Apps for Energy II

OptiZen

Be One With Your Home

 

Save money on your home energy bill by setting monthly spending goals in dollars. OptiZen will send you a notification when high energy use is detected and perform home optimization by turning off lights and smart appliances and thermostats down.

 

About:

Brought to you by the San Diego Apps for Energy 2014 contest winners. OptiZen connects your green button data, smart thermostats, smart outlets and mobile tools to let you automatically reach your energy spend goals.

 

How:

A customers pairs their devices and their green button electric usage data. When daily usage goes outside of monthly spend goals a optimization notification is triggered. When the notification is received on the customers phone, email, etc they have the opportunity to participate. If they do, pre-determined connected appliances will turn off and their in-home temperature will be changed to lower energy usage.
