We wanted to cut down energy usage during the peak power time to both save overall energy, therefore limiting reserve power plants from being used as well as save customers money by conserving energy, especially during peak hours.
What it does
It monitors the ways to reduce energy consumption in the home during peak hours and allows you to choose areas to save energy
How we built it
Using a Dragonboard with Arduino software and an Android App
Challenges we ran into
Getting communication between the app and the board
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The sensors work!
What we learned
Sometimes you really do have to stay up all night
