The once futuristic idea of a home filled with devices that can learn and respond to your ever-changing needs is now a reality as smart home technology has become more accessible and affordable than ever before. From learning thermostats and light bulbs, which adjust based on whether there are people in the room, to smart plugs which allow you turn things on and off remotely from your smartphone, there are a variety of high tech devices that can help save money, increase energy-efficiency, and bring more convenience to your life.
However, with so many different brands and devices to choose from, it can be a challenge for utility customers to figure out what kind of smart home technology fits their needs. Smart home devices are typically connected to a central device that controls them all at once and ensuring that their new products are compatible can be a frustration for them. The wide range of devices available to them can lead to analysis paralysis and cause confusion among buyers. They might even start to think that smart homes are just too gimmicky to be worth it!
That’s where EFI Kits come in, taking the guesswork out of buying products and providing a low-cost way for utility customers to dip their toes in the energy-saving benefits of connected smart home devices. These packages are fully branded to match your company’s brand and bundle together a curated smart home starter kit delivered straight to your customers’ doors. EFI Kits ensure all devices are fully compatible to work together and cover a wide variety of items - from LED light bulbs to smart thermostats to water conservation products and beyond!
Smart homes put the power of connectivity in your customers’ hands and give them more control over how their homes use energy. EFI Kits can help utilities reach their EE goals while saving customers money, a welcomed perk while opening the door to making smarter energy-efficient choices!

We had just moved to our new home and really needed to shore up the heating system, figure out how we could afford new windows (they were original), and find out why our heat never stayed in the house. We worked with MassSave and EFI to assess our home, qualify for, and fulfill a heat loan. We were up and running with a new heating system, with a zero interest heat loan in about a week! This couldn't have been easier, and, to be honest, more needed. Thank you EFI and MassSave!Ryan D, Mass Save Marketplace Customer

We worked with EFI to create a product marketplace to offer our customer base an easy to use shopping portal. Our goal this year was to move 500K bulbs across all of our jurisdictions, and the EFI's marketplace and marketing expertise ensured that that number was hit by Q3. These guys know what they are doing, its just that simple.Ron S. Manager – Planning and Evaluation
I am always very happy with your service. I am proud that you want to help us save energy - I bought a ton of light bulbs. Thank you for being one of the few services I use that I can feel good about!Tracey Kitchens - Marketplace Customer
