Stroom / Stroom

Stroom
Stroom

Stroom monitors and controls power use in the home. Up until this product, the only data available to the average consumer in regards to power use has been limited to the bill we get from the power company every month. With Stroom we can now see how much money we spend on lighting, food storage, entertainment, and every other use. It doesn't stop there. Stroom can also unplug the devices in our homes when they are not in use, like our televisions and coffee pots. The television alone can cost the average user $170 in trickle charge costs a year. It communicates its data through liquid.
