Prefect / Home energy monitoring system

Prefect
Prefect

Prefect is a family of wireless sensors capable of tool-free installation to every water and gas pipe, as well as any electrical cord in a home in order to track the water, gas, and electrical consumption of specific appliances.
It allows a user to track household utilities in precise detail thanks to current sensors and compact ultrasonic flow meters.
With a multi-platform app, a user can call up information about their gas, water, and electricity consumption at the touch of a screen. Prefect can compare information from any week, day, or hour to another, in order to identify inefficient appliances and behaviors.
