Current energy usage

You have always been able to view your historical energy usage in our app. With the latest update of the app, you can now also view your current total usage. Next to your total usage, it also gives insight into your generated and your returned energy. This enables you to monitor your home even more tightly than before!

Try it! Go to the “Energy” item in your freshly updated app and directly see the impact of a device on your system.

“What will Be Next”

Going Dutch
Do you like stroopwafels, fietsen and gezelligheid? Congratulations, you are most likely Dutch! Our interface is now fully available in Dutch. You can set your language in your profile preferences. Veel plezier!

Energy tariffs
The tariffs for your energy were always fixed. Now you can set the tariffs for Electricity and Gas yourself. With this new feature you are able to calculate your costs more specifically.
If you want to know what your personal tariffs are, go to the website of your energy provider or take a look at your energy bill. To set your personal tariff, log in to your account and go to Setup – Energy.
Climate change
Sometimes we forget, but the highest energy costs for our homes and offices goes to usage of gas, which is used to keep room temperatures leveled. Save energy by using your smartphone, tablet and/or PC to regulate the room temperature. With the Radiator Control BeNext offers you additional savings and comfort in one. For more information, go to our website.

Save money on your gas bill
You save money using our system. Whether it is by creating awareness about your energy usage or automatically switching your devices. We provide it all, while you decide. However, you can still go much further.

Did you know that the costs of gas are usually higher than the energy and water bills combined, especially in the cold winter months? With our new Radiator Control you can influence the temperature of your rooms (so your gas usage) separately. This way, you decide where you want comfort and where you want to save money by simply turning the temperature up or down.

You set up the Radiator Control by easily creating a weekschedule to automatically control your rooms’ temperature. Of course, you can always set the temperature manually on the Radiator Control itself or from your smartphone.

The Radiator Control will be available by the end of February. You can already pre-order yours in our webshop.
