What Is a Smart Home?

A “smart home” is one that is equipped with household products and devices that streamline daily tasks like turning the lights on and off. These smart devices connect to a single gateway hub that allows them to communicate. You set up rules to control the devices with an app and they work together to optimize your home.

When your Delmarva Power Smart Home Kit arrives, we can help you easily install smart devices like plugs, LEDs, and motion and entry sensors. These devices will work together to help your home run more efficiently—with little effort on your part.

Why Participate?

Delmarva Power’s Smart Home Pilot takes the guesswork out of getting smart home technology up and running. You’ll enjoy the energy savings and increased comfort—at no additional cost!

When you enroll, you’ll be able to:

  • Monitor and control lighting, home appliances, and other devices remotely. Anytime, anywhere.
  • Receive notifications about your home’s energy use and get personalized energy-saving tips.
  • Get alerts when doors or windows are opened, or other motion is detected, when you are away from home.
  • Save energy by using automated smart home rules customized to your specific energy needs.

Learn More About the Smart Home Devices:

The Gateway hub connects to your home internet using the provided Ethernet cable. As the centralized hub for all of your Delmarva Power Smart Home devices, it enables you to control and monitor your smart home from any location using your iOS or Android device.

Temperature and Humidity Sensors make your smart thermostat even smarter and help ensure that you're comfortable in any room during any weather.

Motion Sensors detect motion in your home using infrared technology. They help your Delmarva Power Smart Home detect occupancy, so you can set them up to turn lights on and off automatically to make sure your home stays energy efficient.

Smart Plugs control and monitor household electronics like your entertainment center, small kitchen appliances, and office equipment via your mobile device. You can schedule your plugs to turn on and off at certain times and monitor how much energy certain appliances use. This can help identify which household items might be consuming the most energy.

Smart LEDs enable you to switch your lights on and off using your mobile device. Whether you or an occupant forgets to turn off the living room light or wants to return to a well-lit home, smart LEDs can make saving energy easy and convenient.

Entry Sensors monitor your doors and windows to ensure you avoid accidentally wasting energy by having one open while your heat or air conditioning is on. If a window or door is opened or closed during active heating or cooling of your home, these sensors will send an alert to your phone.


This pilot is designed to test the impact of smart devices on residential energy use. Enrollment is determined by a screening process and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit our enrollment portal today to see if you're eligible!
