Created by Whisker Labs in collaboration with the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), this energy monitoring sensor could help revolutionize smart home energy consumption.

The sensor works by being affixed onto a breaker box or electrical panel within a home to instantly enable users to monitor how much electricity is being consumed. The data collected is sent through the Internet to a user's smartphone to instantly offer information pertaining to how much energy is being used and provide real-time insights.

The energy monitoring sensor from Whisker Labs is beyond easy to install and simply requires being placed on the relevant spot by a consumer. The device can offer extended functionalities in smart homes by allowing users to see how much energy is being used by individual appliances and products.
