Internet of things is getting more and more into our everyday lives.  Somehow it seems scary, but on the other hand – it makes your life easier.

That’s not a secret –  people can be very forgetful: to close the doors, to switch off the lights, to regulate heating system by leaving the house. So technology has been made to resolve and control these “problems” with your smart phones, tabletes or computers. Just like a remote control.

NEXIA home intelligence system uses the latest wireless technology  known  as Z-Wave that has become a standard in home automation.

Today all countries, individuals, and companies seek to reduce energy consumption. The aim of governments is to achieve sustainability in the environment and the companies and individuals to reduce energy costs.
The company Enlighted Inc. released a product dedicated to reducing the power consumption of light.

Using sensors coupled to the lamps, you can regulate the power consumption. The sensors are connected to a system for preventing the excess energy. Each sensor makes a decision every few minutes to ensure the most efficient use of energy.

There are other less complex mechanisms, which soon will be used in homes, such as who created the company PG & E. This mechanism provides real-time electricity and gas consumption.Thus, the consumer may account for the amount of energy consumed daily.
