Intelligent metering to offer dwellers a ‘home smart home’

(£0.5m project value)

The Smart Aggregation for Smart Homes (SASH) project combines sensing, electronics and ICTto enable “smart” homes.

The original development behind SASH was made by Johann Siau and his team at the University of Hertfordshire as a tool for research into energy conservation and smart homes ( The hardware developed for the project is also used for teaching students about embedded systems and control. In 2009 the project won the UK heats of the Microsoft Imagine Cup competition.

The SASH consortium was formed to further develop and commercialise the solution, bringing together University of Hertfordshire, BRE and two UK SMEs. The consortium then successfully bid for funding from the TSB’s Smart Homes competition.It is now undertaking further developments to deliver SASH as a cloud-based smart-home service aggregation platform. The project goals are to demonstrate converged smart-home energy services based on linking devices, sensors and appliances with smart meters in houses. The system will be installed at BRE Innovation Park, near Watford, to allow testing and further evaluation.
