SALISBURY, Md. (Oct. 16, 2019) – A new Delmarva Power program is helping customers turn their home into a "smart home," providing new tools and information that can save customers even more money and energy all year long. Delmarva Power's Smart Home Pilot Program provides participating customers with a free Smart Home Kit packed with devices that can help customers take steps to reduce their energy usage and identify where energy may be wasted in the home.

Becoming part of the Smart Home Pilot is about more than just saving energy and money. Joining the program also helps customers save time by making everyday household tasks more convenient. All of the Smart Home Kit's energy-saving devices connect to a gateway hub that is included in the kit. The hub empowers customers to automate tasks they would normally handle manually, like setting the temperature or turning lights on and off.
Customers can also get energy-saving tips based on their unique needs. They can choose to get alerts when doors or windows are opened, or other motion is detected, when they are away from home—so they can stay in control of energy use, no matter where they are.
Enrollment is determined by a screening process and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
