Title
(EN) POWER MONITORING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SURVEILLANCE D'ALIMENTATION
Abstract
(EN)
A set top box is disclosed that includes a means to detect that a television connected to said set top box is not in use, and a means to place said television into a lower energy usage state thus reducing energy consumption. Also included is a set top box including a data communication module which communicates with a communication and control module associated with an electrical appliance, the communication and control module communicates data describing the usage of the appliance and controls at least some aspect of the operation of the appliance; wherein the set top box is adapted to receive and process data describing the usage and energy consumption of the electrical appliance and to receive and process data concerning the cost of the energy at the time of consumption.

L'invention concerne un boîtier décodeur comprenant des moyens qui détectent qu'une télévision connectée au dit boîtier décodeur n'est pas en marche, et des moyens qui placent ladite télévision dans un état d'économie d'énergie, réduisant ainsi sa consommation d'énergie. L'invention concerne également un boîtier décodeur comprenant un module de transmission de données qui communique avec un module de communication et de commande associé à un appareil électrique, le module de communication et de commande transmettant des données qui décrivent l'utilisation de l'appareil électrique et commandant au moins certains aspects du fonctionnement de l'appareil électrique. Le boîtier décodeur est adapté pour recevoir et traiter des données qui décrivent l'utilisation et la consommation d'énergie de l'appareil électrique, et pour recevoir et traiter des données concernant le coût de l'énergie au moment de la consommation.
