Home Energy Consumption Monitoring & Saving
With iHome you can easily connect all electrical power outlets and electrical loads to the home automation control system to measure your power consumption. This will help you understand where you spend your money on electricity and help you save on your monthly bill.The added advantage of connecting your outlets also let’s you control appliances such as lamps, fans and other mobile devices.
More advanced systems can even automatically define different types of electric consumption for each load – critical, important and optional – and automatically start turning off the different types of electrical loads when you go over a certain consumption. This is extremely useful when you run your power from a generator, if you have tiered pricing for your electricity or if you care about the environment.
