EF-Pi – formerly referred to as FPAI – is the software platform which makes it easier to connect Smart Home Appliances to a Smart Grid. Manufacturers can easily install drivers to connect the device to EFI. With a user friendly interface EF-Pi can easily be configured to various home appliances. EF-Pi runs on a small computer (like a modem of Raspberry Pi), which in turn is connected to all your smart devices (via bluetooth, wifi or zigbee) and with the Smart Grid via internet.
The result: users can configure the appliances to their own needs/usability, monitor their energy consumption and choose with which Smart Grid they want to connect to.
