More often than not, homeowners are unaware of the ways in which power is being unnecessarily consumed, which is what prompted UK-based engineering company 42 Technology to create the Smart Meter -- a personal power bar that measures what devices are drawing the most power in one's home.
The meter gathers its information through an algorithm which was designed to detect special characteristics of particular appliances. After the algorithm has been applied, curious users can access the information through an accompanying smartphone app, which relays the data in a manner that's both accessible and comprehensible.
This Smart Meter from 42 Technology enables consumers to consciously make decisions with regards to what devices should and shouldn't be left on.
