Control your energy use in real time from anywhere



Parents know firsthand the challenges of keeping energy bills under control, especially when their children are home alone. Let’s say homeowner Hank’s daughter has a habit of turning the air conditioner to arctic temperatures when he’s not home, leading to unnecessary energy consumption and higher bills. It’s frustrating, but it also highlights the importance of keeping track of your household’s energy use. When Hank tries to speak with his daughter about this problem, it’s hard for her to understand the connection between “a temperature that allows her to snuggle up under blankets in the middle of the summer” and “the cost of electricity”.

One possible reason why kids crank down the AC? Hoodies. Do they ever take them off? 


Arcadia offers a solution that can help you and your family save energy and money while promoting sustainability. Energy monitoring apps allow you to track your household’s energy use in real-time, so you can see exactly how much energy you’re consuming and how much it costs. You can also set alerts to notify you when your energy use exceeds a certain threshold, helping you stay on top of your energy consumption and avoid unnecessary expenses. Best of all, electricity usage tracking apps are made to be user-friendly and accessible, so Hank can easily show his daughter how to use it and teach her the importance of energy conservation. Paired with a solar-powered home? Hank, and everyone else who joins him, will never have to fear the arrival of the utility bill again.

Smart home apps can send alerts if your refrigerator door is left open or when it’s time to replace that AC filter.
