Eliminate Energy Sucking Appliances with the Neurio Home Energy Monitor #IoT

Neurio_packageThe rising residential energy costs are challenging consumers to seek alternatives. Unfortunately running around and making sure lights and appliances are turned off 24 hours a day is not practical solution.

Having experienced a spike in my energy bill and spending many hours troubleshooting to determine that something as simple as your furnace fan can cause a significant jump in your electricity bill I started to research for a simple solution that can help me isolate my home energy vampire.

Vancouver based Neurio has developed a simple, cost-effective technology solution that will assist households in meeting the rising cost of home energy. The Neurio Home Energy Monitor is a home solution that provides real-time energy surveillance from the fingertips of your smart device.

Neurio HEM 5The Neurio IoT solution begins with their Energy Sensors that are installed in your electricity box in less than 15 minutes through 4 basic steps

  1. Mount the sensor
  2. Connect the voltage cables and current transfers
  3. Connect the Antenna
  4. Check your work

For electrical novices (such as myself), you can simply contact your local electrician for help installing the sensor.

Connect your Smartdevice to the Neurio WIFI network and then configure the smart sensors by opening your internet browser to . Follow the instructions on the web page (ie enter your home SSID, authentication information etc). Neurio will let you know at the end of the configuration that the information is correct with a single long chime.

The Neurio smart app works with both IOS and Android devices. Operating the Neurio Home Energy Monitor is child’s play. You can easily view your real time consumption or perform audits of appliances that are always on to determine what are the home energy vampires.

In addition to this the bill forecasting options allows you to determine (based on hourly energy costs) when it is most cost effective to run appliances.

Finally there is a Smart but Simple solution that works for consumers. With Neurio you do not need to have a degree in Electrical engineering to troubleshoot and isolate devices or a PhD in mathematics to determine the impact on your pocketbook.
