About this project

Be part of the GREEN REVOLUTION! Reduce your ENERGY FOOTPRINT! GreenResolve Home Energy Monitor will change YOUR PARADIGM!

The GreenResolve Home Energy Monitoring system is the perfect way to know how much energy everyday products in your home are consuming.  This system can help you REDUCE YOUR ENERGY FOOTPRINT already on the first day of use!

A WORKING PROTOTYPE has already been developed and tested in a real home. It works great! Here is what a prototype unit looks like.  The production units will look slightly different as I plan to refine the design as soon as funding is achieved.

Here is what the system's USER INTERFACE looks like.  My prototype system contains 3 energy monitors for a total of 18 monitored electrical panel circuits.  The circuits highlighted in bold red text are exceeding the threshold that I have set for each one. It's time for me to take action and turn some devices off!

This 10 minute video shows the working prototype in more detail.  It covers the system components and shows a LIVE DEMONSTRATION of the system and its features.

Each unit can be used to monitor up to six 20-amp circuits in your home. Up to four units can be installed together in a system, for a total of 24 MONITORED CIRCUITS. The image below shows what a full system looks like when installed in an electrical panel.

The system is EASY TO INSTALL in your home electrical panel.  You can install it yourself or have an electrician install it for you.  All that is required to start monitoring is a panel box with sufficient space, a home WiFi network, and an Android or Apple smartphone or tablet! 

The smartphone app is SIMPLE TO USE.  It gives audible and visual notifications when individual areas in your home (circuits) are consuming more than the limit you set, allowing you to take action and turn energy consuming products off!  It is especially useful when people forget to turn off TVs, lights, computers, electric heaters, and other products in your home that consume precious energy!  The app shows all circuits and how much energy each one is using.  It's exciting to watch as you turn devices in your home off and see the energy usage go down in real time!

The funds from this project will be used for final engineering, agency certifications, production ramp-up, and full production.  The overall project is estimated to take approximately 12 MONTHS AFTER FUNDING has been achieved.

I am completely MOTIVATED to get started working on this project to share the benefits of GreenResolve with conservation minded people like you!

Back this exciting project today to start your own PARADIGM SHIFT!

Risks and challenges

To minimize risk, an assessment has already been done by a professional power engineer to determine that this product, after final engineering, will adhere to all relevant safety standards. Also, a working prototype has been produced and tested in a real home continuously for an extended period of time, and it works great. That being said, there is still a small risk that, after funding, the project could run into engineering roadblocks that prevent successful full-scale production. In the unlikely event that the project fails to result in a product, I will refund all of the unused funds to the backers of this project.
