Super Cool Powerhouse Dynamics eMonitor
by Wendy Gabriel
Have you ever wondered how much your clothes dryer really costs you every day? Your home office computers? Your entertainment centers?
I just found an amazing device that allows you to monitor the energy usage throughout your entire home all the time. The Powerhouse Dynamics eMonitor is the world’s first affordable, whole house, circuit by circuit energy monitoring and management system.
The world’s first comprehensive and affordable circuit-by-circuit home energy monitoring and management system is shipping exclusively from Freeport, Maine based EnergyCircle.com.
The eMonitor’s unique combination of hardware, software, and services let you view your home’s 24×7, minute-by-minute electricity use, electricity cost, and carbon footprint, as well as historical information by day, month, or year, all in a personalized and intuitive graphical interface from anywhere you can access the internet. It also provides cost estimates based on current and past usage.
The cutting-edge feature of the eMonitor is its capability to display electricity use by individual circuit so you can see real-time and historical information on major appliances, entertainment centers, and specific rooms. The service keeps you continuously up to speed on your home’s energy usage by providing you with alerts if circuits are overloaded, if there are problems with appliances or your renewable sources, if your electricity usage is unusual, or if your energy bills are approaching a threshold (set by you).
“Circuit by circuit energy monitoring is a significant breakthrough in the category,” said Peter Troast, Energy Circle’s founder and CEO. “Seeing your energy use by appliance and by room is extraordinarily powerful. This simple act of knowing your usage in real time drives better awareness, engages families and produces real savings.”
