Evaluation

This is a system to habitually avoid waste and to promote an eco-lifestyle by displaying the power consumed by home appliances on an iPhone application. Each device has an individual power cord socket, and the power information read by these sockets is sent to the v-Hub. As users would need a socket for every device they would like to conserve power, the simple socket design that does not standout leaves a good impression. The information sent from appliances is controlled in the cloud, can be checked on an iPhone, and the user interface is intuitive and easy to read. We rate it highly because not only is it ecological, but the user can also send an email notification to turn off an iron or other devices that are in standby mode, it is comfortable, safe, and has security functionality.
