How Is Your Product Unique From Others In The Field?
Existing energy meters are just display devices that inform the residents about the energy consumption. There are no devices in the market that perform two way communication (home appliances to meter and meter to utility company). eCommander is one of its kind that helps both the entities to keep track of the energy consumption. Along with this, it also has various applications like weather information, clock, photo viewer (upcoming) and many more that make this device much more than the energy manager. It is designed to play a major role in today’s smart homes.
