Feature: Power Watch

Since the ISY has a log of all events that go on and usually kicks off certain timed events.

I had this idea where you could chart your power consumption.

You could assign each device a Watt value, and based on how long the device is on could generate how much energy was used by said device. This could also lead to the user inputting the utility company's "cost per watt" and could show the user how much energy their home is using per day, and that by dimming certain devices you could save X dollars. Could also lead to weekly, monthly or yearly chart trends.

 

I know its not a high priority request, but for the sake of our future in this energy aware era, give it a few minutes of thought.

Falco,

 

Excellent idea! As a workaround, can't we already get this information from the information in the log? Is so, are you suggesting that we just add the tools to do this calculation?

 

With kind regards,

Michel
