The Sure House’s Electric Energy Home Monitoring System with Arduino and NeoPixels #Arduino

NewImage

Thanks to AJ for sending this in!

I put together an entry on our Popular Science blog for a home energy interface we are developing for our solar home project. The house is called SURE HOUSE and I’d be happy to fill you more in on the project. The interface is utilizing Arduino + Neopixel and I thought you might be interested in reposting.

Regards,

A.J.

From Popular Science:

The SURE HOUSE is implementing tons of sensors to capture all sorts of data both inside and outside the home including measurements of energy consumption from our various appliances and energy production from our solar array. One of our side projects has been to develop a building integrated interface that, through physical interaction, can inform a homeowners as to their energy ‘budget’ and ‘expenses’. Some of our students went ahead to prototype this interface which will eventually make its way into the house and access data from the home server storing all the sensor data. Ultimately, we hope that by informing users of their habits and usage we can encourage them to use less energy.
