Designed to help lower your electricity bill, the Currant smart outlet is a new gadget that uses AI to find patterns in energy consumption. These patterns are further analyzed by the AI to give users a schedule for your gadgets to help save energy. The entire system is incredibly simple to use and easily plugs into an outlet and connects to a smartphone app. According to Hasty Granbery, founder and CEO of Currant, "the key for us here is to make the whole thing as easy as possible.”
While the immediate goal of the Currant smart outlet is to save money for the user, the ultimate goal of the gadget is to persuade people to change their lifestyle to benefit the environment.
