Products for Home Energy Monitoring
and Solar Optimization
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
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.
