Hello Smart Things Community,
I’d like to introduce you to Curb, the whole home intelligence energy monitor. With just one device you can track the power consumption of up to 16 different circuits all in real time. We’ve been working with the SmartThings team for a few months and we are wrapping up our integration as we launch the product in the coming weeks. I wanted to reach out to the larger SmartThings community to both introduce our new product as well as help identify any additional features that we should prioritize for our integration with the SmartThings system. Below is a quick rundown of our existing feature set and I’d love to answer any specific questions and generate a conversation about what we can do together with greater integration.
With so many smart home solution controlling only a single device, we built Curb with the goal of providing users with a holistic view of their home. Naturally, we wanted to add the ability to control devices and found SmartThings to be a great partner.
- Monitor total home consumption + 16 additional circuits (including
- Real time consumption view (total home and by circuit)
- Push notification alerts based on any abnormal energy consumption
(Accidently left the iron on? Curb has you covered!)
- Energy savings recommendations engine
- Integration with SmartThings in Curb app (once fully approved)
You can also download the Curb app from either the iOS or Android store for a demo tour of the features.
One of the areas that we’ve been working on is pushing all of the energy information from each circuit into the ST platform so that each of your devices/areas becomes a “thing” that can trigger other events. For example, if the fridge door is accidentally left open, it could trigger lights in the rest of the house to flash. With Curb, all of your devices can become triggers…
Looking forward to hearing your feedback and thoughts on how we can power our homes smarter!
