Intelligent Energy Monitoring System Ecoisme Raising Crowd Funding

A new Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has already raised nearly half of its goal in under a week, with the hopes to fund an intelligent energy monitoring system.

Ecoisme bills itself as an “The World’s Most Intelligent Home Energy Monitoring System,” and aims to bring a single device to market that will allow anyone to better monitor their energy usage. More than simply tracking the energy consumption of all your devices — from TV to lightbulbs — Ecoisme will also provide recommendations on how to reduce energy usage, as well as provide you with alerts when devices are left on.

“With Ecoisme you don’t need to worry if you forget to switch off the iron or AC, if your kids left the lights on in the middle of the night, or if the refrigerator door has been left open,” write the inventors on their Indiegogo page. “Ecoisme will help you to take care of this.”

With already over $20,000 raised at the time of writing (of a hoped-for $50,000 funding goal), Ecoisme seems to have won over the hearts of millions — especially if the range of press coverage the campaign has received is anything to go by.

The Ecoisme system aims to provide a range of alerts and data, so that the average homeowner can make intelligent and insightful decisions regarding their energy usage. You can track energy from air conditioning, heating, appliances, entertainment systems, and more, all on one easy to view dashboard (see below), as well as receive relevant suggestions and tips on “how to improve and reduce your energy usage.”

And, unsurprisingly, Ecoisme will also provide alerts to your smart phone if you forgot to switch off the iron, air conditioner, stove, etc. It goes further than that, as well, letting you know if you left the refrigerator door open, or even if you left the window open on a hot summer day.

Of course, Ecoisme is ready to integrate with other systems as well — including the ever-popular Nest and smart light-bulbs.

Hopefully we’ll be able to get a system to test, one day, so that we can let you know if it meets its goals, but for now, Ecoisme is looking pretty neat, in a day and age where a wide variety of people are looking to make energy-efficient decisions in their own homes.
