There are 2 Catch Power models,
Blue Catch is the Flagship model and boasts some pretty clever smarts. It is internet connected and looks at the weather forecast for the next day to make smart decisions about how much off-peak grid power to use overnight in order to deliver sufficient hot water for the following day. Because this model is so smart, you can “set and forget”, however it also comes with a customer portal which allows you to see whats going on with your energy flows and control the system manually if desired. There is also an app coming soon so you can view on your phone or tablet.
Green Catch doesn’t have Internet connectivity like the Blue Catch, it instead uses a manual control to allow you to decide how many hours of off peak power to put to the hot water system each night. Both models are very effective at lowering your quarterly power bill.
