Nest for Electricity? Ecoisme Offers Full Control Over Home Power Usage

How much power is currently being wasted in your house? Ecoisme, a Krakow, Poland-based startup that launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign Wednesday, aims to change that — with a device that automatically detects all the electrical appliances in your house and gives you a detailed overview of their power usage. Alexander Diatlov, co-founder and CMO of Ecoisme, calls the solution "Shazam for electricity in your house." The Ecoisme device needs to be plugged into a socket, but also connected to your main power line via a clamp. Then it analyzes the noise made by each appliance — its unique electrical fingerprint.
