How does Luqas work?

Luqas manages energy flows in the residence. It controls the large electrical consumers (heat pump, boilers, charging station) based on your current energy usage. Thanks to the convenient energy slider, you decide what you want to consume. Luqas notifies you in case of overuse or high peaks* and through the Qbus Control app, you have a simple overview of your energy consumption and yield. Luqas gives you back control over your energy bill.

 

*Only with Luqas Control or Luqas Dynamic Control subscription.

 

Luqas is connected to the digital meter and knows how much electricity is currently being purchased or injected. Based on that information, Luqas will control a heat pump (via smart grid) or two electric boilers (via 2 relay contacts) and 2 charging stations. Luqas ensures that:

 

  • When there is a surplus of energy generated via the solar panels, this energy is buffered by increasing the temperature of the heat pump / boilers (= Autoconsumption).
  • If consumption is too high, the charging station and/or the heat pump/boilers are turned down for a certain time.

If, after this automatic control of the connected high consumers, too much electricity is still being used, potentially exceeding your quarter-hour peak, Luqas sends you a message* so that you can intervene yourself if desired (lowering the stove, delaying the dishwasher or washing machine, etc.). Avoiding these peaks in consumption is described as "peak-shaving".

 

*Only with Luqas Control or Luqas Dynamic Control subscription.

 

Thanks to 3 convenient subscriptions, you determine how much control you have over your energy. Choose basic functions with Luqas View or opt for more control with Luqas Control. Do you have a dynamic tariff? Then go for Luqas Dynamic Control and choose the time when you want to consume energy.
