows you to control your hot water service from the comfort of your lounge.
At any time you can:
- Heat your hot water right now.
- Tell it to heat when the off peak power becomes available.
- Or you can tell it to only use solar power.
But the most important thing about the CATCH controls is, if you choose to do nothing, CATCH will always make the best decision for you.
The CATCH controls are shown below:
