Home Electricity Alerts On Your Mobile Phone
Smart households are realising one easy solution to reducing home electricity, is to monitor the usage 24/7. Now whilst this is not a hard task when in the home with a wireless home energy monitor, what happens when you leave the home?
The solution is to combine technologies. Whereby the energy monitor sends it's data to the internet via a computer home energy monitor software program. In this case the software sending electricity usage alerts online to twitter, a social networking platform. Once these alerts are on Twitter, they can be either be monitored via a smart phone or sent from twitter via SMS automatically. See Energy_Monitor on Twitter as an example of this.
This is a great joining of technologies allowing for easy home energy monitoring whilst on the go. A solution that can easily be applied to small business, where monitoring the power supply could relate to profitability and safety.
An example here could be a battery business charging batteries over the weekend. Being able to keep an eye on the current drawn by charging devices. A dramatic change in the difference maybe pointing to an issue. Instantly alerted and able to rectify any problem!
