Pour une consommation électrique maîtrisée

limping compact sleek design, Wattson can control the power consumption of a fun and educational way home. It works wirelessly, it is as easy to use as inexpensive.

This little device is the result of research DIY Kyoto, British design studio composed of Greta Corke, Jon Sawdon Smith and Richard Woods, all three graduates of the Royal College of Art in London.

Its operation is very simple, it is indeed necessary to connect a transmitter supplied on the domestic electricity meter so that Wattson communicates with it wirelessly. Equipped with LEDs, then the box will broadcast a bluish light when consumption will be lower than normal, purple when it is normal and red when it is higher than usual. The device will also display the real-time consumption, in watts or currency, indicating the amount that will appear on the next bill. As a pedagogical process that persuasive ...

And because Wattson is inseparable his sidekick, DIY Kyoto suggests to download on its website a software named Holmes. Further, this application allows the user to analyze his habits and energy needs graphically and optimize even more finely consumption.

Wattson is proposed for approximately USD 180 as standard.
