So I am about to become a homeowner and I’m trying to figure out the way to modernize my home so I could save money and possibly save the planet by using less energy. I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if I could turn the air conditioning off from my iphone?
In walks in Econetix and their brilliant Bright Spark kits.
Do-It-Yourself Kit consists of intelligent light sockets, thermostats and powerstrips and is designed to be our easy to install, do-it-yourself offering
Accommodates the expanding landscape of home consumer devices with complex energy management requirements such as DVR, Routers, Laptops, Cable Modems.
All these components hook up to wifi and then you can control them using your iPhone (there sure is an app for that) or a web interface. It also monitors your power consumption and can deal with putting your devices into “sleep mode” when you’re not using them. The kit doesn’t come out until 2010 but you bet that I’ll be first in line to buy one!
