My Smart Home Dream to make my house “off-the-grid”
As a smart home tech guy and automater, I’ve always thought about turning my house into an off-the-grid home with all these fantastic smart home technologies. Everything would run by itself, and everything would be powered by renewable energy such as solar or geothermal. I’ve been thinking of solutions to put in your garage or utility room, like the Tesla power wall. Yes, there is some hype on the power wall. However, I also need to figure out if it is practical. It would be great to consider an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) when the electricity goes down.
I’ve even thought about taking a portable generator or inverter with me when I go out camping. There are locations where there is no power at all, and it would be great to keep the lights running in those remote locations or even in emergencies. However, most reliable generators and inverters run primarily on gasoline or diesel. You have to make sure that you have enough fuel to keep those generators running. That’s where the portable battery storage solutions come in. Enter in Bluetti.
