Re: (7.30 REPORT): AskNewEnergy - Energy Storage Solutions (8.00pm - 8.30pm EST)

Please explain how/if the batteries can be used to provide off grid power to my house on a routine basis but, at the same time, be an effective backup power source (like a UPS) in case of blackout. I would have thought that, if blackout happened at a time when battery was low, it wouldn't provide any useful emergency backup.

Thanks elynchbell. Also interested in remote management of the battery - eg smartphone or web interface when away from home... and whether or not it will be able to interface with any of the increasingly available home automation hubs/technologies.

Maybe something like... I'm in jungles of the Amazon with no idea a cyclone is approaching my house. But my Ninja Sphere home automation device (or IFTTT) knows the storm is coming and so tells the battery to fully charge itself and don't allow any devices to draw power... in case of blackout. There are heaps of scenarios that could be imagined... mostly related to weather conditions I suppose.
