WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 16, 2019) – A new Pepco program is helping Maryland customers turn their home into a "smart home," providing new tools and information that can save customers even more money and energy all year long.

Becoming part of the Smart Home Pilot is about more than just saving energy and money. Joining the program also helps customers save time by making everyday household tasks more convenient. All of the Smart Home Kit's energy-saving devices connect to a gateway hub that is included in the kit. The hub empowers customers to automate tasks they would normally handle manually, like setting the temperature or turning lights on and off.
Customers can also get energy-saving tips based on their unique needs. They can choose to get alerts when doors or windows are opened, or other motion is detected, when they are away from home—so they can stay in control of energy use, no matter where they are.
Enrollment is determined by a screening process and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
