EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED
Belkin Echo Electricity monitoring is getting ready to
NOW PILOTING ACROSS
THE UNITED STATES
Belkin’s Echo Electricity sensing system detects current and voltage signatures within a building’s electrical circuit using a single sensor that can be placed at the meter, breaker box, or in an outlet. These signatures are analyzed using advanced machine learning-based algorithms that can determine exactly which devices are being used, when they are being used and how much electricity they consume. This information can show a homeowner or building manager where electricity is being wasted, which devices need replacement or repair, and can also provide valuable insight into patterns of use and occupancy, enabling other valuable applications such as home security or assisted living. The data can also provide feedback to home and building information systems to make sure efficiency “just happens,” without the need for human intervention. Echo Electricity is still in development, and is currently piloting in homes across the United States. Pilots to improve the efficiency of United States Department of Defense Military Bases are scheduled to begin in late 2013.
