A central system communicates with each power outlet to understand energy usage and that helps track which sockets are using power.

Exhibiting at this year’s CES, TriCascade showed off their smart home energy system. The system both tracks and manages domestic energy levels.

In this set up, a central system communicates with each power outlet to understand energy usage, which in turn helps track which sockets are using power — including those vampire-like chargers. The system allows different zones to be put in low-energy mode — say when the family goes to bed — and also offers the option to program energy supply to rooms for times in the future. The system can be accessed remotely using an iPhone app for residents away from home which is useful for people with weekend rental properties, or who travel often for business.

This ‘rough cut’ video we shot at CES 2012 shows a demonstration of the technology:
