Due to the energy and tariff growth of different service segments, many people are looking for different ways to save on these consumptions. Among the two to reduce consumption is Wabee, an application created by an Argentinian entrepreneur that provides tools to control the use of electrical energy and, as a result, cut costs on electricity bills.
The objective, which is promoted on this day, is within the framework of World Energy Efficiency Day, a day created to raise awareness and reflect on the importance of rational energy use.
Claudio Figuerola, CEO and founder of the venture, developed the machine in 2016. As the company has developed, they have made it a “pain” to identify companies that work with managing their electrical energy.
Furthermore, the venture has grown, adding solutions to homes, shops, corporations, SMEs and the tourism sector.
The app allows its users to set a goal and keep it until the day they arrive in relation to the forecast at the end of the month.
In addition, from that information, the trigger can be triggered when more than indicated has been consumed. Also, based on the estimate of monthly consumption, calculate how much will arrive on the bill before the end of the month.
How it works
In order to use the application, it is necessary to install the device, the Data Point Wabee, which must be placed inside the electrical panel. Through a Wi-Fi connection, it collects and transmits parameter data and electrical consumption to the cloud. All data is processed by the Wabee Data Point and displayed on the Wabee Cloud Energy platform.
It is an IoT (Internet of Things) system that can be used both within the home and in the industrial sector, so that decisions can be made for greater efficiency and cost reduction. It should be noted that it is recommended to be carried out by a qualified electrician, since it requires opening the electrical panel and connecting the current sensors to the network service.
Once installed, through the Wabee Cloud Energy platform, users will be able to control and learn more about power quality and consumption. In addition, they will be able to explore historical data and real data.
At the moment, the app is only available for smartphones with the Android operating system. Although the company is currently working to have an iOS and web version available.
