Universal Devices Inc.'s New ISY994i ZS Series is First-Ever Commercially Available Smart Grid-Enabled Energy Management System

Encino, CA, Sep 11, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- Universal Devices Inc. (, a leading manufacturer of affordable, autonomous, Internet-accessible automation and energy management products and solutions, is now offering the ISY994i ZS Series: the first-ever commercially available Smart Grid-enabled energy management system.

Affordably priced, the ISY994i ZS Series features native support for Smart Grid meters and INSTEON devices. It is also autonomous (no server required), secure, remotely accessible, and designed for customers to install themselves.

Furthermore, for customers who have a Smart Grid-enabled meter, and whose utility provider has granted them permission to join the utility network, the ISY994i ZS Series energy management system evaluates data such as price, energy usage/consumption, and Demand/Response events, in addition to other events such as time of day, occupancy, climate conditions and more, to deliver unmatched energy management capabilities.

"The ISY994i ZS system takes energy conservation to the next level," commented Michel Kohanim, CEO of Universal Devices. "It enables proactive management of all facets of energy consumption and production, utilizing firsthand information directly from the utility meter to automatically command and control INSTEON devices based on personalized settings, thus promoting energy conservation and ultimately reducing costs." Added Kohanim: "As security and privacy of information is of our utmost concern, none of the interactions between ISY, INSTEON devices, and the environment are sent back to the utility, unless explicitly opted into a program offered by the utility".

More information on the ISY994i ZS Series Smart Grid enabled energy management system is available on the Universal Devices Inc. website at
