Eyedro Product Review: Wireless Home Electricity Monitor 

Eyedro product review – here is what Paul King, editor at pocketables.com has to say about Eyedro’s Wireless Home Electricity Monitor:

“The Eyedro Wireless Home Electricity Monitor is a device that lets you monitor your electricity use by the minute from a web page. There’s also a wired version of the Eyedro Home Electricity Monitor should you wish to save $60 that appears to be the same equipment and service, and they have a version more suited to businesses, but I’m reviewing the wireless flavor.

You can access the info on any device with a modern browser, and if you have an Echo you can ask Alexa what your energy usage is.”

Commercial Tenant Electricity Sub-Metering: Landlord Feels That Tenant Is Using More Power than Budgeted in Lease Agreement

In this case study we illustrate how Eyedro has been put to use resolving a commercial tenant electricity sub-metering dispute between the tenant and the landlord of a large commercial building.  As can be seen from the Eyedro real-time electricity monitoring graph data above, a tenant of a commercial building displayed an excessive electricity usage pattern that persisted for 12 hour periods.  This usage was very much out of line with that of the other tenants in the building.

After some investigation it was discovered that the tenant was testing some power hungry new technology.

Via Eyedro, the  landlord was able to show the tenant their actual electricity usage as well as the time period (in this case during peak electricity rate hours).

Because the landlord was sub-metering each tenant and tracking power consumption with an Eyedro Electricity Monitoring system, they were able to pinpoint the tenant’s unusual electricity consumption.  The tenant’s commercial lease was then renegotiated in a way that was fair to both parties.

The landlord ultimately recovered more than $1200 in electricity costs per year from this one customer alone!

Environmental Stewardship with Eyedro: Earth Day 2017

Earth Day April 22nd, 2017: Environmental Stewardship with Eyedro Electricity Monitoring

Founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, the very first Earth Day was held in 1970 as a reaction to his concern that environmental issues were not considered important politically or by society in general. Senator Nelson’s initial efforts gave rise to world-wide environmental stewardship activities including the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act in the United States.

For additional biographical information on Senator Nelson and the founding of Earth Day check out Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Today, around the globe, more than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day events which are coordinated by the non-profit organization Earth Day Network.

Here in Canada, Earth Day activities include community tree planting, recycling seminars, volunteer litter clean up, and open house demonstrations at local composting facilities.  For more information and programs in your community see Earth Day Canada.

Remote Electricity Monitoring During Storm: Case Study

Eyedro Remote Electricity Monitoring Can Alert You to Potential System Failures in Your Home

With Eyedro’s remote electricity monitoring capability it is possible to protect the assets in your home even when you are on vacation.

The MyEyedro screen capture below shows the electrical signature of a home owner’s sump pump.  The signal dropped out during a severe weather event.

The home owner was sent an email alert of a power failure and subsequent restoration of power. This is significant because the home owner was out of the country at the time.

When the home owner checked his MyEyedro account, he could tell by the waveform created that the sump pump was working very hard to catch up after the power was restored.

Because the home owner received an Eyedro power failure alert and was able to monitor the situation remotely, there was time to contact a neighbour and prevent the possible burn-out of the sump pump motor and subsequent basement flooding.

Eyedro real-time electricity monitoring systems with cloud based software – monitor and protect your home no matter where you are in the world.

Let Eyedro help you keep an eye on your Hydro!
