Products for Home Energy Monitoring
and Solar Optimization

EcoDog’s FIDO Home Energy Monitoring System oversees energy use throughout the home, on a room-by-room basis. The software interface, which runs on a home PC, combines this data with current pricing information from the utility. Using patent-pending algorithms, the software displays recommendations of ways in which the consumers can reduce their electric bills. Users can identify, where they are using the most electricity and pro-actively make cost-saving changes.

Real-World Energy Savings:

For one homeowner, the user-friendly software interface showed that a basement dehumidifier was consuming excessive energy. Following the software's recommendation to consider using an EnergyStar rated appliance, the homeowner replaced the device with a newer model and saved nearly $90 per month.

When used in conjunction with controllable switches and appliances,
the system can automatically carry out recommendations that involve turning off appliances and outlets when not in use based on the homeowners' preferences.

Solar System Optimization

As an added benefit for homes with solar installations, EcoDog's FIDO system shows savings (or earnings) from solar input at a glance, monitors loads for maximum return on investment, tracks energy generation over time in KWHr and actual dollars and compares consumption versus generation. See our solar monitoring flyer PDF.

FIDO can show homeowners not just how much they are generating, but how much and where they are using energy throughout their home.  In addition, FIDO's utility billing analytics allow the homeowner to see energy production, generation and net in dollars and cents, not just watts.  More importantly, FIDO tells homeowners where they have money saving opportunities in the home and the financial impact of taking advantage of those opportunities.
