User Interface Design for Energy Consumption Management App
Iflo helps you to find patters in consumption of electricity you might not be aware of, allowing you to make decisions accordingly. One example would be to consider the time the sun will set during the next year and programing the system so the light at the front of the house will be turn on exactly at the moment there is no more sun light and to turn off next morning with the first rays of light.
Saving energy is good for the environment and great for your pocket. Iflo allows you to have a better control of how much your business, industrial facility and home spend on electricity. Now saving money and being more energy efficient easily could be done from any cellphone or computer with internet connection.
You also can simulate your are at home if while you are taking long vacations in Hawai or even better, play a prank and tell your friends your house is haunted. It is very easy to create and modify a schedule, giving you more control over the periods you want to use energy without spending too much time on the application.
Iflo helps you to estimate the total consumption of electricity and the way it was used in different areas. At the same time it can shut down an area where energy is not needed, preventing the “vampire power waste”. Every single electronic device connected to an output consumes energy, does not matter if it is turn off. Experts estimate that standby energy drain accounts for anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of an average home’s annual power usage.
Without Iflo, preventing “vampire power waste” turns into an impossible mission. You can keep your planet in mind and try unplugging items when they’re not in use, but consider all those areas where it is impossible to reach the outlet, like behind the dishwasher. And nobody wants the hassle of plugging and unplugging a dozen devices several times a day every time you want to use your computer.
Iflo offers the possibility to shut down or reconnect the energy at will, it even gives the option to lock the energy supply of this areas with two levels of security. The first one requires confirmation from the user, so this area will not be disconnect or connected by mistake, and the second is password protected, so the user cannot chance the state of the tab if that person is not autorize to do it. You do not want to accidentally mess around with your grandpa’s breathing machine.
