When I have read this article my first thought was….hey I would like to have this in my home :). Leviton has managed to make a smart load breaker box with added WiFi/Ethernet hub that will let you manage each of your circuit breakers from your phone. Some of the benefits of the technology are:

  • it gives you energy usage per every electrical branch which pretty much corresponds to your device
  • it can calculate consumption per device and estimate the electricity bill
  • you can get alerts when your breakers trips or maybe when some of your important devices is not working anymore
  • you have the possibility to remotely shut off a circuit breaker from the app

Anyway, a very cool device and applications so I reckon if the price is right this might sell well.

Here is the press lease.
