At first, the title may not make much sense – it will by then end of this post. I found this gadget online this morning.


This thing is called the, “Wattson.” It provides a method of understanding how much energy your home consumes. It has a sensor, which takes a measurement of the overall domestic energy consumption (as well as assessing individual appliances). It displays the reading as a number – such as a how many dollars your spending or watts your using (to name a few).

The red light will dim according to how much power your electronics are consuming through the outlets. The devise works wirelessly and stores the energy data. It can be downloaded onto your computer for long-term chronological reports on your home’s energy use.
