EnergyCloud analyzes your whole-home electricity usage waveforms looking for patterns that match signatures for specific appliance types.  When a match is found, the actual amount of power used by that appliance is calculated.  The EnergyCloud Appliance module uses a learning mode and if it sees a possible match but is not 100% sure, it will ask you if you used a specific appliance at a specific time.  You can speed up the learning process by setting some simple parameters for the appliances you do have.

 

EnergyCloud reports appliance-level usage for appliance “categories” that use the most energy and have the greatest impact on your electricity bill.  Appliances are grouped into categories and are not reported individually.  Typically, however, there are only 1 or two appliances in each category.
