What if a piece of software could inform you about the energy utilisation of your home, push you to take the washed clothes out of your washing machine, warn you to switch off the extra appliances and just turn your home into the ‘smart home of the future’?

What if a piece of software could inform you about the energy utilisation of your home, push you to take the washed clothes out of your washing machine, warn you to switch off the extra appliances and just turn your home into the ‘smart home of the future’?

Well yeah, Neurio is the next answer to home automation! Their campaign on Kickstarter, which had an initial target of 95,000 CAD, raised over 260,000 CAD last year. Over two thousand supporters jumped in to fund their campaign in return for a reward level that promised supporters that they would be one of the first to use the Neurio technology and receive the product at $129 instead of the launching price of $229.

The system is comprised of three major parts: the sensor: which relies on current transformers to measure users energy usage and from there it sends the details via Wi-Fi to the users, the cloud receives the data through the Neurio app and enables users to see the consumption in real-time.

No doubt, their home intelligence technology has something which is attracting consumers and has an upper hand when it comes to understanding energy usage over many other technologies on the market.

The first batch of product units have already reached the Kickstarter supporters and the next  batch of units is estimated to be out by the end of the year. Go ahead and order your Neurio here.
