It could save you quite a bit #bill, if only more attention was paid. This is why it was born #BiroRobot, a little #robot created by the physical Marco Santarelli, owner of the energy research company ResOn.
Marco explained that a few years ago he had developed an algorithm to optimize electricity consumption among many users, and the system worked. So it was decided to apply it also inside homes, to analyze the consumption of heat and electricity, according to the presence of people, then indicating how to avoid waste and, consequently, cut bills.
To do this, however, measurements with sensors in the homes. Here's how it was born BiroRobot, a toy robot with heat sensors inside, a wifi system for connecting to the electricity meter and more. The robot can tell if the refrigerator, computer or lights are being used correctly, and so on. Today this robot can perform an energy diagnosis of a medium-sized apartment in just 30 days, mapping it room by room.
For now, BiroRobot is not yet on sale, but it will be next year, at a cost of around 120 euros. BiroRobot is able to save on average 18% of gas and 25% of electricity, so the cost will pay for itself over time.
“BiroRobot - added Santarelli - represents one educational tool which allows people, including children, to become more aware of their behaviors than energy. It can also be a professional energy estimation tool for the companies, recommending potential measures to reduce energy consumption and related costs, also improving the productivity of the plant ".
